Homoeo call A clean scalp is the only answer to dandruff-free hair
A bouncy hair is a matter of pride but can be ruined by a flaky scalp that signifies an inflammation of the layer of skin that can spread to other areas of the body.
Dandruff as it is commonly termed as, is a deterrent to social confidence. As such the skin cells are scraped away at regular intervals by the body as the new one takes over the job of touch, feel and protection from external influences including infective agents. But either due to a fungal infection or simply an over-reaction of the immune system the skin cells are formed in increased number in a particular area of the body. Even as the healthy cells are on the surface the newer cells push over those and the exfoliation of the cells appears as a flaky and scaly appearance called as Seborrhoea or usually called as dandruff. There could be itching associated with it and the newer increasing areas over the scalp adds to the irritation. Psoriasis is another condition which could mimic seborrhoea in the starting stages as it spreads from the scalp to the other areas of the body.
Homoeopathic medicine has good remedies for such a condition. The inflammation associated with the skin layer is soothed by remedies like Selenium, Antim crud , Silicea etc. while the overt immune response is modulated by simple medicines like Ars alb, Phos, Thuja, Psorinum, Bacillinum etc. and flakiness of the skin layer is scraped away gently to initiate healing of the lower layers with medicines like Natrum mur, Sepia, Kali sulph etc. To regain the confidence in the social milieu and banish dandruff blushes, Homoeopathy is a sure remedy.
