What Causes Dandruff and How to Prevent It?

Most of us have had it or noticed dandruff sometime or the other. Those small white flakes you see on your shoulders or the shoulders of someone else. Dandruff is the shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp. As skin cells die a small amount of flaking is normal, some people, however, experience an unusually large amount of flaking either chronically or as a result of certain triggers. What Causes Dandruff? Dandruff is caused by a combination of three natural triggers: 1) A fungus that lives on everyone’s scalp, 2) The presence of scalp oils (which we all have), and 3) One’s exposure to the condition, it can be transmitted through contact.
