Moderating your exposure to the sun is one way to keep your skin healthy. Remember, dandruff is a skin disorder, not a hair disorder. If you find yourself in a situation where being outdoors is unavoidable, consider wearing a hat. If this is fashionably unacceptable, there are a number of sunscreens that are designed to be worked into the scalp.
Blow-drying your hair can dry out the scalp and cause dandruff. If you have short hair, it’s best to “pat dry” with a towel. Avoid rubbing or blow-drying as much as possible. If you have longer hair and must use a blow-dryer, use the cool setting and keep the dryer at least 10 inches away from your hair. This may take a little more time, but the results will be worth the wait!
