What causes dandruff?

There are several culprits that may contribute to dandruff and itchiness. This may include stress or genetics.

The most common reason that dandruff develops is an abundance of sebum. Our bodies sees this as an irritant and over produces skin cells that produce dandruff.

Yeast is another cause of dandruff. If you have a diet high in sugar and processed foods, this can be a result.

Treatment can include shampoo with coal tar that are effective in reducing dandruff. However, you should seek to avoid shampoo with parabens, fragrance and sulfates.
