Dandruff and Dry Scalp: Getting Down To The Roots

Dandruff and Dry Scalp: Getting Down To The Root Of the Problem

Last month, we learned that shampooing your hair too often can lead to very dry, parched strands or a very oily scalp

(stripping of the natural oils lead to overproduction).

This month, we are taking a deep dive in all things dandruff and the dreaded dry scalp.

Don’t be confused – these are two different conditions, but both produce similar symptoms!

Both produce flakes and are often accompanied by an itchy scalp.

QUICK TIP: One way to tell the difference between dandruff and dry scalp is that dandruff produces oily, large flakes while dry scalp produces dry, smaller flakes.

When dealing with dandruff, using a gentle shampoo will reduce the amount of oil on the scalp.

A gentle shampoo is absolutely necessary.

Using a harsh cleanser will over strip the oils present on the scalp which will make the scalp continue to overproduce oil circling back into the cycle.

If you have a dry scalp then applying a small amount of coconut oil to the scalp will help to reduce flakes.

Apply a small amount every day until symptoms lessen.

This will also train your sebum glands to start producing its natural oils again which will help alleviate dry scalp.
