DO: SHAMPOO REGULARLY WITH AN ANTI-DANDRUFF SHAMPOO
Dandruff doesn’t go away on its own. The most effective way to get rid of the signs of dandruff and keep them from coming back is to use a good quality anti-dandruff shampoo.
Anti-dandruff shampoos are specially formulated with active ingredients that tackle the causes and signs of dandruff in different ways. For example, OMIT Headcare Shampoo uses clinically proven natural ingredients and is safe to use daily to help rebalance the scalps ecosystem by decreasing excess oils and reducing the appearance of dandruff and dry flakes.
DO: KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DANDRUFF AND DRY SCALP
It’s important that you identify your exact scalp issue before you pass on to the treatment. A quick way to tell the difference between Dandruff and dry scalp is to take a look at the flakes it produces: If you’re suffering from a dry scalp, the flakes will be white in colour, smaller in size and will fall off the scalp more frequently. Dandruff flakes are larger than dry scalp flakes, and do not fall off the scalp as easily.
DON'T: SCRATCH YOUR SCALP
When you’ve got an itchy scalp the temptation to scratch it can be overwhelming, but don’t give in. Scratching an inflamed scalp is only going to make it worse and possibly cause further damage to your skin.
When you have an inflamed scalp it is extra important to wash your hair gently. The best way to deal with an itchy scalp is to gently massage OMIT Headcare Shampoo in your scalp rather than abrasively working product in to the scalp.
DON'T: LEAVE YOUR HAIR WET
If you are still using the old-fashioned ‘air dry’ after your get out of the shower, blow-drying your hair might save you from trouble in the long run. We know blow-drying your hair every day seems a bit of a hassle, but if you don’t, it might mean bad news for your hair, and even worsen your Dandruff. Wet hair is more susceptible to damage and breakage. The sweat and damp that accumulate on the scalp when the hair is drying can encourage itchiness and flaking.
