What Is Dandruff?

Dandruff is a common and often embarrassing condition that occurs when dry skin on the scalp flakes off. In some cases itchiness and irritation will company it.

Symptoms are easy to spot, you can simply look at your shoulders for evidence of flakes. Dry skin, oily skin, poor diet, not shampooing enough, sensitivity to hair products or skin disorders may be the root cause behind the dandruff. Environmental conditions such as extreme hot or cold weather can also be a factor. Fortunately most instances of dandruff can be controlled. See our treatment video for more information.
