Dandruff flakes can be frustrating and can knock your confidence and, yet, dandruff affects almost half the women in the world. Often dandruff is linked with excess sebum but it can also affect dry, sensitive scalps. If you have small, white dandruff flakes that tend to fall on the shoulder then you may have a dry scalp. Here we reveal how to hydrate a dry scalp and remove dandruff flakes like a pro.





What causes dandruff?


Dandruff symptoms typically include larger, oily flakes, oily scalp and red, itchy patches. These symptoms are causes by a build up of dead skin cells, over production of sebum (oil) on the scalp and Malassezia which is a yeast- like fungus.





How to treat dandruff


The key to treating a scalp prone to dandruff is to exfoliate with the right active ingredients and add hydration to replenish hair moisture. Our new Symbiose products are formulated specifically for this purpose. The range contains two active ingredients that help to eliminate symptoms of dandruff.



Salicylic acid

reduces scalp flaking associated with dandruff;

Pyrithione Zinc
