Dandruff also called as seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic scalp condition where the dead skin cells from the scalp start shedding in the form of white flakes. Dandruff is not only seen on the scalp but also affects other areas with rich oil glands like face, ears and upper trunk. Many people believe that dandruff mainly arises when you do not wash your hair properly, but it is not true. Dandruff doesn’t mean that you have dirty scalp or hair and is not even linked to hygiene.
As we know our skin cells ex-foliates frequently, in the same way, the skin cells present on our scalp also ex-foliates. If these cells ex-foliate rapidly, it leads to dandruff. Dandruff is also seen in children and it is referred as Cradle cap. Though dandruff is not serious and contagious, it can affect your self-esteem and lead to depression.
