Women love wearing a little black dress, and for men, a dark suit is a staple. But if you've got dandruff, wearing black will spill your secret. Why do you get those flakes? Dandruff is caused by a fungus called malassezia. It normally lives on our scalps but sometimes there is an overgrowth. The extra cells die and fall off, resulting in the dreaded white flakes. This condition is known as seborrheic dermatitis. If it gets worse you can shed greasy yellow flakes. A combination of genetics, stress, climate and overall health are behind its cause. A common skin disorder, psoriasis, can also crop up anywhere on your body, including your scalp. You'll get flakes, itching and sometimes, reddened skin. A giveaway sign for psoriasis though is that the scalp usually develops a silvery white surface. When treating dandruff you'll want certain ingredients in your shampoo depending on your condition. Zinc pyrithione cuts down on scalp fungus so it's good against seborrheic dermatitis and malassezia. In addition, the active ingredient ketoconazole can fight a variety of fungi. Tar based shampoos slow down the speed at which scalp cells die, while salicylic acid shampoos remove dead skin. These shampoos are best for people with psoriasis. For best results, use one of these shampoos at least every other day. If you want to go for a more natural alternative, tea tree oil has antifungal components that help fight the flakes. If you're still seeing flakes your dermatologist can offer a prescription strength shampoo. To prevent dandruff from forming, try cutting down on hair product use, manage your stress and eat a healthy diet. And whatever you do, stop scratching. This can just make the flakes worse and more noticeable. For more haircare tips, watch more videos in this series.More »

Dandruff is often associated with oil but a dry scalp can also cause those dreaded white flakes. So what's at the root of your hair's dryness? A parched and itchy scalp could be the result of many factors. Over-shampooing, over-styling, even blame it on the weather. Dry and windy winter air and hot summer sun can both lead to scalp dryness. Take a look at your bathtime behavior. Don't shampoo every day. It washes away the natural oils that help condition your scalp and hair. When you do shampoo, use a product marked for dry scalp. It'll have ingredients such as coal tar, selenium sulfide, and salicylic acid, for example. Massage in the shampoo with your fingertips, not your nails, and follow up with a low alcohol conditioner. A little less styling can help out your dry scalp. If you're used to blowdrying every day, go natural once in awhile. And space out your coloring jobs a little more, if you can. Using a humidifier at home during cold dry days can help with weather-related dry scalp. In the summer, make sure to wear a hat for protection against the sun. Even though your scalp is hidden by hair, it's still at risk for sun damage. For additional haircare tips and tricks, watch other videos in this series.More »

Scalp pimples hide under your hair, so you might not even know about them until you brush over them -- ouch! Your scalp is skin too, which means it's prone to the same issues as the rest of your body. Scalp acne, or folliculitis, means that bacteria are growing inside your hair follicles. And when bacteria swarm in, the pore can get irritated and more inflamed. You don't want to pop the pimple, leaving the pore open to more bacteria and infection. So what should you do to beat the folliculitis? Many over the counter products use benzoyl peroxide, but you don't want to use this on your head. It can discolor or bleach your hair. Instead, use a shampoo with salicylic acid, which will clean out the dead skin cells and help unclog your pores. If you can get at your pimple easily, which is tough if you have thick hair, you can also treat it with the same salicylic based product you'd use on your face. Just dab it on the spot with a cotton ball. To prevent folliculitis before it forms, keep your scalp clean by sticking to a shampoo made for oily hair and cut back on how much product you use. If you have to use gel, spray or hair mousse and other products, pick one that's light and petroleum free. The follicles might get infected if you shaved over your head, sweated severely, your scalp's been covered for awhile or you've been in a warm and wet area for a long time. Sometimes, folliculitis goes away on its own. If it doesn't, your doctor can prescribe an antibiotic cream and pill.

