Dandruff is a disorder of the scalp caused by excessive quantities of the micro-organism
Malessezia Ovalis. Excessive quantities of MO upset the normally orderly process of
Desquamation (the process of new cells growing from the dermis and pushing old cells to the
surface of the scalp to fall off naturally).
Instead of tiny individual skin cells falling off, these cells now "clump" together causing larger and
more noticeable flakes.
There are a few methods to control and possibly eradicate dandruff. The recommended
approach includes a combination of several actions:
- Daily brushing (5 minutes only) with a boar bristle brush to exfoliate and loosen up any cells on
- Use of a topical shampoo containing Coal Tar or Salicylic Acid
- Regular conditioning to maintain proper moisture balance to the scalp.
A qualified Trichologist can also review specific information and conduct testing to see if your
disorder is, in fact, dandruff.
