You May Not Be Having Sex, but Something on Your Body Is. Right Now

Man with DandruffThere are currently ten million little fungi feeding off of the naturally occurring oils on your head. They are gorging on fatty acids to remain alive, all the while rendering your scalp a hotbed of itchiness and flakes. And to add insult to injury, they are having sex.  Right now.  On your head. Are you? Probably not, because those fornicating fiends have showered white flecks all over your clothes, making you a little less appealing.

Okay, that may be an exaggeration; I’m sure you’re still considerably attractive. But my point is dandruff is plaguing your scalp,  and you would give anything to get rid of it.  Fortunately, a scientific breakthrough may soon offer you help.  Researchers have successfully cracked the genetic code of dandruff-causing fungi. They have unlocked the secrets, discovering the various types of flake-inducing enzymes that cover your head. This knowledge could lead to more effective treatments, treatments that could prevent rather than address already present dandruff. But what should you do until then?

Don’t wear black. It’s the color that will contrast the most with your white flakes, so you should eliminate it from your wardrobe . . . 

Or you could consider the treatments that are already available. They are, although not 100 percent reliable, more often than not effective. You can easily purchase dandruff shampoos anywhere, such as, and wash away the flakes. However if they don’t work, you do have some herbal options.  Thyme- or sage/rosemary-infused water, when applied as a hair rinse, is said to adequately treat dandruff. As do henna, lemon juice and eucalyptus oil. But your best alternative remedy is tea tree oil. Whether purchased by itself or already mixed into a shampoo, tea tree oil will leave your hair lush and your scalp flake free.
