Proper hair care should be an essential part of your routine if you wish to stay away from dandruff.

  • Irregular and improper hair brushing can gradually lead to dandruff. It is a common cause that causes dandruff and other hair problems.
  • When you are combing your hair, the dead skin cells are easily removed. However, in the absence of combing the dead cells are not removed and they stick to your scalp. Eventually this layer of dead skin develops into dandruff.

  • In the absence of proper shampooing these skin cells and oily deposits lead to dandruff.

6. Malassezia:

  • Malassezia is a natural fungus that grows on our skin. Although this fungus is fairly harmless, it multiplies faster in areas that are oilier.
  • Scalp is a region where there are lots of oil glands and this is in turn results in growth and development of excess Malassezia. This fungus blocks the sebaceous glands which lead to itching, inflammation and dandruff.

7. Improper Diet

A diet which is deficient in vitamins, zinc and fats can lead to dandruff.

8. Stress

If you are too much stressed it can encourage the growth of dandruff. Stress is a major culprit that causes several issues which also includes skin problems.
