Why Do We Get Flaky Dandruff Scalp
There are several reasons why dandruff plagues our hair. Some reasons are medically. If you feel you fall into this category, seek help from your healthcare provider. However, many of the reasons for dandruff are simply based on our activities. Let’s take a look at a few of them.
Your Shampooing Habits
There are ladies among us who love to shampoo their hair each and every day. Others shampoo twice a week and a large chunk of us fit somewhere in the middle. Did you know that shampooing too much or too rarely can contribute to a dandruff problem?

Your Scalp Is Simply Too Dry – Try A dry flaky scalp treatment

When combined with other beneficial oils, it can get the circulation going to your scalp. Also, it promotes scalp health and a healthy scalp isn’t a flaky scalp!
Skipping On The Prevention Step
One major issue can be the ‘head in the sand’ approach. You know what we are talking about, right? The idea that your hair is fine. Thinking a little dandruff is no big deal, so you don’t need to take any precautionary measures.
This is a major no-no! Prevention really is better than a pound of cure and the dandruff dilemma is no exception.

However, you must lift your head out of the sand. Make sure that your hair is armed with the right defenses to stay beautiful and flake-free.

Bottom line, you should use the right natural treatment on your hair. This will ensure your hair roots and ends are getting not only what it needs, but also deserves.
Stress Is Not Your Hair’s Friend
