Albeit, this is not the case. Out of many reasons for hair-fall, dandruff should be topping the list by now.
A chronic and the most common scalp condition, dandruff refers to the white flakes that appear on the scalp. This superficial skin layer made up of dead skin cells can be a result of unhealthy diet habits, illness, lack of hygiene, frequent usage of cosmetic products on the scalp, etc.
Dandruff flakes, which are dead skin cells result in itching and thus scratching of the scalp. Vigorous scratching weakens hair roots, ultimately leading to hair fall.
Though dandruff is not a serious or a contagious disease, if left untreated for longer time period, it can become itchy and inflamed causing temporary hair loss.
Along with these remedies steer clear of bad habits like switching shampoo often, tidying hair right after a wash, brushing vigorously, using heating tools, having an unbalanced diet, etc.
To fix hair loss caused by dandruff, one must get rid of the dandruff in the first place. Though there is nothing better than a home remedy, seeking medical help to prevent bad conditions from becoming worse is ideal.
