How to Treat a Dry Scalp with Gallinee
The main symptoms of dandruff and a dry scalp are similar, however it is important to know that these are not the same thing and need to be treated differently. If you start noticing that your scalp is itchy and flakey, don't instantly assume it is dandruff: work out if your issue is actually a dry scalp.
Dandruff is caused by excess oil, however a dry scalp is caused by irritation and under-moisturisation. So, since they are pretty much opposites, it's kind of odd that the symptoms are so similar, right?!
- Look our for flakes on your scalp. A dry scalp produces small dry flakes whereas dandruff produces larger yellow flakes that are slightly oily.
- Check the rest of your body for signs of dry skin. Chances are, if you have other areas of dry skin, you are suffering from a dry scalp too.
To treat a dry scalp, you should look for hydrating, replenishing and protective products that are gentle on your skin. This is why we love the Gallinee scalp care range. These Gallinee products also keep your microbiome healthy. Your microbiome is the micro-organism of bacteria on your skin which creates a barrier that protects the deeper layers of skin cells underneath it.
"We believe that taking good care of the microbiome is the most important and underrated area in skincare and will help with most of the common skin problems that people face on a day to day basis, including a dry scalp." - Gallinee
The Gallinee scalp care range is basically skincare, but for your scalp. Makes sense, right? Why wouldn't we treat our scalp like we do the rest of our skin, especially when it can be so sensitive?
The range includes vitamin E and fermented rice water for their antibacterial and antioxidant properties. "Ultimately, a strong and healthy microbiome will help your skin to protect itself and stay in great condition. " - Gallinee

Traditional shampoos and conditioners may make you wash your hair more often due to the increased sebum production caused by ingredients such as traditional surfactants and sulphates. The scalp’s microbiome plays a crucial role in the regulation of sebum when unbalanced it can lead to itchiness, dandruff and even hair loss.
