How to get rid of dandruff

Time Out Dubai has health and beauty advice from haircare experts in Dubai, with this five step plan for how to get ride of dandruff

1 Switch shampoo
It could be that your current brand is not suited to your skin and hair type.

2 Wash daily
A build-up of natural oils on the scalp can cause flaking. Washing your hair daily can keep grease to a minimum.

3 Rotate products
If you’ve been using anti-dandruff shampoo, you may find you build up a resistance to the ingredients. A good rule is to rotate between three different versions of these shampoos.

4 Shower more in hotter months
Skin flakes more when sweat isn’t washed away, so when Dubai heats up, take a shower more often.

5 Look at your diet
Eating a diet rich in leafy greens and oily fish can do wonders for the skin – and that includes the scalp. You could also try taking an omega-3 supplement.
