Dandruff

Dandruff can be caused by a condition seborrheic dermatitis caused by a fungus or yeast.

The more conventional way it is treated is with traditional antu fungal products such as ketoconazole shampoo.

According to Wikipedia: The Malassezia yeast is believed to play a role. Seborrhoeic dermatitis-like eruptions are also associated with vitamin B6 deficiency. My naturopath reccomends to take B6 with the superiior form P5P not higher that 50 mg at day.

Besides reinforcing the body with Vitamin B6 and zinc, an important factoris to lower the Ph of your skin with shampoo and other products that are more acid.

 

Here are the natural alternatives that have been proven to help the condition:

Organic Vinegar, organic  tea tree oil, organic eucalyptus oil,  organic rosemary oil, organic rose water

 

Consider natural doctors : Yin Yang Dermatology

 

Also cosider:

  • Eliminating inflammatory food: for Seborrheic Dermatitis they ususally are dairy and wheat (gluten). Try eliminating these two foods from your diet for 3-4 weeks.

  • A shower filter:  chlorine is a strong chemical that can increase Seborrheic Dermatitis by drying out your skin. A water softening system:  it reccomended if your tap water ishard. 

  • Whole home Water filter: is the best option. Before choosing the best filter you will need to test your water.

  • Spring water or distilled water to spray  to wash and rinse your hair and face.

  • Use only organic products on your face, hair and skin, free from toxic or irritants chemicals found in most skin care products, such as: sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, propylene glycol, PEG, DEA, TEA, parabens, and fragrance. 

TIPS: How to wash your hair

For the health of your hair you need to get rid of the scales: with your fingertips deeply and gently massage the shampoo your scalp without cratching your scalp.

In order to wash away the scales and flakes, loosen them with shampoo brush to help exfoliate your scalp.

Let the shampoo sit for at least 2-3 minutes before rinsing.  Follow with a light but thorough massage with therapeutic products.

Here are  list of products containing these therapeutic ingredients:

USDA Cartified Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

From under luna blog:"yep, apple cider vinegar. it wipes out this yeast like fungus, it’s really simple to use and affordable.
here’s how: put your ACV in a spray bottle, diluting is definitely an option (1 part ACV to 3 parts water). spray your entire scalp, really get in there. you may not smell great and sometimes there is a bit of tingling (not to worry). leave it on for 10 minutes or so, then jump in the shower. you can shampoo and conditioner per usual. hopefully you’re using warrior shampoo (because that does help). another tip that sounds counterintuitive - don’t wait too long in-between showers. this stubborn fungus feeds off the oils of your scalp and the point is to kill it not feed it. even though your scalp seems dry, you actually want to shampoo more frequently until there’s no sign of this fungus attacking you.
my recommendation is to do an ACV rinse once a week and take the ACV internally everyday until it subsides. then of course prevention and keeping a healthy scalp is always necessary.
remember what’s showing up on your skin is happening on a much higher level internally so if you want to get serious about healing it, less to no sugar/alcohol/gluten. malassezia will know you’re serious then!
