Dandruff can be caused by a number of different factors. You may suffer from flakes due to sleeping problems. Some people, on the other hand, always have dandruff, regardless of their health and sleeping patterns. Dandruff can be treated using a few different techniques.
If you notice dandruff appearing after a few sleepless nights, don’t panic. ‘This type of dandruff can be treated fairly easily. If you aren’t suffering from dandruff on a regular basis, this means that your dandruff can be treated easily as you don’t find flakes in your hair every day.’
For people who regularly have a flaky scalp resulting in dandruff, solving this issue can be much more long-winded and drawn out, unfortunately. ‘Sometimes its difficult to banish your dandruff completely, but it’s not impossible. It may take a while, but you need to be patient and results will follow. There are a couple of very effective products you can try which you apply in the evening, and then rinse out the next morning with shampoo.’
If you have tried the above and your dandruff really isn’t budging, speak to your dermatologist. ‘Your dandruff may be linked to other factors such as stress-related problems, which can reek havoc on the scalp area. If you’ve tried anti-dandruff products and are still suffering from a flaky scalp, the best option is to speak to a skin specialist who will be able to identify the cause of your stubborn problem.’
Our tip: Take a closer look at your dandruff. Does it appear greasy or dry, as the two are treated differently. At your salon, ask your stylist to have a look and advise you on the best way to get rid of your dandruff.
