5 Reasons Why You Have Dandruff
As one of the most common hair problems, dandruff (also known as Pityriasis Simplex Capillitii) though experienced is never really understood. What is dandruff? What causes dandruff? Why do you have dandruff? How can you prevent dandruff? How do you cure dandruff? To find answers and hair care tips for all this and more, read on.
  1. Sensitive scalp
    One thing that causes dandruff is a sensitive scalp. You could have an oily skin type or a dry skin type, if you have an itchy, irritated and rash-prone scalp, dandruff is very likely to happen to you. What happens in case of an oily scalp is that because of excess oil production, it tends to hold the dirt and grime well on your scalp. So our hair care tip is to keep your scalp clean and free from oil by shampooing frequently! To avoid hair damage caused by frequent shampooing, pick a mild herbal shampoo.
  2. Dry winters
    If you have more dandruff during winters than in summers, the reason for summer dandruff-free months maybe the strong sun rays during the season which make you sweat and don’t allow the scalp to be dry. What’s more, in winters, if you have dry skin then your scalp tends to be drier, which results in accumulation of dry and dead skin, therefore dandruff!
  3. Scalp fungus
    Irrespective of the season, if you have dandruff throughout the year, you could have a scalp problem. Maybe you are sensitive to yeast? And this could be causing dandruff. Yeast-like fungus such as Malassezia Globosa, are symbiotic fungal genus which feed on the dead skin and oils on your head, so when there is too much oil, dirt or dead skin, they cause dandruff.
  4. Skin disorders
    When people are diagnosed with skin diseases like psoriasis, eczema, etc., they face dandruff-like scalp conditions too. In such a situation, one should consult a specialist and start treatment without any delay.
  5. Stress
    Stress causes a whole lot of things, one of them being dandruff. Though it’s still unproven how mental stress results in dandruff, studies prove that there is a connection. Glucocorticoids generated due to stress have the ability to alter the make-up of cells that are present on our scalps, and make it a conducive environment for the fungus – Malassezia which causes dandruff. Something that really works as a remedy is 8 hours of sleep on a daily basis. You could also try this hair care tip – get a soothing head massage every fortnight to keep your head calm.
