Dandruff 101

A health article from Your Health Online the A to Z directory of dealing with Health Problems & nutritional Self Care Strategies

Dandruff is a pesky problem that causes distress in many people all over the world. No one likes to have white flakes visible in their hair and on their clothes.

Dandruff sufferers often feel that others think they are dirty or do not wash their hair, hence their dandruff. As a dandruff sufferer, you know that is not the case.

So why do you still get dandruff if you wash your hair regularly? There are a number of reasons. One is stress (stressing about your dandruff can actually make it worse), diet, lack of activity/exercise and even the shampoo you use.

Stress can degrade your entire health so it's little wonder that dandruff can form when you are stressed. Reducing your stress levels through good sleep patterns, healthy diet and regular exercise can possibly completely cure, or at least reduce your dandruff.

Diet is another major cause of dandruff that people tend to ignore. If your diet is full of junk food, your skin is going to suffer. And remember, your scalp is skin too.

Some anti-dandruff shampoos just do not agree with some peoples scalps. If your shampoo isn’t doing its job, its time to try another brand.

Allergic hypersensitivities can also cause dandruff. If you feel you may be allergic to something then you should see a doctor to eliminate this as a cause of dandruff.

Excessive intake of sugar or fat may also be a contributing factor. Cut down these unhealthy foods and your overall skin condition will improve radically (not to mention your health).

If you use a certain type of hair spray or gel, consider it as a cause of dandruff and try another brand. Also ensure you wash your hair VERY thoroughly particularly when you are using products such as spray and gel in it.

Even some types of hair coloring products may cause dandruff to people who are sensitive to its ingredients.

As with any dry skin on your body, dandruff can be caused by cold weather, wind and general skin conditions. Wear a beanie or hat when outside in cold weather and see a dermatologist to rule out any severe skin conditions that may be causing your dandruff.

Dandruff is a manageable condition once you find the root cause of the problem. Most people find that using a good quality anti-dandruff shampoo 3-4 times per week and coupling that with a healthy lifestyle is all they need to eliminate dandruff.

Even when we try to eat well, we're disadvantaged. The nutritional content of most food has been compromised over the years, not only by deficient soils and modern production, transportation, storage and processing methods, but also by the enormous amounts of chemical and artificial substances added to promote growth, storage life, taste and appearance.

It's for this reason that more and more medical authorities are advocating the use of vitamin and mineral supplements. However, finding them in the right combination can be both confusing and costly.

The nutrition products I am going to recommend you make use of knowledge gained from the botanical world's 6,000 year history. They incorporated health building nutritional herbs with the best modern technology to help our bodies cleanse and detoxify so that the cells - the tiniest living units - can be as fully nourished as possible.

This allows the cells to grow, repair and to perform their functions with the best possible efficiency so that we feel and look better and are more able to prevent and fight disease. Once the body begins to clear itself of toxins it can more efficiently absorb nutrition.
