What is the best treatment for hair dandruff?
Dandruff occurs extensively when tiny pieces of dry skin start flaking off a person’s scalp. People with dark hair or wearing dark colors can notice the flakes in the hair, scalp or on the shoulders. Dandruff also makes the scalp itch. Treating severe dandruff is possible through the use of scalp treatments and dandruff shampoo. For best results: • Stick to the instructions mentioned on the dandruff shampoo package. Different shampoos for dandruff contain various active ingredients for reducing the symptoms. To get the fastest results, maintain the instructions found on the shampoo bottle. For instance, there are some dandruff shampoos that require you to work up a lather in your hair and scalp and leave it in for almost 5 minutes before rinsing it off. Some shampoos should not be left in on the scalp though, so be careful. • Asians should shampoo daily and wash their hair with dandruff solutions twice in one week. If this does not bring relief to your condition, alternate between different dandruff shampoos with other kinds of active ingredients. • Exercise caution when using a dandruff shampoo with the only active ingredients listed as coal tar. Tar shampoo is capable of discoloring white, grey, or blonde hair really fast. So, people with lighter hair should try a different kind of anti-dandruff shampoo. Tar shampoo also increases sensitivity to sunlight. If you use this shampoo, protect the scalp from the sun by donning a hat when venturing outdoors. Also, try to look for shade whenever you can.
