Suppose you are in a very important meeting and you feel that you urgently need to scratch your scalp. What is worse is that this will be accompanied white flakes on your shoulder. Dandruff becomes all the more prominent if you are wearing black clothes.

Dandruff is a medical problem in which the scalp itches because of a fungus, Malassezia, which feeds on sebum (the oily matter secreted on our scalp) and the dead skin cells which occur naturally as the new skin forms. Malassezia thrive in moist environments and so it becomes a problem during summers and monsoons due to excessive humidity and sweating. But the cold wind during winters make the scalp dry resulting in itching and flaking.

This microbe is a normal part of the scalp but it cause problems when it feeds on sebum, breaking it down into fatty acids that may cause irritation in the scalp of many people. This leads to dryness and itchiness on the scalp, resulting in the accumulation of the dead skin cells into visible flakes. Whether you will develop acute or mild dandruff depends on how sensitive you are to fatty acids.
