How to get rid of Dandruff Naturally?

How to get rid of Dandruff Naturally?

Accumulation of dandruff in your hair can cause terrible embarrassment though it is a common condition caused due to a dry scalp. Dandruff removal is a great challenge for many and most of them spend a lot of money and time in avoiding dandruff. Actually, it is caused by a skin condition that is known as seborrheic dermatitis. Dandruff may also be caused by acute psoriasis or eczema, which are again skin conditions caused by fungi.

Common Treatments:

While there are numerous brands of shampoos lining the shelves of drug stores and departmental stores, none of them offer a permanent cure. It is more of a trial-and-error method that often ends in a wild goose chase, and does leave you with an empty wallet. The sad truth is that people are not aware of the best dandruff treatment and many don’t know if any such safe treatment exists.

Causes of Dandruff:

Let us first look at some more causes of dandruff. It is not just dry skin that is responsible for dandruff. The actual reason is the abundant growth of yeast known as pityrosporum orbiculare. This is a kind of parasitic yeast that feasts on the oils present in the skin. That is why it is common to find people with oily skin having more dandruff than people with dry skin. Another reason is being stressed out due to work or domestic tensions. Hence, it is important to learn to relax and take it easy as stress is known to worsen existing skin conditions.

Another common reason is not maintaining your hair properly. Shampooing your hair regularly is very important. Shampoo helps wash away the excess oil, thus depriving the yeast of the oil that it is known to thrive on. Another surprising yet strong reason is indulging in an unhealthy diet, which again is known to cause dandruff. Avoid diets rich in saturated and trans fats, which cause more oil to be produced on your skin.

Saffron as Remedy for Dandruff:

It is best to go for natural home remedies for dandruff removal as they are safe and not very expensive. Did you know about the benefits of saffron for your hair? Let’s see how saffron can fight dandruff and give you that glossy, bouncy hair you’ve been dreaming about all along. Just mix 1 gm of black pepper powder and a pinch of pure crushed saffron in 50 ml of cold pressed sesame oil. Warm this mixture over a mild flame and apply it on your hair. You’ll be surprised to know that this is probably the best dandruff treatment that is also very safe.
