What Causes Dandruff?

Dandruff means having flakes of skin appearing on your scalp. This is a common condition, and it is usually itchy.

To understand why we get dandruff, you must first understand our skin cells. Our body sheds dead skin cells continuously, it’s a normal process we all go through. That’s why we need to take showers, to wash those away.

Skin cells are also shed and formed on the scalp as well. However, if you have dandruff, your skin cells are being shed faster than normal. The flakes from your hair are actually dead skin cells lumped together with oil secreted from your scalp.

The exact cause for your case of dandruff may differ from others. But it could be one or more of these factors:

  • Dry Skin
  • Existing skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema
  • Sensitive reaction to certain hair products
  • Yeast 
  • Stress
  • Poor diet

    How to treat dandruff?

    If the cause of your dandruff is related to a skin condition, consult your doctor for treatment. If that’s not the cause, then it is highly possible that the cause is oil on your scalp.

    Your best bet would be to switch out your shampoo for one that is designed for dandruff treatment. This means you can’t just pick up any random shampoo from your supermarket. You will need one that contains a specific anti-dandruff ingredient.

    There are several of such ingredients out there, but the most used around the world is Zinc Pyrithione (ZPT). There’s a good reason why.

    ZPT is a chemical formula is used in the treatment of seborrhoeic dermatitis (also known as dandruff). It also inhibits the division of fungal cells and bacterial cells.

    Simply put, it’s invented to treat dandruff.
