We get it. For guys, it’s not just about eliminating dandruff; it’s about finding the best way to do it while keeping up with your grooming routine. We’ve pieced together the ultimate grooming guide to help you stay free of dandruff without cramping your style. Read on to find out how.
Tips on How to Get Rid of Dandruff
1. Get the right shampoo
Don’t just conveniently use your girlfriend or mom’s shampoo. Male scalps are in fact up to 60% greasier than female ones, making you more prone to dandruff. Instead, you should source out a product that’s specially formulated to treat men’s scalps and manage the excess build-up of sebum to get rid of dandruff.
Editor’s tip: Try CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. It cleanses the surface of the scalp and removes excess sebum from the pores while working to end recurring dandruff concern*. It also contains menthol that leaves your hair smelling fresh all day.
2. Wash the right way
With the right shampoo in hand, you’ve found the best way to get rid of dandruff. Right?
Not just yet. The next step is to look at the way you wash your hair and scalp. A hot bath can be relaxing, but piping-hot water can dry out your scalp and leave your hair damaged and prone to breakage. Try to wash with lukewarm water instead and avoid scratching or scrubbing your scalp when shampooing as this can also damage the skin and cause irritation or infection. Massage and lather on shampoo into the roots, where it nourishes the hair best.
3. Ease off the styling
The quiff, the pompadour, the slicked-back—these hairstyles may require a ton of styling gels and pomades. Cutting them out completely can cause a dent in your style, but there are ways you can work with them without incurring the wrath of dandruff.
If you style your hair often, take special care to deep cleanse your scalp and hair to remove dirt, grease, and residue that can build up and clog your scalp pores to cause dandruff. A good deep cleansing shampoo like CLEAR Deep Cleanse Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men can give you the best results when used regularly.
There you have it! With these tips on how to get rid of dandruff, you can beat these white flakes without compromising your style. All you need are some tweaks in your hair care and hairstyling routine, and you’ll be on your way to dandruff-free hair.
