What Causes Dandruff?

Dandruff is a common skin condition that causes the white flakes of skin to appear in the hair and the scalp.  While it isn’t dangerous or contagious, it can be difficult to get rid of it. The problem has nothing to do with hygiene, and everything to do with having a dry and itchy scalp.
