No matter how careful you are, dandruff can affect the best of us. It can happen due to a change in season, the water you use, a change in haircare products, diet or even stress. In case you’ve been afflicted, here is your guide to
Invest in a good cleansing routine
First and foremost, double check your haircare routine. Are you using the right shampoo? If you’ve been looking for a cure for dandruff for a long time, we suggest investing in the Clear Complete Active Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. It has an effective nutrium oil complex formulation that shields the scalp and hair against hair damage and helps to get rid of greasiness, itchiness and dandruff over time.
Alter your diet
Try to change your diet a tad and include dandruff-fighting foods into it; specifically ginger, garlic and even papaya. Ginger helps improve digestion which in turn helps improve the health of your scalp. It also has anti- inflammatory properties that stimulate hair growth due its content of magnesium and potassium. Garlic on the other hand has anti-fungal properties that help fight scalp infections.
Among the fruits, papaya contains papain, which is actually an enzyme that can control the excess build-up of oil and chemicals on your scalp.
Nourish your hair with ghee
Dandruff also occurs when your sebaceous glands produce too little oil and in turn causing a dry, flaky, itchy scalp! Ghee (clarified butter) not only contains fatty acids that are good for consumption but is also loaded with beneficial vitamins and minerals that help eliminate dandruff on application.
Take about two tablespoons of ghee and melt it, squeeze in half of a lemon’s juice and massage well on the scalp. Let it stay for a good 30 minutes and wash off with a mild anti-dandruff shampoo. Be consistent with these remedies and you’ll have a flake-free scalp in no time!
