A dandruff pill exists: here’s what you need to know
If we told you that you can cure dandruff with a vitamin, would you believe us? People with dandruff know how painful this chronic disease can be. Whether it’s worrying about wearing a dark t-shirt or being generally embarrassed in any situation, dandruff isn’t fun. Even the remedies seem too medical. Shampoos that actually work (the drugstore ones that deal exclusively with dandruff) smell like there’s a problem. Perhaps the most annoying thing about dandruff is that it doesn’t go away; it needs to be managed, and that means a long relationship with the aforementioned drugstore shampoo. However, if Loma Lux Laboratories has something to add to the conversation, thinking about dandruff is as easy as taking a vitamin in the morning. We spoke with Gerti Mortelli, Laboratory Director, about her team’s dandruff pill, the first of its kind to naturally eliminate dandruff.
The origin of the dandruff pill
the Loma Lux anti-dandruff pill was born out of need. The founder of the company’s dermatologist, Stephen A. Smith, MD initially developed natural skin health solutions for inflammatory skin diseases in response to requests from his patients for more natural, less toxic alternatives to traditional medicines. to relieve acne, dandruff, eczema and psoriasis, Gerti actions. The scalp is indeed hypersensitive skin, and acne, eczema, dandruff, and psoriasis are all considered inflammatory skin conditions.
“Dr. Smith had previously developed the Loma Lux acne pill, eczema and psoriasis pill using natural minerals which are taken orally to cleanse the skin / scalp from the inside out. Oral homeopathic medicines stimulate the body’s own healing response. Since Dr Smith suffers from dandruff / seborrheic dermatitis, his next challenge was to create a natural alternative to the traditionally aggressive topical dandruff treatments on the market. He first experimented with experimenting with dandruff / seborrheic dermatitis. several formulations on itself. When he achieved remission, Loma Lux Dandruff Pill was born. It contains seven all-natural minerals that encourage the body to disrupt the cycle of cell production too fast, resulting in dandruff, scalp dry, itchy scalp and an oily scalp. The scalp will begin to heal. It is registered with the FDA and is manufactured in United States at an FDA inspected facility using good manufacturing practices, ”she said.
What makes the dandruff pill unique
Dandruff is a very common skin condition that affects over 50 million Americans, so there is huge potential for this pill to really make a difference in so many lives. There are a few common causes of dandruff / seborrheic dermatitis, including growth of yeast (Malassezia) on the scalp, dry skin, irritated oily scalp, not washing regularly / properly, and sensitivity to skin products. hair care. “A healthy scalp regenerates new skin cells usually every 23 to 30 days. In the case of dandruff, the process speeds up, with rapid cell turnover creating flakes of dandruff. There is no cure for dandruff, but luckily the dandruff pill will help relieve symptoms without the harsh, stinky chemicals of traditional topical dandruff treatments, ”Gerti continues.
Gerti attributes the fact that there has not yet been a non-topical anti-dandruff treatment to a lack of thinking outside the box. “Companies are more used to trying to improve on traditional topical dandruff treatments from their competitors,” she says. Gerti notes that the Loma Lux dandruff pill is an oral homeopathic medicine that works holistically to rebalance the body’s own healing response. The seven active ingredients are natural minerals and are based on traditional homeopathic practice. Because it works internally and is not applied topically, it will not irritate the scalp or damage hair / hair color. The pill is also lactose free, gluten free and vegan.
How to use the pill
The dandruff pill is taken daily and works gradually. Dandruff should go away after 12 weeks of use, but it should be taken regularly to help prevent future recurrences.
Although the results depend on the severity of the dandruff, some people notice less itching during the first week; for others, it takes four to six weeks to start seeing results. Although the dandruff pill takes a long time to work, it works faster than hair regrowth supplements, which can take up to six months of regular use to see a difference.
The pill is not a single treatment: if you stop taking it, the symptoms will return.
Gerti argues that the pill is a less messy way for people with dandruff to use their favorite hair products again without worrying about being scaly. “The advantage of using the dandruff pill is that you can use your favorite hair care products instead of dandruff treatments. Dandruff shampoos aren’t all the same, so most people continually experiment to find a product that’s right for them. As most people who have tried dandruff shampoos know, the active ingredients can be very harsh on the scalp and the hair itself. That stinky rotten egg smell of some shampoos lasts long after shampooing. Additionally, some formulas can bleach the hair or damage the hair. With the dandruff pill, you can use any dandruff free hair care product you want for great looking and healthy hair. Even natural dandruff treatments like tea tree oil and apple cider vinegar can irritate the scalp, and who wants their hair to smell like dressing? It is also a great alternative for people who (due to dry scalp or braids) cannot wash their hair often or regularly; it relieves dandruff symptoms and helps promote a healthy scalp.
