Dandruff snampoo: Dandruff is simply old skin cells that fail to detach & shed over time due to persistence of the bond between cells. Dandruff shampoos contain the chemicals needed to promote natural separation. Oily skin or thick layers may need pretreatment with a variety of methods or repeated treatments to remove resistant flakes. Some times this is not dandruff.
