Let us know what causes dandruff.
In a normal scalp skin the new cells of scalp skin push the older ones to the surface of scalp. The dead and old cells are shed almost in an invisible way. But in few conditions like dry skin, irritated oily skin, inappropriate shampooing, psoriasis, Eczema, sensitivity to hair products, fungus etc , the process of replacing dead skin becomes unusually rapid and the dead cells are shed in form of dry flakes. These flakes of dead skin are known as dandruff.
According to text books of ayurveda dandruff is caused due to vitiation of doshas like kapha and vayu. Vitiated vayu make the scalp skin dry and vitiated kapha causes itching of scalp. Thus dried scalp skin comes out in flakes and person experiences itching all over scalp.The treatment of dandruff involves normalising vitiated doshas and improving health of scalp skin externally and also internally. Externally it can be done by massaging scalp with anti dandruff ayurvedic hair oil which contains neem as major herb. Internally suitable measures have to be taken to detox skin.
