Dr Oz: How To Stop Dandruff for Good
Dandruff is common but it can be embarrassing and hard to get rid of. Dr Oz enlisted an Assistant of the Day to help him show us all how to manage and eradicate Dandruff. Try applying a Coconut Oil Dandruff Moisturizer or Dr Oz’s Apple Cider Vinegar Dandruff remedy, as seen on the show.
Dr Oz: What Causes Dandruff?
Tracy admitted that she has had dandruff, and it can be worse in winter weather. She also checked Dr Oz for any signs, but she found nothing. However, 2/3 of people are going to experience Dandruff in their lives.
African Americans and Caucasians are more likely to develop Dandruff than other ethnicities. When oil glands secrete too much material, they can irritate the skin, causing flakes to come off on your clothes, like a snowstorm coming from your head.
Hair protrudes from the scalp, and it can cause Dandruff whether it is too oily or too dry. Combing your hair can shake loose the white flakes of skin that can get on your comb and of course on your clothes.
Dr Oz: Psoriasis Vs Eczema
Some types of Dandruff can indicate other health problems, such as Psoriasis, another skin condition. This would present with thick crusty or red lesions and symptoms such as flaking, burning, dry scalp, and itching.
Eczema, another type of skin problem, is not quite as inflamed and itchy as Psoriasis. Both of these can cause or be related to Dandruff.
Dr Oz: Apple Cider Vinegar Dandruff Remedy
Most people probably choose over the counter dandruff shampoos. But Dr Oz shared two natural solutions for treating Dandruff.
- Combine 1/4 cup water with 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar in a spray bottle.
- Shampoo your hair.
- Apply the mixture to the scalp for 15 minutes, twice per week.
This treatment is very effective in most cases.
Dr Oz: Coconut Oil Dandruff Moisturizer
Here is another option. Warm up some Coconut Oil and apply it to the scalp before you shampoo. Let it sit on your head for one hour before rinsing it out.
Do you think either of these dandruff solutions could work for you?
