Dandruff is a very annoying problem. She especially scares the fair sex. This is not surprising, because a neat appearance plays a huge role in modern life.
In one form or another, almost everyone faces flaking of the scalp. It can be a natural renewal of the skin or an unpleasant physiological problem called dandruff. Remember that light-colored scales are nothing more than dead skin particles. The body gets rid of old cells that may contain harmful substances and microbes.
Probably many have heard that dandruff is contagious. When the head and clothes of friends or colleagues are covered with light scales, anxiety and some unpleasant feeling involuntarily appear … Is it really possible to get dandruff? Fortunately, this is only a myth, although it has been around for quite some time. Dandruff is not an infection; in itself, it is completely harmless. To date, there is no evidence that dandruff is transmitted from person to person.
However, you should never forget about personal hygiene. Never use someone else's combs or towels. Keep your personal belongings clean and occasionally rinse combs and brushes with a baking soda solution or other product. Remember to replace your personal hygiene items on time. You need to be especially careful with wooden combs and combs, as they absorb fat quite well, which means that microbes can multiply in them. Replace wooden utensils about every six months.
The main cause of dandruff is the activity of some tiny fungi. Here they can be transferred from one person to another. However, this shouldn't scare you. The fact is that such fungi in some quantities live on the skin of every person, but it is far from the fact that dandruff will appear from this. It all depends on the general condition of your skin and immunity.
Dandruff often appears as a concomitant phenomenon in various chronic diseases, stress, climate change, etc. If you unexpectedly encountered this problem, it does not mean that you "got dandruff" from someone. Most likely, your immunity has simply decreased. Try not only to use special anti-dandruff shampoos and conditioners, but also to adjust your diet and daily routine. Spend more time outdoors, try to get enough sleep, take vitamins, because the skin and hair are just a reflection of the internal state of the body.
