Dandruff – Get rid of them naturally
Dandruff can be an embarrassing condition. You seem to have seborrhoeic dermatitis which is caused by a fungus malassezia. It is a dry, scaly condition occurring on the hairline, behind ears, in the eyebrows and the nose folds. It can cause a persistent dandruff like condition. However, it is not infectious so it does not spread from one person to another.
Sebowash shampoo can be used to treat seborrhoeaic dermatitits as it has a mild steroid fluocinolone which helps soothe inflammation that causes redness and swelling. Use the shampoo once a day and leave it after lathering for five minutes before washing it off with water. Continue using it for two weeks and once the dandruff is reduced, you can use it weekly once for maintenance. (Read: Get dandruff-free hair with these home remedies)
You can also try some home remedies which have shown to be effective in curbing dandruff. Here are some hair packs you can make using everyday ingredients.
Vinegar: It can be used to keep your scalp from becoming flaky. After washing your hair, mix two cups of apple cider vinegar with two cups of cold water and use to rinse the shampoo from your hair. Alternatively, you could apply white vinegar to the scalp and leave it on overnight with a towel, and then wash out of the hair with regular shampoo the next day.
Curd: Curd (dahi) with its acidic and conditioning properties helps fight dandruff. Ferment a small amount of curd (enough to cover your scalp) for two days. Apply it and keep it for one hour. Wash it off with a mild shampoo. Do this at least twice a week.
Natural oils: Oils like coconut, almond or olive can be used to keep the scalp moisturised and prevent dandruff. Simply warm up some oil in a bowl and apply with a scalp massage, ensuring that the entire scalp is covered. Wrap the hair and scalp in a towel and leave the oil on overnight. Then rinse the hair in the morning.
