Dandruff and Hair Loss

dandruffDandruff is one of the most common problems especially in spring. Statistics says that every second American adult person has to fight with dandruff in the period between February and May. Many of us do not pay much attention on this problem and do not use any special treatments for dandruff. This is actually not right, because sometimes excessive dandruff, itchy scalp, scalp inflammation or seborrehic dermatitis can become an indirect reason for hair loss. Specialists underline that dandruff is not just a cosmetic problem, it’s a serious disease connected with dry scalp.

Certainly, excessive dandruff and seborrehic dermatitis should not be considered causes of hair loss. However, dandruff can stimulate hair loss by making the scalp irritated and itchy, or causing serious scalp inflammation. As a result, people start rubbing and scrubbing the scalp causing physical damage of hair follicles and the environment where they develop and grow. Therefore, if left untreated on time, this problem can increase the severity of hair thinning and loss.

If you suffer from such problem as dandruff, you should use some good high quality shampoo with strong anti-fungal properties. Nizoral is one of those, a worldwide known shampoo containing ketoconazole, created to assist in combating dandruff. Also, it is possible to use some homemade remedies: for example, boiling the skins of 4 lemons in 1 liter of water for 15 mins and washing your hair with this lemony water. Some gurus recommend using special mustard hair masks, or rubbing some drops of Calendula Officinalis extract into your scalp. In any way, the problem of dandruff should not be neglected or taken as something that will disappear itself. Love your hair and be healthy!
