What Exactly Is Dandruff?
Dandruff is a common hair problem which causes the scalp to become very dry and itchy. Your scalp may shed flakes of dead skin cells which are called dandruff. While some amount of flaking is normal, you should worry when the scalp is always itchy and you see clumps of dead skin cells.
Causes Of Dandruff
The causes could be anything from a too dry or too greasy scalp and sensitivity to hair products to skin conditions and not cleaning the scalp enough. In many cases. It could be malassezia, a common fungus that contributes to the build-up of dandruff. If the condition persists for a long time, visit a dermatologist.
Simple Tips To Keep Dandruff At Bay
Use an effective anti-dandruff shampoo specially formulated with active ingredients such as zinc pyrithione or piroctone olamine, which control the fungus and yeasts. Such a shampoo can be used as often as required. Once, twice or even thrice weekly. Combine it with a mild conditioner formulated for greasy hair. You can also skip the conditioner if you don’t need it.
