OILY Dandruff vs. DRY Dandruff: Learn the Causes & Differences


Did know that there are two distinct types of dandruff? If you’re interested, stick around! Let’s delve into all the intricate details that you need to know about it!

What is Dandruff?

Dandruff flakes are a result of the natural shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp. Excessive clumping and flaking happen when the scalp becomes either too dry or overly oily. The severity of dandruff increases with the rapidity of dead skin cell shedding.


There are 2 types of Dandruff: Dry dandruff and Oily dandruff

Dandruff is an extremely prevalent scalp condition that manifests in two forms: “OILY dandruff” and “DRY dandruff”. If left untreated, the symptoms can exacerbate and escalate. It is crucial to address this issue using the appropriate methods.

Quick reminder
Beware of products that claim to treat dandruff or control oil but contain Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), a surfactant that not only removes dirt but also strips away the natural moisturizers on your scalp. Consequently, your scalp may produce even more oil to protect itself, resulting in greasiness. Choose wisely to maintain a healthy balance.
