Sometimes, ‘Dandruff’ is just because a person doesn’t shampoo enough. Regular shampoo washes, which means at least twice a week, helps in removing dandruff.
Dandruff flakes are scales from one’s scalp. They are white in colour and are flaky in texture. TV ads have caused to associate all-white flakes with dandruff. These ads dramatize dandruff to an unnatural degree, yes there are cases where dandruff is extreme but only about 2% of cases are like that. Also contrary to popular belief, you cannot create home remedies that alleviate Dandruff. So, using egg yolks or onion juice and applying them on one’s hair is good for hair health, but it doesn’t help one in actually solving problems related to hair loss or even dandruff.
The most common cause of Dandruff is ‘Seborrheic Dermatitis’. It can be either mild or severe. It is an inflammatory reaction to a particular yeast, although research has noted several different causes of it too. When this yeast swarms our scalp, our immune system reacts to it which leads to a flaky, itchy scalp. This problem can usually be solved by shampooing well. So, let’s understand the first line of defence: How to shampoo Correctly.
1. Dry Scalp: The most well-known reason for Dandruff is Dry scalp. We associate these two terms, and it is usually true. Dry scalp does leads to a lot of problems. It can cause itchiness and when you do that a certain microorganism may enter into these spaces opened by itching and lead to further troubles. Lack of moisture can be corrected by improving one’s diet and also using hair products regularly.
2. Seborrheic Dermatitis: Another common reason for Dandruff, which we have discussed above. This condition leads to itchy, scaly, and a Dandruff that is persistent.
3. Contact Dermatitis: Sensitivity to a particular hair care product can also be the reason. So, you have to choose your hair care product wisely.
4. Pollution: Pollution causes an irritated scalp which can cause dandruff. Well moisturised scalp doesn’t mean an oily scalp, though. Remember oil application should be done for nourishment, not for retention. Oily skin mixed with pollutants is the worst concoction for Dandruff.
