You are not alone don’t worry!
Dandruff is basically a result of dry scalp, oily skin, excessive product build -up and overgrowth of yeast-like fungus, Malassezia Globosa, which can cause itching and flaking of the scalp. Dandruff can become more problematic in winter due to a variety of factors:
1. Air temperature-
The drying powers of cold winter air and overheated indoor spaces can agitate moisture balances in the skin.
2. Seasonal stress-
A few people experience more physiological and mental weakness during the colder time of the year, which can trigger scalp conditions.
3. Winter allergies -
As exposure to indoor allergens like dust, mites, and mold increases, winter allergies can kick in and activate the growth of the dandruff causing germ on the scalp.
4. Imbalances in the body -
Changes in diet and seasonal hormonal variation may also play a role.
It can be embarrassing at times, but it’s not difficult to treat. The best way to get rid of dandruff is to use an anti-dandruff shampoo that’s been proven to work against flakes, itchiness, redness, and a dry scalp. To do that, you’ve got to use the right hair care product to get rid of dandruff this winter like Head & Shoulders’ anti-dandruff shampoos.
It works to tackle the root cause of dandruff – the microbe Malassezia Globosa which is present on everyone’s scalp. By tackling the source of the issue, it breaks the cycle of dandruff irritation rather than just treating the symptoms like other shampoos. Once you’ve chosen the right anti-dandruff shampoo, you have to ensure you use it properly.
Here's a couple of tips to ensure your shampoo regime works as well as possible:
1. Use it each time you wash your hair –
Use your Head & Shoulders shampoo consistently to keep dandruff under control.
2. Choose the right conditioner –
Many ordinary cosmetic conditioners can clean out the active ingredient in your scalp. Use Head & Shoulders anti-dandruff shampoo and conditioner, both of which have been designed to work hand-in-hand so the zinc pyrithione keeps working to help get rid of dandruff.
Home remedies to cure dandruff at home:
1. Aloe Vera:
Aloe Vera decreases skin disturbance and has a saturating impact. It diminishes flakiness and irritation to give relief from dandruff. It is antibacterial and antifungal, which further shields your scalp from dandruff. Apply aloe vera gel on your scalp and leave for about thirty minutes. Later, wash your hair with a Head & Shoulder Supreme shampoo.
Antifungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of neem help to prevent and treat dandruff. Neem oil can be applied to the scalp and leave it for a few hours to prevent dandruff or you can make a hair mask out of neem. For the hair mask, grind neem leaves into a paste, leave this paste on scalp for 15 to 20 minutes, and then use a mild anti-dandruff shampoo of your choice to rinse it off. You can also boil few neem leaves in water and use them to rinse your hair.
Lemon juice is proven to get rid of dandruff naturally. The citric acid present in lemon juice helps fight dandruff from the roots, as it adjusts the pH of the scalp. For best results mix aloe vera and lemon and rub onto your scalp. Leave it for 30 minutes, and then use a mild anti-dandruff shampoo to rinse your hair.
4. Argan Oil:
While oiling your hair as a solution for dandruff is really a myth, here are several benefits you can gain from argan when used in controlled quantities and in the right way. Argan oil, of Moroccan origins, nourishes and rejuvenates your hair follicles from its roots. The scalp also gets rejuvenated and nourished so that it becomes possible for your scalp to fight dandruff better. This hydration of your scalp skin by argan oil and aloe vera can work wonders in getting rid of dryness and therefore winter dandruff. Use Head & Shoulders Supreme shampoo and conditioner at least 2-3 times a week and see the difference in just one wash.
With the above tips, be prepared to get rid of dandruff this winter and flaunt gorgeous hair that can make you stand apart from the rest. No matter what, we’ve always got your scalp!
