Dandruff treatment in Nashik

The most embarrassing thing that could happen when you're dressed up for an interview or a formal dinner is the need to scratch an itchy scalp and also know that a cascade of white flakes would follow, onto a jet black. Dandruff is a medical problem that has united over half the adult population across the globe. Dandruff is a condition caused by a fungus, Malassezia, which feeds on sebum and dead skin cells, both of which occur naturally. Although this microbe is a normal part of the hair, it can become problematic when it becomes a problem because the fungus feeds on the skin's oils. The dead skin cells accumulate into visible flakes, which is the reason for the dry and itchy scalp. Acute or mild Dandruff can be determined by the level of sensitivity of the person.
