Health, according to the World Health Organization, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.[1] A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep,[2] and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress.

The winter season brings on dandruff troubles apart from other hair woes, isn’t it? Try these Ayurveda remedies to deal with it.

Dealing with dandruff is no mean task in winter season. Among the array of skin conditions that exacerbate in winter season, dandruff is certainly one of them. It most of the times leads to itchy scalp with tiny white flakes of skin finding their place on your clothing. The winter air could dry out your scalp and can lead to flaking. A fungus called malassezia may contribute to your dandruff woes. Seborrheic dermatitis or seborrhea is another common cause of dandruff.

While there are a variety of products available that promise to take care of your dandruff issues, including anti-dandruff shampoos, we all know they don’t always do the trick. No wonder, many people trust natural remedies to deal with their dandruff issues as they have hardly any side-effects.
