Dandruff is a problem for everyone of us! Simply speaking dandruff is the shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp – a process which ends up with the revival of the new skin.
It happens normally, in case of a healthy skin.
As the epidermal layer continually replaces itself, cells are pushed outward where they eventually die and flake off. For most individuals, these flakes of skin are too small to be visible.
However, certain conditions cause cell turnover to be unusually rapid, especially in the scalp.But when some infection gets into our body or we suffer from some illnesses, processes going on in our skin can change.
1. Scalp shedding
Small, thin cells of skin fall out which is NOT the result of any infection.
2. dry dandruff
Bigger, thicker, grey skin cells falling out which can be caused by some fungus. Fungus lives in the skin between the follicles and severs the skin cells above itself in bigger pieces.
3. Greasy dandruff
Not the skin cells fall out of the sclap but -due to some bacteria and fungus infection in the follicles and in the sebaceous glands- the hair itself will come offl. The symptoms are itchy scalp and falling hair. If we scratch our scalp because of the itchiness we can see yellowish oily clumps under our fingernails. It is full of bacteria! The infection still remains after the hair falls out. This time only the cebaseour gland is involved and pimples will appear on the skin and scalp.
In many cases dandruff is caused by the overproduction of the sebaceous glands in the scalp. In this photo taken with a microcamre you can see the substance stuck on the hair and in the root of the hair.
Unfortunately it increases the problem because it covers the skin and stops the process of metabolism and results a further increasing dying of skin cells and itchiness.
First, this is a big, greasy piece of dandruff blocking the follicle.
The substance produced by the gland cannot leave the gland...
it surrounds the root of the hair and kills it.
After the treatment a hair like this will fall out the follicle.
In the empty follicle the production of the new hair can be sparkled. And it work: you can see 3 new hairs coming out of this follicle.
Many-many tiny new hairs coming out the follicles.
New haris are growing among the old ones.
New hairs are booming inside the scalp as you can see it in the image taken by a polarized microscope.
Many people do not realize that they should not learn to live with dandruff. Many people do not even know that if dandruff is not treated they can loose their entire hair...slowly but surely.
Do not loose your hair!
