Dandruff: Causes and Treatments


Dandruffs could be rather embarrassing and uncomfortable to deal with, especially when flakes large and small land everywhere around your clothing and even on your food. It isn’t really harmful or contagious, but it could occur to anyone across any age segment and in both genders.

Given the various causes behind dandruff, perhaps the best thing one could do before getting treated is to find out what the cause is.

Most skincare experts generally believe and agree that dandruff is essentially a condition due to an overgrowth of skin cells caused by the working of fungus or excess sebum on your scalp. Very often, a fungus called malassezia, which is found in every human being’s skin, triggers dandruff. As normal as this fungus is for us humans, some of us have too much of it, and this causes skin cells to multiply more quickly than usual, which leads to excessive skin flaking off from your scalp.

Other factors that could cause dandruff would include age factor, hormonal imbalance and stress as well. If you don’t wash your hair often enough, the oil build-up on the scalp could also make it possible for dandruff to come about. For some people, this starts at very young age and combined with the lack of proper hair care or hygiene, it becomes worse through the years.

It is not all helpless, however. Dandruff is a condition that, if not curable for some, could be controlled to a large extent with the right treatment and medication. In fact, there are a lot of over-the-counter products and treatments that offer quick and temporary solutions to dandruff woes, but most of us are always looking for something permanent.
