We’re back at it again: the rainy season!
This means dealing with strong rains and cold winds amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It also adds another challenge for those with dandruff. It gets worse during the rainy season. The rationale behind this is that the fungus causing it also flourishes during the wet season. The monsoon provides an excellent breeding ground for malassezia, a type of fungus that is most commonly associated with dandruff.
With our goal to find ways to resolve dandruff, here are some steps we believe will be helpful:
Stress triggers dandruff. Our immune system is affected during stressful scenarios or periods, giving dandruff more reason to flourish on our skin. Find ways to relax and stay calm.
Avoid fatty foods
Reduce chocolate and dairy, because it can cause an increase in dandruff production. Instead, grow your intake of foods high in vitamin B, green vegetables, proteins, and grains.
Get a little sun
Getting a safe amount of sun is a good idea because sunlight helps suppress the fungus. Take this wonderful advice but don’t forget to make your skin protected with sunscreen and follow minimum health requirements, as we’re still under quarantine.
Use the right product
You can also use some products designed to help dandruff.
For a more scientific approach, take it from local hair expert Ms. Carla Latumbo. She says, “men and women should look for a product with sage leaf extract as it cleanses and invigorates the scalp.”
Latumbo adds, “this product should have Quaternized Polymers that delivers strong conditioning properties, allowing the hair to keep its normal moisture.”
Both these ingredients are found in American Crew’s Anti-Dandruff + Sebum Control Shampoo. This also has rosemary to regulate the production of sebum, peppermint and tea tree oil to soothe and refresh the scalp, and zinc pyrithione to prevent itching and flaking associated with dandruff.
Labundo shares, “this may be the dandruff season but we also know that American Crew Anti-Dandruff + Sebum Control Shampoo is here to solve our problems with just three steps. Apply to wet hair, leave for 20 minutes, and rinse well.”
