More people than you will ever know suffer from several different types of scalp problems. One of the most common is a crusty scalp. So hat exactly is a crusty scalp build up and is there a shampoo that will help or is there another type of treatment that you have to get to help get rid of it.
What Is A Crusty Scalp and How Did It Happen?
The crusty part itself is a mixture and this mixture can vary in exactly it is comprised of. However, most all have a large part of crystallized or hardened sebum. Sebum is what the sebacceous gland excretes to keep the hair and the scalp at a certain moisture level. As long as the flow of the oil is moving well most people do not have problems however the sebum can mix with yeast, drit, pollutant type junk or gunk, candida, bacteria and also different fungi. This is when the mixture can start to become a problem. When this mixture occurs you can often see the sebum balls on the scalp and in the hair. These can be hard and crunchy or they can be sticky and squishy. For many the sebum will form a white waxy coating on the hair and or on the head. It can also have an odor to to it that causes Smelly Hair Syndrome which can havea variety of odors inluding cheese, mold, mildew, sour smells and much more.
How To Get Rid Of Sebum and Product Build Up On The Scalp
The reason why most shampoos for oily hair and scalp or even clarifying shampoos don't work is because they do not deep cleanse the hair follicles and this is where the main problems hide such as the scalp fungus, scalp bacteria, candida or different forms of yeast on the scalp an other microbes such as mites. It is vital that you deep cleanse but in order to do that the hair follicle plugs also known as sebum plugs must be removed. This can be done with specialty shampoos but our favorite product is a scalp scrub. It does more that just exfoliate the scalp and outter scalp skin. It help to remove the hardened sebum build up that bloacks the opening where the follicle comes out of the scalp. This is vital since that plug prevents oxygen from getting one and also the trapped bacteria and fungus cause inflammation pinching the hair and irritating the scalp. But the most important problem is that it is never removed and can grow out of control. The crystallized sebum and hardened scalp oils have to be removed. This will not only help with scalp odor and stinky hair but it will create the healthiest environment that your hair needs to grow its healthiest and fastest. We have many people tell us that their hair is faster growing, thicker, healthier, less breakage and vibrant to name just a few that open and remove the clogged hair follicle openings.
Our #1 Choice to remove this plug is the Zincplex Mineral Scalp Scrub. We absolutely love this product and it is good not just for people but also for short hair pets. Long hair pets it works well for but you really have to make sure that you rinse them well.
