Rid of Dandruff: How to Identify and Properly Treat Dandruff
What is Dandruff
Dandruff is dry skin particles that are in the scalp resulting in a white flake-like substance on the head, shoulders and neck.
Dandruff may be caused by a condition known as eczema which is a skin condition that causes itching.
It can also be hormone related, excess oily scalp, or even the weather considering the skin tends to become drier during the winter months.
What are the symptoms of Dandruff?
Dandruff may appear as tiny, white flakes of dead skin in your scalp.
It can be accompanied by itching or it just may simply exist.
How is it treated?
Dandruff can be treated at home by using an antidandruff shampoo.
There are many antidandruff shampoo products available containing different chemicals.
If the antidandruff shampoo you are using seems to do the trick but then over time comes back, it is time to entertain the idea of using a different antidandruff shampoo until you find the one that works best for you.
What is the proper way to apply antidandruff shampoo?
When washing your hair, rinse with water first, then lather in the shampoo.
Rinse. Lather again, getting it deep down into your scalp by massaging it in.
Allow the shampoo 5 minutes to set on the hair and rinse well.
This will remove the dead skin cells you’ve acquired from lathering and rubbing the shampoo into your scalp.
