Oops! You've got dandruff?

So you take a girl for dinner and half way into the food, she starts hitting her head and you whisper to yourself "well all females do that"...and next thing the babe starts scratching vigorously and then you notice something on her shoulder, lo and behold GARRI !!! dandruff!

wadup people, how you guys doing? been a while I blogged yeah? I know o...busy like a bee.
How market? how body? sho wa pa? hehehe learning yoruba o :D

So today is the day the Lord has made and I am talking about DANDRUFF! I hate dandruff, I know you hate it too but before I give you the full tory, biko there are some serious facts you need to know about this dandruff.

Dandruff is a form of skin eczema called seborrhea, it occurs in parts of the body with high sebum (oil) production like the scalp, ears and face but I have decided to focus on the scalp dandruff because that is the most common.

Dandruff is not really about the hair or how often you wash it tho, it is about the skin on the scalp and I take Baba God beg you, it is not contagious and it cannot be transferred by using the same comb with someone who has it.
All those gist of "I think I got dandruff from that saloon" na lie ooo, nobody gave it to you. Another thing you should know is that it affects more men than women..oops again..hehehe yep!

I know dandruff is hard to treat, been there and it is very embarrassing so the best advice I have for you if you are ashamed, is that you should start treating it at home It is very easy.

There are different causes of dandruff including simple dry skin, not washing your hair enough, eczema, sensitivity of hair care products but dry skin is the most common cause of flaking dandruff.

Personally, I hate hearing problems without solution so I am just going to go ahead and tell you how to solve this dandruff problem.

Unfortunately the exact cause of dandruff is not known but there are somethings that you can do to reduce your risk of getting it and effective treatments are available if you already have it.

      Eat healthy, balanced diet; healthy diet may ward off the flakes. Make sure to get plenty of zinc, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin E and B-vitamins and also avoid yeast and sugar.

Don’t worry, Be happy; stress challenges the body’s defenses and encourages all sorts of ailments including dandruff, so relax and don’t worry.

Limit your use of hair styling products; hair sprays, mousse and gel may contribute to dandruff in some people. These products may also cause excessive drying of the skin, which can cause flaking or trigger allergic reactions. If you notice dandruff soon after you begin to use a new product biko stop it sharp sharp! chances are the product is to blame.

Wash your hair regularly; dandruff seems to thrive in oily hair, so regular shampooing can help fight it off. If you already have dandruff, washing your hair regularly may help you keep the symptoms (flakes) under control until it goes away.

      Use a dandruff shampoo; if despite all the shampooing, you may need something stronger. Try a shampoo with zinc, it helps fight dandruff. Please follow the instructions carefully.

Oil your hair regularly; oil your hair with herbal oils or use special herbal gels. Use on a regularly basis at least twice a week for improvements. Natural herbal oils are the best for you and I recommend tea tree oil.
7   This oil is renowned for its anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties, making it an excellent option for fighting dry scalp and the effects of dry hair. It also smells great and moisturizes. Go get one today!

Be patient; there is no short cut to this one o, you have to wait it out...Just as it didnt take one day for the dandruff to build up, it wont take one day for it to go away. So just chill and you would see results eventually.

If you follow this tips, your dandruff would reduce and eventually go away.
Also you should see a doctor first because you need to be sure that it is a regular dandruff and that you are perfectly healthy.

Ehen If after doing all I have said and tried dandruff shampoos and the dandruff still dey there, Please see your doctor.

Okay so It is finished...Oti tan

Please If you have any tip for dandruff treatment, please share I would like to know. Thank you :)

Having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which he purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth in Him
