      What is Dandruff?

      Dandruff is a common scalp condition characterised by the presence of white or yellowish flakes of dead skin in the hair and on the shoulders. It is typically accompanied by itching and can be caused by a variety of factors, including dry skin, an overgrowth of a yeast-like fungus called Malassezia, sensitivity to hair care products, or skin conditions like seborrheic dermatitis. While dandruff is not a serious medical condition, it can be bothersome and embarrassing for those who experience it. Fortunately, it is usually manageable with over-the-counter shampoos and home remedies, although severe or persistent cases may require medical attention from a dermatologist.

      Understanding Dandruff

      The road to resolving dandruff involves recognizing it as a common scalp condition characterised by the flaking of dead skin cells, often accompanied by itching. The primary causes of dandruff can include dry skin, the presence of a yeast-like fungus on the scalp, sensitivity to hair care products, or underlying skin conditions. Dandruff can vary in severity and is typically manageable with the use of specialised shampoos and good scalp hygiene. It’s essential to differentiate it from other scalp issues and, in persistent or severe cases, seek guidance from a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

      Causes of Dandruff

      The causes of dandruff can be multifactorial and include:

      Dry Skin: In some cases, dandruff results from a lack of moisture on the scalp, leading to flaking skin.
      Fungal Overgrowth: An overabundance of a yeast-like fungus, Malassezia, on the scalp, can lead to dandruff by causing irritation and excessive shedding of skin cells.
      Sensitivity to Hair Products: Certain hair care products or their ingredients can trigger dandruff in individuals who are sensitive to them (Contact Dermatitis).
      Skin Conditions: Underlying skin conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis or eczema can contribute to dandruff.

      Understanding the specific cause of dandruff is essential for selecting the most appropriate treatment or management approach tailored to the individual’s needs.
