Dandruff Definition :

Dandruff is simply dead skin shedding from your head at a fast rate. Almost everyone has had dandruff at some point to one degree or another. People with a strong degree of dandruff will experience an itchy scalp.

What Causes Dandruff?
The following are items that may cause dandruff:

  • Hormone imbalance.
  • Excessive perspiration
  • Allergic reactions
  • Excessive stress
  • Poor hygiene
  • Poor nutrition/health
  • Lack of sleep
  • Inherited genetic trait
  • Inadequate shampooing and rinsing of the hair.
  • Tight fitting hats.
  • Excessive use of hair styling products (gel, mouse, hair dye, hair curler…)
  • Cold weather
  • Dry environment.
  • Excessive Heat

Even though dandruff is known as the drying of the scalp, it is most common in people with oily hair.

Dandruff Treatment

    • Unfortunately there is no cure for dandruff yet (once you get it you may continue to have it), but there are ways that you can control and limit dandruff.
    • If you have only a mild case of dandruff, shampooing your hair with a regular shampoo daily or twice a day will usually do the trick.
    • Start out by trying a mild shampoo, stronger shampoos can irritate and dry out your hair making dandruff flaking worst.
    • If your standard shampoo doesn’t get rid of your dandruff, buy an anti-dandruff shampoo and your dandruff condition should improve significantly in a couple of weeks.
    • Picking the right shampoo for your hair can be a process of trial and error, try out different shampoos to see which one works best for you and also rotating shampoos periodically can be good for your hair.
    • Once you have found an anti-dandruff shampoo that works for you, keep on using it or your dandruff will most likely reoccur.
    • Lather and rinse twice when using anti-dandruff shampoos, the first time cycle will clean your scalp, the second cycle will medicate it.
