Although harmless, dandruff can often interfere with everyday life, especially when it itches the scalp or suddenly appears on clothing and affects self-confidence.
The medical sector values that dandruff is caused by several factors, such as atopic skin, dryness of the scalp, the use of an incorrect shampoo or a yeast-like fungus that causes itching and continuous formation of white scales.
Dandruff or pityriasis is mainly characterized by the appearance of these white scales in the hair and is often accompanied by symptoms such as inflammation and itching on the scalp. Although it is a frustrating condition of the hair, it is completely treatable.
If you thought we all had similar dandruff symptoms, you’re wrong/a. There are different types of dandruff that are formed by completely different factors, so it is important to correctly identify them to carry out the appropriate treatment.
Types of dandruff
Dandruff caused by dry skin
Dandruff related to dry skin is a very common condition and usually occurs in winter. It can be caused by showers with very hot water, which makes the scalp very dry and scaly. People with dry, curly hair often suffer from this type of dandruff.
This condition should be treated with good moisturizing shampoos and should avoid bleaching, dyes and permanent treatments. Redenhair Regenerative Shampoo is a product that provides the optimal level of hydration to not suffer scalp peeling caused by dryness. In addition, it contains active ingredients that nourish the follicles for a healthy and strong growth of the hair and not containing sulfates is respectful with the scalp.
Regular oil-based hair massages also help relieve itching and stimulate blood circulation and nutrition of the scalp.
Dandruff caused by oily skin
Dandruff related to oily skin occurs when there is a build-up of sebum in the scalp that is secreted by the sebaceous glands. This oil can cause clumps of all dead skin cells and dirt, forming itchy scales. High levels of stress and anxiety contribute to high amounts of sebum secretion leading to this condition.
Talk to your doctor about the right medication. An anti-dandruff shampoo should work properly to clean the excess oil present on the scalp.
The Malassezia fungus is a natural microorganism found on the skin and scalp of all of us. This fungus survives with excess oil on the scalp and, in turn, causes oleic acid as a by-product, which causes the grouping of skin cells and causes excess white scales.
In this case, we recommend that you use Redenhair Anti-dandruff Shampoo, a product with specific active ingredients to reduce the proliferation of this fungus and thus prevent the formation of dandruff.
Dandruff caused by a disease
Some skin conditions like psoriasis, atopic skin, or eczema stimulate the excessive production of skin cells. This leads to flaky skin on the scalp. When these skin cells come into contact with oil produced by the sebaceous glands and dirt, dandruff occurs.
On the other hand, seborrheic dermatitis can also lead to dandruff. This is a more serious condition, as it causes intense redness, scalp sores, and itching. It is shown mainly in the back of the head and neck. Consult a doctor to get the right medication before it spreads to your face and ears.
If dandruff is not treated properly, it can lead to major complications. Itching and redness of the skin can cause the scalp to scratch, causing scabs to appear. Dry dandruff can evolve into pityriasis fat, with the problems associated with it. Also, in some cases, this condition can lead to alopecia.
However, with a good treatment product such as Redenhair Anti-dandruff Shampoo you will ensure the disappearance of this uncomfortable condition.
