About Elvive Anti Dandruff
Dandruff is an embarrassing condition that unfortunately affects most of us at one time or another. It can be caused by irritating hair products, washing your hair too much or not enough, stress, a weakened immune system, or a recurring skin condition such as eczema. Dandruff causes your scalp to become itchy, and the skin to flake off, leaving a ?snowflake? style dusting of dead skin across your shoulders and upper back.
The only way to treat dandruff is with a good anti-dandruff shampoo. There are many different brands on the market, all promising different things from prevention, to prescription-strength formulas, to everyday conditioning treatments.
L?Oreal?s Elvive brand of haircare products has one of the most comprehensive and effective lines of anti-dandruff shampoos and conditioners. It includes three products which were developed specifically for men (Elvive For Men Anti Dandruff Nourishing Shampoo; Anti Dandruff Intensive Shampoo; and Anti Dandruff Nourishing 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner); as well as a series of women?s shampoos (Elvive Anti Dandruff Full Restore 5 Shampoo; Anti Dandruff Nutri-Gloss, Anti Dandruff Colour Protect and Anti Dandruff Intensive Shampoo Treatment).
The active ingredient in the Elvive Anti Dandruff range is Selenium Disulfide, a mineral which is believed to have antioxidant properties and helps speed up the body?s metabolism.
Elvive claims that all its anti-dandruff shampoos and conditioners are effective from the first wash and most visible flakes will have disappeared within 4 weeks.
Despite their popularity, the women?s Elvive Anti Dandruff products have been discontinued in UK stores, but they are still available in Continental Europe and the US, and online.
