Dandruff, or pythiriasis, is a condition due to an acceleration of the cellular turnover, which, instead of lasting 4 weeks, takes place over the space of just a few days, resulting in the formation of small whitish scales all over the scalp. These small scales, dry and pearly, are simply the remains of dead cells, the replacement of which occurs more rapidly than normal. Although this presents an aesthetic problem, not a true illness, dandruff affects one third of the adult population. The most varied hypotheses have been advanced for its appearance; but it seems to be due to poor hygiene of the scalp and to the use of unsuitable cleansing soaps, as well as to aggressive treatments and/or environmental factors such as pollution and dust. In fact, although some of these elements may effectively contribute toward the acceleration of dandruff, most likely they do not represent the principal cause. Indeed, in many cases the real culprit is a fungus called Malassezia furfur (also known as Pityrospum), which lives on the scalp of most people without causing any bother. Problems start when colonies of this fungus become too numerous and, nourishing themselves on the sebum which degrades into irritating fatty acids, accelerates the epidermic cell renewal. Dandruff may be distinguished in two categories: dry and greasy. · Dry dandruff is characterized by fine, dry, gray scales, resulting in aesthetic problems (the typical "snow on the collar"). It is accompanied by itching, but is devoid of any special signs of skin irritation. · Greasy dandruff is characterized by fat-soaked scales which adhere to the scalp. Quite frequently, this aesthetic problem is accompanied by itching and red coloring, which may degenerate into real pathologies such as seborrhea dermatitis.

ANTI-DANDRUFF SHAMPOO The Anti-Dandruff Shampoo from the Cute & Capelli line is a product specifically formulated for scalps affected by dandruff (both greasy and dry), or prone to imbalances and frequent scaling. Technology - Thanks to the extract of Chondrus Crispus (a red algae which grows in the temperate waters of both sides of the Atlantic coasts), and to Piroctone Olamine (a very selective anti-fungus which operates only on Malassezia, not on all the bacterial flora of the skin), there is a notable antiseptic and hydrodermic purifying action. What is more, the lack of SLES and SLS, favoring the use of components of natural origin, reduces to a minimum the risk of allergies, making this product perfectly tolerable to the skin, respecting the PH of the mucous membranes and not altering the normal bacterial flora present on the scalp.


USE: rub it directly over the pre-washed scalp, massaging delicately with the fingertips in circular movements, until the skin has been well cleansed. Rinse. Repeat if necessary.
