Can dandruff lead to hair loss?

Dandruff, in other words pityriasis capitis is a common condition, which affects around 50 percent of the world’s total adult population sometime in their life. Pityriasis capitis usually leads to flakes on the skin and a very itching feeling. Fortunately, dandruff is not a direct cause of hair loss. However, excessive scratching of the scalp to severe dandruff can damage hair follicles and over time hair loss. That’s why it is important to treat your scalp with proper care and avoid severe scratching. When you are already suffering from hair loss you can use pills for hair growth to combat the hair loss.

How to treat your scalp properly?

Some other tips for properly caring for you scalp are:

  1. Keep it clean: regularly washing your hair with a gentle exfoliating shampoo can help remove dirt, oil, and other build up that can contribute to different scalp conditions. Peeling, exfoliating, and nourishing your scalp with Neofollics’ treatment for advanced scalp conditions, can also help to remove dead skin cells, unclog hair follicles, and improve overall scalp health.
  2. Avoid tight hairstyles: hairstyles that pull tightly on the hair, such as braids or tight ponytails can cause traction alopecia, which results to hair loss by repeated tension on the hair roots.
  3. Choose your hair care products with care: certain hair products, such as styling gels and sprays can contribute to build up on the scalp, which can cause clogged hair follicles and cause scalp irritation. You should also avoid sulphates, parabens, and silicones because these can cause hair loss.
  4. Limit heat styling: excessive heat styling, such as flat-ironing and blow- drying can cause damage to your hair and scalp.
