Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author
of the book the natural hair Bible and founder of for these special videos
I love to answer all of the questions you all send me via email so you have any questions
that you would like for me to answer be sure to check out the description box for additional
information so without further ado we are going to get right on into the video in this
video is inspired by a question that was sent then from a lady named Carrie, Carrie emailed
me and she wants to know how to combat dandruff she specifically wants to know what she needs
to do to help reduce the amount of dandruff she is having so I don’t know how severe or
how moderate her dandruff situation is so I what I am going to do is just give you some
tips and just educate you about what dandruff is a some different things that you can do
to combat the issue that you’re having so if you know or may not know dandruff is a
buildup of dead cells that doesn’t mean you’re not taking care of yourself or something is
wrong with you that’s just what dandruff means for some people it’s very moderate and for
some it’s super extreme so if you’re trying to shampoo your hair more often keep your
hair moisturized and even messaging your scalp to increase circulation and you are is doing
everything and nothing is working I highly suggest that you seek a specialist in your
area that can see her scalp and mentor you one on one to understand your lifestyle your
habits products you are using on your hair and different things to help you lay the perfect
plan to help you kind of moderate your dandruff that you’re experiencing but a great way to
make sure to keep your dandruff at a low and to prevent them from building up is to wash
her hair dandruff is a buildup of dead skin cells so what you want to do is probably shampoo
a little bit more often now if you already have a routine I suggest that you adjust something
because of not you want to continue to have this problem and not know where it’s coming
from and it could be plenty of different reasons as to why you’re experiencing dandruff you
may think its dandruff but it could even be product buildup so that’s why is very important
that you shampoo your hair a little bit more frequently if you use heavy products that
are hard to get out of your hair another tip is that you want to drink water more frequently
when you don’t drink enough water your skin will even become really dry and it’s more
apparent to see dead skin cells flaking everywhere so if you are not hydrated from the inside
it’s going to be a problem that could come up is experiencing dandruff and also you can
make sure to moisturize from the outside by just co washing more frequently in keeping
your scalp moisturized this will help as well because as you get rid of dead skin cells
and things like that if you are dry and dehydrated its just going to be a problem for you to
keep combating those different things so those are some tips that I want to keep in mind
is that just tweaking different things as far drinking more water washing your hair
more frequently and even make sure to lock in that moisture keep and moisturized scalp
by running some oiled fingers across the your scalp this will help you to actually keep
your scalp hydrated as well so just try to do some different tips that I have suggested
to see what will work for you and if you’re in your wits and and nothing is helping then
I highly suggest that you seek someone a specialist in your area that could assist you personally
one on one with your specific situation so for the rest of you watching I hope this has
helped as well because I know sometimes dandruff can be a problem and usually it’s probably
because your maybe dehydrator not drinking enough water what is keeping your scalp moisturized

    Great video. I drink water all the time but I've always had dandruff really bad. I try using oil on my scalp and I message it in everyday and it seems like after I wash my hair and comb it out there is dandruff EVERYWHERE. I've tried using Apple cider vinegar, didn't help

  • YungUglyBoosie says:

    You look like Deion sanders daughter

  • Chipp Marshal says:

    You may have mentioned it already but you should always rinse with ice cold water. I always shower in warm/hot water because cold showers suck! However, when I rinse my hair, I step out of the water, turn it cold and rinse the shampoo with water as cold as I can tolerate. This will close hair follicles and skin pores. You will notice an immediate improvement in the softness and shininess of their hair. Try adding that to your treatment plan for an extra boost.

  • Lanz says:

    i have severe dandruff since 11 and im 16 now. the hairdresser washes my hair once every 2 months because it's really thick and my mum thinks too much washing might acc damage my hair. i really hate my dandruff and i dont know how to wash my own hair , my mum can't wash it either she doesn't want me trying all those natural remedies either ( e.g. apple cider), i use Motions to cream my hair

  • poeticstud101 says:

    Washing your hair every 2 months is way to long to go without cleaning your scalp! I was every 2 weeks some people more often then that! Tell your mom that you need it washed more often to keep scalp healthier and natural remedies are great to use! Make sure if you use shampoo it is sulfate free! Maybe a family member can do it to save money!
