Question Dandruff - July 9th 2011, 04:54 AM

So for some reason I just started getting dandruff. It't pretty noticeable where I part my hair. (In fact, my mom pointed it out to me yesterday. Then it just started annoying me because it's like the main thing I focus on when I look in the mirror now. xD Oh well, I'd rather her inform me about it then not say anything at all )
Anyone know any way to get rid of it?

You said that you just started getting dandruff, have you changed any of your hair products? I heard that some hair products can irritate your scalp which then can lead to dandruff.

Anyways!, I researched a bit. A lot of people recommended using the Head and Shoulder shampoo and conditioner. My younger sister gets dandruff and she uses Head and Shoulders, and now she doesn't really have any. Also, if you decide not to go with Head and Shoulders, there are many other products and home remedies that you can get to help with it; it's just a matter of searching.

Nope, not recently. I did accidently use the wrong conditioner with my shampoo on Monday though (I have to use a special shampoo that restores protein in your hair every 3 days). Maybe that could be it?

I'll have to check that Head and Shoulder's shampoo out if this continues. I'll also try finding home remedies though.

Thank you. =)

Head and Shoulders is an AWESOME product that keeps dandruff away. Anytime that anyone in my family gets it, they use Head and Shoulders and it clears up quickly.

Head and Shoulders is fantastic, but there are other, cheaper anti-dandruff shampoos too which can be used if money is an issue. Most drug stores have their own brands of shampoos and do different styles like: for greasy hair, normal hair, long hair etc.

It's nothing to worry about, most people get dandruff at some point in their lives <3

Head and Shoulders is great, I know many people who use it.
I don't know how often you shower, but I've had dandruff as well, and this helped me. I scrub my scalp in the shower with my fingertips to try to get it all loose, then comb my hair meticulously when I get out. As long as it doesn't hurt that should be okay to try. I also find that it's less noticeable, if loose, when my hair is down. If I brush it into an updo, it's more noticeable.
Good luck! I'm sure it will fade quickly.

I didn't really have dandruff until I started using Head & Shoulders Sometimes if you aren't rinsing your hair completely it can cause dandruff, maybe try rinsing it more vigorously than usual?

This may seem a bit silly, but I'd recommend popping in to see a dermatologist. People often mistake conditions like dry scalp or eczema for dandruff, and using medicated shampoos for dandruff can irritate your scalp if you don't have actual dandruff. I tried around five different kinds of medicated shampoos for dandruff before I realized that I just had a dry scalp. The products I've found to help the most are the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special products. I use the shampoo most times I wash my hair and the scalp treatment every time I wash my hair and I've found that not only do I not have flakes, but my hair also gets oily much slower than it used to. I used to have to wash my hair every day, and since finding these products I wash maybe once every 3 days.

"Love me for me, accept the fact I'm true, live like I want, fufill my dreams,
Dream of me, run out free, capture your words and never let them go."

I'll see you on the other side.
