Dry itchy scalp?
Reach for the Head and Shoulders or other over the counter dandruff shampoo. Not! It appears that ingredients in these products that we have been using for years may cause as much damage as they fix.
Strange but if true we may create more flakes using the product to stop them than what we would have produced if we just left it alone.
What is Dandruff?
I am not sure everyone is aware but there are multiple cause of dandruff. Some as simple as not cleaning or over cleaning our hair and scalp. Yes I said even over cleaning can cause this condition. As well as genetic and skin conditions like Dry Skin and seborrheic dermatitis. Over shampooing can cause a yeas like fungus as well as psoriasis and eczema.
Zinc Pyrithione and Coal Tar
These ingredients are the most common active properties in dandruff-fighting shampoos, but Greyl warns that they can be incredibly harsh on the scalp and surrounding skin. As a nourishing alternative, Leonor Greyl Bain Traitant a la Propolis is able to treat itchy dandruff without the troublesome ingredients.
