Getting rid of dandruff can be a tricky affair. The condition affects up to 50% of people. Usually the consequence of a dry or oily scalp, dandruff is the excessive shedding of dead skin cells – giving the appearance of white spots or flakes on one’s clothes or the head. While every human being sheds old hair, skin cells, nails, etc., dandruff develops when old skin cells shed rapidly and clump together forming visible skin flakes.
Worst of all, dandruff contributes to greasiness and itchiness that bothers the scalp throughout the day.
One of the most common causes of dandruff is sensitivity to hair products – whether the sulfate or paraben in certain shampoos and conditioners (GroMD products contain neither). Other causes include constitutionally dry skin, seborrheic dermatitis and other hormonal/medical conditions.
So, the first thing to do if you suffer from dandruff is to try and determine the causes(s). Sometimes it can be as peripheral as one’s diet or lifestyle choices, although this is less likely to be the case. An unhealthy diet chalk full of sugary, fatty and salty food can make dandruff worse.
Also, if you seldom use shampoo and take long breaks between conditioning your hair, oil buildup on the scalp can make natural exfoliation and the processing of dead cells harder.
Above all, however, when trying to assess the cause behind your dandruff and treat it, take a closer look at the shampoo, conditioner, hair gel or hair dye you are using. Often the easiest and most effective way of getting rid of your dandruff is to upgrade from a generic shampoo to a DHT blocking shampoo-conditioner that combats dryness and improves hair health.
