Dandruff is the term used to describe many dermatological problems which result in an itchy scalp and flakes. Although dandruff is not contagious, it can still be an embarrassing and irritating issue. Treating dandruff can often be a problem, due to the differing varieties and methods used to solve dandruff issues. Instead of looking for an overarching solution, the key to curing dandruff is finding the cause of the problem and addressing the specific situation.
For dandruff sufferers with dry skin, try a moisturizing shampoo that will soothe the scalp and put an end to flakes. To cure dandruff in people that have an oily scalp, shampoo more frequently and scrub the scalp thoroughly.
For unique dandruff conditions such as Malassezia, Seborrheic Dermatitis, Eczema or Psoriasis, medicated shampoo is often required to eliminate the problem. Each medicated shampoo is unique, and should be tried individually to guarantee success. Alternating weekly between different shampoos can also provide positive results.
By using these tips, your head will feel healthy and refreshed, with not a single flake in sight.
