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.

Product Reviews

  • Works well on the scalp

    star

    I tried using this shampoo on my long thick hair and found that while it worked wonderfully on my scalp it left my hair still a bit greasy and not clean feeling. I then used another shampoo to clean my hair and followed with a second wash using Hopes Relief and I find I have found the perfect balance.......I no longer have a dry scalp, my hair is clean and shiny and I find this product actually works well as a conditioner
