Dandruff is a very common skin condition that causes the scalp to flake, and many people have it without even knowing it. But extreme dandruff can be embarrassing and hard to control. If you’re struggling with dandruff and wondering what to do next, this information should help guide you in the right direction.

Potential Causes of Dandruff

There are a variety of reasons that you might have dandruff. Consider each reason and identify which are possible given your lifestyle and health habits. Dry skin is the number one cause of dandruff, especially in the winter when dry hot air is pushed into homes and businesses to avoid the chill. Neglecting to shampoo and brush your hair on a daily basis is another possibility, since both of those processes help to release dead skin cells and oil buildups. Certain skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis also have the potential to impact the scalp and lead to frustrating dandruff in the same manner.

Home Remedies

There are quite a few home remedies out there that have been used with success in the past to battle dandruff. Tea tree essential oil, for instance, can be added to shampoo or conditioner in order to heal the scalp and prevent dandruff from forming. Baking soda is also a popular choice since it can reduce levels of the overactive fungi that cause dandruff. Apple cider vinegar, meanwhile, can change the pH of your scalp to prevent the growth of dandruff-supporting yeast. All you need to do is mix a bit with water and spray onto your head and let sit for 15 minutes, twice per week.

Professional Treatments

If your dandruff is severe, you should seek professional help. There are a number of medicated shampoos and products that act as potent antifungals, you just need help determining the best product for your exact situation. Ask a professional for expert guidance and bid your dandruff farewell.
