Q. What are the three key things to know about dandruff?

A. So, basically the most important thing to know about dandruff is why we get it. There are three factors involved with dandruff and the first one is that there's a presence of a fungus on the scalp called Malassezia, and secondly there's a presence of sebum which is also known as oil on the scalp and the fungus basically feeds off on the sebum. The third factor that differentiates people that have dandruff from those who don't have dandruff is a genetic susceptibility towards inflammation.
