Eco Friendly Natural Dandruff Remedies

Dandruff. Many people have it, and if you are looking at this page, you are interested in getting rid of it naturally, without harsh chemicals. Many dandruff shampoos have a chemical smell and leave your hair stiff and unmanageable. With natural dandruff remedies, you can get rid of your dandruff and have great hair too.

To help get rid of dandruff we need to look at the cause. Not all dandruff is caused by the same thing and each cause should be treated differently. There are four main causes of dandruff: dry skin, seborrheic dermatitis (or oily, irritated skin), the fungus malassezia, and dermatitis. If you don’t know which type of dandruff you have, check out these descriptions to see if they match your condition.

Dry Skin

If you have naturally dry skin, especially in the winter or dry months, dandruff may be a result. The flakes are small and do not clump together. It is relatively simple to control this type of dandruff. Normal dandruff shampoos with lots of harsh chemicals can actually worsen this type of dandruff, causing more dryness and irritation. Your scalp needs a moisturizing shampoo or conditioner that will not clog the pores on your head and will balance oil production. Here are some suggestions for a natural, organic treatment:

Natural Dandruff Conditioner

Dandruff conditioner will leave you hair and scalp moisturized. No harsh chemicals so your scalp will not become more irritated.

 

 

Dry scalp shea butter

Shea Butter is absorbed into your scalp, leaving it hydrated and healthier. No harsh chemicals, which can leave your scalp more dry and irritated. Alcohol, sulfate and paraben free!

Seborrheic Dermatitis

Simply put, Seborrheic Dermatitis is irritated, oily skin. The oil glands on the head produce more oil, usually due to hormones or stress, and dead skin cells clump together to form oily clumps of dandruff. You scalp needs a treatment that balances out oil production and relieves itching. If you are not maintaining good hygiene, that may be your issue. Washing your hair frequently will naturally rid your scalp of dead skin and oil build up. But for those with stubborn dandruff, here are some suggestions:

Organic Hair Products to Cure Dandruff
Malassezia (fungus)

                This fungus lives naturally on most people’s scalps, but an excess of oils secreted from oil glands can cause the Malassezia fungus to grow rapidly, causing more skin growth and leaving a scaly, irritated scalp.  If you have this type of dandruff then you need a natural remedy that has anti-fungal properties.  Anything with tea tree extract or vinegar will work, so check out the ingredients of these treatments:

Dermatitis

                Some people experience dandruff symptoms when they have a reaction to one or more of the hair care or coloring products they use.  This is called contact dermatitis.  An easy way to avoid this is by using shampoos and conditioners that have natural ingredients and no harsh chemicals such as alcohol, parabens or sulfides.  Check out justnaturalskincare.com to look for great nature-derived hair care products.

If you have an allergic reaction to a hair product, discontinue use and use some natural itching and redness relief treatment:
