Dealing With Dandruff

Dandruff can be treated with special shampoo.
Dealing with Dandruff

If you've ever wondered what all that white stuff coming off your head is, we'll give you a hint - it's not a major weather system, it's just dandruff. Get the 411 on this scalp condition that is totally treatable!

What Is It?

Dandruff is a mix of dead skin cells, dirt, and oil. At the base of each hair on your head, you have glands which release oil. Sometimes they release too much. It mixes with the dead skin on your head and the dirt in the air. Eventually this mix breaks off in white clumps and falls off your head in white flakes. That's kinda gross - especially when everytime you shake your head, your friends think they're at a Colorado Ski Resort.

How to Treat It

A little dandruff is pretty normal for everyone. You can get rid of it by just brushing it off or washing your hair more often. If that doesn't work, there are special shampoos you can get as well, like Head & Shoulders. And if that still doesn't do the trick, just shave your head! Yeah, that's it - go bald. Aliens go bald and so do tons of basketball players - so why not try it too? Or if it gets really bad, you could just shake it all off, then have dandruff ball fights with your friends.

Last Resort

If your dandruff problem actually gets to the point where you can go snowboarding in your flakes, go see your doctor. Just remember, every one gets a little dandruff, so you shouldn't stress too much.

Well, my advice is to talk to her about it. Tell her how you feel about the matter. If she does not want to stop bullying the other girls that you are friends with, break off the friendship. I hope this helped with your problem!

Well, I hope you're not friends with her whilst she's doing that.  You should confront her about it, tell her how's she's been acting and how you hate it. If it comes down to it tell an adult or someone you trust and see if they can help you. If it never gets better you should try moving on and ignoring her. It's not the best advice, but there's not a lot you can do.

Tbh, if she says they're too short or too tight, she's probably not going to change her mind on that. However, there are tonnes of clothes out there that are really cute without being tight or short. Like jumpers, for one. If you really do need new clothes, you should try and persuade her by telling her about your old clothes, like if they don't fit any more or if you don't have many left. Start small though, just by asking for new clothes that aren't too tight (there are loads of T-shirts and stuff out there) and slowly ask for bigger things like tighter clothes or jewellery.  Though some parents just don't like their kids wearing things like make-up or clothes that are too short, because they often feel the kid is too young to be wearing things that show a lot (which some kids often are). And, I don't think you can change their minds about that, as cool as it would seem.
