Dandruff is the dreaded “D” word to many when it comes to hair. It is an annoying issue that some naturals will have to deal with at least once during their journey. Medical News Today says that dandruff is a common condition of the scalp that causes flakes of skin to appear and is marked by itching. The exact cause of dandruff is unknown. However, most experts do agree that it is not caused by poor hygiene.

Despite it not being easy to treat, it can be controlled and calmed if using the right products and techniques.  Nothing is worse than thinking you need to scrub the dickens out of your scalp to get it cleaner when all that harsh scrubbing will in fact make it worse. So, if you suffer from dandruff you do not have poor hygiene. Dandruff is a common condition because our skin cells are forever renewing themselves, and as the new ones are being renewed in our scalp the old or dead ones are pushed to the surface and then out of the scalp.  Common ways to treat dandruff would be the use of anti-dandruff or anti-fungal shampoos and most will have one or more of these ingredients in them: zinc pyrithione, selenium sulphide, coal tar, ketoconazole, salicylic acid, and tea tree oil.
