The chances of dandruff eruptions increase as the season edges closer to winters. So, we will tell you how to reduce the chances of seasonal dandruff occurring.
Dandruff is something that most people go through, regardless of the age, sex or gender. Along with it looking really disgusting, it signifies a major scalp problem. Now, mind you, it has very little to do with hygiene.
Even the most stringently hygienic people can get dandruff. In fact, it is said that the more you wash your hair, the worse it gets if you have dandruff. Overwashing the hair can strip the scalp and hair off their natural oils, which makes it even more prone to problems like dandruff.
So, if more hair washing is not the answer, then what is? Thankfully, there are some remedies you can try out at home. These are all safe and not that time-consuming, but it is still suggested that you go in for patch tests in case you are trying out something new.
Here are ways for you to reduce the seasonal dandruff problem. Try them out!
1. Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is one of the best remedies for seasonal dandruff. Apply diluted ACV mixed with water all over your scalp and wash it off with a shampoo like you usually would.
2. Lemon: Lemon naturally cleanses the scalp and gets rid of excessive oils and gunk from the scalp. Apply lemon juice all over your scalp, and leave it on for half an hour. Be sure to not gout in the sun after you do this, as lemon could bleach your hair. Wash your hair normally after this.
3. Baking Soda: Make a paste out of baking soda and water and use this to shampoo your hair. This will remove excessive oil from the scalp and also help get rid of seasonal dandruff that is caused by oily scalp during the winter months.
4. Aloe Vera: Aloe vera gel can help soothe an itchy scalp, and dandruff often leads to itchy scalp. Aloe vera can help moisturise the scalp, and get rid of the dandruff that is a characteristic of dry scalp.
5. Tea Tree Oil: Mix a few drops of tea tree oil in any shampoo to turn it into a really safe-to-use seasonal dandruff treatment. This would be gentler than the other store-bought dandruff remedies.
6. Salt: Mix a bit of salt into some shampoo to make your very own DIY dandruff scrub. The abrasive texture of the salt helps get rid of the flakes and that is how easy it is to reduce seasonal dandruff at home.
