Say bye-bye to flakes and dry hair with these tips from Selsun Blue

Say bye-bye to flakes and dry hair with these tips from Selsun Blue

How do you feel about this story?


Nobody wants to deal with the hassle and embarrassment of dandruff. Dandruff is usually caused by a number of factors such as irritated and oily skin, dry skin, and most commonly a yeast-like fungus called malassezia that feeds on oils on the scalp. Scalp health expert Selsun Blue shares that there are many ways to fight dandruff and keep locks soft and healthy while doing so. 


One of the ways to do this is to include more zinc in your diet with meat, dairy, seeds, nuts, and eggs. Zinc plays a crucial role in promoting hair tissue growth and repair. It regulates the growth of bacteria on your scalp, and also reduces the oil that bacteria feed on. As a result, it effectively alleviates dryness and itchiness of the scalp. 


Modifying your shower routine can also have a significant impact. People with dandruff, for example, should avoid hot showers. Hot water on your scalp can lead to inflammation, resulting in dandruff, itchiness, and hair loss as hot water damages hair follicles and disrupts the scalp’s natural balance.


Even massaging your scalp using a circular motion helps reduce dandruff. Shampooing with a circular scalp massage distributes shampoo evenly across the scalp, ensuring a thorough cleanse. The gentle circular motion helps exfoliate the scalp, removing dead skin cells and any buildup of dirt and oil. 


However, many dandruff shampoos just leave your hair looking dry and lifeless, especially if it’s colored or chemically treated. It’s best to find a shampoo that is also kind to your hair—and Selsun Blue has the answer with its Selsun Blue Pro Extra Moisturizing Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. Best used at least twice a week, this Selsun Blue offering is especially formulated to get rid of dandruff while also protecting and retaining the moisture in the scalp and the hair for clean, soft, and revitalized locks. 


Selsun Blue Pro Extra Moisturizing’s secret is its active ingredients. First is 1% Selenium Sulfide, a US FDA-approved anti-infective and anti-fungal agent used to address the root cause of dandruff. It reduces scalp itching, irritation, and redness by inhibiting the growth of the yeast responsible for the infection. 


There’s also Honey Extract which moisturizes hair follicles, smoothing the hair shaft and bringing back shine and luster to dry and dull hair. Its natural humectant nature also locks in moisture, preventing future moisture loss. It also includes other ingredients such as Arginine HCL and Lysine HCL that add to the shampoo’s conditioning properties to leave hair clean and conditioned. 


Selsun Blue Pro Extra Moisturizing Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is now available in 120mL bottle and 6mL sachet at Watsons and Mercury Drug branches and online through the Mentholatum store on Lazada and Shopee.
