MOMI REVIEWS| Dandruff no more with Selsun Blue

Jan 21, 2017 | Likes, Only Berlin

I live in a small house with five boys. And aside from their big appetite, I have noticed that they are always on the “run.” Morning rush hours, quick morning meals, and  fast hair fix. At times, they choose just to have a speedy wash up and sometimes, even missed conditioning their hair.

Perhaps it is for this reason that three of them have a sensitive scalp. White flakes are falling down on their shoulders. At first, I would encourage them to spend more time in the bathroom, shampoo their hair properly, and rinse it longer. All along, I thought those white flakes would instantly be gone if they follow my request.

The truth about dandruff

I have learned that those white flakes aren’t dried shampoo left because of improper washing. Those were excess skin cells that died and fell off. A yeast-like fungus called Malessezia irritates the scalp and causes more skin cells to grow. And this organism is what frequently causes dandruff, a chronic, non-inflammatory scalp disorder that is both annoying and itchy. Sadly, it is not only hard to get rid of Malessezia but the fungus is also capable of reproducing fast.

This makes dandruff a health issue that needs to be addressed medically. And it is important to get to the problem to know and apply solutions that can deliver results and make a difference.

There are many anti-dandruff shampoos in the market that provide relief to the annoying itchiness. Sadly, though, the itchiness will come back after some time. It is because most of these anti-dandruff shampoos merely wash off flakes. The fungi in the scalp remain.

The solution

Of the many brands of Shampoo and Conditioner my boys have tried, there is one that they truly commend. It is a medicated shampoo which is clinically proven to offer fast and longer-lasting relief against itchiness compared to other dandruff shampoos. Laboratory tests have also proven its effectiveness in treating dandruff and controlling its recurrence.  Its active ingredient, Selenium Sulfide, helps lessen the severity of dandruff, thus helping keep off flakes and itchiness.

The brand, which has gotten better since its launch in the market, has made a comeback in the Philippines this year. And more and more have noticed its effectiveness and improvement.

Selsun Blue to the rescue

Dandruff no more with Selsun Blue

Now available at Mercury Drug and Watsons outlets nationwide, Selsun Blue‘s new formulation has Honeyquat ingredient which moisturizes and softens the hair. Further, its hydrating effect makes hair soft and manageable. Its Medicated formula has added Menthol to soothe itchy scalp while its 2-in-1 variant has Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 to condition hair deeply.

The 2-in-1 formula is what my husband and boys are using now. And they all attest that this variant makes bathing easy by washing and conditioning their hair at the same time. In just one stroke, they can have a soft and smooth hair in a zip. And because of its dandruff-control formulation, it allows their scalp to be itch-free for the rest of the day.

They are yet to try the Medicated formula and are also positive of the same promising effect.

Dandruff no more with Selsun Blue

Problem no more

Again, dandruff is a health issue that needs to be addressed medically. It is important to get to the root of the problem to know and apply solutions that can deliver results. And my boys finally found a brand that brings solution and makes a difference. And that is Selsun Blue. Husband is all but praises to the effectiveness of the brand in treating dandruff and controlling its recurrence. He uttered one morning after his bath, “Selsun Blue attacks the root source of dandruff.”

See and feel the difference, too. It might be the solution you’ve been waiting for so long.

    This is the reason why my son always have “crew cut” hairstyle so it is easy to manage the hair. It is also easy for me to spot dandruff if there is any. I’m not familiar with the brand but I have tried other brand for dandruff.

    I’ve never had dandruff, but I used to get white spots on my arms when I would suntan. I was advised to use Selsun Blue on my arms, and it worked!

    Dandruff is so annoying, my scalp is really sensitive and I have a habit of itching even though I dont have dandruff. Do they sell this online and ship it internationally? I hope they do. It sounds great. Thank you for sharing:)

    I used to have a problem with dandruff when I used hairspray. Once I quit, it went away. During that aggravating bout, I used this shampoo and conditioner and it works great.

    We had a chance to try Selsun Blue as well during the past few weeks. I was really happy that the brand is back in the country. I have very sensitive scalp that flakes and itches when the weather changes. Was so happy that Selsun Blue worked on me. 🙂

    That’s good to know. Actually, this shampoo has been in the market for a long time. But, I didn’t bother buying and been using a different brand. Dandruff is really irritating, I have to try this when dandruff attacks and see for myself.

    Reply
    • momiberlin

      Yes, to see is to believe, Jerzee. Seriously though, happy ako sa effect nya sa boys ko. Effective talaga. It is the solution Ive been waiting for. Nakakainis kasi one time my son would scratch his head and then white flakes would fall off sa upuan. Nasabihan ko tuloy no manners ka.

    OMG fungus pala yun??? I mean, I’ve seen dandruff…my husband can only use one brand (and scent!)of shampoo kasi he develops dandruff when he changes brands. Kinikilabutan ako just thinking of the word fungus, waaah!

    It’s nice to hear from Selsun Blue again. Tagal niya nawala sa eksena ha! Pa-try ko nga sa asawa ko.

      Yes, heard of the brand before when i was still a kid ata. And yes, nakakakilabot na fungus pala cause ng dandruff. Haahhaa. buti I dont share pillows with my husband and boys. Hahahhaa. Bad me. But seriously, malinis na scalp nila and husband’s hair is soft na. Before super tigas talaga.

    I had severe dandruff when I was in high school, and Selsun Blue was the brand that I use. Helped a lot with my dry scalp.

    I never knew the cause of dandruff all this time, but I have seen firsthand how it can quickly turn into a terrible problem if not addressed. I can agree with the choice of using Selsun Blue tho, because it was my go-to shampoo back when I was a high school kid full of hair! 🙂

    This product is a necessity in my bathroom, I used to have excessive dandruff falling down my hair and it’s so embarrassing to go out. I also used to believe that dandruff is dried shampoo left on our head and what causes it is the lack of rinsing. I was confined once in a hospital and despite the numerous advice to not shower until I’m healed, I rebuked their advice because one day of not washing my hair already makes it winter time on my head. I need to shower every day to wash off the flakes! Eek! At least now I know there is still hope, thanks for sharing Selsun Blu, Berlin 🙂

      You are welcome. And hope that dandruff problem be resolved soonest. I fully understand your sentiments. I often hate my boys for not taking care of their hair only to learn recently that yes- those white flakes arent dried shampoo and lack of rinsing- but because of fungi.
