Dandruff Treatment

What is dandruff?

Dandruff is a skin condition characterized by the appearance of flakes of dead skin from the scalp in the hair. The sensation of itchiness in areas of the scalp is a common symptom of this condition. The condition is not contagious and cannot be passed from person to person. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), approximately 50% of the world's population suffers from dandruff, and it can be treated and managed, with effective dandruff treatment.

What are dandruff causes?

Dandruff is caused by a fungus called Malassezia Globosa, which feeds on the oils that exist on most scalps. When oil breaks down, it produces oleic acid. Some people are allergic to oleic acid, which causes excessive scalp skin shedding. This skin condition wreaks havoc on the scalp. As the skin layers are constantly replaced, cells are pushed outward, where they die and flake off.

Types of dandruff

Although dandruff flakes may appear similar, they can be caused by different types of scalp conditions. Knowing what type of dandruff you have is essential before you start your dandruff treatment.

Dry Skin Dandruff: The most common condition that occurs in the winter is dry skin dandruff. It is caused by taking a hot bath, which causes your scalp to become extremely dry and flaky. This type of dandruff is very common in people with dry, curly hair.

Fungal Dandruff: Fungal Malassezia is a naturally occurring component of the skin and scalp. This fungus thrives on excess oil on the scalp, producing oleic acid which causes skin cells to clump together, and results in white flakes.

Oil-Related Dandruff: Oil-related dandruff occurs when sebum oil accumulates on the scalp. This oil is stored by the scalp glands and causes clumps of dead skin cells and dirt which result in itchy flakes.

Disease-Related Dandruff: Some skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema, cause an overproduction of skin cells, resulting in scaly skin on the scalp. Dandruff is caused when these skin cells come into contact with sebum oil and dirt.

Seborrheic dermatitis causes severe redness, sores, and itching of the scalp. It is primarily visible on the back of the head and neck.

Can dandruff lead to hair loss?

Dandruff does not directly cause hair loss. The itching caused by dandruff affects the hair follicles, which can result in some hair loss. Dandruff might increase hair loss in people with androgenetic alopecia.
