Dandruff can be really embarrassing, yet with the right treatments, it is very easy to cure. Any number of things can cause dandruff, including a dry scalp, eczema, and a fungal infection. Even not washing your hair enough can cause flakes to accumulate.
The standard treatment for dandruff is medicated shampoo that contains active ingredients such as salicylic acid and zinc pyrithione. Medicated shampoos treat the underlying problem, soothe itchy, sore scalps, and eradicate your dandruff. You can also use natural products such as coconut oil as a scalp mask: massage it in, leave for an hour, and wash out. It has antifungal properties and will moisturise a dry, itchy scalp.
