Dandruff is going to be annoying. You’re not alone though. 50% of people have had some kind of dandruff at some point. Managing flakes is going to take some time. So while we’re waiting on a solution. Let’s talk about how to hide dandruff flakes fast.

These are going to be a few quick solutions we can tackle either the day of or the day after to hide this embarrasing condition.

Why hide them and not just fix the problem? Because it takes time to eliminate dandruff. The purpose of this guide is just to get us through the day while we work on taking care of the route of the problem. Because getting rid of those flakes can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

The best ways to hide dandruff are:

  • Hats
  • Light-colored clothing
  • Cover it with your hairstyle
  • Lint roller
  • Dye your hair (Be careful with this)
  • Brushing


Please note that hats can be a double-edged sword. If you have dry skin and flakes they can be a perfect fix to get through the day. But, if you have dandruff, the more mild form of seborrheic dermatitis, it can make things worse. Dry skin and dandruff are different!

Hats are perfect for hiding hair issues but, also create a warm, humid environment for Malassezia (the fungus responsible for flakes if you have seborrheic dermatitis) to thrive in.

Light-colored clothes

Light colored clothing is an easy fix. Pretty self explanatory as well. Just so we don’t have any residue on our shoulders.

Hair style

Another way to hide dandruff is to cover more of your scalp with your hair style. This is more difficult for guys to pull off when you have shorter hair.

Lint roller

A lint roller basically will just take care of any flakes you see on your clothes. It might be helpful to keep a small one with you in the car so you can pop in and take care of it quickly.

Hair dye

You could also dye your hair a lighter color if you have a kit available to you.

Be careful with hair dyes though!

Hair dye is very irritating to your scalp. Dying your hair may be a good way to hide dandruff in the short term But, It will most likely make your skin even worse.


Combing your hair can also be a double edged sword just like hats. On one hand you can comb the flakes out of your hair with a brush or a fine tooth comb. But, if you scratch your scalp with a brush you can introduce even more flakes into your hair.
