Its seems to be frustrating or even embarrassing to sit in front of others if you are having dandruff on your clothes.There is hardly any person that doesn't get suffered from the problem of itching or dandruff. Thus this is the very common problem one have to face but the good thing about it is that it can be cured

Dandruff is usually two fungi, Malassezia Furfur and Pityrosporum ovale, that reside in the human body. The fungus sometimes creates an imbalance, so that the renewal of skin cells leads to an overload of dead cells being shed. Most of the dandruff shampoos which claim to reduce dandruff , however they contains many more chemical which when applied on skin, there are more chances of an adverse reaction.

Hormonal imbalance because dandruff usually starts after puberty and is more common in men than women.Dandruff problem can be hereditary too.
