Scalp problems - Dandruff, Eczema, Hair Loss and Sensitive Scalp
Posted by : Clifford Li /
Many people suffer from scalp problems due to styling products that are not washed out before bedtime, moist and warm scalp, dry scalp due to air conditioning or bad/wrong shampoo. It may cause dandruff, hair loss or itching on the scalp. We recommend Deep wood shampoo no.07 and Deep wood conditioner no.08 against scalp problems. Wash your hair at least every other day, preferably every day. Distribute Deep wood shampoo no.07 in dry hair and wash. Then use Deep wood conditioner no. 08 on the scalp and let it sit for at least 2 minutes.
Dandruff is an overgrowth of yeast fungus. A high sebum production provides good breeding for increased fungal growth and a scalp with dandruff typically has an increased production of sebum, whose purpose is to naturally grease and protect our skin so it does not dry out. You can both have greasy or dry dandruff. It may be due to a reduced immune system after illness, medicine intake or hormones.
It is important to create a good balance between moisture and cleansing and therefore, it may be a good idea to switch between two shampoos to create a healthy scalp environment.
If it does not disappear, you should take a short treatment with a prescription drug from the pharmacy. But try only to use it in difficult cases and for a short time as it does not balance but only degrades the fungus.
Psoriasis / Eczema treatment
Psoriasis is a skin disease that appears on the scalp or skin as red and very dry eczema. It can cause hair loss if it becomes too thick and hard as the scalp cannot transport oxygen to the hair follicles. This type of scalp requires a very mild shampoo that does not irritate. Most people with psoriasis have scalp lesions which may be the first place where psoriasis occurs. Usually, you notice loose scaling. Patches of eczema or psoriasis can be found everywhere on the scalp, but especially on the border of the surrounding skin, for example, in the forehead and at the ears. Like common psoriasis and eczema, scalp psoriasis is aggravated by alcohol. We recommend Pure shampoo no.01 and Pure conditioner no.02. During psoriasis outbreaks, use Pure oil treatment no.97. Apply the oil on the scalp or skin and allow it to work for up to 2 hours - preferably with a damp towel around. Wash it out again and distribute Pure shampoo no.01 in the hair before water, and then wash. Use Pure conditioner no.02 on the scalp and allow it to work for at least 2 minutes. For extra in-depth effect, allow the oil to work overnight.
Many people loose hair due to stress, perfumed styling, hair colour, scalp fungus, pregnancy / birth, hormone disturbances or medicine. If you suffer from hair loss and if the hair feels thin and sensitive, it is important that the hair has the right conditions for growth. We always recommend Deep wood shampoo no.07 and conditioner no.08 against hair loss. Wash the hair at least every other day, preferably every day. In the evening, apply Pure oil treatment no.97 on the scalp where the hair loss is. Wash it out in the morning and distribute Deep wood shampoo no.07 in the hair before water and then wash the hair.
If you have very sensitive scalp and perhaps even sensitive skin, it is important to be particularly careful with scents and especially the natural ones. Use Zenz Pure line that is without essential oils and perfume. If possible, wash the hair and scalp clean of styling products before bedtime as styling products may irritate a sensitive scalp when you sweat and get warm.
Tips against dry scalp
Dry scalp may be due to many things. A good conditioner moisturises both hair and scalp. If this is not enough, we recommend a Zenz oil of your choice. Add a few drops on your fingertips and massage the scalp. Allow the oil to work overnight and wash out.
