Fabulous not flaky: How to beat seasonal dandruff
Winter is coming, and we all know what that means: dandruff, dandruff and more dandruff. We start living in fear of people checking out those flakes on our shoulders, when we all know it isn’t snowing. Given the perfect combination of dry, cold air and the malassezia fungus, your scalp starts feeling dry and itchy. Before you know it, hello dandruff! But it doesn’t have to be this way. In this article, we’re going to be telling you exactly how you can beat seasonal dandruff.
Brush your hair sufficiently!
Brushing your hair helps in stimulating your scalp, which in turn keeps your blood circulation going! This way, there will be an increase in the secretion of oils on your scalp, which keeps your hair healthy.
Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day
We know, we know. It’s harder to drink water committedly when you don’t feel all that thirsty in winter. But hey, your scalp really needs it! Lack of water dehydrates the skin, and causes even more dandruff.
Direct heat is definitely not your best friend
If you have a serious case of the flakies, maybe it’s time to chuck your hairdryer and let your hair air-dry instead. Direct contact with the heat from a hairdryer can make your hair and scalp super dry. And you know what comes next after a dry scalp.
Change your diet and stress less!
Some excellent sources of nutrition for your hair and scalp are vitamin B, omega 3 and zinc. Pack spinach, bananas, fish and eggs in your diet, as it will fortify your hair and scalp with all the good stuff it’s missing out on! Also, cut down on your stress through meditation and yoga, because mild dandruff becomes severe when you’re stressed out.
Choose moisturizing anti-dandruff shampoos
A good way to take extra good care of your scalp is choosing the right hair products. The Fanola Purity Anti-Dandruff shampoo is packed with proctine olamine, and a mix of other bacteria-fighting elements that are designed to maintain your scalp health.
Another good product to use is the Eva Capilo Oxygenum Oxygenating Treatment Shampoo #07. This product is designed to eliminate dandruff, remove excess oil and reduces the risk of their reoccurrence.
