Culver City, CA – Does dandruff leave you wiping away white flakes all day long?
You don’t have to live with this condition any longer.
Not only does dandruff make you appear as though you just went head to head with a powdered donut, it’s downright embarrassing – especially when you find yourself face-to-face with someone you admire, such as a new love interest.
To help you minimize your dandruff problem, here are four viable solutions you should try right now.
What Causes Dandruff?
Before we get to the various solutions, let’s discuss what causes the pesky white flakes to begin with.
Most cases of dandruff are caused by dry or inflamed skin conditions, such as psoriasis or seborrhea.
Other factors include genetics (yes, you could simply be born with it) and extreme hot and cold climates.
But let’s get one thing straight. Just because you have dandruff does not mean that you exhibit poor grooming habits. Let’s put that myth to rest.
Now that you know what causes this annoying condition, how on earth do you get rid of it?
Minimize Dandruff for Good
1. Use an Anti-Dandruff Shampoo: You can find many shampoos designed to help with dandruff at your local grocery store or pharmacy.
If you don’t like the clinical smell, feel free to go with a gentle, non-drying shampoo. Shampoo that is too harsh on your scalp or that will dry out your skin will only make your dandruff worse.
You can also try a tar shampoo if the above selections don’t work.
As to how often you should use the shampoo, shoot for every day or every other day until there are no more flakes. When that happens, you can then switch to using the specialty shampoo twice a week for best effect.
2. Supplement Your Diet: Getting rid of dandruff isn’t all about slathering shampoo on your scalp.
You can also treat dandruff from the inside.
Start with ingesting 500 mg of primrose oil, an essential fatty acid called GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), twice a day for six to eight weeks.
It’s difficult to get this compound in your average diet, yet it is essential for growing healthy skin and hair cells.
After six to eight weeks, when you notice your dandruff problem diminishing, cut the dose in half.
3. Eat Clean: Eating a bunch of junk can exacerbate your dandruff problem.
That doesn’t mean you have to eat like a rabbit, but you can help to reduce flaking by adding freshly ground flaxseed to your diet.
You can also contribute to healthy skin and hair by adding Omega-3 fatty acids in the form of sardines and wild Alaskan salmon, or by taking fish oil capsules.
How to Stop Beard Dandruff
Dandruff doesn’t only build on the top of your head. When you’ve taken a long time to grow your beard only to find that your skin itches and those hairs act as a net for dandruff flakes, drastic action needs to be taken.
While much of the above advice can help, including the diet and supplement changes, you can contribute to keeping your beard dandruff-free by choosing a:
4. USDA Certified Beard Oil
Instead of coating your beard with anti-dandruff or non-drying shampoo, go for an oil that is specially formulated for your beard.
The oil should be certified by the USDA as safe for use on your beard and regularly used to keep flaky dandruff at bay.
For best results, use a beard oil that is proven to moisturize the hair and skin underneath, like Mystic Man that was featured on KTLA news in Los Angeles. Not only will you stop dandruff in its tracks, but you’ll have a clean, soft beard that feels hydrated and healthy all the day through.
