My Natural Hair Is Always Dry And Full Of Dandruff?


Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author
of the book is the natural hair Bible and founder of howtoblackhair.com and for these
videos I like to answer the questions you all send me via email so any of you have any
questions you would like for me to answer be sure to check out the description box below
for additional information so I got to get right on into the video in this video is a
response to an email I received from Naya, Naya emailed me because she said is really
struggling with her natural hair because she’s suffering from dry hair and dandruff so I’m
sorry to hear that and I am but I’m extremely glad that you emailed me because I’m going
to help you I’m going to give you a lot of tips and tricks and a lot of advice on how
to stop your hair from being dry and how to solve your dandruff issues so you can be on
track for having healthy natural hair so the first thing I’m going to stay is that you
should probably make sure that you have thoroughly implemented a hair regimen or you need to
alter some things in your hair regimen I don’t know if you already have a schedule or a set
way of how you handle your hair I don’t know how often you shampoo your hair or condition
your hair or if you apply any other type of products to your hair and I’m not sure whether
not even if your products are of quality so what I’m first going to mention is that I
want you to make sure that your gauging what your hair needs are for some women it’s better
for them to shampoo wash their hair twice a month which is once every two weeks and
then co wash once a week for others it’s better for them to shampoo wash once a week and co
wash a couple of times a week and this fluctuates depending on how often your shedding your
dead skin and over time shed skin that is not being watched from your hair is what dandruff
is dandruff is a buildup of dead skin cells makes a lot of oils and things that’s why
sometimes it would even look a little bit slightly a yellow tone or even feel sticky
because it’s just a combination of dead skin and oils that are naturally secreted from
the scalp so in order to stop the engine from happening you most likely you have to wash
her hair little bit more frequently that doesn’t mean you have to shampoo wash her hair more
if you already do what you need to make sure your cleansing hair so co washing is a great
thing you can do to stop your hair from having so much dandruff I’ve done a video extensively
on a different natural hair terminology that you may not have known so make sure to search
this channel for additional videos you have more questions but cowashing is the process
of just watching your hair with conditioner so that way if you do have a very strong shampoo
it’s not a stripping on your hair my second thing is that I want you to make sure that
you have quality products now me personally I never like to mention a specific brand of
hair product that you should use and the number one reason why is because at any point in
time someone’s formula could change whether they just upgrade the way that they’re making
a product or they decide to implement some new ingredients in our product if you don’t
know what to look for your products you going to have a hard time picking something that
could work a lot of times I would see a lot of our natural women get very disappointed
in different brands specifically because they will change their formula so one conditioner
they used to always use will be slightly different and its not really working for the hair like
it used to now in most cases things like this don’t normally happen but this is a factor
when you are using products so that’s why I want you to make sure that you know what
you’re looking for and you know what kind of things are kind of ingredients you need
that will work best for your specific hair which leads me to my next tip and in all cases
when there’s questions like these when I come across a question like yours that’s about
not knowing how to combat dandruff or not knowing how to fight against dry hair normally
has a lot to do with things that you may be doing to your hair you’re not conscious of
for some things that you may not have never thought that you needed to start doing with
your hair and is the sole reason why I wrote my book I wrote my book the natural hair Bible
to help you to understand not only how to go natural but also how to find products according
to the ingredients I have extensive graphs and extensive charts that I have written out
and shown you which products to not which products but what ingredients to look for
in a product and then when you see those trigger ingredients or those things that are not ever
good for your hair to not even buy that product so instead of jsut suggestin to you all use
such and such cleanser to cleanse your dandruff or use this to wash her hair is not one size
fits all every head of hair is different so you know what oils work best for your hair
or if glycerin works best for your hair or how often it’s better for you to make sure
to remoisturize your hair with water all those are factors into you learning how to do with
your hair and what your hair needs are and I’m here to help you in every way that I can
and that’s why with your type of question in different questions that are similar to
these always suggest that you make sure to learn the basics because if you understand
the basics of taking care of your hair you will not have problems with dandruff and dry
hair because you will know it was going on and exactly what to do to have your hair in
any situation so if you have not checked out my book make sure to check it out check out
the description box for any additional links on anything that I may have mentioned in this
video they can also help you as well so be sure to keep in mind that we you are combating
dandruff and dry hair that you first have to do is learn the basic needs of black hair
so that way you’re not avoiding the issues that are very common which are easily fixable
and that you implement a regimen that works to keep your hair moisturized and balanced

    what about if you are someone who has seborric dermititis? my skin and scalp can get very scaly and itchy. Do you have any advice on a regimen or a product to use? 

  • Bettie Descartes says:

    You re so good Breanna. I love your videos. May as suggest that they use a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water to rinse the hair with each wash and co-wash as well as using tea tree oil on the scalp in between wash and co wash. Also, do not share comb and brush with people that have dandruff, so my grandma used to say…

    hi breanna,
    i recently found your videos. I find them really useful. i wanted to ask do you have make up tutorial? has your face always looks flawless. if not can you do one please. 

  • T.oliver says:

    I love one of the first points made about needing to wash hair more. You were right on! I have a few family members whose hair has that sticky feeling to it after a few days and it just has to be cleansed at least weekly if not more. You also can't solve that type of dandruff by just putting product and grease on the scalp. That goes against everything we are told about black hair but its best if we learn our individual circumstance and tailor our regimen to that.

  • Johnsonmom33 says:

    My daughter has been having this problem, this video was very helpful.  Thanks.  I think I need to wash her hair more often.  I have two girls so I try alternating doing their hair for my sanity.  But I guess I have to learn more patients and do their hair plus my hair every week.  🙁
