1. Seborrheic dermatitis
People with seborrheic dermatitis have oily skin and are more likely prone to dandruff symptoms. Those who have this condition typically have red skin and are oily on the scalp, ears, and nose.
Those who are more prone to yeast have a higher chance of developing symptoms, which is typically worse during the winter months. The specific yeast is called malassezia and aggravates the scalp by causing excessive skin cell growth.
3. Dry skin
People with dry skin are also more likely to develop dandruff, but the two are not the same. Actually, having too much oil on your scalp can cause dandruff and so applying more oil to your hair can worsen the condition and can lead to stickier flakes.
4. Shampooing and hair products
Shampooing too much can be one of the reasons for dandruff as it can cause irritation on the scalp. It can produce a red, itchy scalp, which may cause an increase in dandruff.
5. Not enough hair brushing
Brushing your hair regularly reduces the risk of dandruff as the skin can shed off. However, harsh or improper removal of scales can cause more irritation.
Not consuming enough foods that contain zinc or vitamins can also increase the chances of dandruff. It's important that on your journey to a cleaner and greener planet you are also taking the appropriate time to nourish your inside.
As we grow older, flakes are more likely to flare up and can last the rest of one’s life. And, as you grow older your hormones change, making your scalp more susceptible to dandruff.
