Have you ever went to a hair salon and the hairstylist starts combing your hair and all your dandruff comes out? When she gathers all of your dandruff in one place, it looks like a pile of cocaine.

If you do have dandruff, you are not alone. You might be wondering why you still have dandruff when you already used dandruff shampoo. There are other reasons why you still have dandruff and no — it’s not because you have dryness.

According to EverydayHealth, dandruff is not caused by dryness. It’s because you have too much oiliness in your scalp. Other reasons besides that could be emotional stress, infrequent hair washing, unhealthy diet or overuse of hair products.

Nowadays, we try to maintain our hair by ourselves with the lack of knowledge on how we should really take care of our hair. From highlights to chemical perms to blow drying to hair strengthening and the list goes on. Sometimes what is good for your hair does not necessarily mean it is good for your hair.

Having an unhealthy scalp can affect the quality of new hairs growing on your head. Most of the times, it will lead to shedding, hair breakage and even chronic scalp irritation due to under washing and overuse of hair styling products. It’s time to ditch certain habits and taking on a new certain routine that can help you grow and maintain your hair full, shiny, strong and healthy. One important way you can do that is by giving yourself a hair detox.

When you detox your scalp, you can remove dandruff and stimulate hair growth. Here are four simple ways to help you do a simple and stress-free hair regimen.
