Ultimate guide on how to get rid of dandruff fast


If you have dandruff, you may be looking for a way to get rid of it as fast as possible. But this is not just a cosmetic problem—it can also cause itchiness and discomfort. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to treat dandruff in the comfort of your own home so that you don't have to worry about embarrassing flakes or itching for long. In fact, there are several natural remedies for dandruff that could help clear up your skin quickly.

Don't brush it out of your hair.

You might have heard that brushing your hair can help get rid of dandruff. But don't do it! Brushing can actually make things worse by causing more irritation and spreading the flakes around, which makes your scalp even more irritated. If you brush your hair when it's dry, the result will be even worse: You'll end up with broken strands and an even bigger mess.

Avoid other triggers as much as possible.

  • Avoid other triggers as much as possible.

  • Avoid products with sulfates, alcohol and other harsh chemicals.

  • Use gentle shampoos and conditioners that are free from sulfates or parabens (a preservative). The ZAM Effect collection is all natural and great for fighting conditions such as dandruff.

  • Avoid using hair dryers and heated tools like flat irons, curling irons and blow dryers as much as possible. These can make your dandruff worse by drying out your scalp even more than it already is!

  • Don't scratch your head too much when you have dandruff because this can cause inflammation which leads to more flakes of dead skin cells falling off onto your shoulders/clothes/pillow cases etc... It also makes the area around where you've been scratching redder which makes it look like there's more flakes than there actually are so try not to do this unless absolutely necessary! :)

Dandruff isn't just a cosmetic problem.

Did you know that dandruff isn't just a cosmetic problem? It can be an indication of a more serious condition.

For example, scalp conditions like psoriasis, eczema and seborrheic dermatitis cause inflammation that leads to flaking skin. Other health issues such as diabetes or thyroid disorders can also lead to dandruff by causing your body's metabolism to slow down. Heart disease can cause plaque buildup in the arteries leading to clogged pores and infection on the scalp--which causes flakes!

Try tea tree oil, coconut oil, and apple cider vinegar for natural remedies for dandruff.

If the remedies above don't work:

  • Go to see a doctor. The problem could be more severe than just dandruff, so it's better to get checked out by someone who knows what they're doing. They might recommend some medication or even surgery if there's something wrong with your scalp.

  • Try a different shampoo/conditioner combo (or switch shampoos entirely). Your hair type may not be compatible with the current products that you're using; try experimenting with other brands until one works well enough for you.* If all else fails, consider changing up your diet and lifestyle habits.*
