Dandruff–everyone hates it! It is thus very important to prevent, or control dandruff, which may be due to hormonal changes, infrequent shampooing, use of greasy products, stress, anxiety, dry winter days, or a condition called psoriasis.

In all the above cases, dandruff may be prevented or cured. Use a shampoo that suits your condition. If the shampoo you initially bought does not make you happy, shop for another one. Change shampoo if you still do not find the right one for you. There are two common brands that work, Selsun Blue and Head and Shoulders. Use them alternately. Try coming up with a regular cycle, so that your scalp will not become habitual to only one active ingredient in the shampoo in use.

If you have a severe case of dandruff, seek professional help. Do not take advice and treatments from one who is not a professional.

Effects of washing hair

Posted on: December 4th, 2014

Washing one’s hair indeed leads to one feeling fresh and clean. Though, it is rarely the case that people are aware of the fact that too much washing of hair can damage one’s hair. How is this even possible? Over washing removes the natural oil produced by your scalp. This oil is essential in maintaining your hair healthy and if this is immediately removed, your hair will be restricted from absorbing its nutrients thus resulting to damages. This doesn’t end there. This damage can worsen if still, one chooses to over wash. The hair will then produce the so-called “over-produce oils” which cause that greasy, oily hair. With this, it is important to know that not all procedures that we regularly do to our hair contribute to its good health. Any procedure, no matter how simple it may be, as simple as washing one’s hair, could lead to disturbing damages that one may not instantly realize.
