Dandruff can be a source of embarrassment for all of us. The flakes the fall of your head every time you touch your hair and your scalp gets itchy and its a source of irritation. Dandruff is the most common hair problem that most of us face. It just suddenly appears out of nowhere and then refuses to leave. These tiny white flakes can be very frustrating and tough to deal with. Most of us simply use the same old ways to treat dandruff which isn't wrong but how do you treat something that hasn't been diagnosed correctly? Most of us face a problem with getting rid of dandruff because we don't know the type of dandruff that we're dealing with. Dandruff is of different types and every type needs to be treated in the right way to get rid of it and cleanse the hair and scalp. Here are some basic and most common types of dandruff and the best way to treat it.

1. Dry hair related dandruff

This is the most common type of dandruff. People who have dry scalp suffer from this type of dandruff. In most cases, this happens during the winter season that causes your scalp to dry up. It could also happen if you don't wash your hair often or you wash it too often causing it to dry up. This type of dandruff requires oil treatment. Use some hot oil to massage your scalp and leave it overnight. Use products that can moisturize your hair.

2. Oily Scalp related dandruff

Our scalp produces some natural oil to keep our scalp and hair nourished and moisturised, but sometimes our scalp starts producing too much natural oil due to a change in hormones and sometimes even due to not washing our hair properly. This excess oil then mixes up with dirt and dead skin cells and leads to dandruff. Wash your hair properly to treat this dandruff. Don't wash your hair too many times and avoid using oil and styling products. Use home remedies to treat oily scalp related dandruff.

3. Fungal Dandruff

When there is an imbalance in the pH levels of your scalp or if you have an oily scalp it can cause dandruff due to a fungal infection. This kind of dandruff can be contagious and can spread by sharing personal items or contact. Avoid sharing personal items and see a dermatologist to treat this dandruff with the right methods.

4. Product buildup related dandruff

Using styling tools and products on your hair can be harmful if you do it too frequently. These styling products can buildup in the scalp and mix with dirt and dead skin cells and lead to dandruff. Limit the usage of hair products and wash your hair properly. Use home remedies and hair masks to reduce dandruff.
