Does Dandruff Cause Hair Loss?

People talk about the main reasons behind hair loss just like (Genetic factors- hormonal dysfunction- bad diet and bad daily habits etc…) But, they are not aware that “Dandruff” is one of these reasons. So in this blog we are going to talk about dandruff and its relationship to hair loss.

What is Dandruff ? 
Dandruff is dead skin cells that sheds from our heads. For some people, dandruff could be a result of excessively dry skin, but for others, it can be the manifestation of a more serious, chronic skin condition.

How does dandruff cause hair-fall?
Since dandruff is dead skin cells, it causes itching and scratching, so when the person keeps scratching his scalp, that makes the hair roots weak and easy to fall down. Though dandruff is not a serious or a contagious disease, if left untreated for a longer time period, it can become itchy and inflamed causing temporary hair loss.

How can we treat dandruff?

• Change your shampoo and get the anti-dandruff types.
• Change the routine of caring for your hair and stay away from the bad hair products.
