Follow these methods and you will surely get rid of your dandruff problems.
So firstly you’ve got to understand how dandruff is formed. Dandruff is formed basically because your scalp is a very active environment it’s constantly producing skin cells and then these skin cells die constantly. And if your scalp is very oily then the skin cells will collect together mix with the oil and form those white flakes that fall off your head when you’re suffering from dandruff.
1. Shampoo less
Every time you shampoo you’re stripping away the natural oils of your scalp.
If you shampoo every day then you’re constantly just stripping these oils away which in longer run damage your scalp resulting in hair fall.
And dry scalp which is one of the factors that lead to dandruff, you can wash your hair with water every day and condition it as well but only shampoo every 2 to 3 days a week.
If you’ve been shampooing every day and then all of a sudden you do it less and you might find yourself with greasy hair for a week or two but don’t worry it’s gonna go away and that’s because your body needs to realize that it doesn’t need to replenish these oils as such fast rate anymore wait it out and not only will your hair be healthier but also you’re gonna get less flakes later on.
2. Use of Hair Products
A lot of men suffer from dandruff because of excess hair product usage.
When you’re applying your hair product like wax, gels, clays, serums, creams and others just make sure that the hair product doesn’t come in contact with your scalp it’s supposed to be applied to the body of your hair and if you apply it to your scalp that increases your dandruff problem.
3. Start using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner
In hot or humid climates the environment around you is actually pulling away that moisture from your hair and your scalp which causes the perfect conditions for dry scalp to form.
This is why lots of guys experience dandruff during the summer months and by switching to hydrating products you’re making sure that your hair is hydrated and moisturized at all times as soon as they’re using hydrating products you’re gonna instantly feel the difference your head will instantly feel refreshed and clean.
4. Take care of your Environment
You’ve gotta care about your environment because at the end of the day dandruff is an infection.
Here are some tips :
- Get your pillowcases cleaned
A lot of times people will use anti dandruff products and then still get dandruff coming and going because the environment is still dandruff infected. Take a pillowcase off your pillows dip it in an antiseptic solution or an antiseptic soap mixed with water and then leave it in that solution for at least 12 hours that’s how you get rid of dandruff.
- Clean your combs and brushes that you regularly use on your hair.
- Clean all kinds of headgear you use like caps hats helmets.
Anything that comes in contact with your scalp. Wash it.
5. Understand home remedies
Without getting into the details much you’ve gotta remember that your skin is slightly acidic if your skin is acidic that’s a good thing because it kills all the harmful bacteria and infections on your skin it’s kind of like a protective layer.
Now what you’ve got to remember is that people who suffer from dandruff the pH of their scalp is slightly off it may not be as acidic as it should be and that’s where the science of home remedies comes in any kind of natural product that slightly acidic will help you cure your dandruff so think of home remedy like curd or lemon .
6. Try Apple cider vinegar
You can put three to four tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in this spray bottle and then fill the rest with water and that’s it
How to use :
After you shampoo you’re gonna spray your entire hair with this mix and then afterwards you’re just gonna let it sit there for five to fifteen minutes just let it soak in and then wash it off using conditioner
This is simple and affordable solution you can do this at home if you have severe dandruff I actually recommend you do this once a week or maybe like once every two weeks.
7. Use a Scalp Brush
Depending on how bad your dandruff is I recommend you use a scalp brush.
I know you’re probably thinking what the hell is a scalp brush.
Well the idea behind this brush is you want to use it when you apply any product to your hair this goes for shampoo this goes for conditioner or even the apple cider vinegar solution that we just talked about this ensures that the product gets deep in there right and also helps remove any stubborn dandruff that might be stuck in your hair and the best part is is that it’s actually massages and exfoliates your scalp preventing any future dandruff buildup.
8. Organic dandruff shampoos
If you’re suffering from dandruff you have to use an anti dandruff shampoo at least once a week but most anti dandruff shampoos contain sulfates parables and other very harmful chemicals that will spoil the quality of your hair in the long term.
Here I will give you a personal recommendation –
Wow apple cider shampoo
