Looking over your shoulder while driving is a healthy habit. But looking over your shoulder to check for dandruff could be quite embarrassing, especially for women. Dandruff is a common scalp condition which is chronic but not contagious (unless caused by infection). Formation of dry, white flakes of dead skin on hair and scalp is dandruff. And it may also be accompanied by itching and burning sensation. Those with oily skin are more prone to this problem as it is usually a mild form of seborrheic dermatitis.
Dandruff is caused by:
- Dry weather
- Infrequent shampooing
- Sensitivity to hair products
- Overgrowth of yeast-like fungus
- Conditions like eczema and psoriasis
