Dandruff is a condition that causes flaky skin to form on the scalp of little ones and even some adults. Dandruff is also known as seborrhea or seborrheic dermatitis.

The flaky skin is whitish or yellowish. In some kids, dandruff is known to cause redness and itchiness on the affected area. Failure to treat dandruff properly may lead to hair loss.

When your kid suffers from dandruff you may decide to use medicated shampoo to get rid of it. The frequency of use of the shampoo depends on the severity of the dandruff. If not so severe then the shampoo will be used a few times per week. On the days when the shampoo is not being used allow the kid to wash their hair with regular shampoo to ensure the hair stays clean.

2.    Stay Away from Conditioners and Other Styling Products

If your kid had been using a conditioner before it is advisable that you stay away from it for now. Sensitivity to certain hair products is a known cause of dandruff. After the dandruff has been healed try using different hair products.
