THE PROPERTIES OF GALANGAL
The appearance of dandruff is the result of an abnormal shedding of epidermal cells on the scalp. Cells multiply too quickly and do not allow time for dead cells to be eliminated as they grow. This phenomenon is reinforced by an imbalance in the microbiome of the scalp and by the proliferation of Malassezia fungi which causes inflammation and irritation.
This is where Galangal (Alpinia Galangal) comes in: it is renowned in traditional Chinese medicine for its purifying and soothing properties . This natural fungicide will rebalance, purify the scalp and help eliminate dandruff. Your hair will be free of dandruff.
