What shampoos are best for dandruff?
Dandruff is not only unsightly but it can be very itchy and irritating. What is dandruff anyway? Dandruff is an accumulation of dead skin cells. Oil from the scalp causes the skin cells to clump together and appear as white flakes. Dandruff can be caused by a number of things, including dry skin and medical conditions such as seborrhea dermatitis or eczema.
