  46. Hello OCEANA STEPHENS! I am a 35 year old woman and I am working as a nutritionist for the past 12 years. You have asked a wonderful question which many people are unaware about it. Some people might think that there is nothing like that. But to all your confusions, I am here to give you the right solutions. Yes, dandruff diet has become more popular in the recent days and many people living in the western countries have started following them. Diet can really play a major role in treating the dandruff problems present in your scalp and hair. You might be confused how food will cure the dandruff problem. But then there are certain food items and natural ingredients that could promote the health of your scalp. When the health of your scalp gets promoted, obviously it will help your scalp to get rid of any bacterial or fungal infections. These food items will prevent your scalp and hair from getting those itchy symptoms of dandruff. The food items that should be mostly preferred and consumed for dandruff diet are protein, iron, omega-3 and zinc rich foods. You can opt for consuming foods like eggs, chicken, meat, leafy vegetables, fish and whole grains. Start consuming these foods and make yourself stay away from the dandruff problems.

  47. Many people think that the dryness in your hair causes dandruff. But this reason is completely wrong. I can’t say that dryness will never lead to dandruff. Bu then dryness is not the major reason that causes dandruff i your hair and scalp. And the primary reason for causing dandruff in your scalp and hair is the excess amount of sebum secretion. When your scalp produces oil more than the sufficient level, then it would turn your hair and scalp greasy and oily. This makes all the impurities and toxic agents to get stuck on your hair and scalp. This will further lead to the development of dandruff and other fungal infections. So, never leave your hair when you find it too oily naturally. All the remedies that are specified in this article will be used for curing this issue. The orange peel, multani mitti and tea tree oil hair masks will work effectively in reducing the excess oil in your scalp. They also help in removing all the impurities and toxic agents that are present in your scalp and hair. This will automatically reduce the dandruff problem in your hair and scalp also.

  48. No, you should never use hot water for washing your hair. It is always better to prefer either cold or warm water while washing your hair. Using hot water can cause a lot of problems in your hair. This will literally weaken your hair follicles and this will in turn make your hair to fall down very easily. The protein or the keratin layer present in your scalp and hair will get affected when you pour hot water on your hair. This protein or keratin content is the one that offers a proper structure to your hair. So, when this gets affected it will affect the appearance of your hair. This can also lead to dandruff and other hair and scalp problems. So, always avoid using hot water on hair.

  49. Most of the times aspirin tablet won’t create any side effects on any scalp or hair. It is suited for all types of scalp conditions. But then, to avoid any issues or side effects you can do a patch test on any part of your skin before trying it completely on your hair. You can take a small amount of this aspirin mixture and apply it on any of your body parts like hands or legs. Leave the paste to get dry for a few minutes. Then remove it by washing the area with warm or cold water. If you don’t face any irritations or itching, then you can continue to use it on your scalp and hair. But if you face any of the symptoms then it is better to opt for some other remedial measures. You can choose any of the other hair masks that suit your scalp condition and use it on your hair.

  50. My suggestion would be to avoid the chemical smoothening treatment on your hair when you have dandruff problems. This is because; when your hair is subjected to the treatment you are supposed to use certain lotions and creams to alter the keratin structure of your hair. These lotions and chemicals will obviously contain a lot of chemicals in it. So, there are high chances for these chemicals to aggravate the dandruff infection in your scalp and hair. And this might make your hair even worse with the extreme dandruff infections. So, it is always better to cure the dandruff infection at first completely from your hair and scalp. I was affected by dandruff infection from the past two months. One day I came across this article, and tried the baking soda remedy specified in this article. It really worked out very well on my hair and scalp. Now my hair ad scalp is entirely free from the dandruff infections. So, I recommend you also to try that remedy and make your hair to be free from those infections. Once your hair is free from dandruff, then you can go with the chemical smoothening treatment as per your wish.

  51. It is always advised to wash your hair at least twice in a week. When you have dandruff, you should take extra care on your hair. So, it is better to wash your hair at least 3 times a week. This can prevent the impurities and the other dust particles to get settled down in your scalp.
