I am sorry to hear about your concern, but I will be happy to assist you. When you say that you have dandruff it simple means that the skin of your scalp is flaking or it is a fungal infection. This is commonly experienced by children and adults alike. To find white flakes on your shoulders can be very embarrassing. These flakes usually fall due to scalp dryness. If you suffer from dandruff a good oil and an anti-dandruff shampoo can be of help.
