Dandruff is no small matter, especially when it can lead to more hair loss indirectly.
So what is dandruff?
Types of dandruff
Dandruff is a condition that causes flaking on the scalp. There are 2 types of dandruff, dry and oily. Thin, white flakes belong to dry dandruff while bigger, yellowish flakes belong to oily dandruff.
Over shampooing may lead to dry dandruff while fungal infections and skin conditions lead to oily dandruff.
Does Dandruff Cause Hair Loss?
Dandruff itself does not cause hair loss.
However, untreated severe dandruff may cause scratching due to extreme itchiness, causing damage to hair follicles.
Repeated inflammation also causes damage and scarring, slowing or stopping hair growth. This may eventually lead to weak or thinning hair. Twisting and scratching of this scalp leads to further hair loss.
