Dandruff, in most cases, is not a serious issue and can be easily treated at home. Here we give you simple measures to cure dandruff in kids.
Separate Combs and Towels: Sharing the same towel or comb and spread dandruff from one person to another. Have separate sets for yourself and each of your kids.
Use a good hair oil: Massaging the scalp with a good hair oil regularly can keep the skin from drying out and causing dandruff.
Anti-dandruff shampoo: Using a good quality medicated anti-dandruff shampoo can treat dandruff in most cases. It is better to consult a doctor before buying the shampoo rather than buying one off the store shelf.
Drink enough fluids: Get your kids to drink enough water during the day to keep their skin hydrated.
Healthy diet: Have a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables (especially green leafy ones). Provide a balance of carbs and proteins to ensure healthy skin.
Combing before hair wash: Combing the hair before shampooing helps take out the dry flakes, which then come off easily during hair wash.
Choose hair care products carefully: Avoid using shampoos or other hair care products with harsh chemicals. Use one suitable for kids with the safest of ingredients.
Good hair-wash routine: Have a good hair wash routine for your kid. While shampooing on a daily basis is not advisable, washing the hair often will keep the dust away and keep the hair clean.
