Today we’re going to talk about how to get rid of dandruff.

Even though common dandruff treatments may look healthy because they contain zinc or selenium, they still come with potential side effects. So, it’s important to consider natural alternatives.

There is a high association between dandruff and insulin resistance. When a person has insulin resistance, they have high levels of insulin, which can increase androgens. Increased androgens can lead to dandruff.

The best ways to get rid of dandruff:
• Get on the ketogenic diet
• Do intermittent fasting

    Something worked for me :

    Wash your hair with cold water !!! Basically take a cold shower 🚿 .
    Not very cold as you don’t wanna get a headache from icy cold water . But just cold water.

    It’s much better than hot water for your hair.

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on May 5, 2023 at 10:59 am

      That’s nice. Thanks for sharing this tip.

    • peter crane on May 5, 2023 at 2:47 pm

      and bicarbonate of soda as a shampoo is excellent for removing dandruff!!!

    • TatTvaum on May 5, 2023 at 4:46 pm

      @peter crane Bad idea. Disrupts the pH of the scalp.

    • noa on May 5, 2023 at 6:26 pm

      ​@TatTvaum thats why you rinse off any product on your scalp though! as long as you rinse, the ph won’t be disturbed a gigantic amount

      Where a health condition is considered to be passed down a family tree, very often it is in fact due to shared lifestyle choices like the same type of diet that has been passed on rather than through one’s genes. Sorry for your loss.

    • القناص El Francoterador on May 5, 2023 at 11:44 am

      @Spam Mouse thanks alot for your concern… god bless him 💔😥

    • Genieve Jackson on May 5, 2023 at 1:08 pm

      Thanks for information. Can you do presentation on insomnia?

  4. Milen Kostadinov on May 5, 2023 at 10:23 am

    Ive struggled all my life with it. What made it dissapear was cold showers and working out

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on May 5, 2023 at 10:53 am

      That’s great. Thanks for sharing what helped you.

  5. Chomp Normski on May 5, 2023 at 10:42 am

    I find it utterly disgusting that the treatments for ailments in the medical community all are based on addressing the symptoms and not the causes. High praise for Doctor Berg for teaching us that fact.

    • Matic on May 5, 2023 at 12:03 pm

      All for the $

    • Dalo Bucaram on May 5, 2023 at 1:26 pm

    Thank you so much Doctor Berg. Your daily information is always great, variety and useful ❤

  7. TheJacknife on May 5, 2023 at 10:48 am

    Using a scalp brush while showering significantly helps clean my scalp and prevents dandruff for up to a week.

      ​@Mihir Alate i thought fast food lead to male pattern baldness. 🤷

    • Federica Rossi on May 5, 2023 at 4:16 pm

      I think insulin resistance is a relevant cause of dandruff, I get rid of dandruff with zinc selenium vit d and c and eliminating carbo

  12. Sander van Minnen on May 5, 2023 at 11:58 am

    Hiya Dr Berg! Thank you for all the amazing advice! I want to know, what isyour opinion regarding green sour / raw unripe mango? I found that it contains a lot of good nutrients and almost no fructose, is it OK to eat on a ketogenic diet? And also I usually eat them with skin, as I live in Thailand and over 80 percent of all fruits and vegs here in the North of the country are inherently grown organic and non-GMO (This is heavily promoted and even expected from farmers by the Thai princess!). Thanks in advance for your expert advice. Sander

    Been on keto IF for about 6 months. Pre diabetic before. Couldn’t go below 100 blood glucose without feeling extremely hypoglycemic, sweating, shaking, feeling extremely weak. A1c checked 2 days ago and it’s 3.9 now. 65 average glucose. Skin tags dried up fell off. Toenail fungus almost completely gone and I’m using nothing on them(I’ve tried everything on them nothing worked, had it for decades). Sub Dermatitis gone.

    • Amelia Byrne on May 5, 2023 at 12:37 pm

      That’s amazing Brad wow 😁👍

    • Brad Massey on May 5, 2023 at 1:02 pm

      @Amelia Byrne thank you 😊 🙏

  14. Luke on May 5, 2023 at 12:26 pm

    I had really bad dandruff and I also would get painful and itchy bumps on my head. Tried all sorts of shampoos. Then I happened to stumble on my fix by accident. I ran out of bread. I was a big sandwich guy. I ate a lot of them. It was a couple of days before I had a chance to stop by the store and grab a few loads. I had noticed that my dandruff problem had gotten noticably better. I reflected on what had changed over the couple of days. The only thing out of my routine was a lack of bread in my diet. So I went ahead and ate some bread. Sure enough the dandruff and bumps came back. Stopped eating bread and it all cleared up in a matter of days. So bread is something I no longer eat. I might have a bagel every once in a great while. But other than that I have greatly reduced the amount of wheat in my diet which has also seemed to help.

  15. Da-King on May 5, 2023 at 12:32 pm

    I also noticed that after stopping dairy and sugar products , my skin improved tremendously. The key is indeed insulin resistance. Add workout and your skin will thank you !

  16. Hala Havez on May 5, 2023 at 12:51 pm

    I think because I followed Dr Berg on Keto for years and cut off sugar from my daily intake, I avoided having PCOS with a miracle, unlike the rest of my female relatives, and therefore the impact of all these symptoms were lighter and never suffred from a serious case of dandruff, yet in general: I think sugary things tend to dry off the skin and increase the activities of pathogens in our bodies. Thanks always for the knowledge Dr Berg.

    • Sabrina and husband on May 5, 2023 at 12:52 pm

      Same here.

  17. bolt on May 5, 2023 at 1:03 pm

    Thank you Dr. Berg.
    You’ve helped me to feel so much better.
    God bless you!

  18. ValMarx on May 5, 2023 at 1:26 pm

    Literally everywhere I go I see people struggle for months, especially post Winter with Dandruff or Dermatitis
    and the age is not fixed, i see many in 20s and many in 30s or 40s.
    I’m age 30, dandruff on hair which I NEVER had before this winter, and Dermatitis on lower areas.
    NO gluten, fasting 15-18hours per day (dont eat after 18:30 PM and no mornings).
    I barely eat any complex carbs.
    People really need to start asking and question what is happening with and in the air we breath or water we drink.

    • Mithi Das on May 5, 2023 at 3:39 pm

      Dandruff or Seborrheic Dermatitis is a kind of Eczema and has a chronic course with remissions and relapses.Root cause is Insulin Resistance which needs to be corrected by dietary modification and Intermittent Fasting.Supportive treatment by Ketoconazole shampoo and others are also needed.Avoid simple carbs (wheat,rice,sugar etc) and add complex carbs (broccoli , carrots etc) to your diet.Don’t get frustrated.Treatment of chronic diseases deserves patience.Blessed be.

  19. Servantof God on May 5, 2023 at 2:09 pm

    I definitely remember having a little bit of a problem with dandruff , but that was when i was consuming mountains of sugary drinks daily and tons of junk food . It wasnt bad but i could see that my scalp was dry and would drop flakes when i scratch

  20. Alaïa on May 5, 2023 at 2:34 pm

    I have seboric dermatitis and after only 3 weeks on keto and IF, it’s almost gone. This stuff WORKS.
