It is an age-old Indian hair care tip handed down through generations, but often ignored — yes, oiling is still one of the most fool-proof ways to maintain healthy hair and is an effective tool against hair problems. Dandruff, for one, is caused when the dry skin on the scalp begins to flake. Whilst there are many products that promise dandruff-removal, natural oils such as onion oil or tea-tree oil are great for abating dandruff, and also soothing the itchiness associated with it. The following hair oils effectively reduce dandruff and additionally boost the overall texture and growth of your hair.

Rich in anti-bacterial onion oil, it is suitable for all types of hair.

Being an anti-bacterial, onion oil is a great treatment against dandruff and other scalp infections. It’s no wonder that it is a recurring ingredient in oil blends. This product combines onion oil with Jamaican black castor oil, Moroccan argan oil, and hibiscus oil, for enhanced hair-shine and moisture. Being 100% natural and free from artificial fragrances or chemicals, it is suitable for all hair types from color-treated to thick, coarse hair. You can even use it as a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment for an at-home spa experience.

Packed with Ayurveda ingredients, this product is also great against hair fall.


Another great natural product, it combines onion oil with the age-old benefits of Ayurvedic herbs such as bhringraj, Brahmi, and amla which are great against dandruff, while also promoting regeneration and regrowth of hair. Gently massage the oil into your scalp and leave it for any time between 2 hours or overnight. For targeted treatment against dandruff, use this hair oil at least 2-3 times a week.

A product that remains true to its Indian roots.

Khadi’s natural products, great prices, and fuss-free packaging have led to their increasing popularity in the last few years. This herbal Ayurvedic formula uses only natural extracts of onion oil enriched with ingredients such as argan oil and amla. Containing no sulphates, parabens, or mineral oils, it is suitable for hair types and can be used multiple times a week for best results.

This product, combining tea tree oil with other cold-pressed oils, makes for a thick formula that has a cooling effect on the scalp.

Tea tree oil has antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. For that reason, it is one of the best treatments against dandruff and can be found in a lot of hair care products. Soulflower’s anti-dandruff oil’s thick formulation combines natural tea tree oil with cold-pressed extracts from castor seeds, sesame seeds, jojoba seeds and olive fruits. It is also great for hair regeneration and reduces hair-fall and hair damage.

Combining multiple herbs and oils, it is a multifaceted product that targets different hair problems.

This anti-dandruff oil combines 7 herbs and oils to heal a dry scalp and eradicate the root causes of dandruff. These ingredients include Vitamin E rich olive oil, bhringraj oil, neem oil, rosemary oil, and other anti-bacterial and anti-fungal ingredients. Apply and gently massage the oil into your hair, especially targeting the roots and scalp. Leave for 30-45 minutes before shampooing, and use it 2-3 times a week for best results.
