Those who especially have to travel and gather dust from travel have to be careful to avoid sticky oil and should wash hair extra times than normal people.

    The hair and scalp should not be too dry nor too wet and moist. Coconut oil is better than gingerly oil or other sticky oils. The proper way is not to apply hair after bah, but applying and massaging oil to the scalp before bath and then washing with mild shampoo or green gram flour. One can use instant shampoo by crushing hibiscus leaves with adding little water on a stone oven mixie. The viscous paste can be applied on head as shampoo and washed off. A few drops of lemon juice can be added in the water used for bathing.That can prevent bad odour also if used regularly.

    Hair should be combed morning and evening at least, with a clean comb. The comb should be cleaned well with soap after combing.While combing one should use a plain white cloth so that the dandruff flakes fall on the cloth only and remove them washing under tap. If the dandruff complaint is high, then it is better to avoid dandruff falling on other parts especially the eye brows etc. The pillows and bed sheets also should be cleaned and washed regularly.
