Winter is upon us and with it comes dreaded dandruff. Dandruff is a skin condition that causes an itchy & flaking scalp. Severe cases are known as Seborrheic Dermatitis.
Dandruff can sometimes be embarrassing but don’t fret! Here are some ways you can help to control it:
When shampooing your hair, make sure you use cool water. Hot water can dry out your scalp & skin even more.
Apply your shampoo and conditioner evenly from mid-strand to the ends of your hair. Make sure you are not applying to much product to just one area of the scalp.
Also, washing your hair too often can strip the scalp of its natural oils that help to keep it moisturized.
Last but certainly not least, using professional shampoos and conditioners will also help to control dandruff. Drug store and off the shelf shampoo and conditioners contain a high amount of wax and alcohol that concentrate the supply of their product in the bottle, which can clog the pores on the scalp.
