Why are there so many different types of products for Dandruff? Have you ever had this experience? Trying a product that was a good antifungal, that worked wonderfully initially, but later dandruff keeps coming back. 

You might have also tried a shampoo that was a good cleanser as well as anti-dandruff. But still, the problem of dandruff reappears. There is scientifically proven research available. Furthermore, understanding is needed to solve the puzzle of dandruff.

What is Dandruff?

It is the excessive formation of dead cells in the outermost layer of the skin. 

Dandruff formation starts with an inflammatory reaction of the scalp to irritants. This leads to the formation of dead cells and breaks in the covering. Now the Fungi Malassezia which is present in the scalp uneventfully starts multiplying.

It is due to the rich nutrient supply. This further causes skin inflammation rapidly.  It is mainly because of the inflammatory process and increased formation of dead squamous epithelium. It leads to the multiplication of the cycle again.

Causes of skin irritation/inflammation are 

  • Microbial infections
  • Excess exposure to sunlight
  • Over-shampooing
  • Frequent combing
  • Cosmetic products
  • Dirt, and dust. 

Holistic Approach to Dandruff

A natural, nonirritant, anti-fungal, and nourishing shampoo is an efficient remedy. Such a combination seems to be rare to ask for. But if any one of the qualities goes missing, then we are not able to break the cycle of dandruff formation.

It does so by multiplying the fermentation process. Natural proteins have broad antibacterial and antifungal properties. Natural antioxidants help repair damaged hair. and Essential vitamins provide nourishment for healthy hair development.

Dandruff is the most recurrent scalp problem. This is due to its multicentric origin. It is very common for people who try multiple products over a long period. The main cause of the massive overuse of anti-dandruff chemicals is recurrence.

These habits expose a person to around  300 different types of chemicals per day. Thus leading to the accumulation of 0.6kg of harsh chemicals/year in our body. Hence leaves us at risk of toxicity, Cancer, microbial resistance, etc. But the amount of damage to the environment is unprecedented. So, “Go dandruff free safely and naturally”.

So, Why Toxins? Go Naturals!
