Stubborn dandruff isn’t any harder to treat than mild flaking – just make sure you choose the right shampoo and follow the rightroutine and you should be flake-free in no time.
If you have stubborn dandruff, an anti-dandruff shampoo should still be able to deal with the problem.
That’s because, regardless of the amount of flaking, the cause of dandruff is always the same – a naturally occurring microbe called Malassezia Globosa.
More about what causes dandruff
Here are a few things to try if you’re suffering from particularly heavy flaking:
- wash your hair frequently– if your flaking is heavy because you produce more scalp oil than usual, it’s a good idea to keep your hair and scalp as clean aspossible
- use your anti-dandruff shampoo regularly– anti-dandruff shampoo is only effective as long as you keep using it. If you stop, flakes are likely to return
- use an anti-dandruff conditioner– cosmetic conditioners can wash away the active ingredient in your dandruff shampoo, so make sure your conditioner is designed towork hand-in-hand with it. See our anti-dandruff conditioners.
