Treating Dandruff
What is Dandruff?

Over 20% of the global population are affected by this chronic, common problem. Dandruff is basically the skin of the scalp shedding the loose dead skin cells. For most people the lifecycle of a scalp cell is about a month, but for those that have skin cells that mature quickly, the lifecycle can sometimes be as short as 2 days. Dandruff is the loose dead skin cells that are often discarded in large visible clusters, which form the dandruff flakes. It can be a very unsightly and embarrassing affliction, although no physical discomfort is experienced. The pain comes from society’s view of Dandruff and the subsequent loss of self confidence can take a long time to recover from.

What Causes Dandruff?

It is thought that dandruff can be caused by a naturally occurring scalp fungus which feeds off the oily Sebum produced by the scalp glands. Some people are predisposed to suffer from dandruff for genetic reasons and if affects more men than women. Contributing factors to those predisposed to dandruff can be stress, scalp irritation from using products (hairspray, dyes etc) on your hair as well as humidity. There can also sometimes be an allergic reaction to certain kinds of foods that will exacerbate dandruff. Allergies to dairy, chocolate, nuts, shellfish or refined carbohydrates – white flour and sugar – can cause dandruff.

How do I cure my Dandruff?

It’s important to remember that as dandruff is a natural process, you cannot ‘cure’ it but rather, treat and control it. There are a number of ways of doing this, depending on the severity of the case. For mild cases – frequent shampooing with a mild shampoo and massaging the shampoo into the scalp to loosen the dead skin will usually show an almost instant marked improvement. If this doesn’t, then you can try the same procedure with an AntiDandruff Shampoo . There is an abundance of
AntiDandruff Shampoo and for stubborn cases you may need to go for an AntiDandruff Shampoo that contains tar, salicylic acid, zinc, pyrithione, selenium sulfide or ketoconazole. Avoid steroid based ones as this can lead to dependency.

For a more natural approach, to counteract inefficient metabolisation, include plenty of B vitamins (B6 especially) in your diet and take Evening Primrose Oil to boost your fatty acid levels. Increases in your Vitamin A and E and Silica intake as well as the application externally of tea tree oil can also help with the treatment. Ontop of this, avoid deep fried food and excessive spices, brush your hair regularly to improve circulation and exercise daily in the open air.
