Dandruff is a condition of the scalp that causes flakes of skin to appear, and it is surprisingly more common than you think. While it typically affects more men than women, one of every five people suffer from this scalp condition. Despite common belief, dandruff has nothing to do with poor hygiene, but flakes may be more visible if your hair is not looked after properly. While the exact cause of dandruff is unknown, it can be hard to treat, but it is not impossible to get rid of.

Research has found that dandruff isn’t just bad for your scalp, it’s harmful for the overall health of your hair. Put simply, it all comes down to the skin on your scalp. The skin cells on your scalp grow and die off too fast, causing white flakes to fall from your scalp. This makes your scalp dry, red and very irritated, causing you to itch, which in turn leads to more flakes.

Dandruff has been known to make people angry with their scalp, and at times, has even caused them to feel self-conscious of their hair. Although there is no reason to be embarrassed by this common scalp condition, you can’t just leave it be… you need to fight against it. The best way to do that is with an all-natural anti-dandruff shampoo.

The benefit of using an all-natural product is that all the ingredients used are pure. This means all the vitamins, nutrients and minerals will be absorbed by your scalp and hair, to calm and soothe the irritation caused by dandruff. Most importantly, by using an all-natural shampoo and conditioner, you won’t be washing your scalp any harmful chemicals. Sulfates and parabens are chemical agents commonly found in conventional shampoos and conditioners, and they are known to cause dandruff flares, or in some cases, make dandruff worse. All-natural shampoos are sulfate-free, paraben-free and even cruelty-free. The best all-natural anti-dandruff products are peppermint shampoo and peppermint conditioner.

Peppermint shampoo is great at fighting against dandruff and soothing your scalp. Peppermint oil’s natural antiseptic properties gently cleanse the scalp and removes harmful chemical, dirt and oil build-up, but helps maintain the natural oils needed for proper hair and scalp health. This keeps your scalp moisturised, but doesn’t make it too oily. Refreshing and vitalizing, this all-natural shampoo also has special anti-inflammatory properties that will soothe your scalp and prevent you from constantly scratching. It will calm your scalp in no time!

Of course, if you’re using peppermint shampoo to fight dandruff, you’ll also want to use peppermint conditioner. Peppermint oil boosts circulation to promote hair growth, but most importantly, it balances your scalp’s production of sebum, leaving your hair nourished and hydrated without weighing it down.

For best results in fighting against dandruff, and preventing it from coming back in the future, you’ll want to wash and condition your hair two to three times per week. Also, wash and condition with cool water, as hot water can dry out your scalp and cause a dandruff flare up.
