Definition of Dandruff:

Our entire body surface constantly sheds dead skin cells. The shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp at an excessive fast rate is known as Dandruff.

Dandruff is seasonal being most severe during the winter and placid during the summer. The most common Symptom of Dandruff is an itchy scalp. The Dandruff scales are usually small white patches on the surface of the scalp. Dandruff can cause heavy damage to the hair and cause hair fall. Not only it is visible in the hair, but filthily falls into your clothing too. Both head lice treatment and Dandruff treatment should be done immediately.

Causes of Dandruff:

The following factors are associated with the cause of Dandruff:
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Excessive Perspiring
  • Allergy
  • Poor hygiene
  • Insufficient nutrition and inadequate health conditions
  • Stress, anxiety and tension
  • Improper sleep
  • Genetically inherited
  • Prolific use of hair-coloring products or use of electric hair curlers, gel, mousse
  • Shampooing infrequently and scarce rinsing of hair
  • Cold weather and dry environment
  • Firm fitting hats and scarves
  • Too much heat
Dandruff Treatment:

Since dandruff is a natural process, it cannot be entirely eradicated, but you can adopt the following measures to control dandruff.
  • In case of mild dandruff, it may be controlled by regularly shampooing the scalp with a mild shampoo, suitable for regular use. Shampooing with a strong shampoo can cause your scalp to dry even more and which can in turn result in making the dandruff condition worse. The choice of a proper shampoo is the most significant task and you can undertake the trial and error process to see which shampoo suits your hair the best. You can also opt for anti-dandruff shampoos available easily. While shampooing, remember to wash your scalp twice. The first wash will clean the dandruff present in your hair and the second was will medicate the scalp and prevent scaling. After using an anti-dandruff shampoo, which can contain harmful chemicals that tend to leave your scalp dry, always make sure to use a conditioning shampoo. Also you must remember to condition your hair with a deep conditioner to nourish the scalp and prevent it from becoming dry.

  • Regular shampooing may not always help. Rather the wrong selection of shampoo can have adverse effect on your scalp resulting in more scaling. In such cases you can try some natural treatment, which although may not give you immediate results, but can prove beneficial in the long run. Moreover, unlike most chemical based anti-dandruff shampoos, they do not have the harsh effect on your scalp.

    1. Mix some camphor in coconut oil. Application of this oil daily on your scalp properly with the fingertips working at the hair roots in the scalp can show remarkable results.
    2. Apply lemon juice mixed with sugar on the scalp. Then expose the hair to the sun's heat for five to six hours and let the juice dry. When this is done, wash the hair with a mild shampoo. Although this may sound difficult but this can solve the dandruff problem to a great extent.
    3. Prepare a mixture of lemon juice in coconut oil. Apply this mixture on the hair and massage it deep into the scalp. Continue this regularly for a few days. It will help reduce the dandruff and impart a shine to your hair.
  • If neither frequent shampooing nor the natural remedies is able to reduce dandruff, consult a dermatologist.
Proper hygienic conditions, sufficient food intake, and proper sleep can help you control dandruff, therefore along with the above-mentioned measure, make sure you concentrate on these aspects too.
