How to eliminate dandruff effectively

Dandruff is caused by a scalp imbalance and is a daily source of discomfort. It negatively impacts the beauty of your hair and can affect your self-confidence and often goes hand in hand with itching. It also tends to reoccur despite anti-dandruff treatments. The problem is that using anti-dandruff shampoos and treatments that are too aggressive for the scalp creates a vicious circle and dandruff reappears. How can you eliminate it effectively?

Find the right hair washing schedule

If hair is washed too often, it might make the situation even worse. When the scalp presents dandruff, it needs to be treated gently and allowed to “rest”. Go longer between hair washes, delicately massage products into the scalp when shampooing, and resist the temptation to scratch if there is any itching. Daily massage and gentle brushing may also help to soothe a stressed scalp and reduce feelings of discomfort.

Eat a healthy diet

A healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, along with good hydration, contribute to skin and scalp quality.

Combat stress

Stress can play a part in the appearance of dandruff or aggravate an existing situation. You can try to reduce it by getting regular physical activity, limiting screen use, and having dedicated relaxation time (reading, meditation, yoga, etc.).

Use gentle formulas

The scalp, just like the face, needs to be treated gently. Make sure to use gentle formulas that will purify and rebalance the scalp without irritating it.

Two steps for curing dry dandruff

The scalp is an ecosystem with several factors contributing to its balance. When this balance is disrupted, it can cause cell renewal to intensify, which will lead to the appearance of dandruff. By using an anti-dandruff shampoo and a suitable treatment, dandruff will disappear and your scalp will be left comfortable and balanced once more.

Four steps for eliminating oily dandruff

Oily dandruff is caused by over-production of sebum by the scalp. Brushing helps to remove any loose flakes and a dedicated routine will solve the problem with long-term results. Make sure to use an anti-dandruff shampoo and an anti-dandruff treatment. Pro tip: to purify your scalp and soothe feelings of discomfort, apply a pre-shampoo mask.

Any questions?

What causes dandruff?

The scalp is an ecosystem. It is made up of “good” and “bad” yeasts and bacteria living in symbiosis for an ideal balance. It can also be aggravated by external factors such as stress, lifestyle and the climate.

What causes scalp imbalances?

Many factors lead to the appearance of dandruff. It depends on both genetic and external factors: stress, lifestyle, washing hair with harsh products and too often, the climate.

How can I get rid of dandruff effectively?

The source of the imbalance needs to be treated. There are two essential steps to restoring scalp health: a gentle shampoo that will purify the scalp without irritating it, and an anti-dandruff treatment that will rebalance the scalp and maintain this balance over time.

How can you distinguish between oily and dry dandruff?

The type of dandruff is closely linked to hygiene and lifestyle (environment, stress, diet), but also genetics. Oily dandruff tends to stick to the scalp, while dry dandruff, which flakes off, is more visible in the lengths of the hair and on the shoulders.
