The white scales that come off successively are in fact nothing more than small patches of skin. This is normally renewed every month, but an imbalance in the scalp caused by a fungus accelerates the cycle. New cells chase those on the surface, which eventually fall before their turn. Normally this dead skin is removed without you noticing, but in the case of dandruff, it quickly accumulates into unsightly patches. The skin is constantly irritated and scratching will only makes things worse.
After a humid summer, the heating in our homes produces drier air that can trigger the appearance of dandruff, as well as stress, poorly adapted care products, a hot hair dryer, or a high fever for example.

Every scalp is different, and everyone needs an appropriate solution.
