While various shampoos, hair oils, etc claim to help you with the problem of dandruff, very few of them are actually effective. In the winter season, the problem of dandruff can start taking a toll on your hair health, and everyday life, and therefore, it is important to manage it. Here are 4 ways to keep dandruff at bay, and your hair healthy.

Oil your hair regularly

Since the dry winds of the season can deprive your scalp of moisture, dandruff can start appearing. To avoid dryness, apply oil on your scalp regularly, especially before washing your hair. During the winters, since we bathe with hot water, it can further aggravate the dryness of the scalp, leading to dryness.

Keep your head covered

Whenever you step out when it is extremely windy outside, make sure you cover your head. Use cute hats, caps, scarves, or stylish berets to ensure that your hair and your head are safe from the wind. Not only will this ensure that you do not fall sick, but will also prevent the loss of moisture from your scalp.

Use home remedies to get rid of dandruff

Some home remedies are very effective in preventing and removing dandruff, instead of store-bought shampoos and oils. Take a little coconut oil and heat it. Add a small block of camphor in it, and break it into the oil. Apply this mix on your scalp regularly, every time before you wash your hair. In just a few washes, you will see a significant difference.
