5 Ways to Get Rid of Dandruff, Fast
Dandruff is one of the worst hair problems you can have. The white flakes dusting your shoulders are unsightly, and the simple act of flicking your hair can be completely embarrassing. Most people reach for an anti-dandruff shampoo to treat the problem, but not all anti-dandruff products are equal. Some work for a while, only to have the dandruff recur worse than before. Sometimes, the formulations could be too harsh, irritating the scalp further and causing other problems like an imbalanced scalp or dry, unmanageable hair.
So how do you get rid of dandruff fast – and effectively?
1. Good hygiene is non-negotiable.
It seems like a no-brainer but keeping the scalp clean and free of dirt, sweat, environmental toxins, product residue and other impurities is vital when treating dandruff. One shampoo is often not enough, which is why we advocate double cleansing with shampoos designed for that purpose.
2. It’s a myth that you don’t need to shampoo daily.
Not shampooing daily is a common piece of haircare advice. However, context is everything. In a cold and dry climate, over-washing your hair can indeed lead to problems. In the hot and humid climate of tropical Singapore, however, we sometimes perspire even when we are standing still. Skipping just one day of hair washing can result in scalp itchiness. So the number one rule to fighting dandruff? Shampoo every day – keep your scalp clean to keep it healthy.
3. Use the right products.
Tackling an oily scalp is not like scrubbing grease off kitchen counters – you don’t want any harsh formulations that kill off both good and bad bacteria, and strip the scalp and hair of beneficial natural oils. Instead, opt for an anti-dandruff shampoo that is gentle but effective.
