Do you know how to stop dandruff in its tracks?

Even if you're using a premium shampoo and conditioner, the winter weather may wreak havoc on your scalp. Dry air can cause dandruff, which no one wants to see flakes on her shoulders when she turns her head. That being said, there are a few ways that you can keep skin flakes from developing and bringing down your appearance as a whole.

First, Discovery Health recommends using a humidifier during the winter months. This can keep the air in your home moist, which may assist in your battle against flakes. You'll also feel less itch on your skin, which may be prone to drying out in the winter.

Next, Daily Glow encourages the use of a scalp oil or serum to help you keep your head moist and dandruff-free. Once you eliminate the flakes, think about treating your lovely locks with a hair serum as well to add shine and smoothness.

Finally, don't vigorously scrub your scalp in the shower multiple times a day – intense bathing won't eliminate the problem. In fact, hot water may even dry out the skin further and result in more dandruff! Taking these tips into account can help you live flake-free.

Shampoo your flakes away!It's bad enough when your arm or leg is itchy, but when your scalp is dry and irritated, it can feel like there's no such thing as relief. Plus, the embarrassing flakes on your head and shoulders can be a real issue. Instead of putting your hair up in a ponytail and hoping no one will notice, try switching to a moisturizing shampoo.

Dandruff can get worse in the fall and winter when indoor heating gets turned up, drying out your skin. You may notice that your scalp isn't the only part of your body that is red and flaky. Dandruff occurs if your scalp is dry, you don't shampoo enough, you have a skin condition or if you're sensitive to a hair product that you're using. A shampoo like Leonor Greyl Bain Traitant a La Propolis will soothe itchy skin and eliminate flakes. Use it twice in the shower, first to remove impurities and then to moisturize.

Sensitive hair can benefit from Leonor Greyl Creme Aux Fleurs, which replaces shampoo to treat and calm your scalp, even after a perm or hair coloring. Leave it on for several minutes to maximize the benefits and end up with a healthy, moisturized scalp.
