Are You Feeling Flaky This Winter? We’re Talking Dandruff!

The cold weather has well and truly hit, and winter is just around the corner. During these chilly months, you may find that your scalp has become itchy, irritated and flaky. This is a common concern we hear throughout the winter months so, we thought we’d let you know what the flaking is, why it might be happening and how you can combat it for flake free hair. That’s right ladies and gents, we are talking about dandruff!

What is the flaking?

It’s winter and snow is falling up the mountains, so wait… how did that get on your head? Well, as you may or may not know – it’s called dandruff. But what exactly is dandruff? It’s a very common scalp condition that causes the skin to be flaky and even itchy. Don’t fear, this form of scalp condition is not serious or contagious, but we know it can be super embarrassing.

Essentially, it’s dried skin that forms cracks and scales on your scalp. That dry skin detaches from the scalp and becomes that yellow, white flaky substances that you notice around your roots or even on your shoulders.

Why is this happening?

Now that you know what dandruff is, let’s dive into why this might be happening to you. There are a few reasons that you might be experiencing this including general dry skin issues, reaction to the cold air, constant hat wearing and possible cases of fungus.

If you normally experience day-to-day dry skin, the winter seasons may make the issue worse because of the cold, icy air or even due to constant exposure to air conditioning. That’s right, even your air conditioner can cause not only your scalp to dry up but your skin all over.

It’s important to remember that your scalp is skin as well, the same way your other skin can react to the elements, so does your scalp.
