The most common weather-related effects on the hair during winter come from the cold (or specifically the constant changes from cold to warm environments) and from static. Cold, dry air can cause the cuticle layer of the hair to lift, and going into a warm, dry interior environment then leeches the moisture out of the hair, leaving it dry and frizzy. This also provides the perfect conditions for static, which can make the hair very unruly.

The shedding of dead skin cells from your scalp is normal within the growing process of the cells. Your scalp is renewing constantly, just like the rest of your skin. When it happens at an excessive rate however we call it dandruff. It can happen at any age. Dandruff has nothing to do with bad hair care. Even if you wash your hair often you can still have dandruff. Dandruff that falls to the shoulders can be a real pain and many (50% of all adults according to certain studies) are affected.

There are several possible causes for dandruff: stress, bad nutrition, lack of rest, frequent use of gels and hair sprays, excessive use of hot curling irons, ... .
Dandruf is worst during cold winters and less severe during summer.

There is no lasting cure for dandruff. You can try to control it however. Use a good dandruff shampoo to get rid of it. You might have to try out several different types of shampoo before you find the one that is best for your scalp. It is important to experiment.
Remember that when you stop the treatment of your scalp and hair with dandruff shampoo, the dandruff will return.

In severe cases you will need to see a dermatologist because another scalp disease could be involved.
