Anti-Dandruff Treatment

Anti-Dandruff Treatment

What it is and what it is for?


Dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis is an inflammation together with a white or yellowish scaling, which causes a lot of irritation on the scalp, leading to an immense itch.
There are several brands that bet on products in this area. These treatments range from shampoos to exfoliants, and there are several methods to fight the disease.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Dandruff treatments have several ingredients, the most common of which are:
Salicylic acid, an ingredient that has the purpose of removing the scales that accumulate on the scalp. It also helps to combat irritation and itching of the scalp.
The treatments that use coal tar, as an active ingredient, are more focused on cases of thick crust, treating dandruff, as well as psoriasis and eczema. Coal tar reduces the production of skin cells, reducing redness, inflammation and irritation.
Zinc pyrithione, which is an antifungal and targets dead skin cells.


Which types exist and what are their differences?


There are several types of anti-dandruff treatments, depending on the evolution of the disease and the method of application to which the person best adapts.
The most common form of treatment is anti-dandruff shampoos, which are formulated to be applied in a practical and easy way.
Exfoliants, which are a much more aggressive treatment and more complicated to apply, as they have to be applied and rubbed more patiently and carefully.
These treatments can also be found in the mask format, more suitable for people with seasonal or chronic dandruff.
Finally, creams, which can be used instead of shampoo if the problem is less aggressive.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


The packages of the most common anti-dandruff treatments are in bottles, jars, dispensers and tubes.
As the majority of anti-dandruff treatments are shampoos, the most common packaging is vials, as they facilitate the application of the product. For these packages the size varies between 200ml to 1000ml, with 200ml being the most frequent.
In the case of masks, the most used packaging is the jars that vary between 200ml and 400ml.
The creams, which are in tubes or dozers, vary between 75ml and 200ml.


What to take into account when choosing an anti-dandruff treatment?


When choosing an anti-dandruff shampoo, look for one that contains zinc, as this is one of the main assets in this treatment.
You must take gravity into account, because if you choose a product that is too weak and if your disease is too aggressive, the product may not have enough power to fight it.
You should also check the ingredients present in the product as they may cause an allergic reaction.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


It is very important to make the right choice of product, that is, evaluate your hair type and look for a treatment that suits you.
You should wet your hair very well before applying the product, as it helps it to penetrate better to the scalp.
Another key factor is the way the shampoo is massaged into the hair, and should be done gently with your fingertips, never with your nails, to avoid injuring your scalp. You should also be careful not to over-massage, as it may stimulate the production of sebum, contrary to the treatment.
That said, rinse very well, ensuring that it leaves no residue from the treatment on both the scalp and the hair itself.


What are the pros and cons of using an anti-dandruff treatment?


With the regular use of an anti-dandruff treatment, you will be able to greatly improve the health of your hair and even eliminate dandruff.
However, if used in excess or incorrectly, these treatments can cause irritation or even worsen the condition of the disease.
Finally, these treatments are designed to help fight dandruff, improving the health of the scalp and providing a healthier and more beautiful appearance to the hair.


What are the reference brands of anti-dandruff treatments?


Regarding the reference marks for these treatments, Wella SP has a line entirely dedicated to this treatment, Clear Scalp.
Redken also has several products specially designed for this function, such as Scalp Relief Soothing Balance Shampoo, Scalp Relief Dandruff Control Shampoo and Scalp Relief Oil Detox Shampoo.
