The skin cells are constantly regenerating surface including the scalp.

However, when they regenerate rapidly, they are accumulated in the capillary area forming flakes or scales of dead skin visibly falling on the shoulders and clothing.

This condition is called dandruff which causes, often, itching and irritation and off course huge discomfort.


Why dandruff occur?

It is unknown where dandruff originates, but is known that there are various causes such as:

■ fungal infection of the scalp
■ Emotional stress or stress.
■ Cold and dry.
■ over activity of the sebaceous glands.
■ Excessive perspiration
■ Poor feeding.
■ Inadequate care.
■ Allergy and seborrheic dermatitis .
■ Excessive use of dyes.


Home Remedies for Dandruff

In market, there are different brands of anti dandruff shampoos that aim to cleanse the scalp and control the fungal infection. However, if you prefer natural remedies, you can try options such as:

Homemade Dandruff Remedy # 1: Mix one tablespoon of honey with an egg. Apply and massage in circular shape. Wash with neutral shampoo.

Note: If you want to have best result please follow these recommendations. Dandruff is something that you can not beat overnight, you need to be patient and apply remedies regularly.

Rinse thoroughly . After rinsing, it is advised to rinse again to make sure no shampoo left on head. If it does well, they will end up on your clothes as snowflakes (do not worry, this is normal, so even if you forget just wash your head once again, thats it).

Use a commercial shampoo against dandruff if desired . Select a  anti dandruff shampoo containing coal tar, salicylic acid, zinc pyrithione, sulfur or selenium sulfide (very tough job, but for best result it is recommended, at the of the article there will be some recommendation of great products, you may follow them)

Change shampoo . If you have been using a shampoo for a few months successfully and, suddenly, your dandruff reappears, what you need to do is just change it. No one knows why an incredibly good anti dandruff shampoo, suddenly stops working, but it the sad truth.

Switch anti dandruff shampoo with other normal. We recommend washing your hair with a normal shampoo every other day, one that is for your hair type: dry, oily or normal. This will protect from chemicals contains in anti dandruff shampoo.

Use conditioner with tar. If your hair begins to feel dry after using an anti dandruff shampoo for long time, choose one based on tar. Tar softens and conditions the hair.

Spraying a sunscreen. As the sun rays help to produce dandruff because they dry the scalp, it is wise to apply sunscreen especially in this and the hair before going to the beach or jump in the pool. A light spray will protect both sunlight and the terrible drying effects of chlorine. Just spray it , comb and ready. Before reapply follow the package instructions.

Consult your doctor if the dandruff persists with flaking, redness and itching, despite the measures taken, and that could be a seborrhea dermatitis, ie, an inflammation of the sebaceous glands. If you feel any problem or discomfort in any stage discuss it with your doctor, and if you have allergy problem it is highly recommended that you check the method with your doctor before you apply them.


So, at the end what we can say as final words healthy and regular living can help you to prevent a lot of things that you do not want. Prevention is better than cure, but somehow if you get the problem, you need to go under a recovery process. Remember any kind recovery process is time consuming, need a lot of care, regular and healthy living is the precondition of it.
