Dandruff is a common problem which normally every person experiences one or the other time. In this problem, small white-colored scales get accumulated on the scalp. This condition can be both normal and curable or may get worse wherein the skin gets severely infected. A person having dandruff feels scales in between the hair and lots of itchiness on the head. The affected person may feel like scratching the head all the time. This may redden the scalp and cause further skin infection. It may also result in hair loss.
Dandruff can be of two types. Oily dandruff occurs in people with oily skin whereas dry skin people have dry dandruff. Both cases require different treatments. But before that, it is necessary to know the causes of dandruff.
The skin keeps on renewing itself. The older cells of the scalp are replaced by the newer ones. But if the process is upset and the speed of renewal of cells increases, the older cells accumulate as flakes on the scalp. The result is dandruff on the head.
The cell renewal process is disturbed because of:
1. Frequent change in climatic conditions or temperatures,
2. An improper or insufficient wholesome diet,
3. Emotional exhaustion,
4. Use of unsuitable shampoos or harsh products on hair,
5. Excessive use of hair styling products and
6. Fungal infection
7. Once a person is aware of the cause of dandruff, he or she may take preventive actions that can lower the dandruff level.
Some measures which can improve the condition in general are:
a. Do not use the comb or brush of the affected person.
b. Clean or wash your own comb as frequently as possible.
c. If certain things like drug use or harsh hair products trigger dandruff then it’s better to stay away from them.
d. Get active and clean your hair regularly.
e. Keep your body fit and take a healthy diet. Also, cure constipation as it is one of the crucial factors of dandruff.
However, if dandruff persists then one must take proper treatment to clear away dandruff. The easiest solution is over the counter anti-dandruff shampoos available in the market. Pick a good one and keep on using it even after the dandruff is gone.
