Say Adios to Dandruff with this DIY Scalp Treatment

Put simply, dandruff is a bummer and can be downright embarrassing. Fortunately, it is easy to treat naturally. There are multiple causes for dandruff including dry skin, itching, sunburn and inflammatory diseases like psoriasis. Whatever the cause, there is a solution! Use the following routine until your dandruff is gone.

Our Algae Deep Cleanse is most often used as a facial cleanser, but it also makes a great scalp treatment! Featuring peppermint and geranium, the Algae Deep Cleanse will cleanse your scalp and balance the look and feel of your skin, helping to improve the appearance of dandruff and dryness like a charm.


  • Step 1: Mix 1 tablespoon of Algae Deep Cleanse with 1 tablespoon of water.
  • Step 2: Massage it into your scalp and wrap your head in a shower cap, plastic bag or wrap.
  • Step 3: Cover your head with a towel warmed in the dryer.
  • Step 4: Relax for 20 minutes
  • Step 5: Rinse well—do NOT shampoo until the next morning.

If you also use Algae Deep Cleanse as part of your daily skin care routine, here’s a tip: Apply it to your face AND scalp before your shower. Then, rinse well in the shower! How’s that for multitasking?

*Caution: If your hair is color treated, it is best to do a spot test prior to cleansing your entire scalp.

    Thanks for sharing this awesome scalp treatment with us. I really appreciate it. Actually, I was surfing the internet to get a good dandruff solution for my wife. She has a flaky head with dandruff. I guess I have got the best solutions for her. Thanks for sharing with us. Have a good day.
