Natural Dandruff Remedies: Can Olive Oil Get Rid Of Dandruff?

Oil drop on plain mustard-coloured surface.

Many people have tried to get rid of dandruff using olive oil – but does it really work?

People often use olive oil as a moisturising treatment to tackle a dry, flaky scalp.

And while it may give some temporary relief, it doesn’t do anything to tackle the root cause.

Flakes and dry scalp caused by dandruff are the result of a microbe present on everyone’s scalp – Malassezia globosa.

How to really get rid of dandruff

So to get rid of dandruff, don’t just treat the symptoms temporarily with olive oil – tackle the root cause of the irritation.

That’s how our anti-dandruff shampoos work – they contain zinc pyrithione, which has been proven to get rid of dandruff by tackling the microbe that causes it.

We also include some of the best elements of beauty shampoos like great scents and conditioners to leave your hair soft and smooth.
