Colloidal Silver For Dandruff & Cradle Cap

It’s frustrating… those tiny white flakes falling from your hair or that nasty cradle cap bothering your new born. Luckily there’s a natural, non-chemical treatment for hair-related problems – and faster than you think.

Colloidal Silver For Dandruff & Cradle Cap

Dandruff is a common scalp condition that occurs when dead skin is shed, producing irritating white flakes. It is usually a condition of oily, rather than dry skin, and occurs as skin cells renew themselves and the old cells are shed.

Research shows that severe cases of flaking scalp, usually associated with seborrhea (a type of dermatitis), may be caused by an overgrowth of the yeast Pityrosporum ovale, which lives naturally on the skin. Dandruff can be triggered by trauma, illness, hormonal imbalances, improper carbohydrate consumption, and the consumption of sugar.

Deficiencies of nutrients such as the B-complex vitamins, essential fatty acids, and selenium have been linked to dandruff as well.  Dandruff is normally worse in the winter months.  Dandruff is an annoying and embarrassing problem, but is rarely serious.

Colloidal Silver For Dandruff & Cradlecap

Colloidal silver has been used for centuries to help remove dandruff and heal cradle cap. Massage approximately one tablespoon of Silverlab Healing Gel into the scalp regularly. You can also use the Silverlab Liquid in the spray bottle and spray the scalp.
