Epidermal cells keratinisation is a natural process preceded by skin exfoliation where old cells are substituted by new ones in its deeper layers. This skin hygiene process is critical in keeping skin healthy, because it allows the skin to purify itself not only from dead cells but also from contamination and pathogenic microorganisms.
One of first symptoms of a scalp scaling disorder is dandruff. Around 70% of our customers are affected by the excessive scalp scaling to some extent.
Reasons for dehydrated scalp may be internal or external. External factors are hormonal imbalance and wrong diet. When it comes to internal factors we may distinguish staying in air-conditioned rooms, central heating, inadequate care, unsuitable cosmetics and hair coloring.

Appearance of dry white or grey flakes of dead skin on the scalp or in hair is a symptom of very common scalp condition called dandruff. It affects around half of the population at certain stage. New cells are created in basal cell layer (the deepest layer of the five epidermis layers). After some time they are moved into stratum corneum (horny layer - the outermost layer of the epidermis), where they overcome keratinization and become rejected. In this way, small, almost unnoticable amount of dandruff is created in everyone of us. When keratinized skin cells appear in large number they might stick together making them visible on the scalp and hair. Dandruff usually appears in small areas of scalp but it may as well cover the whole scalp. Frequently, dandruff itself is accompanied by scalp itching and in rare cases may cause hair loss. In more serious cases, flakes of dead skin appear in the hair and on the collar and shoulders. Looking with microscope at the scalp affected by dandruff we can clearly see that it is covered with scales and looks whitish. Bloody crust might be also present because of scratching of the scalp with fingernails or a comb.
Dandruff sometimes may be spotted in children at age of 6-10 but usually is present in adolescence. Moreover, this medical condition can affect somebody for the whole life. In most of the cases it affects more men than women. One of the important thins that should be done when dandruff is noticed is to improve one's health condition. Scalp needs to be maintained well, not only by frequent washing but also by combing and delicate massaging.
It is known that dandruff may be the cause of baldness. It is also believed that dandruff can damage hair roots which later in time can cause hair loss.
Many chemicals used in conditioners or hair dye lead the scalp into the state in which dandruff is growing easily. Huge range of shampoos contain surplus of free base. They have unusual strong drying properties and should not be used at any circumstances.

Seborrhoeic dermatitis is in most of the cases a chronic medical condition. It affects 2%-5% of the population, but is not contagious.
Seborrhoeic dermatitis is caused by fungus and the main culprit is yeast called Malassezia furfur. This fungus is present in everybody’s skin, however only minority suffers from seborrhoeic dermatitis. It causes itching, irritation and inflammation (redness).
Seborrhoeic dermatitits can cause permanent hair loss if untreated as the acids produced by the yeast demage hair follicles.

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that causes fast cell mitosis. Regular restoration process of normal skin cells lasts 28 days, but in those who suffer from psoriasis this process takes around 4 days. Because of the fact that scalp cell mitosis happens so quickly, scalp cells build up and create thick, silverish layer of scales on the scalp. At the same time inflammation of the skin causes redness and very often some kind of swelling that may be found on those parts of the body where psoriasis occurs. The skin inflammation is a sign that some cells of immune system became hyperactive. Psoriasis is, therefore, a combination of fast mitosis and hyperactive immune system.
Generally psoriasis characterises clear and harsh distinction of psoriasis outbreakes from healthy scalp. The outbreakes may appear on any part of the body.
In case of scalp psoriasis symptoms are very similar to greasy dandruff or seborrhoetic dermatitis; however the diseases differ in scales appearance. In seborhthoeic dermatitits, scales usually stick to hair shafts very hard, whereas in psoriasis they don't. In order to recognise the disease it is crucial for a trichologist to examine the patient precisely and to conduct a detailed interview (psoriasis can run in families and obtaining such information from the patient is important). A sample of epidermis can also be tested in the laboratory for yeast presence to determin the exact type of psoriasis. However, in most cases it's not necessary as psoriasis can be diagnosed based on the appearance of skin.
