How to deal with dry scalp

Many people assume that dandruff and dry scalp are the same thing. The truth, however, is that dandruff is caused by a yeast-like fungus that can easily be treated with anti-dandruff shampoos. (Most contain the anti-fungal ingredient zinc pyrithione). Dry scalp, on the other hand, is generally caused by underactive oil glands on your head. It can be made even worse in cold weather, which is why it tends to worsen during the winter.

To treat dry scalp, make a point of using mega-moisturising shampoos and conditioners. (A very harsh shampoo or anything that contains alcohol can make your condition worse). You could also try a deep conditioning hair treatment like Dr. Miracle’s Damaged Hair Medicated treatment*, R89,99. It’s an ultra intensive deep conditioning treatment mask that’s enriched with essential oils, proteins, amino acids and antioxidants. It also makes use of Dr. Miracle’s exclusive Thermalceutical complex to help stimulate blood flow to the scalp which helps speed up hair growth.

You could also try treating your scalp with a nourishing natural alternative like coconut oil. Simply massage it into your scalp (this’ll work best on dry hair), leave it on for up to half an hour so the oil can penetrate deep into your skin and then rinse it out.

*?The Dr. Miracle’s range of hair care products is available at selected Just On Cosmetics, Africa Cash & Carry and Clicks stores nationally, as well as major Hair and Beauty wholesalers and cash and carry outlets.
