Is dandruff getting the better of you? Don't let it rule your life – or ruin that hot date you've got lined up. Get rid of the flakes with these simple steps.

Take action:

For best results, shampoo daily, leaving the lather on for at least 10 minutes before rinsing. Massage your scalp vigorously as you shampoo – this helps to loosen flakes so that they can be rinsed away. Thorough rinsing is essential, since shampoo residue can aggravate skin problems. When the condition clears up, keep it in check by shampooing with medicated shampoo once or twice a week (these products are too harsh for daily use). Let your hair dry naturally instead of blow-drying it.
