What is dandruff?
Dandruff is a shedding of skin on the scalp or areas of the body where hair growth happens (like eye brows, etc.) that leads to white flakes on the head, neck, and shoulders.

What causes dandruff?
Dandruff is typically caused by a skin condition called eczema. Eczema creates an increased shedding of normal scalp skin cells and can sometimes be caused by seasonal or hormonal issues. Another common way people get dandruff is by contracting a fungal infection in the affected area.

What are the symptoms?
Some of the common symptoms of dandruff can include white, oily-looking flakes in the hair of the affected area and usually can be seen on your shoulders and can also lead to an itchy, scaling scalp which can be either excessively dry or oily.

How is it treated?
There are many over the counter products, such as anti-dandruff shampoos, that can often help prevent and get rid of the symptoms of dandruff. If you choose this route to treat your dandruff condition, we recommend that you shampoo daily to prevent a build-up of dead skin cells on your scalp. When using these shampoos, make sure to rub your scalp thoroughly with several applications per wash. This will help dislodge excess cells. Be careful not to rub so energetically that you damage your scalp.

If this does not solve your dandruff situation there may be other underlying conditions that need to be explored. CALL US!
