But fret not because we bring you some really cool tips and products that will make your hair dandruff free.
Change your brush/comb
Yes, you heard it right. A brush or a comb plays a vital role in causing major hair related problems. Hair is the most delicate part of our body. Rough brushing causes blisters on scalp and leads to scalp infection. Basic hygiene is very important in hair care.
Soak your brush in hot water and add some antiseptic lotion. This process will clean the dust and kill all the chances of infection. Also, do not share your hair equipment with anyone.
Limited use of styling gels/petroleum jelly
Spare your hair from greasy gels or lotions as they are really harmful. They contain substance that makes a water and air proof barrier on scalp. In hot weather, our scalp sweats and as the air cannot enter, the greasiness remains stuck to it. As a result scalp gets infected and causes honeycomb dandruff.
Wash your hair regularly
Regular use of shampoo is necessary to clean all the dirt from skin. Working women are more prone to dandruff, due to the weather conditions outside. For daily use, buy a shampoo that is gentle on scalp and has soya protein and almond oil. Soya protein works on the scalp, nourishes and cleans it and almond, again is good for flaky dandruff problems.
Use Products with rosemary essence
If despite regular shampooing, dandruff persists, then strong dandruff needs something stronger. Rosemary is known to combat serious dandruff problems. Rosemary stimulates follicles and deters graying of hair and dryness that causes dandruff.
Use this three way process that would solve the eternal problem of dandruff.
Dandruff control shampoo
Wash your hair with a shampoo with rosemary oil. Check the label behind for the ingredients. There are various hair care products in the market to choose from. A shampoo with rosemary oil and menthol is very effective on dandruff prone scalp.

Mix small proportion of rosemary oil in base oil and gently massage with fingers. Wrap a hot wet towel and leave for few minutes and shampoo afterwards.
