When using lemon juice to clear up dandruff, start by applying lemon juice directly to the hair and scalp. Be sure to distribute it evenly, and let it sit for 20 to 25 minutes. It may cause some itching on the scalp, but that is a normal reaction. Wash hair thoroughly, using shampoo if necessary.

For the olive oil method, apply olive oil to the hair and scalp, and let it sit for five to 10 minutes. Wash the hair, and then apply another layer of olive oil to the scalp before going to bed. It helps to wrap a towel or old pillowcase around the hair to absorb excess oil. Hair should be free of dandruff in the morning.

When using egg yolks, mix one or two egg yolks together, and apply the mixture directly to the scalp. Place a plastic bag over the hair to catch any leaking fluids, and let it sit for an hour. Wash hair with a good shampoo to remove the egg yolk. Sometimes it takes two washes to remove all of it.
