Whether dry or greasy, on our shoulders or at our roots, a flaky scalp can be a real problem... We want to get rid of them as soon as they appear. Good news for you: we have some tips on how to take them out!
Focus on a balanced diet to support your microbiome! Focus on sources of vitamin A (eggs, dairy products) to slow down scalp flaking, vitamin E (oily fish, hazelnuts, almonds) to boost circulation, vitamin B6 (wholegrain cereals, salmon, bananas) for cleansing properties, and trace elements such as sulphur and selenium. Whether right on the plate or through a food supplement, the choice is up to you.
Caps, hats and beanies can definitely finish a look. But they also unfortunately prevent your hair and scalp from breathing! A suffocated scalp is a terrain that can get out of control, facilitating the appearance of flakes. The same applies to styling products such as gels, hairsprays or sprays. So, let's leave all of these things on the shelf while we get back on track.
Certain essential oils can help your scalp to get back on track and put a stop to flakes. Tea tree purifies, eucalyptus has a fierce cooling effect rosemary cineole is a hard-hitting antibacterial, and sage is outstanding at reducing sebum. You can mix them (not all at once!) with a vegetable oil for a fingertip massage, or add a few drops to your shampoo. But before you get to mixing like an expert chemist, be sure to ask a specialist for advice.
Start with a quick analysis to determine your flake type. Are your flakes dry and white, falling away on their own; or are they greasy and yellowish, only coming off when you scratch or brush your hair? Choose your products accordingly! The treatment mask and the shampoo from our new range with galangal, an active ingredient 4x more effective, is perfect for all types of flaky scalps!
Your hair dryer can wait, trust us. Heat dries out the scalp, which increases its sebum in order to protect itself, thus encouraging the appearance of flakes. Try to space out your blow-drying: let your hair air dry as much as possible, and if you really need to dry it with more than just a towel, move the appliance at least 30 cm away from your head and use cool air.
The use of an anti-dandruff shampoo, while very effective on the surface of the scalp and at the roots, tends to damage the lengths and ends of the hair. To counteract these effects, consider moisturising them with an oil, for example. Also, space your shampoos at least 2 to 3 days apart so as not to over-stimulate your scalp, which would cause even more flakes to be produced!
