Dandruff Info

“Confession is good for the soul only in the sense that a tweed coat is good for dandruff - it is a palliative rather than a remedy”

Peter DeVries

 

Dandruff is the shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp. Dandruff should not be confused with a simple dry scalp. 

As skin cells die a small amount of flaking is normal. Some people, however, experience an unusually large amount of flaking either chronically or as a result of certain triggers, which can also be accompanied by redness and irritation.

Dandruff is a common disorder of the scalp. After puberty, nearly half of the population will experience some form of it. It often causes itching. Cells in the scalp known as keratinocytes play a role in the expression and generation of immunological reactions during the formation of dandruff. The severity of dandruff fluctuates with seasons - it often gets worsen during the winter season. Most cases of dandruff can be treated with specialised shampoos. Unfortunately, there is no true cure.

There are natural health remedies that may benefit people with dandruff. Certain health products are specially designed to nourish the scalp skin and hair to reduce breakage and promote health. There are other natural health remedies available for this condition. Both coconut and Argan oil have been known to promote hair and scalp health. Rubbing olive oil into the scalp also appears to help alleviate the dandruff.

  • Totally 100% Impressed

    star

    With a lifetime of soft nails and delaminated (or peeling) thumb nails I have tried many applications to try and fix them. I stumbled across Thompson’s Skin, Hair and Nails while browsing Healthposts site one day and read the reviews. SO GLAD I took the leap of faith and ordered these tablets!
    With low expectations I was prepared to give it a go thinking it would take two bottles minimum to notice a bit of a result. How wrong was I ... half way through the first bottle I noticed a significant difference.... split nails are no longer.. I have much stronger nails with length I haven’t been able to achieve without Shellac’s previously.
    I am not a serial reviewer but this product has made such a difference to my nails that I thought it important to share.... it has 100% worked for me - one tablet morning and night. I’m super impressed with the results in such a relatively short time ... I started with the smaller bottle but have just ordered the large bottle as it is better value. Delivery was super quick and Healthpost is a site I constantly recommend to family and friends

  • Didn't work for me

    star

    I have tried both this conditioner and the shampoo, yes very watery and hard to control the application, it didn't help my itchy scalp and made my hair dry like straw. Might work for some people but didn't work for me.
