Dealing With Dandruff

If you've ever wondered what all that white stuff coming off your head is, we'll give you a hint - it's not a major weather system, it's just dandruff. Get the 411 on this scalp condition that is totally treatable!

What Is Dandruff?

Dandruff is a mix of dead skin cells, dirt, and oil. At the base of each hair on your head, you have glands which release oil. Sometimes they release too much. It mixes with the dead skin on your head and the dirt in the air. Eventually this mix breaks off in white clumps and falls off your head in white flakes. That's kind of gross - especially when every time you shake your head, your friends think they're at a Colorado Ski Resort.

How to Treat Dandruff

A little dandruff is pretty normal for everyone. You can get rid of it by just brushing it off or washing your hair more often. If that doesn't work, there are special shampoos you can get as well, like Head & Shoulders. And if that still doesn't do the trick, just shave your head! Yeah, that's it - go bald. Aliens go bald and so do tons of basketball players - so why not try it too? Or if it gets really bad, you could just shake it all off, then have dandruff ball fights with your friends.

Last Resort for treating Dandruff

If your dandruff problem actually gets to the point where you can go snowboarding in your flakes, go see your doctor. Just remember, every one gets a little dandruff, so you shouldn't stress too much.
