    Dandruff Prevention- 18 tips to Stop Flaking

    Don’t ignore Dandruff- Whatever you do. Don’t ignore your dandruff or fall into a scratch and itch cycle. Ignoring the condition lets the scaling build up on your scalp. That in turn can cause itching, which can lead to scratching. Scratching too vigorously can wound the scalp and leave it open to infection.
    Shampoo Often- the experts are unanimous on this point: Wash your hair often- every day if necessary. Generally, the more frequently you shampoo, the easier it is to control the dandruff.
    Start mild- Often a mild, non-medicated shampoo is enough to control the problem. Dandruff is frequently caused by an overly oily scalp. Shampooing daily with a mild brand diluted with an equal amount of distilled water can control the oil without aggravating your scalp.
    Then get tough- If regular shampoos aren’t doing the job, switch to an anti dandruff formula. Dandruff shampoos are classified by their active ingredients, which work in different ways. Those with selenium sulfide or zinc pyrithione work fastest, retarding the rate which scalp cells multiply. Those with salicylic acid and sulfur loosen flakes so they can be washes away easily. Those with antibacterial agents cut down bacteria on the scalp and reduce the chance of infection. Those with tar retard cell growth.
    Beat the tar out of it- For very stubborn cases, I recommend tar-based formulas. Lather with the tar shampoo and then leave it on for 5 or 10 minutes so the tar has a chance to work. Most people rinse dandruff shampoos off too quickly. If you’ve avoided tar shampoos because you remember them as having unpleasant smells, be aware that many newer formulas are more pleasant.
    Don’t be too harsh- If tar-based shampoos-or any other dandruff preparations- are too harsh for everyday use, alternate them with your regular shampoo
    Don’t mix black with blond- If you have blond or sliver hair, you might want to think twice about tar-based shampoos. They can give light hair a brownish stain.
    Lather twice- Always lather twice with a dandruff shampoo. Work up the first lather as soon as you step into the shower so the shampoo has sufficient time to work. Leave it on until you’re just about finished with your shower. Then rinse. The second rinse will leave just a bit of the medication on your scalp so it can work until your next shampoo.
    Cap it- Still another approach to improving the effectiveness of medicated shampoos. After you lather up, put a shower cap on over your wet hair. Leave it on for an hour, then rinse as usual.
    Switch –hit- If you’ve found a brand of shampoo that works well for you, keep using it. Be aware, however that your skin can adapt to a shampoo’s ingredients, so you’d be wise to change your brand every few months to maintain its effectiveness.
    Massage it in- When shampooing gently massage your scalp with your fingertips to help loosen scales and flakes. But don’t scratch your scalp. That can lead to sores that are worse than the dandruff.
    Invest some extra thyme- Thyme is reputed to have mild antiseptic properties that can help alleviate dandruff. Make  an effective rinse by boiling 4 heaping tablespoons of dried thyme in 2 cups of water for 10 minutes. Strain the brew and allow it to cool. Pour half the mixture over clean damp hair, making sure the liquid covers the scalp. Massage in gently. Don’t rinse, save the remainder for another day.
