What is dandruff?

Listed as one of the most common scalp and skin conditions, dandruff is a familiar name that shares similar symptoms to dry skin and other common conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, scalp psoriasis, and eczema. Let’s take a closer look at the causes of these conditions and how they all differ: 

Dandruff: A type of dermatitis (seborrheic dermatitis) that is extremely common and develops from the overgrowth of yeast, seasonal changes, stress, and hormonal imbalances. It appears in areas like our face and scalp where sebaceous glands become inflamed.

Dry scalp: This condition occurs when your scalp is dehydrated and lacking natural, nourishing oils to help balance and moisturize your scalp. As an extension of the skin on our face, it’s fairly easy to recognize the tell-tale symptoms of dry scalp—flakes, itching, and tenderness—all of which are also characteristics that occur when the skin on the rest of your body is depleted of hydration.

Atopic Dermatitis: Commonly known as eczema, this chronic skin condition is triggered by your immune system and makes your skin red, cracked, dry and itchy. The inflammation from eczema can’t be cured, but there are ways to treat the symptoms with the help of a dermatologist.

Seborrheic Dermatitis: A very common skin disease (that is similar to eczema) that produces redness and inflammation due to an overgrowth of sebum and fungus that leads to abnormal yeast. 

Scalp Psoriasis: A common skin condition that creates inflamed, scaly, flaky, and red patches. In some instances, the patches can extend to the neck and forehead. 

Using our NEW Scalp Revival™ MegaStrength+ Dandruff Relief Shampoo Charcoal + BHA/AHA is a great way to fight dandruff, but it’s also a soothing and relieving treatment for all the conditions mentioned above!


What is Scalp Revival™ MegaStrength+ Dandruff Relief Shampoo Charcoal + BHA/AHA?

When your scalp is battling dandruff, it can feel like your scalp isn’t healthy or functioning at its prime for ideal hair health. On top of feeling like your dandruff is impossible to manage, dandruff can make sufferers feel self-conscious about their flakes. It may seem easier (and less embarrassing) to privately navigate the drugstore aisles and rely on home remedies, but sometimes those options are filled with toxic, harsh chemicals. Many dandruff shampoos contain controversial ingredients like: 

Coal tar: A popular, main active ingredient used to treat dandruff and psoriasis, that’s been linked to cancer and can cause irritation, dryness and brittle hair. 

Selenium sulfides: An active ingredient classified as an anti-effective medicine that relieves itching, redness, irritation, and removes the scaly flakes associated with dandruff. It’s also been linked to kidney and liver damage and can cause hair loss, an increase in oil on the scalp, and excessive scalp dryness.

ZInc Pyrithione: Known for its antimicrobial, antifungal, and antibacterial properties, this ingredient is frequently used to treat dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis and scalp psoriasis. 

Ketoconazole and climbazole:  Two common types of antifungals that balance the overgrowth of yeast and sebum on the scalp. High levels of these active chemicals are linked to liver damage, heart issues, redness, rashes, irritation and itching.

Why we added AHA + BHA’s to our Dandruff Relief Shampoo

AHA and BHA’s are having a major moment right now in skincare. Chances are you’ve seen these chemical exfoliants listed as ingredients in your favorite skincare products, but you may not be familiar with exactly what they are and what they do. 

AHA's are alpha hydroxy acids and BHA's are beta hydroxy acids that slough away dead skin cells. 

Lactic acid is another name for AHA’s. They’re known for their exfoliation and hydrating benefits and are commonly found in dairy products. 

Salicylic acids are a type of BHA that is a natural compound found in plants and works to prevent itching, redness, and irritation related to dandruff, scalp psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis. 

- AHA’s and BHA’s are praised for their anti-aging benefits, skin-softening properties, accelerating cell turnover, and removing oil, dirt, buildup, and dissolving dull skin cells. 

We’ve also added your favorite scalp-healthy ingredients from the Scalp Revival™ lineup: 

Binchotan charcoal: Detoxifies the scalp by drawing out impurities and absorbing excess oil 
- Tea Tree oil: Reduces flakiness and promotes a clean, invigorated, balanced scalp
