Suffering From An Itchy Scalp?

If you have an itchy scalp and when you scratch you are noticing that white flakes are being shed then you have dandruff. This is actually a very common problem and it does affect a great many people from all walks of life.

There are vast number of products that are available for the treatment of dandruff and some are actually very effective indeed. Dandruff is simply an annoying condition that affects the scalp and not the hair.

Probably one of the most common methods for treating dandruff is that of using tea tree oil and in fact this alone is now being used in many shampoo products that are designed to rid people of their dandruff.

You can also add vinegar to some water and then soak a ball of cotton wool into the mixture and then apply this to the scalp and for best results you should allow this to be left overnight. In the morning you should then wash your hair and when rinsing you should use the same vinegar water mixture. This should be continued for as long as needed.

One of the reasons that you can be suffering from dandruff is that you may be using a number of styling products such as gels and also hairspray. Whilst they may help the hair to look great they also have a tendency to cause the scalp to become dry and dryness of the scalp is the main reason for dandruff to appear. Your solution is to avoid the use of such styling products as much as possible.
