DANDRUFF

Dandruff is characterized by flakes and can be caused by a number of things. Dry skin is commonly blamed for skin flakes, but some forms of dandruff come from overactive oil glands.

For most people, dandruff symptoms are easy to spot: white, oily-looking flakes of dead skin can be seen on the hair and shoulders and may also have an itchy and scaly scalp. The condition may worsen during colder weather where the skin is dry and will easily flake.

There are several ways to treat dandruff. Here are some of the following:

  • Use of oils such as Tea Tree Oil, Neem Oil and Eucalyptus Oil.
  • Limit the use of products that dry the scalp over time.
  • Daily washing and brushing.
