In this article, some tips for dandruff reduction and thereby removal will be shared, that will help you in reducing dandruff, controlling hair fall as well as improving the texture of the hair.
Read on to see how you can do that:
Tip 1: Use anti-dandruff products
Depending on how severe your dandruff is, using anti-dandruff products is the best remedy for dandruff. Anti-dandruff products have active elements that help fight dandruff from its root. The best way to use anti-dandruff products is to set a routine for them and follow it religiously. But what should be that routine? Find out in the next tip.
Tip 2: Follow a hair wash routine
Most people wash their hair with shampoo once a week and are done with it. Habits like these not only aggravate dandruff or other hair issues but also can be the root cause of those issues in the first place.
Experts suggest starting with a simple pre-wash routine like oiling your hair or applying lotions and then gradually developing a post-wash, post-styling, and middle of the weekly routine. The most important thing to remember is to sustain these routines for 3 or 6 or even up to 12 months. That is what is going to help you with recurring dandruff.
Tip 3: Having a clean scalp
If you stay in a humid climate or dusty weather, or you have work conditions that leave your hair dirty, chances are you will develop yeast infection on your scalp. Infections like these take time to subside and can trigger a crazy amount of dandruff!
A remedy for this is to use antibacterial and antifungal products like apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, etc. Users can also use products that have such these or these types of activities.
Tip 4: Reduce the effects of hormones and stress
Women who have PCOS or are going through menopause might see aggravated dandruff. Even diabetes patients show signs of aggravated dandruff. While these conditions take a long time to subside, you can in the short term reduce the stress they put your body through.
Practicing meditation, a proper exercise routine, and a strict diet can help reduce its effects.
Tip 5: Massage your scalp
If your hair and scalp are dry, the possible reason is that there is not enough oil production in your scalp. This tip is especially for dry to very dry hair types that experience an itchy scalp.
Messaging your head with coconut oil (or any oil of your choice) for at least 5 to 10 minutes is going to improve the blood circulation to the follicles. This will improve the oil production in your scalp and help reduce dandruff.
Tip 6 : Practise Inversions
Practising inversions has similar effects to oil massaging your scalp. It will help improve blood circulation. But the thing is these inversions may not be intense yogic postures like headstands, even simple inversions like bending forward can get the job done.
Even brushing your hair bending forwards towards the gravity or washing the hair in a similar fashion can help a lot. This is not “THE” remedy but when the problem is severe even small things count.
Dandruff can also be genetic. And hence apart from these tips, if there are remedies that may have suited your parents and grandparents, you should look for them too.
