Dandruff 101

Do you have dandruff and don't know what to do anymore? Don't worry, you're not alone in this situation! There's no need to be embarrassed by this issue because it's much more common than you might think. About one in two people will face this problem at some point in their lives. But don't worry, we're here to help you identify and effectively treat both types of dandruff.



 As soon as you touch your hair, your dandruff falls like snow? You indeed have dry dandruff. They are often white and appear as small particles, usually resulting from scalp dryness. This type of dandruff is common during seasonal changes when our scalp is exposed to environmental aggressions.

Exfoliant is a product that helps to eliminate dry dandruff. It gently removes dead skin cells from the scalp and promotes a healthy scalp environment. It is recommended to use milder exfoliants to avoid irritating the scalp.

A shampoo designed to treat dry dandruff contains moisturizing agents to help soothe and hydrate the scalp, reducing itching and discomfort. It also helps prevent recurrence by maintaining scalp balance and providing an environment less conducive to dandruff formation.

When you touch your scalp, do you notice a strange texture and feel itching? You probably have greasy dandruff. The dandruff is often thick and yellowish in color. They stick to the scalp and create patches. Greasy dandruff can be caused by excessive sebum production. However, it can also be triggered by pityriasis, a microscopic fungus that invades the scalp and disrupts cell renewal. To treat them, regular use of an exfoliant and a suitable shampoo is recommended.

The exfoliant helps to deeply clean the scalp by removing impurities and excess sebum that are often the cause of greasy dandruff.

Shampoo for greasy dandruff helps to regulate sebum production on the scalp. They are formulated with active ingredients that help eliminate greasy dandruff by detaching them from the scalp and rinsing them effectively. Ingredients such as zinc, ketoconazole, or salicylic acid, which help fight the fungus responsible for dandruff formation, can be found in these shampoos.

When dealing with dandruff, our scalp often comes with redness and sometimes irritation. To eliminate redness and itching, it is advisable to apply a soothing treatment. After showering, a small amount of the treatment can be applied and massaged in to ensure proper penetration. It can also be used on dry hair, especially if certain areas of the scalp itch more than others. Serums have a cooling effect. For example, hyaluronic acid helps to rehydrate and soothe the scalp. In the Voir's Glacial Serum, rhododendron extract is included to rebalance the scalp and sebum production. Natural ingredients such as witch hazel floral water can also be found, which helps to soothe the scalp with its natural properties.


Some Causes of Dandruff...

Appearance of Dandruff During Seasonal Changes

During seasonal changes, dandruff is influenced by various factors. Fluctuations in temperature and humidity can disrupt the scalp's natural balance, thereby promoting the growth of fungi responsible for dandruff. Constant itching, visible flakes, and either oily or dry hair are all signs indicating this problem.

Hormonal Variations

Hormonal fluctuations can trigger inflammatory responses in the scalp, promoting the growth of fungi responsible for dandruff. During puberty, rapid hormonal changes can lead to increased sebum production, creating an environment conducive to dandruff. Similarly, hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy and menopause can disrupt the scalp's natural balance, leading to dandruff issues.

Excessive Use of Hair Products

Excessive use of hair products such as gels, mousses, hairsprays, or waxes can lead to residue buildup on the scalp, thereby disrupting its natural balance. These residues can clog hair follicles and promote the proliferation of fungi responsible for dandruff. Moreover, some hair products contain irritating ingredients that can worsen scalp itching and inflammation, thus contributing to the appearance of dandruff.
