A brief description of the problem
Well we know dandruff - it is nothing like grayish-white scales, consisting of dead cells of the skin. In scope and extent of dandruff on the head is ahead of all other skin diseases, because it at least once in his life faced by everyone. Generally, people do not tend to pay dead skin cells too much attention, believing that no harm except aesthetic unattractiveness, they do not carry. Of course, this view is mistaken, because dandruff treatment is delayed until the last moment, is the main cause of the rapid hair loss. Speaking quite simply, the man who is clearly visible dandruff on the head and clothes - it is patients requiring complex treatment.
Why is it that some people have an intensive cell death of the skin of the head? As we know, healthy skin, the epidermis is composed of more than 20 layers. Each of these is periodically updated by moving to the cell surface and subsequent exfoliation. This process takes about a month of pure time. The patient has the human epidermis 10-15 layers, ie the process of tissue renewal is much faster. Cell division is accelerated, and did not have time to "die" natural "death" elements coalesce into flakes, then we can see on the hair and clothes.
The causes of dandruff
Factors that directly or indirectly affect the acceleration of the natural renewal of tissues, quite a lot. Here are the main ones:
- wearing a hat on wet hair;
- abuse perm and hair coloring;
- Stay bareheaded in the sun or cold;
- stress and fatigue;
- hormonal disorders;
- unhealthy diet;
- skin diseases.
If a person is found in his dandruff, national treatment, as well as traditional medical practices should be directed to the normalization of the structure and function of the epidermis, as well as strengthening the immune system. And yet - do not rush to apply a treatment for dandruff without prior consultation with a specialist dermatologist. The fact is that very often the rapid cell death confused with ordinary dry skin of the head, which among other things is peeling. Of course, the approach to treatment in both cases is different, so put the final diagnosis should be a doctor.
