Dandruff Symptoms and Causes

Recommended Posts

Dandruff is a common chronic scalp condition marked by flaking of the skin on your scalp. Dandruff isn't contagious or serious. But it can be embarrassing and sometimes difficult to treat.

The good news is that dandruff usually can be controlled. Mild cases of dandruff may need nothing more than daily shampooing with a gentle cleanser. More-stubborn cases of dandruff often respond to medicated shampoos.

Symptoms

For most teens and adults, dandruff symptoms are easy to spot: white, oily-looking flakes of dead skin that dot your hair and shoulders, and a possibly itchy, scaly scalp. The condition may worsen during the fall and winter, when indoor heating can contribute to dry skin, and improve during the summer.

A type of dandruff called cradle cap can affect babies. This disorder, which causes a scaly, crusty scalp, is most common in newborns, but it can occur anytime during infancy. Although it can be alarming for parents, cradle cap isn't dangerous and usually clears up on its own.

Dandruff can have several causes, including:

  • Irritated, oily skin (seborrheic dermatitis). This condition, one of the most frequent causes of dandruff, is marked by red, greasy skin covered with flaky white or yellow scales. Seborrheic dermatitis may affect your scalp and other areas rich in oil glands, such as your eyebrows, the sides of your nose and the backs of your ears, your breastbone (sternum), your groin area, and sometimes your armpits.
  • Not shampooing often enough. If you don't regularly wash your hair, oils and skin cells from your scalp can build up, causing dandruff.
  • A yeastlike fungus (malassezia). Malassezia lives on the scalps of most adults. But, for some, it irritates the scalp and can cause more skin cells to grow.

    The extra skin cells die and fall off, making them appear white and flaky in your hair or on your clothes. Why malassezia irritates some scalps isn't known.

  • Dry skin. Flakes from dry skin are generally smaller and less oily than those from other causes of dandruff. And, redness or inflammation is unlikely. You'll probably have dry skin on other parts of the body, such as your legs and arms, too.
  • Sensitivity to hair care products (contact dermatitis). Sometimes sensitivities to certain ingredients in hair care products or hair dyes can cause a red, itchy, scaly scalp.

Try to wash your hair and scalp with soap made of goat milk. That was my hairdresser's advice and it really worked for me. You can find it in every pharmacy and it's not expensive. You should see the results immediately. Don't worry if it is a bit difficult to rinse out - it's quite greasy. The hair looks beautiful after this treatment and what's more important, the dandruff is gone! Repeat once a week if you need.

    • I know exactly what your talking about. I use to use the gel filled pacifier’s for my kid’s. Needless to say there all grown now. They work great and where the only one my kids would suck on. Here’s what happened. They discontinued them in 2002 - 2003. They became a hazard because they started busting open and baby’s and kid’s where  getting sick., so they discontinued them. 
    • Hello,   I saw a video and it said for better results I should store Creams and Sheet mask in the fridge. This is something I have heard for the first time. Should I?   thanks iosman
    • Advise oils or creams for skin care. Because I completely abandoned myself, wrinkles appeared and some kind of pimples. It all started after I started playing in a casino! I looked at these guys who are PR as much as I earn a million, I unfortunately only won $ 100.
    • I follow a couple of hairstyles accounts on Instagram, always get ideas from here  But I'm really tired of fakes following me, so I have to pay for https://zen-promo.com/instagram_ghosts_cleaning  to be getting rid of them automatically.
    • Organic high oleic safflower oil moisturizes and balances acneic skin. Pure essential oils of niaouli, tea tree, lavender, and combava add to the detoxification and rejuvenation benefits. Oat beta glucan has excellent anti-inflammatory properties and shields the skin, reducing trans-epidermal water loss and restoring skin function and cell renewal. Calophyllum inophyllum oil aids in eliminating waste materials and toxins from the capillaries and supports cellular immunity. Green tea extract protects the skin from free radical damage. It can limit the signs of photo aging, combat the causes of oxidative stress and reduce skin damage caused by UV rays and the environment. Centella asiatica, otherwise known as gotu kola, contains asiatic acid to help firm the skin and prevent wrinkles, as well as the compound asiaticoside to stimulate collagen synthesis. To provide balance and hydration for all skin types, lavender hydrosol is a universal toner. Get More Information: Pore Cleansing Mask
