How to get rid of dandruff

Dandruff is a condition in which the cells of the skin and scalp overproduce, causing sloughing, flaking, and more oil gland production.  The skin also houses a mild amount of fungus – yes, unfortunately, this is quite normal and a part of all of our normal healthy bodies.  However, occasionally, this fungus can overgrow.  This can occur not only on the scalp, but also anywhere there is a greater amount of oil glands – like on the eyebrows, around the crease of the nose, around the ears, and on the upper chest or upper back. 

In some, dandruff can be itchy if severe.  And the flaking can be cosmetically distressing, especially when wearing dark or black clothing, where the sloughing of the skin seems to be more apparent.
