March 12, 2014

 Dandruff - a common enough phenomenon that sooner or later face almost all, and some are fighting for years. Win dandruff difficult, but still possible: get help from old folk remedies based on natural products and advanced scientific research.



Loose clothes on gray-white flakes of dandruff look sloppy, and thus create difficulties in communication and cause insecurity. Where does dandruff? The reason in most cases to be found in his own body: dandruff shows some deficiencies in his work. For example, it may be due to metabolic disorders Metabolic disorders: acquired and inherited - whether between RA  Metabolic disorders: acquired and inherited - whether between RA
 Provoked by stress, wrong mode of the day, poor diet, hormonal imbalances and a variety of other reasons. Sometimes the situation is aggravated, and improper care of hair and scalp.

Often dandruff is a symptom of such dermatological diseases as seborrhea. This disease occurs most often as a result of hormonal disruptions in the body, which can increase the activity of sebaceous glands. Increased production of sebum and change its chemical composition reduces the protective properties of the scalp and stimulates the multiplication of fungal infections Fungal infection: to prevent and defeat  Fungal infection: to prevent and defeat

As you know, on human skin home to many bacteria, fungi and microbes. As long as a person is healthy, these "tenants" did not make themselves known, but just as in the body there are failures, they are activated and begin to multiply. Similarly behaves like fungus Pityrosporum Ovale (or Malassezia Furfur). If the rate of cell growth occurs gradually, and the upper layer of the epidermis is updated about a month, the result of a fungus, this period is reduced by several times. New skin cells grow and die too quickly and remain on the scalp and hair in the form of unpleasant dingy flakes. In addition to this fungus irritates the scalp, causing itching and burning of the skin.


Dry or oily?

There are two types of dandruff: dry and greasy. Dry dandruff appears as a result of metabolic disorders Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
 : Changing the composition of the secret, which is produced by the sebaceous glands, located on the scalp. Sebum becomes too thick, dead skin cells and exfoliate the scalp too active. This takes the form of small dandruff flakes gray color, it settles on the hair and clothes to crumble. The hair at the same time do not look in the best way: they fade, wilt, become brittle and fall out.

Frequent shampooing for dry dandruff only exacerbates the situation. The skin becomes sensitive, prone to irritation.

Oily dandruff occurs when the sebaceous glands in the head are working too actively. On the surface of the scalp, a dense cake, consisting of scales of dead skin. Oily dandruff is a dirty yellow. Hair loses shine, stick together, become greasy.


Dandruff Treatment

Fight dandruff as it is virtually meaningless: the illness itself is not a disease, but rather evidence of functional disorders in the body. It is for this reason, inefficient advertised shampoos dandruff: they just wash away the scales from the hair, but do not eliminate the cause. As a result of dandruff returns, one has only to stop using "magic shampoo".

If the cause of the "snow" on the hair is known, everything is simple: it is necessary to eliminate this cause. For example, if the dandruff is a response to the use of an agent for hair care, just stop using this tool. But most of its origin dandruff owes a whole range of reasons, which means that dandruff treatment must be complex.

This means that you have to change your lifestyle. It is a balanced eating that prevailed in the diet is not simple carbohydrates and fats. Food should be rich in vitamins and trace elements. Mental hygiene is very important: you need to learn to cope with stress, get rid of stress if not impossible.

Do not do without local treatment, which is usually in the use of special shampoos and sometimes other means for the recovery of the scalp. Best of all, if you select the right shampoo doctor after examining the scalp. If a visit to trihologu for some reason can not, you can at your own risk and choose a shampoo by trial and error. In that case, the fight against dandruff may take a long time, but sooner or later have a chance to find a tool that will help deal with the problem.


Choosing the Right Shampoo

Dandruff shampoos may contain anti-inflammatory, antifungals, exfoliating components. Some of them act as a scrub effectively cleansing the scalp of dandruff flakes. Others contain in its composition components that soothe irritation and soothe the skin. Many funds have a complex effect: struggling with several species of fungi and bacteria, exfoliate, soothe the scalp, strengthen hair. Usually dandruff shampoos are available in pharmacies without a prescription, although some funds to purchase may be required prescription.

Antibacterial and antifungal effects are shampoos with zinc pyrithione. When seborrheic dermatitis Seborrheic dermatitis - the body's overreaction  Seborrheic dermatitis - the body's overreaction
   help shampoos containing coal tar. Selenium sulfide shampoo as part slow down the process of exfoliation of skin cells and reduce the activity of the yeast fungus Malassezia Furfur.
