Dandruff. What Is It And How To Prevent This Disease


It is not an easy task to find a human being who has never encountered such a problem as dandruff at least once in his life. Moreover, it appears not only in people – old folks, men, women, substrings, babies, but also in animals, for example, pets – dogs and cats. This indicates poor health and significantly impairs the quality of daily life. But it’s a very intricate problem that needs to be cleared up in barbershop on Manhattan.

Dandruff is a painful scalp condition that produces specific white scales at the hair roots, itching, burning, and general discomfort.

Dandruff arising can be influenced by many factors – from an unhealthy diet to the frequency of shampooing. Fortunately, today there are some remedies that allow you to quickly, and even permanently remove a kind of white flakes from hair, and at home.

Contrary to widespread belief, dry scalp is not the main cause of dandruff. The real cause is the yeast spreading called pityrosporum orbiculare. This fungus is found in the scalp of almost everyone and very often has no effect on the health condition. However, in some cases, due to the active interaction with sebum, the fungus rapidly multiplies, causing increased keratinization and uneven division of skin cells, as a result, dandruff forms on the hair scalp.

Dandruff can be a result of using low-quality shampoo and improper caring for hair. Regular shampooing can help reduce sebum and dirt, prevent dandruff, but don’t do it too often (every day) to avoid skin overdrying. Use only the best men’s shampoos, hair sprays, conditioners and dyes for a particular hair type and thoroughly rinse off any residues that may create an enabling environment for the spread of pityrosporum orbiculare while you wash hair.

A balanced diet strengthens the body, including healthy skin and hair. Of course, experts see eye to eye that an inappropriate diet is the main dandruff cause. But certain food (meat, dairy products) with a high content of trans fats significantly complicates the fight against it and even contributes to the further disease progression. In addition, a lack of vitamin B leads to the dandruff spread.

The greatest way to get rid of dandruff effectively and quickly is to apply an antifungal shampoo, which is available at almost every single drugstore. Such products include specific ingredients – ketoconazole, selenium sulfide, zinc pyrithione, coal tar, salicylic acid, tea tree oil and some others.

Regardless of the shampoo type, read the instructions carefully before use. At the initial stage (5-7 days), the hair should be washed daily, and then once a week. In milder cases, even conventional anti-dandruff shampoos are profitable.

In most cases, a man manages to completely get rid of dandruff at home, but sometimes it is impossible to do without consulting a doctor or some medical examination. A sign of a major illness is severe itching and scalp redness. If the anti-dandruff shampoo and other remedies mentioned above do not help, then you should immediately contact your doctor or another trichologist.
