Dandruff is characterized by flakes and annoying itching. It can be very embarrassing. Apart from the constant scratching of hair in public places, the flakes falling from your hair can make you appear very untidy and not presentable.
Almost everyone gets dandruff at some point in their lives; Dandruff can also be described as the shedding of dead skin from the scalp, and is not to be confused with simply a dry scalp. Dandruff comes in two types – dry and waxy; many people are not aware and either over treat or under treat the condition. So before you self diagnose whether you have one of these types of dandruff and not just a dry scalp, we will share 3 signs that shows you that you are definitely suffering from dandruff.
- Flakes – If you have a whitish, oily-looking flakes of dead skin dotting your hair and shoulders on a constant basis, then you are most likely suffering from dandruff. These flakes of skin range from small and white to large, greasy, and yellow.
- Itchy Scalp – Itching is another red flag for dandruff. Flakes are preceded by itching. Usually, the first symptom of dandruff is itching. The itch sensation happens when receptors on the surface of your skin are triggered by some irritants. Your nerves send a signal to the brain via your spinal cord, which then causes you to scratch your hair. Itching is another red flag for dandruff.
- Dryness and Irritation – When you suffer from dandruff, you will have dryness of hair and scalp and many times, the irritation will occur from constant itching on an already dry scalp.
