Information on Dandruff

DescriptionAlso called seborrheic dermatitis, dandruff is an inflammatory disease of the scalp accompanied by scaling of the skin and involves the sebaceous (lubricating) glands. Herbalists often relate the problem to food allergies, and an avoidance of milk and wheat products might help relieve the condition.
Treatment PlanAn herbal program can consist of a blood-moving, anti-inflammatory herbal rinse, and a tea of mucolytic, mucus-clearing or dissolving, herbs.
