Dryness and dandruff have you down? It’s not uncommon to develop a lot of hair dryness and dandruff, especially when the seasons transition. If this is something you struggle with regularly, or have at all, you’ve probably felt some frustrating with trying to hide it. The problem with just focusing on hiding this hair concern is you’re not actually TREATING it. Treating the problems are much more effective than just trying to cover it up. If you feel like you’ve tried everything, you’re in the right place because we’ve discovered some new tips to treating hair dryness and dandruff to give a try.
Brush In The Shower
Before we go into too much detail here, when we say brush it’s really best to use a wide toothed comb or a shower safe brush to be sure that your hair strands are well protected during this process. Experts suggest that a lot of hair dryness and dandruff comes from product not being distributed throughout the hair thoroughly during showering and can leave your scalp with a lot of buildup. So, what’s a person to do? Focus on thoroughly rinsing your hair, scalp and getting all that product through your hair strands. Really be sure that you’re massaging the scalp to break up any build up on the scalp and use a brush/comb to get the product through your hair when applying to your hair and rinsing.
Don’t Go To Bed With Wet Hair
As easy and convenient as it is to shower before bed and allow your hair to air dry, it’s been said that doing so can result in hair dryness/dandruff or worsening the case. You can still shower before bed, but you’ll want to make it a habit of drying your hair before resting your head for the evening. The reason it’s going to bed with wet hair can hurt your case with dandruff is because the wetness in your hair has been found to *sometimes* result in fungus, but because of the skin in that area of the body the fungus appears in the form of dandruff.
Use Specific Shampoo
This may seem obvious, but a lot of people are afraid to purchase and use dandruff formulated shampoo products. There’s no shame in it, just for the record! These types of shampoo products are formulated to nourish very dry hair and scalp issues, like hair dryness and dandruff. Because of their special formulation they’re much more effective in treating these types of hair concerns than your typical shampoo products. The key is to allow the shampoo product to soak in your hair/scalp for a few minutes before rinsing it out. This helps to get all the great ingredients and nourishment into the hair and scalp, so don’t be in a rush to rinse when using these product. BUT, be sure that you’re thoroughly rinsing when you do rinse (see above). Even though they’re formulated to work with your particular hair concern doesn’t mean you want that buildup on your scalp.
