Dandruff is known to be a flaking of the scalp. As a result, white patches of dry skin appear, which are either scattered throughout the hair or may fall onto clothes or shoulders.
Dandruff can often be accompanied by itching and an oily or greasy appearance of the hair, as well as dryness and/or redness. As you can see, dandruff does not lead to any benefits to be proud of, which is why most people who suffer from dandruff tend to treat it to make it go away.
To date there is no specific cause for dandruff, but some of the reasons why it can appear are:
- Hormonal changes
- Oily skin
- Irritated skin
- Seasonal changes
- Having a very common skin fungus called Pytirosporum ovale
- Imbalance in microbial flora
- Use of chemical hair care products
- Increase in the speed of the hair renewal process.
There are several treatments to prevent or effectively combat dandruff and one of them is the use of the miracle plant, Aloe Vera.
To begin with, what is usually recommended to stop dandruff is to wash your hair with a specific shampoo that is able to reduce the oiliness of the scalp and reduce the accumulation of any dead cells that you may have. Aloe Vera shampoo is one of the shampoos that can be used thanks to its high content of amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are ideal for combating this scalp problem.
But why is Aloe Vera used to fight dandruff? This plant is a very effective natural remedy for this type of treatment against dandruff as it has antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal properties that are unequalled. Aloe Vera is capable of eliminating any residue from the skin, reducing, thanks to its analgesic power, the annoying itching caused by this flaking.
Aloe Vera is an ideal product for treating dandruff as, in addition to the above, it deeply moisturises the hair fibres, preserving the balance and shine of the scalp.
Its antibacterial power is able to act directly on the root of the problem. The pure Aloe Vera gel is able to kill the fungus that causes dandruff thanks to its antifungal power, and this in turn is able to minimise the desquamation of the hair cells.
Aloe Vera acts on the scalp as a natural moisturiser and as a splendid repairer of damaged hair thanks to its moisturising power that deeply nourishes the hair follicles.
In addition, Aloe Vera has the ability to remove any residue that may have accumulated in the pores of the scalp. The result is a deep cleansing of the hair.
There is also another natural ingredient that is able to combat the secretion of oil in the hair. Do you know what it is? Lemon. This ingredient is able to control frizz, regulate the pH of the skin, exfoliate dead cells, prevent hair loss, regulate oil … and much more!
So if you have dandruff and you want to get rid of the itching and discomfort caused by this flaking of the scalp, it is recommended to use pure Aloe Vera gel and any shampoo containing Aloe Vera and/or lemon.
