Q. A few weeks ago someone reporting using Miracle Whip on her scaly flaky scalp. She said that after a couple of hours she had a flake-free scalp and wanted to know why it worked so well.
I think the secret ingredient is vinegar. It’s lots cheaper and less messy than Miracle Whip. There are many web posts on this and, from personal experience, vinegar works great.
A. Other readers agreed that a dilute vinegar rinse helps reduce dandruff. One suggested mixing 4 parts warm water to 1 part apple cider vinegar and using this solution to rinse hair after shampooing. She is 80 and has been using this remedy successfully for 55 years. Other readers use equal amounts of water and vinegar.
