    Six Top Tips that Help Get Rid of Dandruff

    More than 50% of the world’s population is affected by dandruff, which can be defined as a skin disorder that is linked to a proliferation of lipophilic yeasts of the genus malassezia. In many cases, dandruff is a skin condition that does not require visiting a doctor because there are plenty of options that aid in targeting dandruff. At PHS HAIRSCIENCE®, we are the experts who can treat dandruff thus seeing a dermatologist is not required.

    Causes of dandruff

    • Not shampooing your hair properly – If you do not properly cleanse your scalp, oil and dead skins cell will build up overtime and cause dandruff.
    • Oily or irritated skin – This is another result of not washing the scalp properly, causing dandruff when skin cells build up.
    • Dry skin – If your scalp is not properly moisturised, your skin may dry up and cause dandruff-like flakes to develop.
    • Sensitive to certain hair products – Certain people may be sensitive to different components found in hair care products and this can cause redness and an itchy scalp.
