Incessant scratching, irritation and white flakes on your shoulders – there’s nothing quite as embarrassing, or annoying, as a flaky scalp.
“The scalp gets dry and itchy for many reasons – genetics, environment (dry air), hormones, stress and irritants such as malassezia yeast to name a few common ones,” says Daniel Mullette, R&D Expert Unilever Hair care. “One or many of these reasons can lead to flakiness, itchiness and irritation as the most common symptom.”
What most people don’t know, is that we need to take care of the skin on our scalp in the same way we take care of facial or body skin.
“The scalp is the foundation for healthy hair, and you need to take care of scalp skin in the same way we take care of facial or body skin.
“Once the skin barrier becomes compromised, it tries to recover by shedding skin cells, accelerating a normal process. The more compromised the barrier becomes, the more it tries to recover and leads to further irritation.”
So if you’re prone to a flakey scalp, what’s the best way to manage it?
“Shampoo regularly with a mild shampoo that takes care of skin’s functional barrier,” Danielle advises. “If you suffer from flakey scalp then Clear Scalp Therapy for Men will deliver noticeable, long-lasting control and care for your scalp.”
“It contains Nutrium Max 10 that has been scientifically proven to nourish skin’s surface layers with skin-natural lipids, helping to maintain the condition of scalp skin and avoid the cycle of irritation and excess oil.”

: Dandruff symptoms are caused by a number of factors, however one of the most common ones is a fungal infection of malassezia that irritates the scalp. Men with dandruff experience symptoms such as oilier flakes, irritation, itching and even redness, whereas men with dry scalp typically experience less complex symptoms such as dry flakes, tightness and some sensitivity.
