All About Selecting a Good Dandruff Shampoo
The number of dandruff shampoos in the market baffles most of us suffering from dandruff. Each one of these shampoos claims to have a better ingredient that helps fight dandruff in a better way. However some tips could help one to select a good dandruff shampoo that serves our needs better.
One of the factors that cause dandruff and itchiness caused by it is the yeast like fungus that grows on the scalp. So one should make sure to select a shampoo that has effective ingredients to tackle the fungus as well as clean the scalp effectively without making it dry and scaly.
Most people having healthy hair and a clean scalp also have some amount of yeast, but dandruff is caused by the build up of oil or sebum on the scalp, psoriasis, eczema and food allergies that cause excess of fungal growth.
To select a good dandruff shampoo it is first necessary to make sure what the cause of dandruff is and remove the cause at the roots. Fungal growth may occur due to excess stress, hormonal disorders, poor diet, and a suppressed immune system. In addition hair dyes and colorants may also contribute to the growth of yeast and dandruff.
One should select and buy a good shampoo with anti-fungal ingredients if yeast is the cause of dandruff. A good dandruff shampoo should also take care of how severe the yeast is; go in for more powerful anti-fungal ingredients the more severe the attack. Good anti-fungal shampoos should contain ingredients like Ketoconazole, selenium sulfide, sulfur, zinc, pyrithione and Salicylic acid. An herbal anti-fungal dandruff shampoo should contain Tea Tree oil.
Ketaconazole has anti-fungal ingredients, which could combine with selenium sulfide to suppress sebum produced by the glands on the scalp. Zinc pyrithione helps to reduce the formation of yeast and Salicylic acid works as a scalp scrubber to remove dead cells that irritate the scalp. Hence while one selects a good dandruff shampoo one has to make sure that his shampoo has all the ingredients to help him to get rid of dandruff.
Anyone wanting to go herbal than be sure to select a dandruff shampoo that has tea tree oil in it. A combination of rosemary and sandalwood with it makes for a real good dandruff shampoo. Tea tree oil has antiseptic properties that help to fight infection. When this combines with rosemary the shampoo acquires anti-bacterial property and sandalwood helps to control itchiness.
So dear friends make sure you select a good dandruff shampoo that has all these ingredients, but also make sure you massage some oil regularly to keep the scalp well hydrated.
