Those dry, white flakes of skin you brush off your collar or shoulders — are harmless. But they can be embarrassing and itchy.
Dandruff really isn't about your hair, or how often you wash it. Instead, it's about the skin on your scalp.
If the skin on your body or face becomes scaly or itchy, your first instinct is probably to reach for a moisturizer. When your scalp is flaky, though, it’s usually the result of too much oil rather than too little. “It’s a common misconception that dandruff is caused by dryness; in reality, it’s usually due to an overgrowth of a harmless yeast,” explains Jessica Wu, M.D., a Los Angeles dermatologist and assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Southern California Medical School. “In some people, the yeast starts to feed on the excess oil and dead skin cells on the scalp, causing the skin cells to shed more frequently and clump into flakes.”
Dandruff may get worse when you're stressed or sick. Cold, dry winters can trigger dandruff or make it worse, too.
