Advertising on our television is replete with goods that promise the consumer to get rid of dandruff. As an example, we can recall the notorious brand of shampoos Head and Shoulders. Despite the fact that this brand is recognized worldwide, we can not say that it will definitely help in the fight against dandruff. First, the Russian production of shampoo immediately confronts us with the quality question, and secondly, each organism is unique, and a universal remedy may not help someone. Let's deal with the problem of dandruff and find out how to deal with it. So:
How to get rid of dandruff?
It is still unknown about the nature of dandruff. As the main cause of its occurrence, a scalp fungus is usually isolated. The most interesting thing is that it dwells on the scalp all the time and in every person. However, it manifests itself only under adverse conditions of life that surround a person. It can be stress, poor ecology, fatigue, hormonal drugs, dehydration and lack of vitamins. Sometimes it happens that the fungus appears after going to the hairdresser.You could have become infected with a fungus, as the hairdresser did not properly process his tools.
There are two types of dandruff. The first one is dry dandruff. It appears after washing the head. It can be easily seen on the hair. The appearance of dry dandruff is associated with poor cell metabolism. The cells dry out too quickly, causing the dry skin to fall off. To restore the normal operation of cells on the surface of the head, it is necessary to replenish the necessary supply of fluid in the body. Drink plenty of mineral, boiled or purified water to restore the proper water balance in the body. This will help get rid of dandruff quickly.
Another type of dandruff is oily dandruff. Scales of skin are large and greasy. They are much smaller than dry scales. Oily dandruff is masked on the surface of the scalp and adheres to it. As a result, dandruff flakes filled with fat and fat become fertile ground for the development of microorganisms that feed on the scalp. As a rule, the skin quickly inflames and swells, which can lead to hair loss. In the case of oily dandruff, you should immediately contact a dermatologist.
Should I use dandruff shampoos? Do they really help? That's a good question. The quality of the shampoo in the fight against dandruff can not feel. Often, dandruff shampoos struggle only with the symptom of the disease, but not with its cause. That is, shampoos only remove skin flakes, but they have no effect on the fungus itself. However, they may suspend it. This will not last long, because after a few weeks of using the shampoo, the fungus will get used to the new conditions and begin to ignore the effect of the shampoo. All dandruff shampoos can be divided into three groups:
- antimicrobial shampoo (contains Zinc Pirythione, Climbazole, Ketoconozole, Selenium Disulphide)
- shampoo that removes dandruff flakes (Octopirox, Coal Tar, Selenium Disulphide)
- shampoos that reduce the speed of cell reproduction (Coal Tar, Sulfur, Salicylic Acid)
If the composition of the shampoo, which is described on the bottle, does not have these elements, then the shampoo is useless in the fight against dandruff, and you can not get rid of dandruff forever.
The surest remedy that will help you in the fight against dandruff is a drug. The fact is that medicinal methods of treatment affect the cause of the symptoms, namely the fungus. As you know, these drugs are more expensive than regular shampoos. Often, the effect does not appear immediately.But the use of these drugs can guarantee you one hundred percent cure for dandruff, if not forever, then at least for a long enough time.
