Before we get to treatment, we have to understand the problem of dandruff. It refers to that dry, skin flakes which can be quite noticeable since they are white in color. It may surprise you to know that, medically speaking, this is no cause for alarm.
However, since these flakes can be quite socially embarrassing, people are quick to lap up any cure that the market can offer. The itching, which typically accompanies dandruff is also a problem. The misconception which fuels the social problem is that dandruff results from poor hygiene and hair care.
While irregular shampooing can make things worse for you, now that you have dandruff, it is not what caused it. You should check with your doctor, especially if your dandruff appears to be greasy and yellow. This most often results from seborrheic dermatitis.
