Dandruff trouble and cure

Defining Dandruff

Dandruff can be defined as Scaly white dead skin flakes from the human scalp. Dandruff is a common condition involving an increased rate of shedding of dead epidermal (outer layer of the skin) cells of the scalp that causes flaky, white to grayish scales to form, and is usually accompanied by itching.
Causes and Cure:

Basically dandruff is caused by the natural oils of the scalp mixed with dead skin cells. It is a never ending process for the scalp to release natural oils which in turn cause a build up of dead skin cells if not dealt with accordingly.

The main types of dandruff are dry scalp dandruff and oily scalp dandruff , but dandruff sufferers will know one day you have the dry dandruff and the next you find you have those horrible yellowy oily flakes. With this confusion of dry and oily going on it can be almost impossible to find the right product as most shampoo's have either dry or oily scalp written on the front of the bottle.

The best treatment for this requires killing bacteria, reducing inflammation and soothing the infected tissue. Do you have any idea about what causes scalp sores?
