How To Relieve dandruff When Wearing Braids 5 min read

Ahh…Dandruff. Such an itchy topic, pun intended. Our Anti-Dandruff range will solve all your problems and then some. Itchy scalp? Dandruff spray. Dehydrated? Dandruff spray. Bank account? Dandruff spray…Okay that’s just a joke but you get the drift. Dandruff is especially common when you have braids installed,whether free-flowing braids or cornrows. 


Dandruff is a condition that causes the skin on the scalp to flake. According to mayoclinic.org, dandruff is caused by the following:

  • Irritated, oily skin
  • Not shampooing enough
  • A yeastlike fungus (malassezia) that feeds on oils on the scalps of most adults
  • Dry skin
  • Sensitivity to hair care products (contact dermatitis)
  • Other skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema


When it comes to braids, dandruff may also be caused by the strain and tension put on the scalp by the braids. Not all heroes wear capes. Some are called ‘’TCB Anti-Dandruff Leave-In Spray’’ Our special anti-dandruff formula is the knight in shining armour that you need to soothe dandruff when you’re wearing braids. It helps fight dandruff, reduces flakes and relieves itchiness as well as sensitivity.

The main ingredients are Coconut Oil and Menthol. Coconut Oil helps in scalp moisturization which restores scalp health and reduces dryness and flaking caused by dandruff. Menthol helps in removing dandruff build-up and reduces scalp irritation & itching with its cool menthol sensation. This amazing ingredient combination fights dandruff by helping to reduce dryness and aiding in soothing the scalp.It’s like Batman and Robin! Plus its lightweight,liquid consistency ensures it penetrates into the deeper layers of the scalp,hydrating and healing along the way. 


We’ll cut to the chase and help you soothe your itchy scalp in 3 steps:

1.Cleanse hair and Scalp

The best way to start in the fight against dandruff is to cleanse your scalp. Since you’re wearing braids, it should be easy to cleanse the scalp. You can cleanse the scalp using shampoo then rinse. 


2.Spray Away

Spray the TCB Anti-Dandruff Leave-In Spray on your scalp, one section at a time. Spray it liberally! You should already start feeling the calming effects by now.



Using the tips of your fingers, massage the leave-in spray gently, to ensure it works its magic. Massage throughout the scalp, covering the whole area from nape to neck, ensuring to focus on the most itchy areas. If you feel like you need to add more spray, you can do so. 


So how often should you use this wonder spray? We recommend that you spray the treatment once a day for severe dandruff. If your dandruff is mild, use it every other day. You know what they say…TCB Dandruff Spray a day,keeps the doctor away. We’re just saying!
