Home remedies for dandruff in hair. Please suggest

Factors that may augment a dandruff condition

  • Infrequent shampooing of hair, inadequate rinsing and excessive use of a hot hair dryer (which also causes contact dermatitis), aggravates dandruff. You could prevent dandruff by shampooing regularly with a mild shampoo. Massage your scalp gently to loosen flakes and rinse the hair and scalp thoroughly.
  • Excessive use of hairsprays and gels and improper use of hair coloring products can cause dandruff. Tight fitting hats and scarves should be avoided.
  • A combination of cold weather, low humidity and dry indoor heat could explain persistent dandruff.
  • Poor diet, food allergies, hormonal imbalances, and infections can all lead to dandruff.
