Dandruff is a pesky problem that bothers a lot of men, often as a constantly unwanted companion. Black clothes, snow white flakes, complete turn-off…you know the drill! If you are someone who’s constantly battling with dandruff, here’s how to get to the root (of your scalp) and put your case to rest.
Read on to know how you can easily get rid of dandruff.
Wash your hair often
Infrequent hair washing leads to accumulation or oils and dead skin cells on the scalp which are a major cause for dandruff. Wash your hair at least 2 to 3 times a week to avoid this.
Fix your diet
Loads of carbs and sugar often lead to more oil production leading to dandruff. Add more omega-3 rich foods like walnuts and flaxseeds to your diet and increase your intake of probiotics.
Use apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is known to help maintain pH balance. You can add 2-3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to water and rinse your hair at the end after you’re done with shampoo and conditioning.
Do not scratch
Do not, we repeat, do not scratch your scalp. Scratching can add on to irritation and inflammation leading to infection of the scalp. If your head feels itchy, go for a gentle massage with your fingertips.
Use an anti-dandruff shampoo
The importance of an anti-dandruff shampoo cannot be undermined. Get a gentle, sulphate-free shampoo with natural actives that help in cleansing your hair without drying your scalp out.
