As you may already notice, dandruff is a common condition suffered by many people. Most people find their dandruff conditions embarrassing and they will often buy all sorts of hair products to hide those white flakes. Unfortunately, most of dandruff products can only mask or hide the symptoms and even so, they only work for a short while. If you want more permanent result, I would suggest you use natural treatment for dandruff instead.
You might think that dandruff is something your inherited from your parents and guess what, you’re half right–the real culprit behind all your dandruff problems is the microscopic yeast that resides on your scalp. If you take a look at someone with a healthy scalp, you will notice that their dead skin cells drop off easily when they brush their hair. If you take a closer look at a scalp with an imbalance pH level, you will notice that there will be a lot of inflammation.
If the yeast is the problem, why not just get rid of it? Well, the yeast is there for a reason. Even on a healthy scalp, the presence of yeast is important required because they help keep your scalp healthy. Understanding the root cause will not only help you treat your dandruff problems permanently but also help improve your general health.
If you have been using a lot of hair sprays or other hair products, it’s time that you take a closer look at the ingredients used in those products. This is because a lot of the ingredients used in these products are actually harmful to your skin. You will also want to stop using any non-organic hair products and see if your scalp condition improves.
Your diet can either nourish your body or bring harm to your system. If your current diet does not provide you with the necessary amount of vitamin B12 your body needs, you will be more vulnerable to dandruff problems. If you have been consuming too much dairy and high-fat products, it’s time to put that to a stop and start eating more vegetables and fruits.
In order to restore pH balance of your scalp, you should include more natural foods into your diet. Herbs such as ginger and garlic have strong anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties which can prevent dandruff. If you find that your body is allergic to oranges, eat other non-citrus fruits such as apple or papaya.
