Dry Scalp Vs Dandruff
A sprinkle of white flakes on the shoulder or an itchy sensation on the scalp often sends many into a beauty conundrum. Is it dandruff? Or just a dry scalp? While these terms are frequently used interchangeably, the truth is they stem from different issues and require varied approaches for effective treatment. Today, we'll delve into the distinguishing factors between a dry scalp and dandruff, and how products like FUL's Detox Scalp Treatment and Hyaluronic Acid Hair Serum can help.
Dry Scalp: The Underlying Factors
1. What it is: A dry scalp is essentially what it sounds like - the skin on your head is parched, leading to irritation and flakiness.
External aggressors: Extreme weather conditions, frequent washing, and heat styling tools can strip the scalp of its natural oils.
Hair products: Certain hair products can be too harsh, leading to dryness.
Diet and hydration: Not drinking enough water or having a diet low in essential fatty acids can contribute to a dry scalp.
3. Symptoms: White, small flakes, itchiness, and dryness not just on the scalp but also in other areas like eyebrows or sides of the nose.
Dandruff: Delving Deeper
1. What it is: Dandruff is a scalp condition characterised by the shedding of larger, oilier flakes usually accompanied by an inflamed, oily scalp.
Seborrheic dermatitis: This is the most common cause, marked by red, oily skin covered with flaky white or yellow scales.
Malassezia: A yeast-like fungus can irritate the scalp and lead to dandruff.
Other skin conditions: Eczema, psoriasis, or other skin disorders might also manifest as dandruff.
3. Symptoms: Large, oily flakes, red and oily scalp, and persistent itchiness.
