According to Dr. Jaliman, “a healthy scalp is normally flake free.” That said, flakes don’t necessarily mean dandruff. “It could be an indication that the scalp is very dry or irritated,” Dr. Jaliman explains. In addition, Dr. Jaliman recommends taking a closer look at your scalp’s sebum—aka, oil—production, too. A scalp that “does not look oily” is what you’re looking for.
Secondly, to maintain a healthy scalp first you need to protect your scalp with all kinds of chemical treatments be it hair dye or products containing sulphate in them. All of these things are harmful for your scalp and ofcourse for your hair.
Dr. Jaliman says to “avoid sulfates in hair products as they can dry the skin.” In addition, Dr. Jaliman warns against dying your hair frequently, “especially if the dye has bleach,” as dye and bleach “can irritate your scalp.”
