Quick Tip: Think You Have Dandruff? Think Again.

This is a topic many people are confused about, so I think it's about time we addressed it in our blog.

1. A lot of people (especially guys) think they have Dandruff.

2. In reality, what they really have is called Dry Scalp.

3. Dandruff and Dry Scalp are not the same thing.

How can you tell what you have? If your flakes are white, you have dry scalp. Dandruff is typically associated with oily scalps and the flakes are more yellowish in color.

If you have a dry scalp, white flakes, or just feel itchy, don't use dandruff shampoo. You don't need it. All you need to do is use a good, salon-quality, moisturizing shampoo. It will make all the difference in the world. You can shampoo with it daily; I tell clients to make sure they use their fingers and cleanse all the way to the scalp (not just on the hair strands).

For those of you that really do have dandruff, I recommend Exfoliating Dandruff Shampoo from Therapro, or Purete Anti-Dandruff Shampoo from Homme (L'Oreal Professionnel's line for men). You will be flake free in no time.
