How to get rid of dandruff?

By  |  2 Comments

Dandruff is the result of excessive skin-shedding from the scalp. Irritating, I know and the sooner you get rid of it, the better. These tips will show you how:

  • If you have a mild case of dandruff, then over-the-counter anti-dandruff products can help.
  • When you shampoo, massage the scalp vigorously so that you can loosen the flakes and wash them off.
  • You need to rinse your hair thoroughly after you shampoo, as shampoo build up can also trigger skin problems and make existing ones worse.
  • Make it a point to keep your hair clean. Shampoo on a daily basis. Keep that lather on for a few minutes before you rinse it off. Once the dandruff disappears, you might want to control it by using medicated shampoo once a week. Take care not to use medicated shampoos everyday as they are quite strong.
  • Avoid blow-drying your hair. Instead let it dry naturally.
  • If you brush your hair, do it with a natural bristle brush that’s medium-stiff.

Here’s to your healthy hair!

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I write to collect smiles and donate to charities. I share stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
