Orlando, FL - September 23, 2016 - More and more consumers are looking for natural ways to fight dandruff. One of the reasons why natural alternatives are becoming more and more popular is that many haircare products available in the market may be ineffective or even unsafe to use.
Aloe vera may offer a potentially powerful dandruff-fighting ability. White, flaky scales of dead skin on the scalp can be a cause of embarrassment, especially when they land on the shoulders at the most inopportune times.
In most cases, dandruff begins to appear during puberty. This is due to the fact that the body starts to produce the testosterone hormone. This hormone encourages the increased production of sebum in the scalp.
The sebum is an oily substance that offers protection to the scalp from microorganisms. While sebum works quite well for this purpose, there is one tiny organism that thrives on it.
Oleic acid is normally produced by such a tiny organism, and this acid is left behind on the scalp. It irritates the top layer of the skin, and this leads to the increase in the skin cell turnover. When these skin cells clump together, they become flakes of dandruff.
Another type of dandruff is rather a medical than a cosmetic condition. It is caused by a yeast-like fungus called Malassezia, which exists on everyone’s scalps.
When there are normal amounts of Malassezia on the scalp, it is harmless. However, dandruff develops when Malassezia levels go out of control. This form of dandruff is usually treated with a type of harsh, antifungal agent.
Many of the dandruff treatments available today may contain harsh ingredients, and they tend to dry out the scalp. There are many other possible side effects associated with the use of commercially-available dandruff-fighting products.
Aloe vera is an excellent alternative for individuals with dandruff problems who do not want to use commercially-produced items. Aloe gel has long been believed to be effective in aiding skin injuries as well as dandruff.
Aloe vera gel has a high potential to reduce inflammation, which significantly aids in healing. It contains a concentrated mixture of vitamins, minerals, and moisturizing properties that the scalp needs to normalize and free itself from dandruff.
One of the ingredients that popularizes aloe vera is pectin, which has special properties that serve as a type of cell cement. It has the potential to stimulate, divide, and grow cells. It is important to remember that healthy, fresh cells can also lead to a healthy, fresh scalp.
Aloe vera also has potential anti-fungal properties. Today, products with aloe vera are widely available in the market. One of the most popular products contains a combination of aloe vera and magnesium, which is believed to be a therapeutic mineral.
