Dry Scalp


Reena Sukdev Homeopath View profile

The best approach would be to try and establish the cause of your dandruff. There could be many factors leading to this. First, look at the state of your scalp and hair. Use the appropriate range of organic shampoos as this will help. Organic products can make a huge difference. If over activity of oil production is the cause, then using some of the organic shampoos like Desert Essence Lemon Tea tree, Giovanni Golden Wheat Grass or Enchantrix Amaranth & Fennel for oily hair will help. If there was a fungal element then taking an anti dandruff shampoo like Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Shampoo or Natures Gate Tea Tree Shampoo might help. If the scalp is too dry, try Natures Gate Aloe Vera or Hemp Shampoo. Desert Essence also makes a nice Italian Red Grape shampoo that will be good here or even Enchantrix Spearmint and Rosemary. Rub some pure organic Crede coconut oil in your hair before you shampoo. This is one of the best things you could do for your dandruff. Increase circulation to your scalp by having a good Indian head massage. We need to then look at other possible factors. If stress is a factor, try to deal with this. Using high B vitamins will definitely help. Make sure you take essential fatty acids. Use a good Omega 3 & 6 combination. This will help maintain healthy scalp and hair. Look at your carbohydrate and sugar consumption as this could be a contributing factor. Check your sugar levels. Other considerations when dealing with dandruff would be to wash your hair with lukewarm water rather than hot water. Blow dry your hair at a distance and not too close. The styling gels, sprays and mousses can build up on your scalp. Avoid alcohol-based styling products as they tend to dry out the scalp. Hope this helps. Please feel free to visit me at the NaturalMed Dispensary at Cavendish for further advice and consultation. Kind regards Reena
