Choose a mild shampoo
Most anti-dandruff shampoos can leave your hair dry and stripped of its natural moisture. Using a shampoo that can treat your dandruff without damaging your hair is key. You may have to try several products to figure out which one suits your hair type best. Use a mild shampoo that is not harsh on your hair.
Try home remedies
Applying fermented curd, oiling your hair regularly and eating right can solve your dandruff woes to a large extent. Cut back on your consumption of sugary foods and yeast - and add proteins, whole grains, legumes and other vegetables rich in B vitamins and zinc to your diet.
Keep it natural
Avoid coloring or streaking your hair if you suffer from a dandruff problem - it will only worsen your problem. Even heat styling products can add further damage, so you should try and avoid them as much as possible.
