Dandruff! Does Everyone Have It?!

This quick blog is more of an educational statement.

We recently had a few students at Zamora Natural Hair and Braiding School mention dandruff. They asked why does everyone have dandruff? We started thinking to ourselves most people probably think that everyone has dandruff and we should clear things up!








Dandruff is medically known as pityriasis and is similar to a rash. It is often confused with product build-up, dry skin, and normal skin cell shedding however, dandruff has very different characteristics. Dandruff is hard, large, visible flakes that often appear scaly. Having dandruff is considered a scalp disorder and treatment is required for relief. To treat dandruff use a sulfer shampoo, tea tree oil, and even apple cider vinegar (as a pre-shampoo treatment). About 45% of the human population has dandruff, so no, everyone definitely does not have dandruff and if you find you have an itchy scalp without the previously description of dandruff you likely need a good shampoo and moisture treatment.


So now you know the deal with dandruff! I'm glad we could clear that up. Now for:
