Finding a dandruff treatment that fits alongside your grooming routine is crucial. That’s why we’ve put together an ultra-effective men’s grooming guide that’ll help you stay flake free and looking good at all times. Read on to find out more…
GET THE RIGHT SHAMPOO
The first step in getting rid of dandruff is choosing the right shampoo. Men’s scalps are actually 50% greasier than women’s and much more susceptible to the effects of dandruff. This makes it really important to look out for shampoos that are specially made to deal with male hair and the excess sebum that builds up on the scalp.
If you’ve got an oily scalp, swap your women’s or unisex anti-dandruff shampoo for CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Shampoo, which cleanses the surface of the scalp and remove excess sebum from the pores. It also contains lemon and menthol extracts that leave your hair smelling great!
WASH YOUR HAIR THE RIGHT WAY
Once you’ve worked out which anti-dandruff shampoo is the best for you, the next step is making sure you put it to good use. Always wash your hair with lukewarm water as opposed to piping hot water. Water that’s too hot can dry out the scalp and leave the hair prone to damage and breakage.
Never scratch or scrub the scalp when shampooing as this can also damage the skin and cause irritation or infection. Always massage shampoo on to the scalp and gently work it in to the roots where it benefits the hair the most.
DON'T OVER STYLE YOUR HAIR
Hair gels and pomades are a great way of giving your hair body and shape, but they should always be used sparingly. Avoid styling gels that contain alcohol, especially if you have dandruff, as these can dry out the scalp and increase the appearance of flakes. If you frequently style your hair, it is always recommended to deep cleanse your scalp and hair with an effective shampoo such as CLEAR Deep Cleanse Shampoo, removing dirt, grease, residues which potentially clog your scalp pore and causes dandruff.
TRY OUT SOME HOME REMEDIES
You don’t have to spend lots of money to keep your hair clear and dandruff-free. Home remedies can be very effective when used alongside your regular anti-dandruff shampoo. Try massaging in some coconut oil in to your scalp an hour before your next shampoo – the coconut oil’s natural anti-fungal agents and vitamin E will help clean, condition and hydrate the scalp.
Keeping your scalp flake free is a big step towards feeling confident and cool. Use our helpful tips as part of your regular male grooming routine to help yourself feel great inside and out.
