What do you notice ?



Little white flakes or scabs of varying size on clothes and in your hair that detract from your appearance. Despite repeated shampooing, this dandruff persists and returns in force, giving an unpleasant image of neglect that is often difficult to cope with. To address the situation, you must first of all understand it correctly.

Put things to rights

Dandruff, clumps of skin cells at the scalp's surface, comes from a speeded-up renewal of skin cells in response to scalp irritation. Cells that have reached maturity are shed quite naturally and make way for new ones. These microscopic scales are normally invisible but certain imbalances can disrupt and accelerate their renewal. Malassezia, a fungus found naturally on the scalp, breaks down scalp oils to create oleic acid. If you have a sensitivity to oleic acid, this is when dandruff develops. Tiredness, hormonal changes and stress can also make the appearance of dandruff worse.

What you should do

1
Use a specially formulated hair care.

2
Use a brush to evenly distribute the lather from your shampoo over the scalp and brush very gently.

3
Set your hair-dryer to a lower heat setting if you choose to dry your hair with heat.


What you should avoid


 

  • Limit stress.
  • Do not go overboard with styling products and chemical treatments.
