Lifestyle and home remedies
In addition to regular shampooing, you can take steps to reduce your risk of developing dandruff:
- Learn to manage stress. Stress affects your overall health, making you susceptible to a number of conditions and diseases. It can even help trigger dandruff or worsen existing symptoms.
- Shampoo often. If you tend to have an oily scalp, daily shampooing may help prevent dandruff.
Get a little sun. Sunlight may be good for dandruff. But because exposure to ultraviolet light damages your skin and increases your risk of skin cancer, don't sunbathe.
Instead, just spend a little time outdoors. And be sure to wear sunscreen on your face and body.
