Dandruff | How To Get Rid Of Dandruff (2018)


Dandruff there’s a 50% chance that
you’ll suffer from it sometime in your lifetime but if you already do then fear
not because there are ways to combat it so I’m in London this week because I’m doing some work for Reckitt Benckiser but before we begin this week’s video I’ve
received a lot of messages to make a video on dandruff which is why I’m doing it but some of them have actually been quite upsetting to read so I just want to say if you suffer from dandruff which a lot of people do it’s not contagious, it’s not because you have poor hygiene and it’s a natural process so if anyone says anything to you please don’t let it get to you remain positive and keep on being amazing now that’s better, so dandruff is surprisingly caused by a
fungus which most of us have living naturally on our skin and it causes
problems for about half of us the fungus is actually quite difficult to pronounce it’s called Malassezia globo.. (Laughter) Malassezia globos.. Malassezia globo.. it’s the
globosa the globosa Malassezia globosa which feeds off the natural oils on our skin and hair and it produces something called Oleic acid which always reminds me of that Nike advert I don’t know if you remember it had Ronaldinho in it he used to do some skills and he kept saying Ole! yeah if you do remember that advert leave a comment below and make me feel better now the Oleic acid can irritate our skin
causing that itchiness and in some people it can actually set off an immune
response causing a rapid turnover of skin cells dandruff usually appears as
small round white to grey patches on the scalp it’s usually most severe in the
winter when it’s colder and mildest in the summer background done now let’s move on
to treatments so my first tip don’t add oils to your scalp it’s not really gonna
help and it’s just a waste of your money remember what I said earlier about the
Malassezia globosa it feeds on the natural oils on our skin
and hair so washing out these natural oils is far more likely to help there’s
also an antifungal shampoo that can help kill those pesky fungus and it’s
effective for treating dandruff it’s called ketoconazole shampoo and it
can be purchased from any pharmacy now my top tip for anyone using this shampoo is
don’t use it like a normal shampoo so normal shampoo you
rub it in your hair smells great wash it off but with this rub it into your scalp
and leave it in there for five minutes before you wash it off that’ll give it
the best chance of working and as always make sure you read all the information
that comes with it so you can learn how to use it and also to make sure that you’re
suitable to use it now you may find that after a while the effects of the
antifungal shampoo begin to wear off which is why it’s important that you
alternate it with different shampoos to prevent this from happening here’s a
quick breakdown of the different ingredients found in shampoos and what
they do I think I’ll be useful for you to know as you can then tailor it to
your needs coal tar shampoos can slow down the skin turnover but it may
discolour fair hair salicylic acid shampoos can help get rid of flakes and
shampoos containing zinc or selenium can also target the fungus so there’s a wide
range of solutions that you can try but before you do so always speak to your
amazing pharmacist first so they can give you more advice and tips and to
also make sure that you’re suitable to use these shampoos so to summarise try these shampoos for a about a month to see if there’s any improvements you may need to
try a few different types of shampoos to see which one works best for you but if
you still see no improvement then see your doctor so they can exclude
any other potential skin conditions hey guys thanks for watching this week’s
