The most common symptoms of dandruff are tiny white skin flakes on the scalp, hair, eyebrows, shoulders and itchy scalp. Today, a lot of different treatment plans are available to treat your itchy, flaky scalp.
What causes dandruff?
Although the exact cause for dandruff is still unknown, there are a number of things that can increase the risk of dandruff or accelerate your dandruff problem. Some such causes are:
- Unclean hair or not shampooing enough can cause flaky scalp
- Oily, irritated scalp could cause dandruff and could turn into seborrheic dermatitis, a more severe problem
- Allergic reaction to certain hair care products could cause the scalp to become flaky and red
- Contact Dermatitis could also contribute to dandruff
- Eczema or psoriasis could also lead to dandruff
Although dandruff generally shows up in adolescence and continues until the middle ages, adults could also suffer from this problem. Men have a higher tendency for having dandruff. Some severe diseases like HIV or Parkinson’s could also increase your risk of getting dandruff.
