Let's demystify oily and dry dandruff!

Demystify and make the difference between oily and dry dandruff:

Also called scales, dandruff is in fact an overproduction of cells that end up dying on the surface since they are present in too large a quantity. Dry dandruff often ends up on clothes, as it peels off the hair and scalp. It is indeed the embarrassing film that we hate to have on our shoulders. Considering that hydration is the solution to dryness, in certain situations including dandruff, a hydration bath with the use of soothing products to relax the scalp could be a solution.

  • How to tell the difference and recognize oily dandruff?
  • Where do they come from and how do you get rid of them?

We take stock, here are some small clues to differentiate the 2 forms of dandruff:

Dry dandruff:

  • Rather fine and very volatile, they could be mistaken for plaster dust!

Oily dandruff:

  • Rather large, yellowish and heavy. They are not exiting, so they stick to the scalp! Being larger in size and yellowish in color, oily dandruff is small patches that cling to the scalp forming yellowish clumps. In fact, the scalp is then over-produced sebum.
  • It is important to know that oily dandruff can cause severe itching and promote the development of bacteria. By asphyxiating the scalp, they can also promote hair loss.

In any case, don't worry, your naturopath has solutions for you!
