Dandruff is not only a cosmetic problem:

Skin constantly produces new skin cells and sheds old cells to help it stay healthy. Dandruff occurs when this cycle of skin renewal speeds up, causing patches of dead skin to form on the scalp, leading to white flakes in the hair.

Why does dandruff occur?

Dandruff is far more common than people think. It isn’t caused by poor hygiene but can be more noticeable without regular hair washing. Many factors can contribute to a build-up of dandruff such as stress and hair styling products, but the main causes of dandruff are:

MALASSEZI: Malassezia is a group of fungi that naturally occurs on the skin surface of humans. One of these fungi species is Malassezia furfur. The fungus needs fat to grow and can be found on sebaceous skin and hairy areas of the body such as the scalp, face, chest and back.

TINEA CAPITIS: Tinea capitis is a fungal infection that affects the scalp. It is sometimes also known as scalp ringworm, as it can cause a scaly, red rash. Tinea capitis can affect both adults and children but is more common in children.

ECZEMA: Eczema is a skin condition that causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked. Eczema can affect any part of the body, but most often affects the hands, creases of elbows and knees, face and scalp, when the scalp is affected it can lead to dandruff.

PSORIASIS: Psoriasis is a skin condition that is associated with red, flaky, patches of skin that look like they are covered with silvery scales. These patches can appear anywhere on your body but can often affect the scalp, which can cause dandruff. Psoriasis affects around 2% of people in the UK and can start at any age.

ALLERGIC CONTACT DERMATITIS: Allergic contact dermatitis is an allergic reaction to contact with a particular substance such as soap or detergent and usually occurs within a few hours or days of exposure to an allergen or an irritant. This reaction can cause the skin on the scalp to become red, blistered, dry and cracked.

Neutrogena T/Gel shampoo can help not only treat and prevent dandruff, but also provide relief from itching and flaking related to dandruff.

When you’re shopping for shampoo, there’s a high chance you’ll choose products based on what they do to your hair, and completely forget about your scalp. However, the skin on your scalp may need attention just like the skin on the rest of your body, especially if you suffer from a scalp condition.

From dandruff to scalp psoriasis, here are three common scalp conditions and their possible solutions:

  • Dandruff
  • Seborrhoeic Dermatitis
  • Scalp Psoriasis

Dandruff - What is dandruff?

Dandruff is the build-up of dead skin cells on the scalp that stick together and break off in large, visible flakes. The symptoms of dandruff typically include flaking and dryness.

What causes dandruff?

In much the same way as the rest of your skin, healthy scalps continually shed dead skin cells. When the delicate rhythm of skin renewal on the scalp is upset, too many skin cells are produced too quickly.

There are many different reasons your scalp could be flaking. Some potential causes could be eczema, a fungal infection, or even a reaction to products you’ve used. The condition can also be made worse by stress and cold weather. If you’re concerned, make sure to visit your GP. It’s important to note that dandruff isn’t caused by poor hygiene, but not washing your hair regularly may make it more obvious.

How to get rid of dandruff?

There is no “cure” for dandruff. Fortunately, however, you can control most symptoms with anti-dandruff shampoos.

These shampoos work in different ways, such as by:

Slowing down the process: Medicated shampoos with coal tar can help slow the proliferation (overproduction) of skin cells on the scalp and have antipruritic properties, which means they can relieve itching.

Clearing scalp build-up: Shampoos with salicylic acid help break down scalp build-up and split flakes into smaller, less visible pieces that can be washed away easily.

Taking antifungal action: Shampoos that include Zinc Pyrithione and Ketoconazole have antifungal properties, which can help you to manage dandruff.

Seborrhoeic dermatitis

Unlike dandruff, seborrhoeic dermatitis doesn’t only affect your scalp. It can occur in areas such as the upper back or nose. Symptoms include reddened, irritated skin, and large flakes. The scalp may be oily, causing flakes to have a yellowish tinge. Like dandruff, seborrhoeic dermatitis has no “cure”, but medicated shampoos can help control the symptoms. Coal tar, ketoconazole, salicylic acid, and selenium sulphide are just some of the ingredients to look out for that can help with the symptoms of seborrhoeic dermatitis.

Scalp psoriasis

The severity of psoriasis on the scalp can vary from slight scaling to thick, crusted plaques. Scalp psoriasis may look similar to seborrhoeic dermatitis, but there are differences. While seborrhoeic dermatitis scales usually appear yellowish and greasy, psoriasis scales generally appear powdery with a silvery sheen.

Always ask a healthcare professional for advice when treating your scalp psoriasis. Doctors and pharmacists often recommend shampoos containing active ingredients. These can include coal tar and salicylic acid to help treat the symptoms of scalp psoriasis.

Dandruff is not always a common chronic skin condition, it can also be a temporary issue that occurs when the body goes through hormonal changes such as puberty. As the scalp is typically covered in hair and we can’t see the exact condition of our skin, dandruff manifests itself by white flakes of dead skin that fall from the scalp.

  • The majority of people with dandruff feel that it affects their confidence.
  • A common cause of dandruff is a fungus which already exists on most people's scalps.
  • The skin constantly produces new skin cells and sheds old cells to stay healthy. Dandruff can occur when this cycle of skin renewal speeds up.
