What is dandruff?

Dandruff is one of the most common conditions aspects of scalp disorders. It causes your skin to become dry and flaky and itches your scalp. Every person experiences this condition at some point in their life. The typical symptoms include an itchy, flaky scalp and dry flakes that frequently land on your back, face, and shoulders.

Broadly speaking, depending on the cause we can classify them into three types. We can call them good dandruff, bad dandruff, and ugly dandruff. Different types of dandruff can be distinguished using a Tricho Analysis. It can determine what type of scalp infection you have, as well as the extent of its effects on your scalp. Treatment depends on what type of infection or allergen is present. The severity of the condition will determine whether oral medication or external applications are recommended. Our dandruff specialist in Bangalore devises the best strategies that are compatible with your hair and dandruff type.

Types of Dandruff

The Good Dandruf (Due To Dryness Or Oiliness On The Scalp)

The first type i.e. the good dandruff is usually caused due to dryness or oiliness of the scalp. Dry dandruff is just dryness of scalp. Typically it starts during winter appearing as dry powdery scales on the scalp. Sometimes, it is associated with hair loss as well, but being seasonal by nature, both the dandruff and hair loss are quite often mild and temporary.

Oily dandruff is nothing but the oil secretion on the scalp. Every scalp secretes its own natural oil called sebum. When the head is scratched this oily grimy sebum comes out as white substance in the finger nails and is often mistaken as dandruff.

It usually does not cause any hair loss or scalp damage and therefore qualifies as the ‘good dandruff’. A hair care regime involving the right shampoo and correct method of washing is enough to deal with this type of dandruff.

The Bad Dandruff (Due to Scalp Infections)

The bad dandruff refers to scalp infections. When the oil or sebum secretion on the scalp accumulates or stagnates for too long, it starts attracting fungal infections. These fungi find sebum as a good source of food and therefore grow very easily on an oily scalp. Here the dandruff flakes are more severe and accompanied by itching, irritation and boils on the scalp.
Directly or indirectly the infection then affects hair growth leading to hair loss and sometimes considerable baldness. Such cases do not respond to hair care alone and usually need medical care. When correctly medicated, they respond well to treatment and the hair loss resulting from it can also be controlled.

The Ugly Dandruff (Due To Scalp Skin Disorders)

The third variety i.e. the ugly dandruff refers to scalp diseases like psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis. It is the worst form of dandruff wherein there are large flakes on the scalp almost resembling pieces of skin. This condition can worsen considerably and spread to the face, ears, nose corners and other parts of the body, leading to much distress and therefore qualifies as the ‘ugly dandruff’.

This type of persistent dandruff can be unhealthy for the scalp and can affect the hair roots causing hair loss. The hair loss can be severe enough to cause bald patches or diffuse thinning on the scalp. This type requires early medical intervention.

Symptoms of Dandruff

Dandruff treatment is not easy especially if you don’t go for treatment at the initial phase. If you have mild dandruff, you can easily cure it with the use of gentle daily shampoo. If you find it doesn’t help you get the desired results, you can approach a trichologist who will provide you with the medicated shampoo. As soon as you find the below symptoms, you need to take the best dandruff treatment in Bangalore.

  • Itchy scalp
  • Skin flakes on eyebrow, hair, mustache, scalp, and shoulders
  • Flakes can be large, small, yellow, and greasy. 

Causes of Dandruff

Some of the most common causes of dandruff are;

  • Dry skin: Those who have dry skin are prone to get dandruff. The situation gets worse, especially during the winter seasons. During this season your skin becomes drier and you will face the severity of dandruff.
  • Not shampooing enough is another reason why the majority of people get dandruff. If an individual doesn’t use shampoo enough, it causes the accumulation of oil that builds up on her skin and becomes one of the prime reasons for dandruff. There’s also the possibility that you may not be using the right shampoo.
  • If you are suffering from a medical condition such as Seborrheic dermatitis, you are prone to suffer from dandruff and an itchy scalp.
  • Yeast overgrowing is one of the causes of dandruff
  • Allergy from hair care products.  

When to seek medical help for dandruff ?

The different types of dandruff can be rated with respect to each other on a scale of 1 to 10. Some conditions start from one end of the scale and progressively become worse as they reach towards the ten, ending up as severe dandruff. Therefore if you have dandruff, the best thing to do is to use a good anti-dandruff shampoo and wait for about a fortnight. If it goes away after using the shampoo, no further treatment is required. However if its still keeps re-appearing in spite of repeated shampooing or has persisted for a long time or is accompanied with severe hair loss, then chances are the condition has progressed to the “bad dandruff” or further stages, in which case it needs to be medically treated.

To choose the right shampoo you need to understand whether your scalp is dry or oily. A blotting paper test can help you understand your scalp type. Skip shampooing for 2 days in a row, press a piece of blotting paper against the scalp for about 20 seconds. Remove the paper and assess the size of the wet patch on the blotting paper. If the size is negligible, the scalp is dry. If the size is bigger, almost the size of a finger tip or even bigger then it suggests an oily scalp. Generally people who sweat profusely also tend to have an oily scalp. Once the scalp type is known, following the correct hair care becomes easy.

How is dandruff diagnosed ?

An indiscriminate use of medicated shampoos for too long can make the dandruff resistant. Therefore if the dandruff seems persistent, it is better seek medical help and identify the condition correctly.

A Tricho Analysis can help to differentiate between the various types of dandruff. It can identify the type of scalp infection and the extent to which it has affected your scalp and the hair roots.
