Men with dry, itchy scalp are a turn-off – poll
Issued on behalf of Dr. Wolff-Group by Leap Communications - Jun 26th, 14:10
Over 80 percent of women find men with a dry, itchy scalp a turn-off, according to a new poll.
And, men with the condition – which affects one in four males – say it’s embarrassing and agree it’s unattractive.
The survey, by market researchers, Beauty Bulletin, on behalf of Alpecin Hybrid Caffeine Liquid, polled 712 women, 81% of whom said men with a dry, itchy scalp were a turn-off.
In a separate poll of 268 men with dry, itchy scalp, 88% were embarrassed or self-conscious about the condition, while 96% believed it was unattractive. Only a third were using a product for a dry scalp with most achieving mediocre (41%), low (34%) or no (19%) success.
The findings follow surveys in South Africa, Germany, Hong Kong, and Singapore which found about 25% of men polled had a dry scalp and most were using an anti-dandruff rather than a moisturising product for the problem.
Global hair expert Dr. Adolf Klenk says dry scalp causes fine, dry, itchy flakes and trying to counter this with an anti-dandruff application may be exacerbating the problem.
“A dry scalp needs a mild, moisturising intervention such as Alpecin Hybrid Caffeine Liquid applied directly to the scalp or applied after washing hair with Alpecin Hybrid Caffeine Shampoo,” said Klenk, from the German-based Dr. Wolff Group which discovered that a caffeine-based formula helps counter hair loss* in men and women.

Ovens can easily accumulate grime from products that don’t do the job properly. In fact, if the wrong product is used to clean ovens, it can lead to unpleasant burning odours. As much as cleaning your oven is important, many products requires you to hold your breath or cover your mouth – as you try to keep those toxic odorous fumes away.
