Dandruff, whether dry or greasy, is never a welcome sight and doesn’t say much about the condition of your scalp. So don't let dandruff get the better of you. Especially since it's so easy to get rid of nowadays. Simply follow our tips from the pros.
There are two types of dandruff: dry dandruff, which tends to fall out, and greasy dandruff, which stays stuck in your hair. But the phenomenon is the same for both types. "If you have dandruff, this means that your skin is regenerating itself more quickly than usual. Therefore your scalp rids itself of the excess skin, which results in a build-up...”
Dandruff is related to our skin and not to our hair, as many people think. It has nothing to do with our hair type. "But dandruff does affect our hair. As it builds up, it prevents sebum from being evenly distributed throughout our hair, eventually leaving it looking dull." In extreme cases, dandruff can cause hair to fall out, especially greasy dandruff. Get the situation under control ASAP to stop the situation from worsening.
The appearance of dandruff is often a sign of internal problems. Fatigue, stress or an unbalanced diet can all be causes. It can also be down to the use of the wrong products. "If you don't use the right shampoo for your hair type, this can also cause imbalance."
To get rid of dandruff, the first thing to do is stop washing your hair every day. "Washing your hair too much irritates your hair and only speeds up the phenomenon. Stick to washing it no more than twice a week." Then, once you know which type of dandruff you're dealing with, only use anti-dandruff shampoo. Apply to wet hair, massage in gently and leave in. This should sort everything out! You can also buy some really effective lotions which you apply to the scalp, without rubbing, and leave to soak in for a few minutes." If after these treatments the problem persists, see your dermatologist.
: to make sure you pick out the most effective products, go straight to your pharmacy. But this might not be necessary. Remember that the anti-dandruff products sold in your hair salon are also very effective, sometimes even better. Just make sure you use the products that are specifically for men or specifically for women.
