Like taxes, screaming toddlers on airplanes, and parking tickets, dandruff happens. As inconvenient as this winter of snowstorms that has affected hundreds of thousands of people, dandruff wreaks its own havoc on shoulders and scalps every day. The scalp’s delicate skin is susceptible to irritation caused by cold weather, harsh hair products, or infrequent washing, leading to aggravated patches of itchy skin. In trying to repair itself, the scalp sheds the top layers of skin – the result is those white flakes on shoulders all around you.
There is no shame in dandruff, but why let your black sweaters spend the winter at the back of the closet when you can solve your dandruff problem altogether? We’ve boiled it down to the basics with three simple steps you can take to relieve yourself of that annoying itch and to wear all of your dark tops and hats with the utmost confidence.
Luckily, there are tried-and-true, free lifestyle habits you can adopt to prevent dandruff. By making these practices part of your day-to-day life, you drastically reduce your chances of landing flaky neighbors on your shoulders in the first place. Eating lots of leafy green vegetables, fresh fruit, and nixing excessive yeast and sugar will not only get you one step closer to a sizzling summer body, but healthy levels of zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, and E- and B-vitamins nourish your body and strengthen your scalp against drying. Beyond eating wholesomely, it’s important to wash, rinse, and repeat regularly. Scalp health is directly related to scalp hygiene, but be wary of overstyling. Many hairsprays, mousses, and gels are saturated in chemicals that dry out the scalp and lead to – you guessed it – dandruff.
Sometimes, try as you might, dandruff is simply unavoidable. Do not fear. Do not cancel your Friday night plans. Just pop over to your nearest convenience store and look for that little teal box. Denorex Shampoo is an anti-seborrheic that slows the production of skin cells: essentially, it’s your miracle ointment. Applied topically, like regular shampoo, Denorex restricts the volume of skin cells produced on your scalp, allowing the existing cells to repair themselves and preventing excessive flakiness. Use Denorex 2-3 times a week until your dandruff symptoms subside.
The key to a happy scalp is vigilant upkeep. Keep an eye out for recurring symptoms of dandruff – they could be indicative of chronic ailments such as psoriasis. To solve your problems, Denorex is the medicated over-the-counter brand that most dermatologists recommend to get rid of dandruff. If symptoms persist, a trip to your doctor can remedy the situation with prescription shampoos and treatments.
Dandruff affects everyone: newborns to senior citizens. It doesn’t matter where you live or what car you drive; dandruff happens. The best defense is good offense, so try to eat an apple instead of a cookie now and then and don’t skip a shower if you’re running late for work. Nourish your scalp, keep your hair clean and strong with regular cuts, and don’t pollute your skin with harsh chemicals. Dandruff can, and will, happen, but it is easily remedied with a few Denorex treatments, supplemented by a healthy lifestyle and proactive responses to the smallest itch. By making these simple habits second nature, you’ll be able to wear anything and go anywhere in confidence that people will talk to you, not the small mountains of flakes on your collar.
