Dandruff and hair fall are the most common problems that most of us face. Dandruff is a common scalp disorder that can be very vexing. It generally occurs due to dry and irritated skin. Some people with dandruff go on to develop hair loss. In most cases, dandruff doesn't directly cause hair loss. However, the itchiness it causes can lead to scalp problems. This can injure your hair follicles, leading to hair loss. Preventing dandruff-related hair loss focuses on eliminating as much itchiness as possible. This will reduce your urge to scratch and protect your hair follicles against further damage. However, if diagnosed right, you can control both dandruff and hair fall with certain home remedies that are natural and effective in saving your locks.
