Dandruff is a common problem to most people. It is a most irritating and socially awkward problem, which is difficult to get rid of. But you can get rid of dandruff if you follow these few tips regularly.
1. Wash hair every day. If your hair is exposed to dust, then use a good shampoo. Wash your hair thoroughly after shampooing. Use anti-dandruff shampoo according to your hair type.
2. Dry your hair after bath soon as possible. Do not allow your hair to remain wet for a long time. Leaving the scalp wet for a long time will increase the growth of dandruff.
3. Avoid using combs of others. Dandruff is highly contagious. So clean your comb, brush, towel everyday and avoid using combs used by other people.
