How to Get Rid of Severe Dandruff


Severe dandruff isnt any harder to treat than mild flaking just make sure you choose the right shampoo and follow the right routine and you should be flake-free in no time.

If you have severe dandruff, an anti-dandruff shampoo should still be able to deal with the problem.

Thats 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 youre suffering from particularly heavy flaking:

  • wash your hair frequently- if your flaking is heavy because you produce more scalp oil than usual, its a good idea to keep your hair and scalp as clean as possible

  • 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 to work hand-in-hand with it. See our anti-dandruff conditioners.
