How to get rid of dandruff



August 10, 2010 – So you now know what Dandruff is – but how to get rid of it?

The best way to keep the flakes at bay is to shampoo your hair every day.

Dandruff can, of course, become stubborn, so if washing everyday with your regular shampoo does not stop the flakes, the next best thing to do would be to start using anti-dandruff shampoos.

Look for anti-dandruff shampoos with zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide, salicylic acid or ketoconazole as the active ingredient.

To keep your scalp from developing immunity to these shampoos, go ahead and rotate brands at least once a month.

For optimum results, you can lather your hair with the shampoo of your choice twice. The first wash will clear the scalp of the flakes and the oil buildup. The second one would let the chemicals in the shampoo get absorbed by the scalp.

I also did some research on some homemade remedies to wash the flakes away and keep the dandruff from recurring.

What is considered the best homemade remedy to dandruff is a vinegar wash. Mix two teaspoons of vinegar with six teaspoons of water and rub it against your scalp before you go to bed, then wrap your head with a towel. Apply the same solution to your hair once again in the morning when you wake up, then rinse it with water. You do not have to worry about the smell of vinegar in your hair, as the smell of vinegar does evaporate eventually.

Whatever you do, never, ever scratch the clumps with your fingernails. It will cause wounds on your scalp.

Dandruff is an embarrassing hair condition, but it is not unmanageable. Just take good care of your hair, visit SUQA for a consultation and the flakes will go away. 🙂


  • Good one there….call it the Democracy of Impunity 

  • I totally agree with you on this one!

  •  What happened in London is appalling! But it is a clear message from the disgruntled young generation of Britain. They are fed up with incompetent leadership. They are demanding change. The Principals in the UK coalition government need to heed to this call, and step aside. Kenya shall support progressive voices in Britain who want to see change in their country.

    • Cwmuruga

      I disagree, very strongly, robbery, theft, murder, looting is criminal! What has that got to do with societal change? The  cost of unfettered democracy and poor (widespread single parenthood) is self destruction as we saw in GB. Period!

  • Mugambi

    looking at london burning see the restraint london police showed you cannot even try to compare   with our police here in kenya . 

  • I would wat to think that this is not really Just about the death Duggan (God rest his soul in Peace). Much more surfaces when you critically look at the intricacies of the drama that unfolded. If it was in Kenya Waaaaaaaaa i think we would be talking about how many bodies are at the Morgue !!! 

  • ” Kenyan police have shot, either intentionally or otherwise..’ Well said. I don’t like how international media runs to Kenya so fast whenever there’s an issue. Our leaders are swayed by western leaders’influence. This should stop!

  • Chuck Norris

    I have always the western have never stop their Ukoloni mambo leo!!! Can the UK PM be taken to ICC as well!!

  • When the boys did the same in Tunisia, Cairo, Yemen e.t.c the West hailed them as heroes.
    When they hesitated in Libya, the West goaded them on and promised them support. They even dropped armaments from the sky to make it more fun.

    Now their own boys are reading from the same script it is called “criminality, pure and simple”. What goes round, comes around. Would it have made a difference if the boys added “the queen must go” to their chants? I mean who wouldn’t want to throw a grand wedding at great expense to the taxpayer?
