What is dandruff?
Commonly known as Pitiriasi capitis, dandruff is a dermatitis that causes excessive scalp desquamation. It is characterized with unsightly flakes of white / yellow that vary in quantity depending on the extent of the problem. There are two major categories of dandruff: dry or oily. The dry type mainly affects male subjects and occurs in winter. Fatty dandruff, instead of generating furfuraceous episodes, is accompanied by the production of excess sebum. In this case the scales remain adherent to the scalp.
The causes are many, but the main ones are:
- Hormonal changes
- Bad nutrition
- Allergic reactions
- Presence of microorganisms on the scalp

How to make a wrap with aloe vera?
Aloe vera compresses to combat dandruff are easy to achieve, and they also provide good results from the first application. You can use the aloe vera gel as it is, or mixed with three drops of essential oil to perfume the preparation. A sachet of 10 ml of aloe is sufficient for application.
Helping yourself with a brush, spread the compress on the hair, starting from the roots, distributing the gel evenly. With your fingertips and gently, without scratching, massage the mixture over the entire length of the hair, up to the ends, and wrap the whole thing from the film. Leave the aloe vera wrap in place for at least 15/20 minutes.
After the necessary time, remove the film and massage the mixture again. Rinse with water and proceed to the usual washing. The treatment should be repeated once every two weeks.
