flaky scalp: dandruff or dry skin?
What are those flakes on your scalp and what can you do to get rid of them? Don’t sweat it: if you experience flakes on your scalp or in your hair, you are not alone. Many people assume when they see white flakes in their hair that it is something called dandruff. Dandruff is a microbial contamination on the scalp that causes these flakes to occur. To deal with dandruff you need to use a specialized dandruff shampoo made to fight off the contamination.
But, what most people don’t realize is that the majority of flakey hair is actually caused by a dry scalp. This can be the result of over-washing hair, scrubbing your head harshly, or using a very strong cleanser to combat oily hair, amongst other things. To solve the dryness that causes flakes all you need is a shampoo that conditions your hair while it cleans. recurrent’s 2:1 shampoo + body wash uses an effective, but not harsh, cleanser with a moisturizing agent to combat hair flakes.
Our conditioning shampoo is meant to help all cases of dry scalp and get rid of pesky flakes, but if the flakes persist after using our conditioning shampoo you may need to try one made specifically to treat dandruff.
