Why Dandruff Shampoos Work (Even Though We Don't Know the Exact Cause of Dandruff)

We’ve all seen it — whether on ourselves or others — the telltale white flakes that accompany dandruff. Dandruff, in particular dandruff caused by seborrheic dermatitis (SD) , is often caused by overproduction of sebum (skin oils) and skin cells in addition to irritation from malassezia (a yeast-like fungus).
