Yes, dandruff is uncomfortable & embarrassing - however, it can be treated very well! This blog post is all about dandruff and scalp problems and especially what to do about them. We hope you enjoy reading through it and look forward to your feedback 🙂
What are dandruff
The skin cells on our scalp live on average for about a month. The skin cell then turns into a horny cell and is rejected by the body. A scale is now the composition of many small horn cells. The small horny cells stick together on the head due to the production of sebum and this creates a scale.
How and how does dandruff develop?
If the dandruff is so strong that the individual dandruff or horny cells do not improve by washing the hair normally, an anti-dandruff shampoo should be used.
What to do about dandruff
In addition to a good anti-dandruff shampoo that is as natural as possible, we have put together other valuable tips for you:
1) Do not shower too hot
When washing your hair, you should not set the temperature of the water too low or too high. While the oil is not completely washed out in water that is too cold, hot water not only damages the hair, but also stimulates the production of sebum, which should be avoided with oily hair. Therefore, lukewarm water, which is around body temperature, is ideal for shampooing.
2) After washing your hair, be careful with your hair dryer, fingers and a comb
While the sebum glands should be opened by massage when washing your hair in order to release accumulated sebum, they should secrete as little sebum as possible after washing so as not to grease the hair. Heat strongly stimulates the glands, so it is best to blow dry your hair with cold water or, if possible, to let it air dry.
