Can An Itchy Scalp Cause Thinning Hair – What Are Treatments?

May 1st, 2012 by Scalper No comments »

The answer is a resounding, yes, but only if  you don’t treat the cause of the hair loss. The main reason that scalp conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, seborrhea, dandruff (both mild and severe), scalp acne, folliculitis and just a plain itchy scalp cause hair thinning and ultimately loss is due to the disruption that occurs inside the hair follicle.

Why Does Itching Your Head Cause Hair Loss or Thinning?
The answer is similar to the chicken and the egg concept. Which came first the itch or the inflammation. However, we can tell you that the answer is not important. The remedy is to remove the cause of the itch and the inflammation. If you do this then the hair follicle returns to a normal state.  The actual cause of thinning hair because of the inflammation is due to constriction of blood or food supply to the hair as well as the prevention of oxygen that comes in through the top of the hair follicle opening. The hair hair reproduction process is similar to that of a car  – it needs oxygen just as a car pulls air in through the air filter and then it needs gas which is the food supply that comes through a very micro set of blood vessels. If either of these is disrupted then yoo will have hair growth problems.

How Do You Solve This Problem?
The treatment is to remove the cause of the inflammation and remove the effect of the inflammation inside the hair follicle. 99% of the time – whatever is causing the inflammation is inside the hair follicle. It can be dirt, pollution, debris, sticky residue from hair products, hair gels etc. These make the hair follicle a breeding ground for fungus and bacteria. This bacteria can cause scalp acne, folliculitis etc. The fungus, malassezia can cause dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, seborrheic, scalp fungus in a host of other know type fungi including malassezia (the main culprit behind dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis). Malassezia fungus hair loss is probably the most common cause of hair thinning in women and very active as the cause of thinning in men. Do something to control this fungus and see great results!

What is The Solution?
Remember that using high ph shampoos is a sure way to lower the scalp’s defenses. This allows the viscious cycle to begin. The end the cycle look at using our Healthy Scalp Kit that includes the Zinc Shampoo, Conditioner and Scalp therapy Lotion. Together these 3 products are designed to deep cleanse the hair follicle, remove obstacles for growth, remove the causes of inflammation and stimulate blood flow to enhance optimal hair growth.

If the events are specific – such as a loss of a job then try to get past that and on to the next phase. For most people that cause of the anxiety or stress is not worth the amount of worry that we give it. We also strongly suggest relaxtion exercises to give your body and mind the calm that it is looking for. If you anxiety is generalized then you should seeking professional help. What has gotten out of the box – so to speak can be put back in. One of the best sites online to visit is www.anxietycentre.com for those that suffer from anxiety related hair and scalp problems.

April 16th, 2012 by Scalper No comments »

Scalp build up is exactly what is sounds like. However, what most people don’t know is that scalp build up is more than just build up on the head or hair follicle. It can cause a serious chain reaction that can result in numerous hair problems inluding dry hair, overly oily scalp and oily hair , hair breakage, slow growing hair, hair thinning in women and men, flaking scalp, dandruff symptoms, scalp irritation and redness and even hair loss in some people.

Scalp Buildup and The Problems It Causes

Before we explain why scalp buildup can be harmful it is important to note that both men and women can have scalp build up. It is caused by the numerous scalp products that we use but also residue from the environment itself are attracted to the oils in our hair and scalp and then trapped and filtered down in the hair follicle. The sebum that is used to keep our hair and scalp from getting dry can harden. These hardened scalp oils can become as hard as some sucker type candies. This impedes the oxygen process that the hair must have to grow properly and it impedes the hair and skin cell shedding process that results many different scalp issues.

Based On Hair Microscopic Analysis We Have Found That Over 90% of Women and Over 80% of men have serious build up at the hair follicle opening or even worse build up inside the hair follicle opening. It is vital to remove this scalp build up. However, calrifying shampoos do little to work on debris build up at the hair follicle opening or for buildup inside the hair follicle. The herbs inside Zincplex Shampoo, Conditioner and Scalp lotion are designed to penetrate deep into the hair follicle and cleanse then purify! The results are phenomenal based on customer testimonials. If you don’t do anything else this year use Zincplex products to deep cleanse and purify your hair of the massive build that can occur in a short period of time!

Scalp Flaking And Itching Head – Here Is The Solution

April 16th, 2012 by Scalper No comments »

Sclap flaking can be caused by several different problems. The best thing to do is to have a doctor dianose but here is a quick rundown on typical symptoms.

Oily scalp and moderate to severe flaking is called seborrheic dermatitis, seborrhea, seborrheic eczema.

Dry Scalp and Scalp Flaking is believed to be caused by a low moisture content in the scalp. This can be caused by exterior weather conditions, super dry climates and typical shampoos even if they are called moisture shampoos.

Scalp Plaques and itchy, red and flaking scalp. These are often called scalp sores. There are different causes of scalp sores including seborrheic dermatitis. One of the main causes is scalp psoriasis and scalp eczema. Scalp sores and flaking from scalp eczema are usually associated with a dry scalp just as body eczema is associated with dry skin.

