Get Your Dandruff Under Control With These Products

Jun. 28
Nothing kills a look like those little dead skin snowflakes scattered atop your head and shoulders. It’s one of those things that’s made me self-conscious in the past. Mostly because people often associate dandruff with being unclean and not washing your hair. But sufferers of a dry, flaky scalp know all too well that even daily hair washes can’t curb dandruff. In fact that sometimes makes it worse.
A little digging online and dermatologists say that dandruff is caused by inflammation of the skin, caused by the yeast that lives on everyone’s bodies. Some people just react to it a little differently, causing a bit of an itchy mess. But back to the point, here are some of the internet’s top treatments to help you overcome the dreaded dandruff battle.
If you’ve ever been to a professional hair dresser’s, you’ve likely seen Kerastase products lined up on the wall. They are THE haircare brand that’s favoured by industry veterans. Their iconic products address a whole host of hair care worries and styling tools. Let’s just say they’ve pretty much been the experts since 1964.
Their Anti-Pelliculaire line helps with oily scalps and dandruff control in the form of a shampoo and treatment. The shampoo works to remove any impurities from the scalp, including visible flakes. While the Intensive anti-dandruff scalp cure supports by protecting your scalp and curbing the overproduction of oil. For extra defence, they also offer the Masque Hydra-Apaisant, a wet hair treatment that can be used in the shower, it purifies oily roots and soothes the skin on your head.
Created by famed hairdresser Oribe Canales, he has worked with some of the greatest heads of hair in Hollywood. His brand is built upon old school glamour with a touch of alchemy. The packaging says it all! Using the latest science, his anti-dandruff formulations not only rid you of dandruff but leave your hair hydrated and voluminous.
Try starting with the Serene Scalp Exfoliating Scrub, which helps to lift any unwanted build-up of oil, dirt, and lingering product. Using this once a week paves the way the Serene Scalp Anti-Dandruff Shampoo which is made with salicylic acid and caffeine. These two ingredients work in tandem to prevent dandruff and calm the scalp. It feels gentle on the skin, and this highly concentrated formula will leave you hair looking runway ready.
Using the science of plants, Phyto has the right approach when it comes to perfect tresses: a healthy scalp. They take into consideration the whole ecosystem of hair, scalp, roots and tips when it comes to their products. Their Phytopolléine is infamous amongst those who are in the fight against flaky scalps for its super potent powers.
This elixir helps to balance your scalp, whether you find it’s on the dry side, oily side or experiencing excessive flaking. It is made with natural essential oils that regulate and hydrate. An excellent overnight treatment for your scalp. If that fails you, look to the Phytodetox Mask, which specifically addresses all the environmental factors that could be affecting our scalp. Pollutants you don’t even think about like cigarette smoke, dust, limescale, hard water or pollution may be throwing your scalp off balance. This lightweight mask acts as a purifier that can be used once a week to reset your scalp.
Philp Kingsley
When you hear the brand name Philip Kingsley, think trichology, which is essentially a dermatologist for your hair and scalp. He was one of the first to encourage folks to fortify their hair through nutrition and over the years has made custom hair care solutions for silver screen elites like Audrey Hepburn! Although he passed in 2016, his brand is synonymous with curing problematic hair issues and instilling new confidence in people.
Their Flaky Scalp Cleansing Shampoo has not only won multiple awards in its time but is still one of their most sought after products. Its formulated for both dandruff and psoriasis and is said to be very soothing, quickly relieving any irritation. Ideal for daily use, it removes oil build up and leaves your hair with a beautiful sheen.
A beloved brand by dermatologists, Neutrogena is a staple in skin and hair care. Fun fact, the brand was initially called Natone and released a product called Liquid Neutrogena, a mild soap which helped balance your skin’s PH. The product became so popular, they changed their name to Neutrogena eventually. These days they continue to use skin-science to drive their products.
Their T/Sal Therapeutic Shampoo is a go-to for many. It helps with build-up control and flaking. Using 3% salicylic acid, this dermatologist-recommended treatment is affordable, clinically proven and can be used alongside other anti-dandruff shampoos. Netizens boast instant relief and say it doesn’t strip colour from hair if you’ve recently dyed it. A real winner!
Dandruff is never a one size fits all solution, but hopefully, these products will help get you on the right track. Specially formulated shampoos and conditioners seem to be a common fix, however, don’t neglect trying hair masks, scrubs, sprays and treatments like the ones above. Keep in mind that a lot of different factors can affect the PH balance of your scalp and hair, comment below and let me know which one worked for you!

