Seborrheic Dermatitis also commonly known as “Dandruff” is a condition that affects the scalp. This yeast infection in the scalp, is a recurring problem. Not only it is irritating, but it is severely damaging for the hair too.

Dandruff occurs when the scalp sheds dead skin cells, and while a small amount of flaking is normal, excessive dandruff is a problematic condition. It could be caused by many things, visiting the Skinssence might help. It’s always good to get a professional’s view on which hair care products are safe and effective for you. .

What causes this itchy build-up?

A number of things can cause this, including a common skin condition known as seborrhoeic dermatitis. When too much yeast develops in the skin, this can cause it to become greasy and itchy, resulting in mild dandruff. Scalp ringworm (tinea capitis) can also lead to excessive flakes in scalp .

Dandruff causes the skin on the scalp to flake and can be very itchy, and it’s this that can lead to a build-up of skin. For really beautiful hair, use shampoos formulated for dandruff and use special scalp skincare products to ease the itching and soreness. It is also caused by the inflammation of the skin on the scalp. There are various factors that lead to the presence of dandruff and these include, air pollution, stress, genetic influences, chemical products, and skin-related illnesses.

 

Some key points about Dandruff

Self-care for your hair

It is very important to self-care for your hair as well, as nothing can replace this. Be cautious about your hair and make sure that you don’t use any harmful chemicals to get rid of the dandruff. Most useful procedures to combat dry hair and the dandruff is to use moisturising oils on the scalp biweekly. This not only helps in ridding you of the drying problem, but helps you fight itching and irritation caused by seborrheic dermatitis as well. While using these medicated shampoos, follow the below guidelines carefully:

  • Try using a mild shampoo.
  • Stress can aggravate dandruff, so make sure you make time to distress. Get more sleep, do more physical activities, talk to someone about how you feel.
  • Avoid using too much hair product as this can build up on your head and scalp, making your scalp oilier.
  • Spend some time outdoors soaking in the sunshine. UV rays can help dampen down dandruff.
  • This is a myth that dandruff occurs because of poor hygiene, when in fact, this problems can be from washing your hair too much or not rinsing out your shampoo thoroughly enough.
  • Try brushing your hair from the scalp down to help break down the build-up of oil on your skin. The natural oils from your scalp help to strengthen your hair too.
