Regardless of the season, shampoos with irritating ingredients and diseases such as neurodermatitis or skin fungus are also to blame for dandruff and co. In addition, the skin increasingly dries out with age. What is happening? The protective layer of the scalp consists of horn cells and lipids (fats). If this is damaged and permeable, the skin loses moisture and is less protected against external influences. However, the scalp can not only dry out, but also become oily - the cause of this can be an overproduction of the sebum glands.


If you cannot rule out allergies or skin diseases, you should consult a dermatologist to clarify the cause. If skin diseases or allergies can be ruled out, an analysis at the hairdresser's can also help. The hair care is then tailored to the skin.


You can also give a dry scalp peace of mind with these tricks: Wash your hair less often and only with a hazelnut-sized blob of shampoo. Use gentle care with mild ingredients such as aloe vera or chamomile. Plus: it's best to let the mane air dry! If blow-drying is unavoidable, dry the hair on a low setting and at least 20 centimeters away from the head. A scalp with good circulation also makes it healthier: Massage it regularly with your fingers and wash your hair upside down. And if you swear by home remedies: Boil 150 grams of dried nettle leaves, 1/8 liter of vinegar and 3/4 liter of water, allow to cool, strain and fill into a bottle. Massage in after shampooing and do not rinse.
