Dan­druff oc­curs when clumps of cells on the scalp shed for var­i­ous rea­sons, such as dry skin or con­tact der­mati­tis. It’s one of the most com­mon scalp com­plaints around the world, ac­cord­ing to Mark Gariglio, di­rec­tor of Muk Hair­care. When re­search­ing a new treat­ment, Gariglio wanted to ad­dress the fact that many ex­ist­ing dan­druff sham­poos strip ar­ti­fi­cial hair colours and leave locks feel­ing dry. “We wanted to for­mu­late a prod­uct that not only con­trolled dan­druff, but one that also nour­ished the hair,” he says. THE FIX: NOUR­ISH­ING SHAMPOO The new Muk Hair­care Head Muk Dan­druff Con­trol Shampoo ($ 24.95, 1300 768 264) con­tains botan­i­cal ex­tracts to calm an ir­ri­tated scalp and nour­ish the hair. with an­tiox­i­dants can re­duce some of the dam­age.
