3 reasons why you still have dandruff and how to finally treat it

Dandruff is one of those pesky conditions you can’t seem to shake off. It’s frustrating not being able to get to the root cause, especially when it’s affecting your day-to-day routine. In this article, we’re going to show you three reasons why you’re still suffering from dandruff and how to finally treat it once and for all!

Touch-me-not:

Touching or scratching your scalp may seem harmless but you should know that it can worsen the condition. Not only will this increase irritation but it can also bring dirt in contact with the skin, which can exacerbate it further. It may be a good idea to resist that urge to itch next time or even as you continue reading this article.

Turn down the dial on stress:

Stress can worsen or even aggravate the scalp that may cause dandruff for some individuals. While it’s not introduced to your scalp by stress, it can thrive if your immune system is compromised—which is what stress does. Practice relaxation techniques to calm yourself. Take a restorative walk, try yoga, or keep track of stressful events in a journal. You may even find it helpful to identify the type of trigger that sets off your dandruff, so you can do your best to avoid it or explore the best possible way to tackle it.

While you work on de-stressing yourself, may we recommend using our Home Remedies to Treat Dandruff to calm your flaky scalp? It is a combination of salicylic acid and camellia oil which helps soothe, gently exfoliate and balance sebum production on your scalp.

Don’t let it build up:

Hair products such as hair gel and hair spray can adversely react to your skin type and create oils that can irritate your scalp. Look for ingredients that end with ‘-cone’ or ‘-cones’ in your hair products. It may be a good idea to let go of these products for some time in order to see if the situation with dandruff improves.

We take scalp health almost as seriously as we do climate action. And so, all our products are specifically designed to get to the root cause (quite literally) and help address your scalp needs. Read our other blogs to demystify the case of your chronic dandruff.
