How to Treat Beard Dandruff

Written By Admin on Thursday, March 28, 2013 | 12:07 PM

Beard dandruff can be a nasty problem, especially as it becomes visible on your beard, so it can be quite embarrassing in any social situation. It usually shows up as small flakes beard hair, and if it goes out of control, you may have a serious dandruff problem. If it becomes more intense, it can start irritating the scalp.
While it is not clear yet what exactly causes dandruff on beard, several factors that might start triggering it are already identified by researchers. As you might guess dry skin is one of them and the others are bacteria, fungus, active ingredients found in hair treatments and colorings. Hormonal imbalances caused by stress can also aid to increase dandruff build-up.
Dandruff can be very inconvenient, especially if visible on the beard. If unattended, it can cause itchiness around the chin, cheeks, and on the earsides. It can be a real torture if it dwells on any facial hair areas.
On the bright side, there have been a lot of effective shampoo remedies available on the market used to fight bear dandruff or dandruff in general. Whether they are active ingredient anti-dandruff shampoos or basic home remedy products, they are in both effective at eliminating dandruff. Let me share some of the most effective remedies:
Anti-dandruff shampoos and active ingredients:
Head & Shoulders Intensive Care, St. Ives Apricot Scrub, Selenium Sulfide solution, Hydrocortisone, Sunsel Blue, Nizoral, and Neutrogena T/Gel.
Natural & Herbal home remedies:
Tea Tree Oil, Apple Cider Vinegar, Rosemary, Moroccan oil, Vitamin E Skin moisturizer, Baby oil, Aloe Vera extracts, Baby shampoos, and olive oil.
To get rid of beard dandruff and prevent it from causing irritations and embarrassments, you can apply these simple techniques that will keep you having a well-groomed dandruff-free beard.
  • Apply baby shampoo on your beard after shower to avoid soap excess from forming into dandruff
  • Apply Hydrocortisone cream on possible infected areas in red spot visibilities twice every day
  • If your skin is not sensitive to active ingredients use Head and shoulders shampoo to counter act dandruff
  • Put on facial soaps with tea tree oil ingredient on a daily basis
  • Groom your hair all the time, especially after shower
  • Apply vitamin E lotion on dry skin areas close to the beard to prevent dry skin from spreading
Beard dandruff acts almost the same way as a normal hair dandruff. Flaking and irritating itch may either be caused by fungal infection, dry skin, hormones, or skin sensitivity to active solutions. If proper grooming and treatments are applied, you can save yourself from spending on expensive dandruff medicated treatments to avoid severe infection and embarrassments.
