Come on, add onions, beer, ginger water, mature vinegar, raw eggs…
Does it sound like cooking?
In fact, these are folk remedies for dandruff removal. Some should be added to water to wash their hair, and some should be smeared on the scalp.
It is easy to talk, but those who really put it into practice are really miserable. Not only have they smeared their scalp with seven meat dishes and eight vegetables, but the result is often-it doesn’t work at all.
Why is the folk prescription useless? How should dandruff be solved? Dr. Clove told you.
Where is the folk prescription unreliable?
Dandruff is mainly composed of exfoliated scalp keratinocytes, sebum and microorganisms. To remove dandruff, one must start with reducing these guys.
However, with folk prescription shampoo, the situation is as follows:
- As long as the scalp is normal, scalp keratinocytes will fall off normally. As long as the scalp is normal, sebum will continue to secrete. As long as the scalp is normal, microorganisms do not pay much attention to these foods, and only special ingredients can regulate their [population].
In this way, as long as your scalp is normal, the things mentioned in these folk remedies are useless, because they cannot affect the three elements of dandruff formation.
More importantly, onions, ginger, vinegar, etc. can stimulate the scalp to food. If used for a long time, it may actually promote the proliferation and keratinization of scalp keratinocytes and aggravate the phenomenon of [dandruff swirling].
In fact, as long as normal people wash their hair diligently, dandruff will naturally decrease slowly.
Doctor Clove’s warm reminder: No matter what you use to wash, as long as you wash carefully and diligently, you will definitely see the effect.
Is dandruff shampoo the most effective?
For most people, this is true.
Ordinary [makeup name] dandruff shampoo actually adds a component called [pyrithione zinc], which can inhibit the overgrowth of scalp keratinocytes, prevent sebum from secreting excessively, and control bacterial reproduction.
In other words, it can deal with all three elements of dandruff formation, so this ingredient can really remove dandruff.
In addition, shampoo containing selenium disulfide, coal tar, ketoconazole and other ingredients can also remove dandruff, but this kind of special shampoo [drug name] needs to be bought at a pharmacy, and you must ask a dermatologist before using it.
Dandruff, but also pay attention to some what?
For people with dry skin, sebum secretion is insufficient. If you wash too often or use shampoo with too strong alkaline soap base, you may wash off the already insufficient sebum membrane, thus the scalp will be drier and the result will be more dandruff.
Therefore, for people with dry skin, they can wash it every other day or two and choose mild moisturizing shampoo.
For people with oily skin, sebum secretion is too exuberant, and scalp itself is the [melting pot] of sebum, so it is no problem to wash it diligently, even once a day.
In addition to washing more hair, in order to reduce oil secretion, you should eat less sweets, work and rest regularly, and maintain good physical condition.
Too much dandruff, may also be a disease?
Yes, this cannot be solved with dandruff shampoo.
For example, seborrheic dermatitis of scalp, psoriasis of scalp, pityriasis asbestos of scalp, tinea albicans, etc., need to be counted, and there are quite a few diseases that make dandruff more.
Unfortunately, many skin diseases on the scalp have no typical characteristics in the early stage and are difficult to find by themselves.
Therefore, if you feel dandruff but it is useless to wash your hair frequently, and it is also mixed with symptoms such as scalp itching and erythema, look for a dermatologist as soon as possible.
It is better to find out whether dandruff and scalp itching are caused by what.
