With the coming of winter comes the dreadful white flaky dandruff that can be a total buzzkill to your otherwise 'Good Hair Day.' Dandruff can in turn lead to many more hair problems like hairfall and scalp problems. Dandruff is the sign of a poor scalp health probably because you're not washing it as often as your hair requires or simply that your otherwise regular and 'loved' shampoo, is not really doing much for the benefit of the hair. One of the most common hair and scalp problems, dandruff can for most part be just annoying because that puts you in a conscious spot to wear dark coloured outfits comfortably.