Curology vs The Ordinary! Which is better?!
Curology vs The Ordinary! Which is better?!
Curology - Curology formula This is the first photo! Did wonders for my skin it was the best it had ever been since I started getting acne in middle school. Curology literally saved my skin, it was clear and great! (Over a year later) The second photo:/ I decided to stop using curology around 2 months ago and start using ordinary products. I decided to do this because I wanted to see if the ordinary could do the same thing as curology and maybe make my skin even better. This wasn’t because curology was bad or anything It was just something I wanted to test. I was pretty confident in my skin so I didn’t think it would be bad. I saw on social media how great it was so I figured why not? ... After slowly introducing ordinary products into my skincare routine to ( i used both ordinary and curology products together) I could see that my skin was breaking out more when I introduced the ordinary products. I didn’t think much of it cause I knew that my skin was just purging from the new products. After about 2 months of using both curology and ordinary products I decided to just try ordinary products because my skin was breaking out a lot and I felt that the ordinary would help it. (I think should’ve stuck with curology but this was just my curiosity about the product). ... (Now) I am on week 6 of using all ordinary products and this is what my skin looks like (photo 2) and I’m not happy with the results:/The first couple weeks I knew I would be purging, my skin was at its worst a couple weeks ago (week 3). But I figured that by now or next week my skin would be clear( the only reason I felt that my skin would be pretty much clear by now or next week was because while using curology all my acne was gonna by week 7). So I’m still trying to figure out if I wanna continue to use the ordinary products for a couple more weeks before I give up because it’s not giving me the results I want. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I don’t really know how to rate this because obviously it hasn’t worked for my skin very well but I’m not sure if it’s because my skin needs more time to adjust (it has been 6 weeks so...). I think that this product works great for some people but for me definitely not. Right from the start of using it, it broke me out and then once I only used this line of products it made my skin terrible. I also used The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Which didn’t do much in the 6weeks I used it. I did feel like it helped my acne a little. Overall I really did wish this line of products would help my acne and make my skin clear like curology but that wasn’t the case. This product line is definitely not for my skin. I’ll write out my skin care routine comparisons in my next post!
GRWM! New products and some old!
GRWM! New products and some old!
Hello everyone! I did another GRWM using some new and old products! First I started off with a primer. I used e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I was actually really surprised by this. It reminded me of Tachas silk canvas primer. It went on smoothly and did a good job of blurring my skin. I will say though after I looked at my makeup in the mirror up close it did settle a bit into my pores and my creases and was pretty noticeable. Overall I think this is a good product and will work for people with smoother skin. e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer Then I used the elf concealer. I love this concealer. I’ve used it so many other times in my other videos. WINKY LUX - Diamond Powder Foundation Then I used the winky lux foundation. This actually went on so nicely and was super natural looking. I love how it’s so weightless and decreases shine. I would recommend this for people with oilier skin. the CRÈME shop - "Macro Brow" Angled Brow Pencil + Spooley Then i used macro brow. This is just to fill in the last bits of my eyebrow to look fuller. It’s easy to use and has a great price point. I just wish the pigment was a little easier to apply. You have to push so hard. RITUEL DE FILLE - Rare Light Crème Luminizer My favorite brand of highlighters ever. Just so pretty and pigmented. All natural and cruelty free. An amazing brand overall. 💞 fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 I used a tinted fresh lip treatment. Love the way they hydrate and the subtle color it gives off. They also smell and taste really good 😂. Hope you enjoyed getting ready with me! Let me know if you have any questions about the products I used.

A Year in review!
A Year in review!
This year has definitely been a wild ride. I’ve learned so much more about my hair and skin in this last year than I ever thought I would or needed to know! All the way from using witch hazel and not paying attention to my curl pattern, to staying completely fragrance free with face products and staying away from harsh toners and paying attention to what my hair was trying to do! Using this app has really opened doors for me that I wouldn’t thought possible for my beauty process! I can’t wait to see what more years bring me, and us! Thank you @cherie!
