How to Get Rid of Dandruff – Quickly & Reliably With Proven Solutions

Welcome back to The Gentleman’s Gazette! In
today’s video, we talk about how to get rid of dandruff. First of all, I discuss what
it is, what causes it and most importantly, how you can treat it. So, what is dandruff? It technically is the shedding
of the skin as it dies from your scalp. Dandruff can cause redness, irritation and itching
on your scalp and it looks very unfavorable. Sometimes, it can even make people self-conscious
especially if you wear a nice, dark suit because it really highlights the white dandruff. So
what exactly causes dandruff in the first place? It could be things like psoriasis,
eczema, sensitive skin, dry skin, a fungus or maybe, you wash your hair too often or
maybe not enough. Fortunately, most of the time, these things are treatable with over
the counter drugstore products. Now, I’m not an M.D. and I’m not going to tell you exactly
what you can do, it’s just experience that I’ve had, that I want to pass on so you can
get rid of your dandruff. When in doubt, always consult your dermatologist. Especially, if
you have conditions like eczema or psoriasis. So, how can you tell if you have dandruff?
First of all, it’s very easy because you see white skin flakes. Sometimes, it can also
be your product. For example. if you have a gel, they like to flake a lot and it may
look like dandruff but it’s a little more translucent and it’s usually water soluble.
On the other hand, it’s very difficult to get rid of dandruff because there are little
flakes and it’s best to have someone look at your scalp and see whether it’s dry skin
or just hair product. Dandruff starts at the hair root and you can see it throughout the
hair, but it’s a very good indicator and if you have something at your hair root that’s
loose skin, it’s dandruff. If you use a product like minoxidil against hair loss, that can
be the cause of dandruff as well so take a look at the products you take and see if that
could have an effect on your dandruff. How to get rid of dandruff? Honestly, it really
depends. Personally, I’ve had dandruff in the past. It’s not a big deal but it’s important
to understand that a different cause requires a different treatment. In the beginning, you
don’t know what that cause is so you just start with one product and one active ingredient
against dandruff. Then, you take the shampoo and you use it for three weeks every single
day, once a day. If you can see no improvements, switch to the next product with a different
active ingredient. Now, simply repeat the process as needed until you get rid of it.
In my experience, it usually takes about 2 or 3 different products but you know, maybe
for you, you have to take 5 or 6 different ones and that’s a time span of 12 to 15 weeks
but eventually, you will get rid of it. Once you determine what works for you, it pays
to always have a bottle on hand and to use it regularly, especially if you see that it
comes back, make sure you use it. Some people also use an anti-dandruff shampoo continuously
just to make sure it never resurfaces. What you do is really up to you and you have to
figure out what works and what doesn’t. In terms of active ingredients, there’s really
a bunch of different ones on the market. Active ingredients against dandruff include Ketoconazole,
selenium disulfide, cold tar, egg oil, tea tree oil or even apple cider vinegar. Now
let’s focus on some that I know work. The most popular is Head and Shoulders and it
uses pyrithione zinc as an active ingredient so I can only see good things about it. Obviously,
it doesn’t have the most high-end ingredients and so there are many other options. Another
option is Nizoral. It’s active ingredient is Ketoconazole and it’s particularly good
if you have dry scalp skin or a fungus because it kills bacteria and it really actively fights
dandruff. If you really have persistent dandruff, you may want to try cold tar product such
as the one from Neutrogena, t-gel. I must warn you, it really smells bad, it slows down
renewal of the skin cells which you can actively help to prevent dandruff. If you want something
that smells good and is more natural, try a shampoo with tea tree oil, I used the one
from Pete and Pedro and when you smell it, it’s just really pleasant. Tea tree oil works
best for medium to light dandruff, it’s a natural product, it’s also used for acne and
other things that are related to skin care so it’s a very mild and healthy product. If
you suffer from very light dandruff that is caused by dry skin, I suggest you try the
Aveda shampoo because it moisturizes your skin and helps your hair follicles to grow
and it keeps dandruff at bay. For a more comprehensive list on anti-dandruff
shampoos, please check out our in depth guide on our website, here. So what if you have
dandruff? Here are a few tips to keep in mind. You got to be patient, it’s not going to go
overnight but if you consistently use a shampoo and try the routine, it’ll vanish, I promise.
Also, avoid scratching your scalp because it just makes it worse and you can see it
all over. When I have dandruff, I try to avoid dark jackets because you could very easily
see the dandruff. Also, I would suggest, getting a clothes brish where you can always get rid
of everything before you go out so, you get confident and not self-conscious. Now, go

    I was watching the news the other day and I noticed something interesting. Chris Wallace was interviewing President Obama, and Mr. Wallace wore black penny loafers to the interview. He is not a poorly dressed man by and importantly he wore dress socks with the loafers. I also remembered the time that Prince William wore brogues shoes with a tuxedo. It seems that the standards for formal shoes are changing. Who knows, maybe soon we can wear loafers with a tuxedo? But I won't be the first to try.

    You shouldnt use your dandruff shampoo every day. It depends on the shampoo type. Most anti-dandruff shampoos, which contains the active ingredient, Ketoconazole, should be used twice a week.

    just wondering Sven, do you have any videos that you've done on the art of single edge wet shaving? thanx!

    Your color coordination is especially successful this time! The tie itself is a cocky, no-fucks-given choice but the colorful shirt harmonises the effect, making it actually a subtler choice than white. Very suitable for springtime!
