Aloe Vera has been used to produce lotions, skin ointments and other beauty products. Use of aloe will help in reducing the growth of fungi which as mentioned above, causes dandruff. It is advisable to use hair products containing aloe for better results.

Omega 3 fatty acids. These are mainly found in fish and its products such as oil. Nuts and Chia seeds can also serve the same purpose. These products help in keeping our skin healthy. 

Wash your hair more frequently. This aids in making sure that your scalp is moisturized. After the wash, apply hair products that are safe for your skin.
