When it comes to hair, there are many problems that people have to deal with; it can become too greasy, too dry, too thin, too thick, too curly, and the list goes on. But one of the most significant that people face is the buildup of dandruff.
According to Medicalnewsdaily.com, dandruff is “a condition of the scalp that causes white flakes of skin to appear and is often accompanied by itching.” Dread Head HQ states that “the most likely cause of dandruff buildup, is washing the hair too infrequently, but there are other sites which claim that while it is an important factor, it is not so much how often it is washed, but how the hair is washed.
Getting rid of dandruff can be a task, even for "normal hair" and there are many ways that a person can have it removed, the most common of which is washing while combing it out. Depending on how much buildup there is, it can take multiple washes to remove the dandruff completely. But if you’re one of the many people who have dreadlocks, that’s not an option that you have. So how? How does someone with dreadlocks remove or treat dandruff?
Dreadlocks have been around for thousands of years, and as more time goes by, they are becoming increasingly popular. The versatile and relatively low maintenance style has been gaining mainstream acceptance, and many more celebrities, even those of non-African descent can be seen sporting the hairstyle. Like many other hairstyles, this one has its drawbacks, among them are the are the tension placed on the scalp and keeping them clean.
