Anti-dandruff shampoo - especially for men
Anti-dandruff shampoo - especially for men

Why can medicated shampoo be male and female? Do not doctors prescribe special female or male antibiotics or antipyretics? Has anyone seen a pharmacy asking for special male antispasmodics? Hormonal drugs - which is natural - are divided into male and female. But is dandruff different for men and women too?

The fungal flora that causes dandruff in people of different sexes is the same, but the skin is different in structure.

Derma of men:

  • two or even 3 times denser and thicker than the female;
  • sweat and sebaceous glands are larger, there are more of them;
  • the level of acid-base balance is higher.

If women have pH from 5 to 5, 5, then in men from 5, 4 to 5, 7. Because of this, men are more vulnerable, and fungal flora of various etiologies is activated in them more often.

For the treatment of dandruff for men, it is better to buy a special medicinal shampoo, but sometimes a universal detergent may also work. The cure largely depends on the individual reaction of the body.
