Eeeks, what on earth is that white, flaky stuff on your head & shoulders?!

Having dandruff is not just a physical problem that needs to be treated patiently and carefully. It needs to be tackled in a larger sense, taking societal factors into consideration.

The Problems

What is the stigma attached to such a visible affliction? First off, you feel really, really embarrassed about Dandruff. There are so many who suffer from emotional symptoms when they realize that flakes of skin are affecting their social interactions? They try to cover up by –

• Wearing hats all the time to cover up dandruff

• Not wearing black clothes so the white flakes don’t show, even though they know black is a slimming color

• Continuously wiping the white flakes off, sneaking into the bathroom or another room to check their shoulders for any flakes

• Feeling very self-conscious at school, college, work or social occasions, and worried about body image and dandruff at the same time

• Wearing gloves to stop themselves from scratching their hair and making it flake even more, and then making it bleed

• Being worried about what other people might think about their personal hygiene

• Suffering embarrassing or misunderstood intimate moments with partner about how they have tried, but nothing seems to work

• Trying various commercial anti dandruff products in vain – some make it better or worse and most are expensive when you have to continuously have to use them.

What is Dandruff?

There are often two confusing aspects of what people see as white flaky bits, which are medically diagnosed dandruff and dry scalp. Dandruff can only be diagnosed by a doctor. Dry scalp is often treated by hairstylist.

There are a few major differences between dandruff and dry scalp. Dandruff is usually recognized by larger, greasy or waxy flakes or clusters of skin cells which are yellowish or grey. They may come off in your hair brush or stick to your hair or scalp, and are accompanied by itching. Dandruff, unlike dry scalp, is usually associated with a fungal or bacterial infection of the scalp and can be contagious.

If you have dandruff, you should not share brushes, combs, hats, towels, hair clips, or anything else that touches your head, and you should clean and disinfect brushes, etc. after each use. There are different types of dandruff and the type and cause can only be diagnosed by a medical professional.

In general, it takes around 2 weeks for the old skin cells to push their way to the surface of the scalp and replace themselves with new ones. Dandruff is caused when the skin cells flake off faster than the skin can cope with and then cause the skin cells to become inflamed with a fungus, causing them to become white and flaky in appearance.

How do you recognize Dandruff symptoms?

You may have some of these symptoms and are wondering what to do.

• Dry or oily scalp

• Yellowish, grayish, or white flaky skin cells on your clothes or bedding

• Itchy scalp

• Redness on scalp

• Inflammation on the scalp. It’s not always visible, but feels a bit raised up from the normal areas.

Who Can Get Dandruff?

Many people think that dandruff is just an old person’s hair condition. To tell you the truth dandruff affects every age, from toddlers (often called cradle cap) to teenagers to middle-aged adults.
