A close male friend has been struggling with a chronic form of eczema called Seborrheic dermatitis for years.  A skin condition that mainly affects the scalp and causes scaly patches, red skin and dandruff. Seborrheic dermatitis can also affect oily areas of the body, such as the face, sides of the nose, eyebrows, ears, eyelids and chest. According to the National Eczema organisation, the condition is more common in males.

My friend has a very healthy lifestyle. He exercises daily, has removed caffeine or alcohol from his diet and eats a balanced diet that includes many fruits and vegetables. This may help his condition but will not get rid of it.

As someone who struggles with Rosacea, I know that there is no magic formula when you suffer from a skin condition but the products we use are definitely very important , together with our diet and lifestyle. The products we use can make our condition worse (harsh detergents, solvents, chemicals and soaps) or help keep them under control. This was the case when my friend tried the Olsson Scandinavia Haircare. A salon performance sensitive haircare collection, suitable for asthma and allergy sufferers that will not trigger allergic reactions or cause irritation to your extra sensitive skin.

I offered the Olsson Sensitive Haircare duo (shampoo and conditioner) to my friend and waited for his reply. After a few weeks trying the product, this is what he had to say: “It is a very good product, it is transparent and cleans quite well. I have noticed less scaly patches and itchiness.”

In the past, some hair products he used, made his condition worse by causing itchiness, irritation and redness but he can now wash his hair knowing that the shampoo won’t irritate his scalp.

Olsson Haircare says they are “the conception of a 3 year development between salon professionals, chemists and allergy and asthma associations to create a no compromise, salon performance haircare range for those suffering with sensitivities”.

The technical hair team perfected the formulation through the testing of thousands of samples at their Danish laboratories, and salons across Scandinavia to fortify 100% product performance. Their haircare is “less likely to irritate or trigger allergies, it also is great for anyone who wants a high-performance collection that isn’t highly scented or crammed with additives, yet still effectively cleanses, conditions and renews hair and scalp with reduced risk of irritation”.

**This product was gifted but this is an honest review based on the opinions of someone with Seborrheic dermatitis who tried the product for a few weeks. He will keep using it due to the good results! **
