Hey guys! today we are going to discuss why do we get dandruff. Dandruff is white flake on our head which
is made up of our skin cells. A yeast called Malasizia Globusa is found
on the skin of our head. After feeding on the sebum, an oily substancesecreted by our skin cells, it releases oleic acid. This olic acid causes inflammation on our
skin. This inflammation results into the rapid death of skin cells. These dead cells then shed in form of flakes, causing dandruff. But you must have noticed that not everyone has dandruff. This happens because not everyone has a skin which is sensitive to oleic acid. As a result, their cells die on a slow rate
and they don’t get dandruff. There is one more question which may be popping in your head. Why does dandruff increase during the winters? The reason behind this is sunlight. Yes, there is a connection between the two. The UVA radiation from sunlight keeps the number of melasizia in control. During the winters, less amount of sunlight is received which results in an increase of malasizia and dandruff. Another reason behind this is the cold and dry weather. Both of these makes our skin dry which causes the skin cells to shed in form of flakes. So this was all the information which you
need to know about the formation of dandruff. Share this video with your friends an family. And for more such videos subscribe to our
