Dandruff

Dandruff is a common scalp condition that affects most teenagers and adults. It is white, oily flakes of dead skin that causes itchy scalp. Dandruff can be caused by dry skin, especially during cold weather, oily skin, eczema, fungus (malassezia) and sensitivity to hair products.

Mild dandruff can be controlled by washing your hair daily with a gentle shampoo to reduce oiliness and dead skin build up. You can use dandruff shampoos that has Zinc pyrithione which is an antibacterial and antifungal agent e.g. Head & Shoulders shampoo. You can also use shampoos like Neutrogena T/Gel, Nizoral, Selsun Blue, Tea Tree oil Shampoo etc. Use these shampoos daily until the dandruff is under control and then you can reduce it to two or three times a week. If one brand does not work switch to the other brand.

Eating a healthy diet rich in Zinc and B vitamins may also help prevent dandruff.
