Is Dandruff One Of Beauty’s Last Taboos?
Triggers can include diet, stress, and changing hormone levels, with many women reporting dandruff after coming off hormonal birth control. Whatever the cause, the belief that a
dry scalp causes dandruff is incorrect, and avoiding shampooing for fear of drying it out more won’t help. According to the experts, oily scalps are more prone, and shampooing regularly is the key. When it comes to choosing your products, look out for specific anti-yeast ingredients such as ketoconazole, zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide, or piroctone olamine, which you can find in a range of anti-dandruff shampoos; Kingsley recommends that her customers try
Philip Kingsley’s Flaky Scalp Shampoo, which gets its impressive flake-removing power from piroctone olamine and has a pleasant non-medical, fruity scent. Tar-based products, or those containing salicylic acid, can also help.
