HOW TO GET RID OF DANDRUFF ?

What causes dandruff?


“Dandruff” is actually an umbrella term for any affliction of the scalp that causes the skin cell on its surface to flake. In the case of true dandruff, the surface of the scalp contains a certain natural yeast in excess, making the skin flake. Trichologists suggest using an anti-dandruff shampoo to reduce dandruff and to sooth the scalp. Do still use conditioner, but only on the ends of your hair strands. Flaking can also be caused by insufficient rinsing.

Which product for which type of dandruff?


There are two types of dandruff: dry dandruff and oily dandruff. Dry dandruff is often linked to a dry scalp and an ill-adapted shampooing regimen, whereas oily dandruff is linked to other factors such as stress. L’Occitane has designed a special Anti-Dandruff Shampoo that treats both kinds of dandruff. For dry dandruff, it is also recommended that you use this shampoo in addition to using Soothing Scalp Oil before shampooing, to ensure your scalp doesn’t dry out any more.

Dry hair enemies

Your hair is very sensitive, and if undergoes a lot of stress, it can actually begin to break and lose its suppleness. Your hair gets damaged by heat and dryness most of all: crimpers, hair curlers, hair straighteners, dyes and coloring, excessive and overly hot blow drying, even sunlight, all of these dry out and damage your hair. First, avoid hair styling appliances that apply heat directly onto your hair, or don’t use them daily. Second, remember to protect your hair just as much as you protect your skin in the sun with a specific hair spray.

Brushing your hair safely


1. Choose a hard rubber brush, or a brush with a rounded cushion, to avoid hair from being tangled into the bristles. 


2. If your hair is tangled, do not try to brush out the knot from the root. Focus on the knotted part and brush it out directly, otherwise you’ll just be knotting your hair even more.


3. Always brush with a gentle touch, don’t pull or twist your hair too much, especially if you blow dry it.


4. When in doubt, ask your hairdresser for what he or she thinks is the brush most suited for you
