Dandruff is a scalp condition where dead skin is shed as white flakes, when skin cells are renewed. Some people tend to grow and discard cells at a faster rate and this has been linked to seborrhoea and overgrowth of the yeast Pityrosporum ovale.

Contributing factors: trauma, hormonal imbalance, illness, carbohydrate and sugar consumption and B vitamin deficiencies.

Who to consult: Dietician, dermatologist, GP, herbalist, naturopath, pharmacist.
