Dandruff is an incredibly common condition that affects the scalp, resulting in small pieces of dry skin that flake off and end up in your hair — and eventually on your clothing. Aside from the obvious cosmetic issues it causes, persistent itching is another symptom that can make dandruff very uncomfortable.

So what causes dandruff? For decades, it was widely assumed that dandruff was typically the result of poor hair hygiene, but this is not the case. Improper hair care may increase its severity, but the underlying causes appear to be very complex and difficult to pinpoint, according to researchers.

Fortunately, symptoms of dandruff can be addressed with prescriptions and medicated shampoos that target the scalp, helping to control the itching — and the flakes!
