What Causes Dandruff and the Ways to Diminish It

Many people, male or female, from all over the world complain about dandruff. But how is dandruff caused? Dandruff can be a result of dry skin condition, sensitivity to any new hair product, or any other reason. It is very important to treat dandruff effectively for having health locks. The Anti-dandruff shampoo or any kind of other remedy can be really very helpful to get rid of dandruff from the scalp.  

Dandruff is caused due to sudden dryness in the scalp. The most effective homemade remedy for treating dry scalp is a nice warm oil massage. Massage your scalp with lukewarm oil for at least 30 minutes so that the skin can absorb the oil in the roots of the hair. Leave the oil in your hair for about one to two hours and relax. Then wash your hair with a mild anti-dandruff shampoo and let it air dry. Do the oiling, massage, and wash by an anti-dandruff shampoo at least twice a week, and you will definitely see positive results in just one month.

Now, a big question. Which oil needs to be used for massaging the scalp? You can use oils like virgin coconut oil, pure sweet almond oil, castor oil, or even cold-pressed olive oil. All these oils are known to provide moisture and strength to the hair’s roots and prevent dandruff. Make sure you use chemical-free oils for your scalp and wash the hair with a mild anti-dandruff shampoo. You can also add essential oils such as tea tree oil, lavender or lemongrass, or rosemary to get more effective results of the massages before washing your hair with anti-dandruff shampoo. Beware of the adulterated oils in the market that might contain mineral oil in huge quantities, and the other primary oil in very less percent.

Now let us talk about choosing the right anti-dandruff shampoo. It is necessary to examine the ingredients of the anti-dandruff shampoo that you wish to purchase. It may be the case that the anti-dandruff shampoo that was a blessing for your friend’s hair might just be the opposite for your hair. Different anti-dandruff shampoos have different purposes. Many of the anti-dandruff shampoos come with different kinds of natural ingredients and good chemicals.

Some contain amla extracts to help strengthen the roots, while some of the anti-dandruff shampoo claim to have aloe vera for providing moisture to the roots and prevent dandruff. Look into the composition list of anti-dandruff shampoo to know which one will be the most suitable for your scalp. Anti-dandruff shampoo can easily be purchased at a departmental store or supermarket, or you can get anti-dandruff shampoo online. Look out for harmful chemicals and avoid the shampoos that have them in a large percentage.

Another tip for preventing dandruff. Use cold water for washing your hair with anti-dandruff shampoo. Warm or hot water has the tendency to cause dryness in the hair. Dryness is a main reason for people having dandruff in the first place. Keep your scalp clean to avoid any dandruff, and drink lots of water daily, at least 3 liters, to keep the body well hydrated. An overall hydrated body also has a hydrated and moisturized scalp, which keeps dandruff at bay.
