I get regular emails from people asking me this question: how to get rid of dandruff for black people / African American people?
Specifically people want to know what they need to do to help reduce the amount of dandruff they are having. So what I’m going to do is to give you some tips and just educate you about some different things that you can do to combat the dandruff that you are having.
So, you know or may not know that dandruff is a buildup of dead skin cells. That doesn’t mean that you’re not taking care of yourself or something is wrong with you. For some people it is very moderate, for some it is super, super extreme. So, if you are trying to shampoo your hair more often keep your hair moisturized or even massage your scalp to increase circulation. I would highly suggest that you should see a specialist in your area that could see your scalp and mentor you to understand your life style, diet, your habits, and products you use in your hair. From this analysis they will help formulate the perfect plan to help you moderate the amount of dandruff that you are experiencing.
But the best way to make sure to keep your dandruff low is to wash your hair; dandruff is a build-up of dead skin cells. So, what you want to do is probably shampoo a little bit more often with a medicated shampoo. Now, if you have already a routine, I suggest that you adjust something, experiment a little, because if not you will continue to have dandruff and not know where is coming from and they’re could be plenty of different reasons as to why you’re experiencing dandruff. You may think it’s dandruff but it could even be product build-up. So, that’s why it is very important that you shampoo your hair a little bit more frequently if you use heavy products that are hard to get out of your hair.
Another tip is that you want to drink more water frequently; when you don’t drink enough water your skin will become really dry and is more apparent to see dead skin cells everywhere. So, if you are not hydrated from the inside it’s going to be a problem that could make your dandruff worse. Also, you should make sure to moisturize from the outside by just cold washing more frequently and keeping your scalp moisturized. This will help as well because as you get rid of dead skin cells you are dry and dehydrated it’s going to be a problem for you to keep combating those different things. So those are some tips that I want you to keep in mind. Just tweaking different things as far as drinking more water, washing your hair more frequently and keeping that scalp moisturized by running some oily fingers across your scalp will help you to actually keep your scalp hydrated as well. So, just try to do some different tips that I have suggested to see what will work for you and if nothing is helping I highly suggest that you seek someone a specialist in your area that could assist you personally one-on-one with your specific situation.
