Coconut oil is great for hair growth. But, for dandruff, I would recommend the following. Prepare a mixture of thick yoghurt and lemon juice and mix it well. Apply thoroughly to cover complete scalp. Leave it for some time and then shampoo hair. This mixture reduces flaky deposits on the scalp. Lemon is known to be an excellent exfoliant and its acidic properties help scrape off dandruff sediments from the scalp. Neem also possesses anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Its medicinal value for skin ailments is very well accepted. Applying neem paste on the scalp before head wash can yield effective results as fungal infections on the scalp are the root cause of dandruff.
