Winter brings many unpleasant things like cold weather, ice, snow, dry skin, chapped lips and for some, unpleasant dry scalp or dandruff. While it may not be something you want to admit to, it’s totally normal for the dry heat, cold air and a multitude of styling products to cause an irritated and itchy scalp. Until now, most dandruff shampoos available at your local pharmacy either smell funky, are blue or green in color and are just generally not fun to buy or use. That’s why the hair gurus at Garnier created Garnier Fructis Anti-Dandruff Shampoos. These shampoos offers a better way to fight flakes, in a dual-action formula that gives 48-hour dandruff control.
The purifying formula is infused with natural extracts to fight dandruff at its source for a deep, flake-free clean. The addition of B-Vitamins leaves hair strengthened and healthy. The shampoos come in three varieties: Clean & Fresh, Dry Scalp and Intense Cleanse, and there’s also a Clean & Fresh 2-in-1 (Shampoo + Conditioner) for those that like to multitask.
In addition to using these shampoos, there are also other steps you can take to reduce your chances of developing dandruff, some of which are simple lifestyle changes:
- Learn to manage stress: Stress affects your overall health, making you susceptible to a number of conditions and diseases. It can even help trigger dandruff or worsen existing symptoms.
- Shampoo often: If you tend to have an oily scalp, daily shampooing may help prevent dandruff.
- Cut back on styling products: Hair sprays, gels and mousses can all build up on your hair and scalp, making them oilier.
- Eat a healthy diet. A diet that provides enough zinc, B vitamins and certain types of fats may help prevent dandruff. (Tips courtesy of The Mayo Clinic).
