How many of us are suffering from dandruff currently – me, I raise my hand first. Whenever I start to lose hair heavily, I immediately realize that the dandruff is back! I successfully get rid of dandruff many times, but then, its back after some months. Actually, dandruff is a scalp disorder in which excessive shedding of dead skin cells occur. It is accompanied by itching and dandruff not always but mostly protracts the hair fall condition. Dandruff condition fluctuates during seasons and often thought to exaggerate during winters. According to Wikipedia, for people with dandruff, skin cells that die and flake off are unusually rapid. In people suffering from dandruff condition, it takes only 2 to 7 days for the cells to shed as opposed to people without dandruff. These cells shed in a large and visible manner on the scalp, skin and clothes and that’s so unsightly!
