Ready in about 10 minutes, this DIY dandruff shampoo recipe not only includes several dandruff-fighting ingredients, it’s also gentle enough to use several times a week.


  • 13 ounces (1 can) coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil
  • ½ cup liquid castile soap

  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 20 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 15 drops tea tree essential oil
  • 1 tablespoon ground fenugreek seeds

  3. Add the rosemary and tea tree oil. Continue to whisk.
  4. Lastly, add the fenugreek and make sure all ingredients are thoroughly blended.
