Self-Treatment for Dandruff

A Common Misconception
You will find a lot of people talking about different causes of dandruff and how severe they can be to our hair health. Here are some of the most common agents which are considered as causes of dandruff.
- Dry or dirty scalps
- Oily scalp
- Cold weather
First off, let me break it to you. None of these are actual causes of dandruff. In fact, they all contribute to the problem getting severer with time.
What’s the cause then
When you go to a hair treatment and ask a professional about the cause, they will generally come up with one answer. Malassezia, a yeast-like fungus is known to cause dandruff in our scalps. It is actually a part of our scalp and in normal conditions it is a contributor to a healthy skin.
However, as it feeds off the oil from the follicles, it can sometimes grow uncontrollably. Hence the scalp tries to maintain the balance by shedding more skin cells than normal. Dandruff is produced as a result.
If the situation gets too serious and you experience too much dandruff, it is suggested to seek help from professionals. There are more ways for scalp treatment than you might think. We, at PHS HAIRSCIENCE, offer reliable scalp treatment, including a proper hair and scalp analysis to take care of this issue.
After you reserved your place for our exclusive dandruff treatment, follow these instructions for maximum protection:
- Use Coconut Oil:
Coconut oil acts as a great anti-fungal which works well against dandruff too. Using coconut oil once a day will have great effects on your scalp and in time, your scalp will experience the effects of the difference. Another alternative is to use argan oil.

- Avoid Heat:
Taking excessively hot showers on a daily basis may strip your scalp of its natural oils causing your scalp to be dry, irritated and unbalanced. The warm and wet environment would become an agent for fungus and bacteria to cultivate. Hence, it is better to avoid hot showers and blow drying your skin. We suggest taking cold showers instead to reduce dandruff and hair fall.
