Dandruff really isn’t about your hair, or how often you wash it as advertisements make you believe, dandruff is a skin condition and the skin of the scalp needs to be treated by a dermatologist , instead, of just using one shampoo after another.
Skin cells that grow and die off too fast can be the problem. A very common fungus called malassezia is also known to cause dandruff.

Apart from drying of the scalp skin, there are many other reasons for dandruff, which can only be known after a thorough analysis by the doctor at our clinic . So contact us at the earliest .
