Dandruff is a common problem amongst both women and men, and it is something we often get asked for advice on. Here’s everything you should know about dandruff, as well as our top products!
What is dandruff?
Dandruff occurs when the cells on the scalp renew themselves too often. The older cells get pushed to the surface and show themselves as the small, white flakes that we know as dandruff.
How can I fix it?
The first important step is to find the correct shampoo. We have so many recommendations, but our current favourites are the Kapilixine Clean Sense shampoo and the Redken Scalp Relief shampoo – both contain exfoliating ingredients such as Salicylic Acid as well as soothing properties like Eucalyptus.
Along with using the correct shampoo, we recommend brushing your hair more often to avoid build-up. Dandruff occurs more commonly in teens/young adults, but it can also be brought on by stress and hormones. Being aware of the causes and treatments for dandruff could help in finding the right treatment.
Kapilixine is currently on sale for Black Friday, so it might be a good time to give it a try. If you do, as always, let us know what you think!

We get asked a lot of hair-related questions here at O’Reilly’s and one of the most common problems people have is greasy hair. Greasy hair can be frustrating to deal with, but it can be resolved with the right products!
What causes greasy hair?
Greasy hair happens when the sebaceous glands overproduce sebum. Sebum is needed to keep the hair healthy and smooth, but too much of it can be a nuisance. Greasy hair can be caused by hormones, improper hair care, unhealthy eating habits, medications or it may simply run in the family.
So, how can I fix it?
Firstly, you should investigate the cause. If it’s something simple like diet, you can always make small adjustments. You can also help your hair by touching it less often. We also strongly recommend using the right products for your hair type. We recommend Kapillixine Normalizing Cleanser Shampoo because it is a rebalancing formula, specifically for greasy hair. Kapillixine contains nettle extract and Cmc sulphate amino acid complex, both of which are great for balancing out the sebum on the scalp.
After using the Normalizing Cleanser, we recommend using the Kapillixine Golden Drops. These drops act as an intensive sebum-balancing treatment. Simply towel dry the hair and spread the Golden Drops evenly onto the scalp, massaging to aid absorption. Even better, it’s a leave-in treatment so you don’t need to worry about rinsing!
Greasy hair is nothing to be worked up about as it is completely treatable with the right knowledge. Let us know what works best for you!
