Getting Rid of Dandruff in Your Hair: A Product Review on KeraCare Dry and Itchy Scalp Shampoo and Conditioner
I have really thick hair and I found out that I have a big problem. Dandruff.
I used Avlon's KeraCare 3-step System to get my dandruff under control.
What Is Dandruff?
Dandruff is an accumulation of dead skin. In most instances, dandruff is found at the base of hair on the head but it can easily spread to the eyebrows, beard, mustache, and other parts of the body where hair may grow. Apart from developing in areas where there is hair, dandruff also occurs on areas of the skin where there are large oil build-ups. For example, it may form behind the ears, around your nose and in the folds of skin.
Dandruff is caused by a quick turnover of skin cells. When old skin cells die, new ones are formed and the old ones are pushed to the top. They will usually just fall out or remain in the hair until it is washed away and they are not usually noticeable. With dandruff however, The skin cells are being replaced so quickly that the dead cells quickly accumulate on the scalp and are clearly visible.
How Did I do It?
To get rid of this accumulation of dead cells, all you need to do is wash the flakes out often, preferably with a product that will not make your hair too oily or leave your hair too dry. Avlon's helped me to get rid of my dandruff while leaving my hair feeling like it just had a million dollar massage. Of course that could be because of the tingling sensation and amazing smell.

It would be nearly impossible for me to wash my hair every single day, which is what most experts on dandruff control would instruct you to do. If I did that I might as well have postponed all my plans and come to terms with not having to do anything else until I got rid of my dandruff.
Instead of washing my hair every single day, I washed it every weekend if I could and every two weeks when I could not manage to do it every weekend.
Step 1: KeraCare Dry & itchy Scalp Anti-Dandruff Moisturizing Shampoo
What the bottle says you are to do:
The directions on the bottle says you are to shake before use, apply to wet hair and leave it in for five minutes.
I did it a bit differently but I still got what the product promised. It made my scalp itch less and flake less and it made my hair feel and look amazingly clean and healthy. It also doesn't make my hair tangled.
What I did:
- Before I used this shampoo, I used a regular shampoo to get rid of the excess dead skin that had accumulated on the scalp. You know the drill, lather, rinse,... wait, do not repeat.
- Leaving the KeraCare Shampoo on my hair for too long made it too dry as I had to use more of it to get my required results on my scalp. To prevent this, I parted my hair into sections and applied the shampoo directly to my scalp and not directly on my hair. That way the shampoo could work more on my scalp and spend less time romancing my hair.
- Now that most of the shampoo is on my scalp and not on my hair, I waited for it to work. While waiting I got treated to an amazing tingling massage of my scalp and a very sweet-smelling aroma filled the room. Ah, yes, it was that good.
- After five minutes I rinsed it out. (It might be a bit cold).
Step 2: KeraCare Dry and Itchy Scalp Anti-Dandruff Moisturuzing Conditioner
After rinsing out the KeraCare shampoo, I applied the Avlon KeraCare Dry and Itchy Scalp Anti-Dandruff Moisturizing Conditioner. It is quite a contrast to the shampoo. the conditioner does not smell as sweet as the shampoo. It has a strong minty fresh smell (that I love), and it does not tingle. It has a cool soothing feeling that relaxes you as it moisturizes and conditions your hair.
Leave the conditioner in for 15-20 minutes and cover it with a plastic cap.
The KeraCare conditioner made my hair easy to comb, detangled my hair and relieved the itching.
Step 3: KeraCare Dry and Itchy Scalp Glossifier
Using a ton of oil on your scalp when you have dandruff does not solve the problem. Having dandruff is different from a simple dry scalp. Using oils-based products on your scalp will only hide the flakes for a while then they will show up when you least expect them to a few hours later.They do more harm than good when you are dealing with dandruff.
The KeraCare helps to slow down the itching and flaking. It does not have a lot of oils in it so it does not weigh down the hair or make it gunky. It also helps to get rid of the flakes that are already on the scalp. Glossifier
I love the KeraCare Anti-Dandruff products because they are affordable, easy to use and they actually work. Some products are so hard to use that they actually state that they are to be used only by professionals. When you are trying to get rid of dandruff, visiting a salon everyday, every other day, or every week may add up to more than you can manage.
Using KeraCare to get my dandruff under control was affordable, stress-free, and I got the results I wanted.
