If you want to improve the condition of your scalp, you must do lots of other things, often not connected with this body part. Turn to a healthy diet, complement meals with supplements, sleep minimum eight hours, exercise regularly, give up on alcohol, cigarettes and unhealthy food. Did you know that the same vitamins and micronutrients help to deal with stress and dandruff? Take vitamins A, B, E, calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus every day.
Wash hair every day if you have dandruff!

Visit a trichologist!
If dandruff persists, you must see a dermatologist or trichologist. The doctor will diagnose your problem and prescribe appropriate medication and products. You can ask for a fungal test to see the type of fungi that causes your dandruff. The results will allow for matching products that fight a given fungus or bacteria.