Scalp Dandruff is also a primary cause of scalp flakes, scalp redness and itching. Dandruff is the milder form of seborrheic dermatitis also called seborrhea.

There are other causes of scalp flaking such as allergic reactions to shampoos, chemicals in shampoos, chemicals in conditioner as well chemicals in perms. Also heat appliances can cause scalp flaking.

What Helps With Scalp Flaking – Which Shampoos Work?

For years we set out to find the best set of ingredients that worked for many of the different causes of scalp flaking and itching. Zincplex is that product. The zinc is phenomenal for psoriasis and also for the cause of dandruff and severe dandruff which is called seborrheic dermatitis. The herbs are nourishing and cleansing. The ph of the shampoo is designed to reset the scalp’s natural defense as well as the scalp’s natural moisture level.

Zincplex hair and scalp products are by far the best for scalp itching and flaking. The ingredients were designed for a long term solution to scalp itch and flaking of the scalp – not just a temporary one!

Scalp Odor And Why Zincplex Eliminates It

April 16th, 2012 by Scalper No comments »

Scalp odor or Smelly scalp affects a lot more people than you think. Once you learn what causes your hair and head to smell you will see why Zincplex is so effective against the smells coming from your scalp and hair.

What Causes Scalp Odor?

99% of scalp odor or smelly scalp is caused by excess bacteria and fungus in the scalp. Typically bacteria is easily removed from the skin, however when it comes to the scalp it becomes a different story. Almost everyone has some buildup at the hair follicle opening but more importantly they build up inside of the hair follicle. This build can actually gather around the root of the hair. It can affect the growth of the hair, it can afect how easily your hair breaks and how easily it is damaged. In other words your hair does not grow efficiently when this build up is in place. What causes the scalp build up is nuermous. However, the main causes are sticky shampoo residue, chemicals, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, scalp lotions, hair sprays, hair gels and just about every other styling aid that we all use.

The problem with the build up comes when bacteria and fungus are able to hide away underneath the scalp build up – they can tuck down into the hair follicle and keep away from traditional shampoos, conditioners and scalp treatments to prevent these products from working. This is where specialty scalp products come in. A clariying shampoo is not enough to deep cleanse the hair root. Even if they could cleanse that deep they would still not do anything to eliminate the fungus and bacteria inside the hair follicle. Zincplex was designed to deep cleanse and purify. The ingredients are proven to be anti fungal as well as anti bacteria. And this amazing zinc pca is natural based. It is a super cleansing and purfying that no other set of scalp products offer – in our opinion!

We guarantee that you will smell the difference! And remember that Zincplex hair products are designed to be the long term solution with scalp rebalancing and deep cleansing!

Seborrheic Dermatitis and Hair Loss – Seborrhea

April 16th, 2012 by Scalper No comments »

For many people that suffer from seborrheic dermatitis they find that they often experience hair loss. The hair loss from seborrhea comes from several different reasons. The very first reason is that the inflammation that is caused inside the hair follicle by the seborrheic dermatitis. This inflammation squeezes or swells the hair follicle so that the hair can not grow properly. The result is an impact in nutrition that feeds the hair. There are many micro capillaries that feed the hair root. The nutrition comes through the blood which travels through the very small capillaries. With seborrheic dermatitis these capillaries are impacted against because of the swelling inside the hair follicle.

How To Help Hair Loss From Seborrheic Dematitis  &  Seborrhea Thining Hair

Remember that seborrheic dermatitis is a condition where scalp oils play a huge part in the condition. Many doctors believe that the excess oil is cause of the problem. While other doctors believe that the excess oils are the result of a self defense mechanism of the scalp where the scalp in a defense mode produces excess scalp oils to defend itself against bacteria and fungus. The same is believed to be true with scalp acne. Hair loss from sebrrheic dermatitis can be helped. Read more about the Zincplex products for seborrheic dermatitis, seborrheic eczema, seborrhea and similar scalp problems. Hair Loss From An Itchy Scalp is more than from just over itching the scalp!

Our belief is that does not matter which came first as long as both are handled! With Zincplex Shampoo, Conditioner and Lotion these two problems along with several other out of balance scalp issues are addressed!

1) First the bacteria and the fungus are addressed. Zincplex scalp shampoo is designed to open up clogged hair follicles that bacteria and fungus can get trapped beneath.

2) Secondly the herbs in the shampoo are designed to irrigate the hair follicle. This is a gentle but deep cleansing of the hair follicle. This is vital – similar to changing the oil filter on your car!

3) Zinc pca is an anti fungal and anti bacterial agent that is delivered in all three products – the shampoo, conditioner and lotion. However, the conditioner and scalp lotion deliver more of an impacting set of natural based cleansing and purifying ingredients.

If you suffer from seborrheic dermatitis hair loss, dandruff hair loss, itchy scalp hair loss or thinning hair in general then I strongly suggest that you give the Zincplex family of scalp products a good try! They will change your life as they did mine!

Anti Dandruff Shampoo? Which Ones Work?

