Alterna Caviar Clinical Dandruff Control Shampoo and Conditioner

Dandruff is a common skin condition that causes dry white flakes of dead skin to appear in the scalp and/or hair.  Whilst not harmful, it can look unsightly and cause the sufferer to become very conscious of their appearance.

Alongside the white flakes, sufferers may also experience an itchy, scaly scalp.  Dandruff can worsen during the autumn and winter, with central heating contributing to dry skin.


The most common cause for dandruff is dry skin.  Usually this is accompanied by signs of dry skin on other parts of the body like the arms and legs.

Irregular shampooing can cause oil and skin cells to build up on the scalp, resulting in dandruff.  On the flip side to this, shampooing too often or using too many styling products can also irritate your scalp and cause dandruff.  Sensitivity to hair products can cause a red, itchy or scaly scalp.

Dermatitis is another common cause of dandruff, recognised by red or greasy skin with flaky white or yellow scales.  Those who suffer with eczema and other skin conditions are more prone to dandruff.  Malassezia, a yest-like fungus, live on the scalp of adults and occasionally it can cause more skin cells to grow.  When the cells die, they can cause irritation and dandruff.
