Dandruff is caused by a dry scalp.
False. It’s actually caused by yeast called Malassezia which lives on everyone’s scalp. At least 50% of the world’s population will suffer from dandruff at some point in their lives.

Stress can make dry scalps even drier.
True. Environmental conditions, stress and other factors can make the condition worse. The best solution is to sleep well, get regular exercise and spend more time doing relaxing activities during your downtime.

Washing hair less frequently helps to reduce dandruff.
False. The yeast Malassezia that causes your skin to react with dandruff actually feeds on scalp oils or sebum. By washing your hair less, the yeast will have more food to feed on – helping the dandruff to thrive.

Human hair develops an ‘immunity’ to the same shampoo after a while.
False. There’s no evidence to suggest hair becomes used to a shampoo after repeated use.
