As the temperature heats up there is one problem that many people worry about and that is dehydration. High temperatures cause your body to sweat and if you sweat enough, it can sap the moisture from your skin and scalp.
Dandruff, a condition in which dead skin flakes from ones’ scalp, can become even more severe if an individual does not hydrate properly. Thankfully, it is a condition that can be managed with the right care.
One to start fighting dandruff is to by the proper shampoo or hair product. Shampoos like Head and Shoulders and T-Gel are among the hundreds of choices that consumers have to choose from. Most of these shampoos contain zinc, which an essential mineral in keeping flaking of the scalp to a minimum.
Something as simple as cleaning your hair brushes and combs regularly is enough to keep that pesky dandruff away. The first thing you want to do is get all your brushes then wash the brushes with dish soap after you remove any hair, and then let them sit in a mixture of warm water and white vinegar for about 30 minutes. It is best practice to do this every two to three weeks to ensure there is no build-up.
Another quick fix that you can pick up at your local super market is vitamins. Eating food containing vitamins A, B and C can help make sure you have a healthy flake-free scalp. These vitamins are vital for cell growth and to maintain a healthy immune system, which also helps combat dandruff.
There are home-made remedies on the web that promise to reduce your dandruff and some of them actually work. Letting coconut oil sit in your hair for about an hour is a popular choice among people and it smells awesome. Another great suggestion is to massage a lime juice/water mix onto your scalp and rinse it using the similar mixture of ingredients. Much more can be found online but its always best to visit a salon specialists.
