Dandruff is a common scalp condition where flakes build-up. It happens when excess oil on your scalp clump up together and appear as white flakes. Other causes of dandruff include dry skin, sensitivity to hair products, and to some extent, stress.
Dandruff isn’t contagious, although not treating it may give you a higher risk of bacteria growth, which leads to infection. It’s embarrassing and annoying especially when your scalp starts to itch, or when flakes fall off your shoulders. The good news is you can easily treat most dandruff related issues without the need for a prescription. There are different effortless ways to treat dandruff with various hair care products to achieve healthy hair.
