Dealing with dandruff can often be very frustrating. Not only does it makes your scalp itching but it can also lead you to do embarrassing situations at times. The worst part is that even if there are tons of anti-dandruff shampoos and hair products available in the market none of them are useful. So what will one try if nothing seems to work? Well, you can always use Listerine to get rid of dandruff. Yes, we are speaking about the mouthwash Listerine.
It might sound odd and we agree but here is how it works
If you are looking for a solution to cure dandruff, go for Listerine. In fact, during the 50s it was mainly sold as a product which could cure scalp issues.
