How to Treat and Prevent Dandruff-Related Hair Loss
The key to treating and preventing hair loss due to dandruff lies in eliminating the itching and scratching so as to protect the hair follicles.
1. Medicated Shampoos

If your scalp is allergic to chemicals, use herbal shampoos that contain medicinal properties for dandruff and hair loss. Look for ingredients like:
- Aloe vera
- Rosemary oil
- Tea tree oil
- Lemon extracts
A dry scalp can be one of the causes of dandruff. Ingredients like salicylic acid in anti-dandruff shampoos can dry out your scalp. Massage your scalp using coconut oil to improve blood circulation to the scalp. Coconut oil has antifungal properties. Include a conditioner that suits your hair to add moisture.
3.NO Harsh Hair Care
Sulfates, preservatives, fragrances, and dyes in hair care products can irritate the scalp and cause contact dermatitis. Refrain from using harsh products and switch to gentle hair care.
4. Manage stress.
While stress does not directly cause dandruff, it does weaken the immune system and make the scalp more susceptible to fungus. Manage stress with yoga, meditation, or deep breathing exercises.
5. Home remedies
A. Tea Tree Oil
Mix a few drops of tea tree oil with a carrier oil like coconut oil and apply it to your scalp and hair. Tea tree oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties.
