We are constantly shedding dead skin cells from all over our bodies, which is a natural way for our skin to rejuvenate itself. Dandruff results from the same shedding of skin cells, but this can end up being a problem when our scalp sheds too quickly, in combination with a yeast like fungus known as malassezia, which feeds on the fatty oils on our head. Here are some of the best natural ways to get effective dandruff relief, and they are simple and easy to follow. One step is to shampoo often, perhaps every other day or two. You do not want to over shampoo your hair as this can dry out the scalp, causing it to produce more sebum as a result. You will also want to consider switching over to an anti dandruff shampoo, which will help fight dandruff more effectively. Check out

When shampooing your hair, be sure to lather twice. The first wash gets rid of the loose flakes and buildup on your scalp, while the second wash allows the shampoo to better penetrate your skin and start working underneath. You can also try using a tar shampoo, as tar decreases cell turnover effectively. When using a tar shampoo, be sure to follow up with lemon juice or a conditioner afterwards in order to rinse out the strong scent of the tar. Read
