Is there an effective way to prevent dandruff? One frustrating thing I encountered now that I am older is hair problems, more particularly scalp issues. I blame it on the change of weather, and probably stronger shampoo concentration, but whichever the reason, dandruff is a problem so common that it can affect anyone. It is usually encountered from young adulthood until middle age. People who have oily hair and scalp are prone to dandruff. Since men have larger oil producing glands in their scalp, they are more likely to have dandruff than females. A poor diet that is lacking in zinc, vitamin B or certain kinds of fats also contribute to having dandruff. The worst case of dandruff usually occurs during cold months while the condition improves during warm months.
Mild cases can easily be treated with regular anti-dandruff shampoos while the more stubborn cases need to be treated with medicated shampoos. On top of regular cleansing with your anti-dandruff shampoo, you may reduce your risk of developing dandruff through the following regimen:
Manage your stress.
Observe proper hygiene.
Maintain a healthy diet.
Let your natural beauty shine.
Treatment for skin ailments is something that we shouldn’t take for granted. It doesn’t stop at taking the prescribed medication by our dermatologist we also have to look at our habits and take steps to improve it for a healthy skin, healthy body and healthy life.
