Biggest Scalp Problem? It’s Hairfall and Dandruff!

Majority of the problems on scalp involve hairfall and dandruff! Here’s how you can find a solution!

Metro was in for a big surprise when we interviewed Dove’s resident aesthetic dermatologist Dr. Carmela Pescante-Monterola or Dr. Nina who was invited to Metro’s Office Takeover last March 19 at the Newport World Resorts in Pasay City. 


Over 300 guests were treated to an unforgettable afternoon of beauty, wellness, and style. The Metro Office Takeover is a series of office visits that cater to real women—sharing with them insider talks that cover tips, tricks, and valuable lessons across beauty, skincare, wellness and stress management, and personal fashion and style.

Presented by Dove and Unilever Beauty and Wellbeing, the program was filled with nuggets of wisdom today's women and men need to hear. Present at the event was a Dove Dermacare Scalp Clinic where guests were able to have their scalp health checked by a doctor, addressing some of the most pressing concerns in hair today, such as hairfall, and dandruff. 


Of course, Dr. Nina was the highlight of this booth, because she handled the Dove Dermacare Scalp Clinic scalp analysis. She shares the process of engaging clients in the booth.

Step One: Dr. Nina checks and analyzes the condition of client’s scalp using the scalp examination tool.

Step Two: She takes a magnified image of the actual scalp condition and compares it to a healthy scalp. 

Step Three: Finally, she gives haircare and product recommendations to lead to a healthier scalp!


“It might seem normal to the eye, but once we use this device, we can see those problem areas properly,” she says.

Now what she shared is quite a surprise for many, because the two big problems are usually dandruff and hairfall.

“This is my second time doing the Dove Dermacare Scalp Clinic and 90% of the time, the problems are dandruff and hairfall,” she says. She adds that only around 5% have normal scalps upon examination, a figure that shocked her, and the Metro team as well.


Thankfully there are two products that she shared with us: Dove Dermacare Scalp Soothing Moisture Shampoo with Olacare Scalp Actives. Dove's scalp and skincare actives give you up to 3x scalp hydration and a 2x stronger scalp that's resistant to dandruff.


This product relieves and soothes the itch that dandruff gives, plus hydrating dry scalp. It’s gentle enough to be used every day and is great for smooth, touchably soft hair. 

The next product is Dove’s Dermacare Scalp Hair Fall Recovery Shampoo. With Scalp Care Actives and Vitamin B3, it nourishes the scalp and strengthens hair for stronger, thicker-looking, and dandruff-free hair. 


The key here is to make your hair strong to prevent breakage and hair fall. This works well with those who have weak, falling hair, and it also has that volumizing effect. Overall, hair is nourished, stronger, and more beautiful.
