In brief: Dandruff

Dandruff is one condition that is authenticated to the scalp.
There are two forms in which dandruff can occur: oily; and dry. Those who have an oily scalp, could feel very itchy, eliciting the oil sediments in the form of minuscule granular particles. When the dandruff is dry in nature, the texture would be loose and flaky. They are characterized by parched and coarse scabs on the scalp.
