Instead of taking medications, we must try first the natural treatment. We may be thinking on how can we treat or what home remedies we can use to control and eliminate dandruff. In order to know the best remedy, we must first learn the causes of our dandruff. The possible causes of dandruff are the skin allergies which can cause skin irritations, the psoriasis or eczema, hydration and diet, fungus or yeast and the under or over washing of scalp.
In order to treat our dandruff naturally, we must start with the inside out. Our skin is a good indicator that a person is healthy or with chronic illness. Drinking the right amount of water in a day can keep our body healthy and free from sickness. Dehydration not only affects dandruff but it also affects the energy levels of our body. Therefore, it is best to start drinking enough water while working on other remedies to control dandruff. Proper diet is also needed to eliminate and control itchy white flakes. If we suspect that our dandruff is caused by yeast, we have to change our diet by eating the proper food. We must learn to limit eating natural sweeteners like maple syrup, honey and even sweet fruits. Limit also eating bread and other food that has yeast ingredients. Fried foods, seafood, chocolates and nuts are also some food to avoid because these maybe are the cause of the dandruff your suffering. We should also examine our diet for allergens. If we have eczema, raisins, dried fruits and dairy should be avoided. It’s also important to consider the environmental factors that can cause dandruff. We must also consider what kind of shampoo or conditioner we are using .We should avoid shampoos with active ingredients of sodium laurel sulfates because it is known to cause irritation on scalp. Avoid using hair sprays but instead, using a simple hair style will help prevent and control dandruff. Switching also to all natural cleaners will help remove hazardous substances that can irritate our skin.
Again, taking natural dandruff treatment will not work for just an overnight. It will take some time to remove the problem completely. We need to know what causes our dandruff to apply the proper treatment in our scalp. Essential oils are needed to treat it. As what I had read, the lavender, wintergreen, melaleuca, thyme, cypress and rosemary are the best essential oils that can be a natural treatment for dandruff. Essential oils are good treatment not only to human beings but also to dog dandruff. As a tip, we must take note that essential oils are good for dogs only but never use it to your pet cats for it can harm the skin more.
There are also herbs, plants and food that are effective to control and remove dandruff. Aloe vera is also good for eczema, yeast, fungus and other skin irritations.
