Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re experiencing dandruff or a dry scalp, a scalp treatment is for you. The right treatment will help to alleviate your symptoms and rebalance your scalp’s microbiome.

But how do you know whether you have dandruff or a dry scalp

People with a dry scalp typically notice small white flakes shedding from their scalp, while people with dandruff will usually have yellow-ish, oily and large flakes on their scalp and through their hair. 

Your flakes are more likely to be caused by dandruff if your scalp feels oily and there is intense itching, even when your scalp doesn’t feel dry or dehydrated. 

So, what’s the best treatment for dandruff or a dry scalp?

There are a few key products that will help restore your scalp's health. 

If you’re looking for a simple scalp care routine to get you started, opt for a specially-formulated shampoo and conditioner. 

Our Crown Cleanse Shampoo is crafted to cleanse and revive your scalp, while our Head Doctor Conditioner is a deeply hydrating, natural formula that nourishes your scalp. 

When you’re ready to level-up your scalp care, a serum and scalp scrub will help to keep dandruff and dry flakes at bay. 

Our Miracle Worker Scalp Scrub revitalises your roots and exfoliates dead skin cells. Our Crown Fix Serum then delivers hydration and relieves scalp stress after all of that cleansing.

Firstly, it’s essential to rid your hair-care routine of products containing harsh chemicals and irritants. 

The best scalp treatments will utilise natural, scalp-loving ingredients and stay away from artificial colours and fragrances.

At Straand, our scalp treatments are formulated with science-backed ingredients that have been proven to enhance scalp and hair health. They include:

  • DefenscalpTM: A powerful rosebay extract that rebalances the scalp microbiome and improves the appearance of hair. 
  • Panthenol (Vitamin B5): Strengthens the hair to fight against breakage and boosts volume. 
  • Jojoba Oil: Hydrates the hair, protects against dryness and split ends and nourishes the scalp. 
  • Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein: Improves moisture retention and strengthens the hair follicle, promotes healthier, shinier hair, reduces breakage, eliminates frizz and leaves a protective film that protects against daily stressors. It also holds anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe the scalp. 
  • Almond Oil: Nourishes the hair, reduces breakage and split ends, soothes irritated scalps and improves hair texture. 
  • Polyquaternium-10: Enhances volume in the hair and creates a beautiful glossy sheen. 

Everyone’s scalp is different, so unfortunately there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question.

Generally, a good rule of thumb is to use a scalp treatment (a serum or scrub) weekly to help combat dandruff or a dry scalp. When your scalp is healthy, you can use your scalp treatment once or twice a month to maintain your results. 

As for scalp-treating shampoo and conditioner, it might take some trial and error to work out how often you need to wash your hair. 

If you have severe dandruff or dry scalp, you may need to wash your hair every other day. As your scalp heals, you can wash your hair less frequently. 

We may be biased, but we’re pretty proud of our products here at Straand.

Whether you’re looking for a scalp-restoring shampoo and conditioner, or a full scalp treatment kit (complete with a scrub and serum), we’ve got you covered.
