Hello Rosemary, Bye Bye Dandruff

Jan 30, 12 Hello Rosemary, Bye Bye Dandruff

Everybody loves big, white flakes in the midst of winter; just not falling from your hair all over your black, cashmere sweater on a hot date or at a meeting with your most important client. You didn’t notice, but they sure did. It’s like, “Look at me! Look at me!” for all the wrong reasons. Ay, Dios mio! Might as well sink into the ground, chica.

Most of us Latinas have dark hair, so dandruff is super noticeable. So embarrassing! And as winter progresses, the harsh cold and elements seem to exacerbate your issue. You could resort to the typical anti-dandruff shampoos but the problem with them is that they are very abrasive and don’t necessarily produce great results – often they just make your head itchier and flakier creating an unending, vicious cycle.

If you want a gentle and effective solution the answer is rosemary. No, not your Tia Rosemary, rosemary the herb. Its  anti-fungal properties work wonders on dandruff, killing the yeast and calming your burning scalp. There are many natural rosemary-infused shampoos you can buy (Avalon Organics and John Masters Organics both make great ones) or you can simply add about 20 drops of rosemary oil to your own shampoo. This marvelous herb also stimulates follicles, which can help increase hair growth and strength. Now you can focus on being your fabulous Latina self with your hombre instead of creating a wintery wonderland, on your shoulders.

    First of all, using one shampoo for a long peirod of time can be very damaging to your hair. It’s a good idea to switch it up every once in a while, so maybe just give Suave a try for a week or two and see if you like it! I think Suave is good for many reasons, including the fact that it is pretty good quality for a really good price. I really like the naturals line, so give it a try and see if it’s what you hoped! Another word of advice I would give you is to cut off an inch or two and get rid of the dead ends. I recently did that and it has made a huge difference with my hair. Good luck, hope your hair looks better than ever!
