Health Tip: Home Remedies to Ease Dandruff

Shampoo daily

(HealthDay News) -- Dandruff is an embarrassing problem, but there are home remedies available to help ease flakiness and itching.

The Mayo Clinic advises:

  • Keep stress under control, as stress can worsen flaking.
  • Shampoo every day, especially if your scalp is oily.
  • Limit use of styling products, such as hair spray, gel and wax. These can build up and make the scalp oilier.
  • Eat a nutrient-rich diet that includes plenty of zinc and B vitamins.
  • Allow your scalp a bit of safe exposure to sunlight, but take care not to burn.
