How to Control Dandruff

Thursday, June 18, 2009
If you suffer from dandruff flakes, you might wonder what causes the flaking.

According to the Mayo Clinic, dandruff likely isn't caused by a dry scalp, overuse of hair products or poor hygiene, dandruff's biggest culprit is likely a fungus called "malassezia." Most adults have this fungus on their scalps, but it can get out of control on those who suffer from dandruff. The fungus tends to feed on oil secretions and causes clumps of dead skin cells.

The best way to fight dandruff is with a two-punch shampoo system. A shampoo containing zinc pyrithione, such as Head & Shoulders, kills the fungus. Follow this shampoo with one that has salicylic acid, which "scrubs" off the flakes.
