DIY Anti-Dandruff Scalp Toner
Clearing common dandruff is easy. Using an anti-itching, anti-flaking shampoo and scalp toner can do wonders and will clear dandruff in most people. Philip Kingsley makes two anti-dandruff products, Flaky/Itchy Shampoo and Flaky/Itchy Scalp Toner, which are both award winning and have received amazing reviews. They contain the ingredient ‘piroctone olamine’ – an anti-microbial that effectively and rapidly clears the appearance and uncomfortable symptoms of dandruff.
While you can’t make your own flaky/itchy shampoo at home, you can easily whip up your own anti-dandruff toner if you feel like it (or have run out of your PK toner!)
DIY ANTI-DANDRUFF TONER:
Shake together a mouthwash of your choice with an equal quantity of witch hazel. After rinsing off your shampoo and conditioner and towel drying your hair, sprinkle some of the mixture all over your scalp in partings. Rub in lightly with your fingertips and leave it on. You can then style your hair as usual – contrary to popular belief, styling aids and blow-dryers do not cause dandruff!
If the use of an anti-dandruff shampoo and toner don’t clear your dandruff, you may have one of the more serious forms of flaking and should see a trichologist.
