My dandruff problem started after I used a hair tonic for a month or so. I stopped using it but the problem didn't go away, it got worse every day. I tried everything you can think of, nothing helped. It spread to my eyebrows and eventually to my outer ears. I became desperate! Eventually I bought online a tube of Daktarin Cream (miconazole nitrate 2 percent), washed my hair, applied to my scalp, eyebrows and ears, and voila, a miracle!.

How I cured my dandruff was by using Apple Cider Vinegar. Every time I went to the restroom, before taking a shower, I put like an ounce of Apple Cider Vinegar into a spray bottle put some water in to the spray bottle (optional) for smelling purposes because ACV doesn't smell pleasant. So, I sprayed it all around my head. After that, I grabbed a plastic bag (optional) to put on my head so that the ACV won't smell at all. Then, I leave it for about 30 minutes to an hour and then I hit the shower to rinse it off and then wash my hair with my dandruff shampoo. Do this twice a week for best results. .
