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.

There are lots of natural remedies for all your dandruff and oily scalp woes.

- Tea tree oil- Add a few drops of tea tree oil to your shampoo or use a natural shampoo with tea tree essence; tea tree oil has antimicrobial prorates which help reduce dandruff. Repeat every time you wash your hair.

- Lemon-yogurt hair mask- Mix two spoonfuls of yogurt with one spoonful of lemon juice and and apply the mask to your scapulas. Leave on scalp for 30-35 mins and then wash with a mild shampoo and warm water. Repeat once or twice a week. 

- Lemon-honey mask- Mix lemon and honey in the ratio of 1:3 respectively. Leave the mask on scalp for around 30 mins and then rinse with warm water and a mild shampoo. Repeat twice a week. 

- Yogurt- incase you don't have time for elaborate masks you can even apply plain yogurt to your scalp. Leave for around 30 mins and then rinse with warm water and a mild shampoo. 

- Warm Oil- Try heating oil for a bit and applying it to your hair. Use coconut oil preferably. Leave it on your hair for an hour and a half and then washing with a mid shampoo. Oil however, can reduce or increase dandruff in different hair types and thus should be first tried once or twice. 

- Visit a dermatologist- if nothing works its always good to visit a dermatologist in addition to using home remedies. They will suggest you god anti- dandruff shampoos. 

Hope this answered everyone's questions!!
