Dandruff: Say goodbye to flakes

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Is dandruff the only thing standing between you and a closet full of basic black? Follow these tips to keep dandruff under control: 1. Shampoo regularly. Use a medicated shampoo if necessary. 2. Cut back on styling products. Hair sprays, styling gels, mousses and hair waxes can all build up on your hair and scalp. 3. Eat healthy foods. A diet that provides enough zinc, B vitamins and essential fatty acid may help prevent dandruff.
