White dandruff flakes on your shoulders can be frustrating and embarrassing. They may be caused by dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, oily skin or by hair care products that irritate the scalp.
Another cause of dandruff is irritation caused by the scalp dwelling fungus, Malassezia globosa. Normally it can take 30 days to make and shed skin cells, but in people with dandruff, the fungus irritates the scalp causing excessive shedding of immature skin cells in just only 2-7 days.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide adds that using harsh detergents, soaps, and chemical-laden shampoos may challenge normal skin bacteria. It recommends instead to shampoo with Melaleuca Original Shampoo once or twice a day while dandruff is present. Leave the Melaleuca Original Shampoo on the scalp for at least three minutes before rinsing. It contains an abundance of healing T36-C5 Melaleuca Oil and works particularly well in the treatment of common scalp conditions such as dandruff. It is gentle enough to be used every day by everyone in the family.
Since this shampoo contains conditioner, do not use an extra conditioner, as it could be a scalp irritant.
Tea tree oil, with its well-known anti-fungal properties, is a natural choice for scalp conditions. Researchers investigated the use of a 5% tea tree oil shampoo on 126 patients. The study concluded that 5% tea tree oil appears to be effective and well tolerated in the treatment of dandruff.
The same healthy diet that nourishes our skin and body improves the health of our scalp and reduces dandruff. Make sure to supplement a healthy diet with the Vitality Pack, the probiotic Florify, and inflammation-reducing Vitality Coldwater Omega-3 or Vitality Omega-3 Creme Delight.

Dandruff was always a problem for me until I tried the Melaleuca Original Shampoo. It not only got rid of the flakes, it made my scalp feel fresh and clean. Thanks!
As a seven year old girl I suffered unbearable sebaceous scalp dandruff. I sat in school and raked and scratched my hair until the scalp was raw. That gave me some relief until the dandruff scabbed over again and returned to itching. Then I dug the scabs until they bled. Today I have no hair follicles on that side. Six years ago my sister sent me a bottle of Melaleuca Original Shampoo. I felt relief and soothing of my scalp as never before. I became a Melaleuca Representative and have never looked back. As my Melaleuca coach says, "This is a Melaleuca house." I wish these personal health and beauty products for everyone. They have changed and enhanced my life. Thank you so much.
I had severe dermatitis on my scalp. I went to the dermatologist and she told me that it was caused from hot flashes which in turn caused night sweats. The areas worst affected were where my head rested on the pillow and made me sweat. This caused a very flaky, sticky, itchy mess on my scalp. This was very bothersome so the doctor prescribed a medication called Taclonex. I went home with some samples, applied it to the area and in two days it was gone. There were three problems though, this medication is now $600.00 for about 4oz., the side effects sounded scary, and the problems all came back within about three to four weeks. Nor could I afford this medication or would I even think of paying such an outrageous price for it. Therefore I decided to purchase some Original Melaleuca Shampoo and try it. I was amazed! Within two weeks the problem was gone. I continue to use it for the first shampoo and leave it on about 5 minutes. I don't care for the smell that much so after rinsing it out I shampoo again with either Sei Bella Ultra Moisturizing or Melaleuca's Herbal Shampoo which leaves my hair smelling and looking healthy. No more itching or flaking. I love Melaleuca's great products! Thank You.
Before I started using Melaleuca products I would have to use medicated shampoo to keep my psoriasis under control. I have always struggled with dandruff, but honestly, the Melaleuca Original Shampoo works! I also will occasional mix a few drops of T36-C5 in a spray bottle with some water, spray my scalp and massage the solution into my scalp. It breaks up any dry skin up and lifts it away! I can't go without my Melaleuca Original Shampoo!
My 15 year old daughter has battled dry scalp for several years. We had to keep changing shampoos because her head would soon start itching again. Since using the Melaleuca Original shampoo, she has had no itching or dryness, and I feel so much better that she is not putting chemicals on her head! Love this stuff!!!
My husband had a terrible time with eczema on his scalp. He had tried everything, even from the doctors, but nothing worked. When we joined Melaleuca 14 months ago he started using the Melaleuca Original Shampoo and it has cleared it up. But he has noticed that if he uses anything else, it comes back. It is the only shampoo for him. A bottle lasts a long time, even though he washes his hair every night.
