Get a small mixing bowl and pour roughly a cup of apple cider vinegar into it. Apple cider vinegar works to stop dandruff because it contains alpha-hydroxy acids which are known to break down and remove the many bacteria on which dandruff is able to live and grow. The build up of this bacteria that dandruff is known to grow on can also be caused by not washing your hair enough. If you do not wash your hair often enough all of the dirt and bacteria will build up on your scalp causing dandruff.
2. Mix in water
