Got Dandruff? – Dollylocks Professional Organic Dreadlocks Products and Services

Hi, I’m Alin Leslie. I’m the creator and founder of the Dollylocks
Professional Organic Dreadlock Product Line and the Dollylocks Salon in St. Petersburg,
Florida. Today we’re here to talk about, “What is dandruff? Why does it happen? And why do some people have it and other people
don’t?” Well actually, dandruff is the shedding of
dead skin cells from the scalp, so on average, people are going to shed their skin cells
every 2 to 7 days. That’s why some people you don’t see that
they have dandruff, but they actually do. Everybody kind of has it, but the only way
that you really see it is when it’s prolonged and sticks around. So that would mean that your shedding is
only happening maybe every 2 to 3 weeks, or sometimes even a month. And what causes dandruff? The main cause of dandruff is dry skin, and
it can happen through weather or climate. But there’s also wet dandruff. There’s a lot of different elements that can
lead up to having dandruff like not cleansing properly or shampooing too much. Did you know that when you’re constantly shampooing
your hair, that you’re stripping away the natural oils that your body produces. The is called sebum, and sebum helps to lubricate
the hair follicle and to help the hair grow and maintain a healthy state. So when you’re washing your hair constantly,
you’re washing away that essential oil, and so your body is saying “Oh my god, I have
to produce more!” and it DOES. And so what happens is that your sebaceous
glands become overactive, and that can also cause dandruff. And just being sensitive to products or having
allergies. But there’s one thing you want to make sure
of – is that it is dandruff. Now I’m a cosmetologist, and I cannot diagnose
any medical conditions, and neither can any hairdresser. So that’s why you want to see a dermatologist
to figure out if it is actually dandruff. It could be eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis. It could be fungal. So you just never know. So I would definitely have a dermatologist
check it out. And the thing about dandruff is that there
is no cure, so the best thing for dandruff is to treat it. And you can treat it with a shampoo or a product. And that’s when I’m going to touch base with
the Dollylocks Products! We have this amazing little cheat sheet that
is available to you upon request. And basically, this just shows the ingredients
that we have in all of our products and why they are in there. And most of our ingredients that we choose
are to help with hair and scalp – actually all of the ingredients are! But some of them really help with dandruff. Like coconut water: it helps with elasticity,
hydration, and it is nourishing. Virgin coconut oil is amazing! Did you know that it’s full of antioxidants? And honestly – I’m not making this up, you
can look it up, it’s true! – but virgin coconut oil works better than any medicated shampoo. And speaking of shampoos, our Shampoo Bar
and our Liquid Shampoo both have virgin coconut oil in them, so they are going to help. I’m not going to say they are going to cure
anything, ’cause like we said before, there’s no cure for dandruff, but we can help you! Also, with our Tightening Spray – our Tightening
Spray has the Avocado oil in it, Jojoba extract, and so does our Conditioning Oil. All of these ingredients will help with dandruff. Like I said, there’s no cure, but they can
help. The oil is AMAZING! I actually use this to remove my makeup, but
we’re not here to talk about makeup, but it does work really good and it does help with
fine lines and wrinkles. But when you use this, you just want to put
a little bit on a towel, just dab it on there – you don’t want to use any cotton, anything
that’s going to fall apart because you’re going to rub this directly onto your scalp
or the area that you’re having issues with. And it works just like a magic eraser – it’s
amazing! So that’s pretty much it for today. If you have any questions, please reach out
to use through social media. You can contact us on Facebook, Instagram,
Twitter, and please please please follow us on YouTube because we love to help you, and
we’re here for you, and if you have questions, just ask us, we’ll make a video about it! Because we’re here for you. And that pretty much wraps it up! And if you would like a copy of this, you
can contact us and let us know. We are more than happy to help in any way
we can. And I really hope this helped. And once again, I’m Alin Leslie, and I really
look forward to seeing you next time. Thanks! Bye!

    What would you recommend for the lumps that form in your dreads as they tighten? I have had my dreads for about 7 months now and the lumps aren't getting worse, but I'd like to know what I can do to get them back under control, or if I should just let them grow out?
