- Dandruff is a harmless, chronic condition that occurs when the scalp becomes dry or greasy due to excessive secretions from the skin of the scalp and produces white flakes of dead skin that appear in the hair or on the shoulders. Most often people think of dandruff as anything that produces a flaky scalp.
- Dandruff flakes reappear after some time because most of the shampoos wash away the flakes that appear on the scalp. They treat the symptoms successfully but don't address the underlying cause, which is an unhealthy or undernourished scalp. The severity of dandruff worsens during winter season. In case flakes reappear, continue to use Ketomac Shampoo occasionally.
