Can You Tell What's A Myth And What’s Legit In This Dandruff Quiz?

No one chooses to have dandruff but knowing the facts about your scalp health can help you treat it effectively, as can Neutrogena’s T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo. The only scalp therapy with Neutar, it’s clinically proven for a triple effect to fight flakes, soothe itching and calm redness.

  1. My dry scalp causes dandruff.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Your dry scalp may be a symptom of dandruff.

    Dandruff may be caused by the yeast-like fungus Malassezia, which is present on the scalps of most people. Malassezia's by-product is oleic acid, which can irritate the scalps of those who are sensitive to it, and this causes the dry scalp you may associate with dandruff.

  2. Any old shampoo can help me get rid of my dandruff.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    You may need a specific dandruff shampoo!

    Dandruff shampoos are formulated so that they help to treat the root cause of the issue.

  3. You can catch dandruff.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Dandruff is not contagious or infectious.

    Rest a-sheared, it cannot be passed from person to person!

  4. Scratching away flakes will help!

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Try not to scratch!

    Easier said than done, but if you have the urge to scratch, you should fight it, as scratching could actually make the situation worse leading to more irritation.

  5. Dandruff is caused by a lack of personal hygiene.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Dandruff is not caused by a lack of personal hygiene!

    While poor hygiene may not be the cause of your dandruff, it may make it more noticeable! If you're a man, you might find that you are more prone to having dandruff — it is speculated that this may be due to male hormones.

  6. Stress and cold weather can make dandruff worse.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Yep, this one is true!

    Stress and cold weather are both separately cited as factors that can increase the chances of having a dandruff flare-up!

  7. I'll grow out of having dandruff one day.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Unfortunately, for many people the problem could be lifelong.
