How To Fight Severe Dandruff

Read on to find out how to get rid of severe dandruff the right way

If you find that no matter how often you shampoo your hair you still have those annoying white flakes in your scalp, you probably have a case of severe dandruff. The good news is that just a few minor changes to your routine should take care of your problem instantly. For one, you may be using a shampoo or conditioner that is drying out your scalp and causing it to produce more oil, which in turn leads to severe dandruff. Most of the over-the-counter shampoos and conditioners at the store contain harsh ingredients and chemicals that strip your scalp of essential oils. Check out the 8 Best Dandruff Shampoos to see which products you should be using.

Another cause of severe dandruff is product buildup in your hair. When you use too many different styling products on a daily basis, they start to form layers on your scalp, which contributes to increased oiliness. Aside from decreasing the amount of product that you use, you may want to consider avoiding the scalp area if you are looking to get rid of severe dandruff and concentrate your application of the product on the lower half of your hair, towards the tips. Skip the leave-in conditioner and just spritz some finishing spray or hairspray on your hair to complete your look. For a list of hairsprays to watch out for, read 12 Lowest Rated Hairsprays.
