How can a vinegar, coconut oil and lemon can be a dandruff control?

A: Old skin cells are constantly shed to accommodate new, healthy cells resulting in flaking. The scalp also sheds dead skin cells. This is a natural process wherein the flakes are usually too small to be seen by the naked eye. However, when the PH balance of the skin is affected, it results in increased sebum secretions from the sebaceous glands that cause the small flakes to cling together and fall off as visible white or yellowish flakes called dandruff. The condition is believed to be caused by a yeast-like fungus called malassezia. Dry skin, pollution, exposure to sunlight and unhygienic conditions also result in excessive flaking.
