Dandruff is a chronic condition that occurs when the scalp becomes dry or greasy and produces white flakes of dead skin that appear in the hair or on the shoulders. Dandruff can be caused by a number of things, including dry skin, sensitivity to hair products, and skin conditions such as psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, or eczema and also by stress, hormones, too much oil on the scalp, or problems with the immune system. The symptoms of dandruff include white flakes of dead skin in the hair and on the shoulders, as well as an itchy, red, or scaly scalp. Ayurveda places the problem of dandruff in the category of ‘Shudra Roga’, which appears due to an imbalance of all three doshas. The primary doshas involved are Pitta and Vata. Contamination of the deep tissues and aggravated Vata-Pitta Dosha cause itching and patches on scalp.There are 73 Ayurveda medicines which are natural and had no side effects, which cures dandruff.
