scalp defends itself against micro-organisms and fungus
infections. The defense system protects the scalp against
all kinds of influences that it is exposed to. Sometimes
this defense system becomes weakened and a certain fungus
infection develops called Pityrosporum Ovale. This fungus
infection causes considerable cell multiplication. The
skin is no longer in a position to defend itself; the
scaling becomes rapid, and starts to gather on the scalp.
A superfluous cell situation mixing with skin sebum
causes dandruff to be formed.
Long working Détox System
The long working Détox System with its unique combination
of Piroctone Olamine, A.H.A. fruit acid and Salicylic acid,
not only removes dandruff but also prevents its reoccurrence.
What are the different types of scalp
Most people associate scaling with that of dandruff forming.
This is a great misunderstanding. We are now going to explain
how to recognize the difference between dandruff and scalp
scaling. People with dry and sensitive scalps should not be
treated with an anti-dandruff product. Dry and sensitive scalp
symptoms may be similar to that of dandruff symptoms but are
due to a moisture balance disorder. The scalp has too little
moisture and as a result begins to dry out and scaling occurs.
This can be compared to the same 'peeling' and 'scaling' experienced
after spending some time under the hot sun
The reasons for the moisture disorder are numerous, and could
be caused by internal as well as external factors
- air pollution
- calcareous water
- extreme temperature changes
- inexpertly applied perming and dying
- some products are harmful to the scalp
- vigorous brushing and using hot hairdryers
- emotional stress
- excessive perspiration
- change of diet
- hereditary factors use of medicine
The above mentioned can have the following
effects on a sensitive scalp:
- Red patches on the scalp
- A dried out scalp where by the scales
are small with a white color
- Hair pain
- Itchiness (also with dandruff)
- Tense feeling painful feeling
Where does dandruff come from?
We have already discussed the reasons for dandruff. A fungus
infection leads to cell multiplication on the scalp. It is
similar in appearance to a dry and sensitive scalp but has
its own characteristics.
Dandruff comprises of large scales of dead skin which are
yellow in color. With dandruff the scalp flakes/scales are
greasier. Dandruff displays no red edging around the scales
Dandruff appears in four places on the scalp
- on the crown
- at the contours
- in the neck
- behind the ears
People with dandruff experience itchiness of the scalp. Besides
this, their problem is very often an ongoing one. Dandruff
can be treated and controlled by using the DETOX system. This
system comprises of 3 products, which after use produce a
6-week long dandruff free period.
1. The treatment starts with a peeling.
The peeling is designed to remove the excess dead scales from
the scalp. It destroys the fungus infection that is responsible
for the dandruff and works against the formation of new dandruff.
The composition of the peeling is: Piroctone Olamine (anti
bacterial), Salicylic acid, AHA fruit acid, Camphor and Eucalyptus.
2. Wash your hair with a mild anti dandruff
The mild anti dandruff treatment for dry or greasy hair removes
and prevents dandruff from reoccurring in a gentle way. Dandruff
is removed in just 6 treatments. The formula for greasy hair
gives body and luster. The formula for dry hair gives soft
and shinning hair The shampoo's composition is made up of
anionic and amphoteric waxy ingredients.
3. Purifying lotion
The use of a purifying lotion prevents the reoccurrence of
dandruff and strengthens the working of the peeling and the
mild anti dandruff shampoo. The combination of these 3 products
means that the scalp stays clean, itch free and prevents the
formation of new dandruff. By using these 3 products you become
free of all the inconveniences relating to dandruff. The application
of these 3 products prevents the spreading of the fungus infection
and thereby giving dandruff no chance.
