Tips for coping with dandruff

Dandruff is often mistaken for a cosmetic issue. But dandruff is often caused by a yeast-like fungus. Here are some useful tips for coping with dandruff and helping to prevent it from getting worse.

Avoid Stress

While it's hard to rid yourself of all stress, learning how to deal with it could help. Both stress, and sleep deprivation (which can often be a side-effect of stress), can cause dandruff flare-ups.

Eat a Balanced Diet

We all know we should be eating a balanced diet that is packed full of fresh fruit and veg, but many of us could improve our intake of minerals and vitamins. Eating such foods can also help maintain your hair and scalp.

Use a Medicated Shampoo

Anti-dandruff shampoos with active ingredients such as ketoconazole can help to fight malassezia, a fungus that causes dandruff.

Regular Hair Washing

It’s important to wash your hair regularly to help remove the oils that form on your scalp from everyday life. A medicated dandruff treatment shampoo such as Nizoral can help get to the root of the problem for effective relief from the symptoms and causes of dandruff.

Clean Hairbrushes and Styling Tools

A build-up of hair, dead skin cells and styling product residue can form on our hairbrushes and styling tools. Regularly clean them to prevent this from happening.

Use Styling Products in Moderation

Overuse of styling products such as gels or hair sprays can cause a build-up of oil on your scalp and hair. Try to limit how often you use styling products and ensure they are washed out thoroughly.
