What is dandruff?

It is a non-contagious and not a serious condition in which the skin of the scalp becomes dry or greasy and dead skin is shed as flakes which are seen in hair and shoulders. Although harmless but dandruff can cause an embarrassing situation. People who have dandruff usually have accelerated cell cycle in which cells of the scalp grow fast and shed fast.

Anyone can get dandruff, but there are a few factors that raise your risk:

  • Age: dandruff usually starts developing after puberty in early adulthood and continues till middle adulthood but for some people it is a lifelong thing.
  • Male preponderance: males are more affected by dandruff then females.
  • Too oily or too dry scalp: can cause dandruff.
