Dandruff is often the result of scalp irritation caused by the heightened activity of certain microorganisms on the skin. Mild and nourishing medicated skin cleansing products with ingredients that combat the reproduction of these organisms offer an effective and permanent cure. Medicated anti-dandruff shampoos help if the flakes are quite large and yellowish and have been produced by greasy scalp in greasy hair. Dandruff can however also occur because of dry, highly sensitive scalp. In this case, the flakes are small and whitish, and increase directly after the hair has been washed. Mild shampoos that are designed for dry scalp and contain urea are very good at counteract this sort of dandruff.
