Dandruff

Are you scared to wear black, fearing your dandruff will show on your shirt or your dress? Is your scalp constantly itchy and flaky? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Dandruff is a very common problem; it is more common and visible in some people than others. The most common symptoms of dandruff are tiny white skin flakes on the scalp, hair, eyebrows, shoulders, and itchy scalp. Today, a lot of different treatment plans are available to treat your itchy, flaky scalp.

What causes dandruff?
Although the exact cause for dandruff is still unknown, there are a number of things that can increase the risk of dandruff or accelerate your dandruff problem. Some such causes are:

  • Unclean hair or not shampooing enough can cause flaky scalp
  • Oily, irritated scalp could cause dandruff and could turn into seborrheic dermatitis, a more severe problem
  • Allergic reaction to certain hair care products could cause the scalp to become flaky and red
  • Contact Dermatitis could also contribute to dandruff
  • Eczema or psoriasis could also lead to dandruff


Although dandruff generally shows up in adolescence and continues until the middle ages, adults could also suffer from this problem. Men have a higher tendency for having dandruff. Some severe diseases like HIV or Parkinson’s could also increase your risk of getting dandruff.
