Dandruff: Symptoms, causes and solutions

How are they related to scalp conditions?

There’s growing evidence that microinflammations of the scalp are involved in most common scalp disorders – from thinning hair and dandruff, to scalp dryness, itchiness and sensitivity.

If you experience sudden hair loss or brittle hair, you may have an underlying health problem such as thyroid disease, iron deficiency, or an autoimmune disease. Some medications can also cause hair loss. Contact a dermatologist in all instances to get further information.

  • Dandruff can lead to thinning hair or hair loss
  • Dandruff means your hair and scalp are dirty
  • Dandruff can be treated with vinegars, natural oils or baby shampoo

There’s no evidence to suggest any of the above is true.

Recommended solution

Use Eucerin DermoCapillaire ANTI-DANDRUFF GEL SHAMPOO for greasy dandruff or Eucerin DermoCapillaire ANTI-DANDRUFF CREME SHAMPOO for dry dandruff to wash out flakes without irritating your scalp.
