Dandruff is not a new problem. Even the ancient Egyptians had it! It’s not uncommon either. Almost half the adult population of this country suffer from it at some time in their lives. Sadly, no real cure has yet been found for it. If you are a sufferer, the best you can hope for is to control it. – We have a guaranteed answer!
Normally, your skin is constantly shedding its top layer without you noticing. In the case of dandruff, the shedding process is accelerated up and the flakes of skin are larger and therefore more noticeable. As yet, it’s not fully known why this happens. The most widely accepted opinion is that it’s due to micro-organism activity on the scalp and it’s sometimes associated with tension or an emotional upset.
Although dandruff can sometimes be kept at bay by normal brushing and washing with the right medicated shampoos, this is often only a very temporary measure. What the problem really needs is a Shampoo which rids the scalp of the existing dandruff and helps to prevent the growth of the micro-organisms. It’s preferable to do this without the unpleasant odour or colour of some of the prescription type products.
We find that the most effective products for doing the job are those that contain ZINC PYRITHIONE, such as the Mizani Scalp Care System which combining potent salicylic acid with powerful pyrithione zinc (ZPT), two clinically effective active ingredients proven to eliminate the recurrence of scalp flaking, scaling, and itching.
Matrix Biolage Scalptherapie Anti dandruff shampoo is a professional formula containing Pyrithione Zinc and Bio Cushion Complex that cleanses and removes pollutants, helping to alleviate the symptoms of dandruff.
Some brands on the market appear to clear dandruff – but can also damage your hair!. Remember, always follow the instructions carefully. If one particular brand really doesn’t work, try another until you’ve found one that suits you.
Always keep your brushes and combs clean as it’s quite easy to re-infect the scalp. Also watch out for allergies. Some types of anti-dandruff shampoos can cause a reaction – if in doubt or worried in any way, stop using the product immediately and consult your doctor.
