1.) What is Dandruff?
Dandruff (pityriasis capitis) is a common condition in which the scalp is covered with small flakes of dead skin. The flakes, which come away when the hair is brushed or combed, represent an increase in the normal loss of the outermost skin layer. One type of dandruff accompanied by inflammation of the scalp is called seborrheic dermatitis. If, too little sebum is produced, the hair becomes dry and brittle, with the formation of white skin flakes. However, too much sebum gives greasy hair and yellow flakes.
Dandruff can happen at any age but is most commonly seen after the age of 12. Dandruff is associated with a tiny fungus called Pityrosporum ovale, (P. ovale). This fungus lives on our bodies and scalp all the time, usually without causing a problem. Unfortunately, for some people, it can increase in numbers, causing dandruff.
2.) What are the causes of dandruff?
Internal Causes of Dandruff : Hormonal imbalance, poor health, excessive perspiration, poor hygiene, allergic hypersensitivity, lack of rest, emotional stress, excessive consumption of sugar, fat, starch, hereditary predisposition.
External Causes of Dandruff : Excessive use of hairsprays and gels, cold weather and dry indoor heating, tight fitting hats and scarves, stress, anxiety and tension, infrequent shampooing of the hair or inadequate rinsing, improper use of hair-colouring products or excessive use of electric hair curlers.
3.) What is Perkhotal?
Perkhotal shampoo contains Ketoconazole, a medically proven ingredient, which deals with the root cause of dandruff and provides long-lasting cure without irritating the scalp.
