Why You Get Dandruff Whenever You Do Protective Styles
• Trapped oil and scalp buildup: Protective styles like braids, twists, or locs can cause oil and product buildup on the scalp, leading to dandruff.
• Scalp irritation: Tight braids or styles that pull on the hair can cause scalp irritation, leading to dandruff.
• Fungal growth: Trapped moisture and warmth under the protective style can create an environment conducive to fungal growth, contributing to dandruff.
• Product sensitivity: Some hair products used in protective styles can irritate the scalp and cause dandruff.
To minimize dandruff in protective styles, maintain good scalp hygiene, use gentle products, and incorporate anti-dandruff treatments. Also, regularly removing and re-doing protective styles can help reduce buildup and irritation.