March 23rd, 2012 by Scalper No comments »

We get a lot of questions about which anti dandruff shampoos actually work and which ones are not worthy. People also want to know if the anti dandruff shampoos can actually hurt the scalp. For long term scalp health many dandruff shampoo manufacturers state in their directions that they do not want the consumer using these shampoos for more than a few days at a time. Another main reason for this is that the shampoos lose their effectiveness when this occurs!

Anti Dandruff Shampoos Or Healthy Scalp Zincplex?

Everything from Head and Shoulders To Ketaconazale based Nizoral, Selsun Blue and similar state this as a recommendation. Zincplex goes about things a lot differently. Our shampoo is not targeted at the dandruff itself. Out Shampoo, Conditioner and Scalp Cream is designed to create the perfect environment for a healthy scalp. This is done by purifying and rebalancing with proper ph levels. The deep cleansing of the hair root is vital for proper scalp balance to occur. We do not know of another healthy scalp shampoo that targets this like Zincplex does! This is why the effects of Zincplex are so dramatic!

Scalp Acne Shampoo That Works Without Drying

December 23rd, 2011 by Scalper No comments »

A large percentage of people that are looking for scalp acne products on the web find our site. This is mainly because there are not a lot of good options on the market for those that suffer from scalp acne, head pimples or which phrase that you would like to call them.

This ingredient has been formally tested by Anjimoto company and the results are on the web. Zinc pca is anti bacterial, anti fungal and inhibits excess collagenase to name but a few amazing functions of this ingredient.

We feel that these products are truly the only products on the market that really work to create a healthy scalp and in turn healthy hair!

Seborrheic Dermatitis Versus Dandruff

July 24th, 2011 by Scalper No comments »

Seborrheic Dermatitis versus dandruff- which one do y ou have and how can you tell. The school of thought – and also what we believe -  is that there is a very specific fungus called malassezia – both malassezia furfur and malassezia globosa that cause both dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis as well as cradle cap in babies and infants.

So What is The Difference Between Seborrheic Dermatitis & Dandruff

The difference is the amount of the fungus that is present on the scalp or any other area of the body where the irritation, flaking and redness can be found. So basically seborrheic dermatitis is the severe form of dandruff.  Those that have mild forms of dandruff have less of a count of the fungus on the scalp. People that have the classification of seborrheic dermatitis have a much higher count of malasezzia fungus inside the follicle.

What Causes The Fungus To Grow Out Of Control

If you suffer from severe dandruff, chronic dandruff anywhere on the body such as beard dandruff, eyebrow danruff and even ear dandruff then you have seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis can affect the nose, the ears including the inside and the back of the ear where it meets the head. Seborrheic dermatitis can affect the eyebrows by leaving them flaking and itching.

One of the first things that you need to know is that the fungus feeds off of scalp oils (sebum) and sugar including and espcially fruit sugars. So step #1. During breakouts of dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis you need to stop the sugar. This includes raw sugar and high sugar items such as sweets, ice, cake, cangy and soft drinks unless they are diet. Stevia and a few other artificial sweeteners should also be avoided while in a breakout or if trying to prevent a breakout. Secondly, make sure to wash your hair daily. This fungus feeds off of the scalp oils! It is vital to make sure and cleanse your scalp and body (affected areas) daily. This will make a big difference.

Finally – there is a breakthrough ingredient for seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff. It is the magic bullet that kills 3 birds with one single stone. The ingedient is called Zinc pca. Remember that zinc is nature’s anti biotic. BUT this form of zinc is much more than that. It regulates the amount of sebum or oils that the body will put out. This form of zinc is also anti bacterial and anti fungal-  naturally. There are also herbs that help to irrigate and purify the hair follicle. This herbal complex along with zinc pca make Zincplex an amazing product. Our lotion also uses several essential oils for dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis including tea tree oil, neem and much more!

Yes These Can Cause Hair Loss

Seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff both cause inflammation inside the hair follicle. They also cause the scalp to emit more scalp oils. This is a defense mechanism of the scalp to prevent damage caused by the fungus or bacteria. however, the emission of extra scalp oil can cause more long term problems. This is because the fungus feeds off of the scalp. Seborrheic dermatitis hair loss or danruff hair loss or hair thinning can be helped by reducing the symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis. When under complete control you

Importance of Scalp Health

February 23rd, 2011 by Scalper No comments »

You probably don’t realize it, but keeping the scalp healthy is even more important than keeping hair healthy.  An unhealthy scalp can lead to all kinds of problems some of which include dandruff, itching, scalp disease, scalp pimples and scalp bumps.  An unhealthy scalp can also lead to hair loss which certainly no one wants.  The bottom line is if you don’t have a healthy scalp then most likely you won’t have healty hair either. 

So how do you take care of your scalp.  One of the most important things to know about the scalp is that it naturally secretes sebum, or oil.  The scalp needs some oil in order to be balanced.  The goal is to have a balanced scalp without too much or too little oil.  Using the right products makes a huge difference.  Stay away form chemical ingredient that leave hair overly dry.  Also be away of too many heated styling tools which can also dry hair and scalp.
