Dandruff: Causes and Remedies

I've been battling with this scalp problem since my high school days. Dandruff is really annoying. It does not only gives you an itchy scalp but it also decreases your self-confidence because of the white flakes that would often time be seen on your shoulders especially if you're wearing dark colored tops. Dandruff makes me uncomfortable and sometimes, miserable.

What causes dandruff? Dandruff is actually normal. Dandruff or also known as scurf, is the shedding of dead skin on the scalp. Excessive flaking of the scalp and itchiness would be a reason for anyone to consult a physician or better yet, try some remedies to treat it. According to this website, dandruff can be the result of overactive oil glands, food allergies, STRESS, excessive perspiration or harsh shampoos. That's why before trying on some remedies, one should identify first what really is the cause of his or her itchy scalp.

I can't remember since when have I been searching for the perfect remedy for my scalp problem. I even tried this Kraft Miracle Whip Hair Treatment. This KMW hair treatment worked for only a short period. My dandruff problem returned again. I've tried a lot of dandruff home remedies. But there's only one anti-dandruff shampoo that works for me eversince I can't remember. The only one thing that holds me back from buying this shampoo is it's PRICE. Yes. It's way too expensive. But this past few weeks, I'm starting to lose my self-confidence. Dandruff flakes all over my shoulders makes me want to hide inside my bag. It's too embarrasing. Really. I have no other choice but to slash off a small portion of my savings and bought this expensive Nizoral Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. And after two shampoo sessions, I now feel like my scalp is starting to breathe fresh air! Haha! :) And oh by the way, when using Nizoral Maximum Treatment, it's too strong for the scalp and the hair as well, so it's not advisable to use it daily. Twice a week can already help diminish those fungi and other bacterias that helps on cultivating dandruff flakes.

I realized lately that dandruff is also a pain in the pocket. It will cost you so much if your skin is too sensitive. There a lot of shampoos for dandruff, but not all are good in treating this scalp problem. That's why one should always be careful in choosing the right shampoo. One should also watch his or her diet because wrong food intake can aggravate dandruff. And when feeling so stressed, then maybe it's time to unwind and relax :) Give your body a rest because it's the temple of your soul. >Ü<

I gave up all caffeinated drinks and this led to a very quick cure for my dandruff. Within a few days the itching stopped and the dandruff disappeared. If I drink coffee again for 2 days in a row the dandruff and itching comes back quickly. Also my blood pressure dropped about 10% after stopping coffee. So perhaps give it a try. It'll be worth the withdrawal.
