1. Oily and Sensitive scalp

Oily skin have been on trend since then, but do you know oily scalp also exists, seen mostly in oily skinned people on some combination ones. This can be easily found, see how many days it takes for your scalp to get naturally oily without applying any sort of oils on your scalp. If its less than 4 days, you may have an oily scalp leading to dandruff and also blackheads, whiteheads and clogged pores on your foreheads.

Over shampooing may strip off excessive oil on your scalp and may lead to dryness making your scalp to produce even more oil than before, may it any kind of scalp, shampoo twice a week. There also lies a point on what kind of shampoo you are using, use a mind non-drying shampoo.

No! baby shampoos are not for you, our scalp and hair follicles are more mature and a baby shampoo being extremely mind cannot help anybody with dandruff. Here are some of my suggestions,

Unhygienic activities can be anything like, shampooing 2 weeks once, no proper oiling and combing, using citrus in hair masks, excessive sweating, using styling tools without heat protectant, tying your hair before drying, applying hair care products on scalp, repetitive chemical treatments and more. We all are knowledged enough to know whats good and not good for our hair right, so do not get into those unhealthy habits frequently.

If you are a person who sweat excessively, wear a good sports headband whenever possible, here’s two of my suggestions,

1. Adidas Sports Hair Bands – Black, White, Grey


2. Cockatoo Sports Headband for Men & Women


3. Nike Speed Performance Headband – Unisex


4. Your Immune System

The very common fungus called malassezia resides on all of our scalp in proper number with is healthy. Humid and oily conditions on scalp may lead to their multiplication causing dandruff and fungal acne on our face. One theory is that, the immune system (especially weakened) may over react to that fungus under stressful or hormonal imbalences.

5. Hormonal Issues

Hormones are what makes our body, an imbalance in them may cause several discomfort in our body, especially in women since the culprit hormones are estrogen and progesterone, though present in small amouts in men but a considerable amount in womens. A imbalace in these 2 hormones may cause excessive production of sebum on face and scalp.

Prescribed medicines and treatment by your dermatologist is needed in these cases.

6. Product Sensitivity

Products with sulphates, parabans, mineral oils, alcohols, fragrances, formaldehyde, silicones, phthalates, PPDs are bad for our hair and scalp and may cause severe discomfort and dandruff on prolonged use. So make sure that you go through all the ingredients before buying a hair care product.

What should a shampoo or a conditioner contain? Check for a sulphate and paraban free product without artificial colours and fragrances, look for humectants like olive or coconut oil and keratin like ingredients. Mango and shea butter are conditioners which can help your hair long way in maintaining frizz.

Especially look for brands which disclose their complete ingredient list!

7. Skin conditions

Skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis can also cause dandruff, but these are not the normal ones since they come along with redness, inflamation and infection. A person should seek medical treatment if symptoms are severe or do not resolve with over the counter treatments.
