Treatment of dandruff by herbal oil

Prof Madiraju V Subramanyam

Dandruff is a chronic condition that can almost always be controlled, but it may take a little patience and persistence. In general, mild scaling can often be helped by daily cleansing with a gentle shampoo to reduce oiliness and cell buildup. When regular shampoos fail, OTC dandruff shampoos may succeed. But dandruff shampoos aren`t all alike, and one may need to experiment until the best one is found. Dandruff shampoos are classified according to their active ingredient:

One can`t prevent dandruff, but can take steps to reduce risk:Learn to manage stress. Stress affects your overall health, making you susceptible to a number of conditions and diseases. It can even help trigger dandruff or exacerbate existing symptoms. Shampoo often. If you tend to have an oily scalp, daily shampooing to remove the excess oil may help stave off dandruff.
Cut back on styling products. Hair sprays, styling gels, mousses and hair waxes can all build up on hair and scalp, making them oilier. Some people may even develop allergies to various hair care products. Eat a healthy diet. For overall good health, include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains and small amounts of lean protein in your diet. Get a little sun. Sunlight may be good for dandruff. But because exposure to ultraviolet light damages your skin and increases risk of skin cancer, don’t sunbathe. Instead, just spend a little time outdoors. And be sure to wear sunscreen on your face and body.

Complementary and alternative medicine
Most complementary approaches focus on treating the problem from the inside out — with diet and nutritional supplements. Here are some of the most common suggestions:Limit sugar and yeast. Sweets and yeast-containing foods such as bread, beer and wine may encourage the growth of the fungus that causes dandruff. Emphasize B vitamins. These are essential for healthy skin and hair. Good food sources include whole grains, egg yolks, soybeans, bananas, avocados, and nuts and seeds and dark leafy greens, such as spinach. B-vitamin supplements are available in natural foods stores and many drugstores.
