How to get rid of dandruff men. There’s a 50% chance that you’ll suffer from dandruff sometime in your life. If you have already do then fear not because there are ways to combat it. But before we start this blog post I’ve received a lot of messages to make a Post on dandruff which is why I’m doing it. Since some of them have actually been quite upsetting to read.
I just want to say if you suffer from dandruff which a lot of people do it’s not contagious. It is not because you have poor hygiene and it’s a natural process. So that if anyone says anything to you please don’t let it get to you remain positive and keep on being amazing.
Now that’s best, so dandruff is surprisingly caused by a fungus. That most of us have living naturally on our skin. Also it causes
problems for about half of us. This fungus is actually quite difficult to pronounce it’s called Malassezia globo.
Malassezia globosa is feeds off the natural oils on our skin and hair. It produces substance called Oleic acid which always reminds me of that Nike advert. Nike used to do some skills and he kept saying Ole. If you do remember that advert leave a comment to make me feel better.
Now the Oleic acid can irritate our skin
causing that itchiness. For some people it can actually set off an immune response causing a rapid turnover of skin cells. Usually dandruff appears as small round white to grey patches on the scalp. It’s usually most severe in the winter. When it is colder and mildest in the summer background done.
Now let’s move on to treatments, so my first tip don’t add oils to your scalp. It is not really gonna help and it’s just a waste of your money. Remember what I said earlier about the Malassezia globosa it feeds on natural oils on our skin and hair. Washing out these natural oils is far more likely to help. There is also an antifungal shampoo that can help kill those pesky fungus. Also it’s effective for treating dandruff, it’s called ketoconazole shampoo. Also it can be purchased from any pharmacy.
My top tips for anyone using this shampoo is, don’t use it like a normal shampoo. So you rub it in your hair smells great wash it off. But in this rub it into your scalp and leave it in there for five minutes. Earlier you wash it off that’ll give it the best chance of working and as always make sure you read all the information that comes with it. So that you may learn how to use it and also to make sure that you’re suitable to use it. Now you may find that after a while the effects of the antifungal shampoo begin to wear off.
This is important that you alternate it with different shampoos to prevent this from happening. Here is a quick breakdown of the different ingredients found in shampoos. And what they do, I think I’ll be useful for you to know. Then tailor it to your needs.
Coal tar shampoos slow down the skin turnover but it may discolour fair hair. Salicylic acid shampoos help to get rid of flakes. Shampoos which contains zinc or selenium can also target the fungus. So there is a wide range of solutions that you can try. But before you do so always speak to your pharmacist first. So they can give you more advice and tips and also make sure that you’re suitable to use these shampoos.
To summarise try these shampoos for a about a month to see if there’s any improvements. You need to try a few different types of shampoos to see which one works best for you. If you still see no improvement then see your doctor. So they can exclude any other skin conditions.
