Put things to rights
Dandruff, clumps of skin cells at the scalp's surface, comes from a speeded-up renewal of skin cells in response to scalp irritation. Cells that have reached maturity are shed quite naturally and make way for new ones. These microscopic scales are normally invisible but certain imbalances can disrupt and accelerate their renewal. Malassezia, a fungus found naturally on the scalp, breaks down scalp oils to create oleic acid. If you have a sensitivity to oleic acid, this is when dandruff develops. Tiredness, hormonal changes and stress can also make the appearance of dandruff worse.
