Is it just us, or has dandruff become a taboo; a topic people are too embarrassed to discuss? It shouldn’t be! Instead of shying away from it, it’s time to shift your focus to what the heck is causing it. You need to listen to what your itching scalp is trying to tell you. We explore a few common dandruff causes, some of which don’t even relate to your hair.
This is one of the common causes of dandruff and it’s often a result of stress, a change in hormones, an oily scalp or a problem with your immune system. The overproduction of yeast combines with the sebaceous oils, which promotes bacteria. The result is dry flakes and a super-itchy scalp.
While shampoos and conditioners are not the cause of dandruff, using products that aren’t specific to the problem could result in the flakes building up even more. So, be sure to use products specifically designed to get rid of dandruff. Not shampooing enough can also irritate the scalp further, so be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle when it comes to frequency.
Believe it or not, your dandruff woes could be a direct result of what you’re consuming. If you aren’t getting enough zinc, vitamin B and certain types of fats from the food you eat, experts suggest that could be a cause of your flakes, so visit a nutritionist for a long-term solution.
This common condition causes oily skin, so people with it are far more prone to dandruff than your average Joe. It’s marked by red, greasy skin covered in flaky white or yellow scales, and while it can affect your scalp, it can also attack other areas of the body like your eyebrows, sides of your nose and behind your ears.
Before you go self-diagnosing yourself, it’s best to visit a professional stylist who could get to the bottom of your flakes quicker than you could. They’ll also be able to suggest a suitable product to use, specific to your problem, and advise on preventative measures.
