Dandruff is responsible for flaky scaly which may arise either out as the outcome of fungal or scalp infection. Like any other cells of the body, the skin cells also face a shedding process. The faster a scalp sheds off its skin cells, the worse your dandruff becomes. Potent causes of dandruff are fungal infections, excessive or less oil secretions, and substance sensitivity. When these three factors are clubbed together, it contributes towards the onset of dandruff.
Different categories of the scalp:
Dry scalp: Dry scalp is more prone to itchiness as well as flakiness. People with dry scalp tend to have frizzy and rough hair. Such hair is dry throughout their length from root to tip. More or less they appear dull and sluggish. Their excessive dryness makes it quite tricky for managing them. As a result, these hair are more prone to turn brittle and have excessive split ends. Itching skin is yet another side effect of dry scalp characterized by white flakes which are powdery in their overall appearance and appear distinct from dandruff.
Oily Scalp: Within a couple of days after washing hair, you suddenly feel that your hair is quite greasy. It becomes difficult for you to quit shampooing your hair forever and your scalp is all over covered with oily and waxy flakes. These waxy flakes tend to bind your hair follicles to one another making them appear greasy or waxy.
Combination scalp: This is a specific scalp type wherein the scalp is generally oily and turns flaky while the hair tips appear dry. Grease is common to be found at roots of your hair linings while the tips turn dry and rough.
Normal scalp: Normal scalp do get greasy in summer and dry in winter with the change in environmental conditions. However, for the significant portion of time, it lies somewhere in between. Your hair follicles are easier for managing, and they are neither greasy nor dry.