Our bodies can do some strange things-take, for example, hiccups or crying when cutting an onion. But of all our weird quirks, hair turning SUDDENLY WHITE doesn't make the list.No matter how scary that horror flick is, it's impossible for you to turn into Rogue from X-Men. Why? Hair is made up of essentially non-living cells. Once it has grown out of the scalp, the pigment can't just "Go Away." But there ARE a number of conditions-BESIDES fright-that CAN cause your hair to turn white over time. Or in SOME cases, make it SEEM like your hair is going white in a matter of days. Age is the most common reason hair turns white. Your chances of going grey increase 10-20 percent EVERY DECADE after 30. Hair becomes grey when the hair follicles stop making colored pigment. During the growing process, the pigment MELANIN gives hair its color. Experts haven't figured out WHY, but at a certain age these hair follicles STOP producing melanin. So when your hair grows, there's nothing to color it. It's possible for your hair to turn prematurely white as a side effect of a medical condition. One condition, ALOPECIA AREATA, is an autoimmune disease that causes your body to ATTACK its own follicles, resulting in hair falling out, usually in patches. When your hair grows back it's often thin and white. If you ALREADY have salt and pepper strands, a sudden alopecia areata attack can make patches of your hair seemingly turn white ALMOST overnight. Because alopecia atrea ONLY assaults follicles with melanin, colored strands can fall out leaving only white or gray hair behind. VITILIGO can also cause hair color change. This condition causes SKIN to lose color, but can also affect the SCALP. The disease destroys pigment-making cells so any new hair in the affected area grows in patches or streaks of white. To learn more about these diseases and other common hair myths, check out the rest of the videos in this series.More »

Men and women both deal with excess body hair. If you do too, you might wonder why you have so much while others have so little. Most of the time, it's a combination of genetics and hormones. People of European, Middle Eastern and South Asian ancestry often have more body hair than their East Asian and African counterparts. And there's a direct correlation between the hormone testosterone and the amount of body hair that you have. While both males and females have testosterone, males have ten times more. How sensitive your hair follicles are to testosterone is determined by their genetics. Because of their increased testosterone, men with a lot of body hair will have to work hard to remove it. Whether they choose to shave, wax, try electrolysis or laser hair removal treatments, it will be an ongoing effort. Women with increased testosterone levels can grow excess hair in areas usually associated with male hair growth. This condition, called hirsutism, is sometimes, though not always, the result of polycystic ovary syndrome. Common treatments of hirsutism include birth control pills, and anti-androgens, a class of drugs which keeps male hormones from attaching to their receptors. For women with too much facial hair, a skin cream called Vaniqa may be an option. It's the first and only approved FDA approved cream for facial hair growth in women. It targets an enzyme in the hair follicle that causes the growth. But if you think you've got it bad, consider those born with a condition called congenital hypertrichosis, the peculiar disorder offensively nicknamed the werewolf syndrome. Since the Middle Ages, there have been only fifty reported cases of people with born with hypertrichosis. But there are occasions when you can develop a milder form of hypertrichosis. Certain metabolic disorders, anorexia, and the drugs phenytoin and cyclosporine can very rarely cause it. Localized hypertrichosis can be triggered by iodine, psoralens, minoxidil, topical steroids or by wearing a plaster cast. There aren't many treatments available for hypertrichosis but you can manage it with continual shaving, waxing, epilation, electrolysis and possibly laser hair removal.

Head lice make your head very itchy. See the video for head lice causes, symptoms and treatments.

You're not immune to head lice just because you're older than 11. Anyone can get them-no matter how immaculate your personal hygiene is. But what ARE these creatures, and how can you keep them from infesting your hair? Head lice are tiny, wingless insects that LIVE on, lay EGGS on, and FEED off your scalp. Even though they're only about the size of a strawberry seed, their bites can make your head EXTREMELY itchy. This is because their left-behind saliva can trigger an allergic reaction in most people's skin. The good news... although they might make you scratchy, they AREN'T harmful and DON'T carry disease. Still, they're probably something you want to avoid. One way to avoid lice is to steer clear of other people's things. This includes sharing hats, headphones, brushes, hair elastics, and even clothing-especially if a person is infected. The EASIEST way lice can crawl, though, is from one person to another through close contact. They're so common in children because kids are CONSTANTLY playing near each other. If you're unlucky enough to bring home a family of lice, there are fairly INEXPENSIVE ways to get rid of them. You can kill them off with shampoos, lotions, and other topical medications found in almost any drugstore. Look for ones containing 1 percent permeterin or pyrethrin. Remove dead lice and their eggs--known as NITS--out of your hair with a fine tooth comb. Keep a close watch on your scalp over the next week. If over-the-counter solutions don't do the trick, your doctor can prescribe something stronger. Malathion, Lindane, or Benzyl alcohol lotions, creams and shampoos can be rubbed into the scalp to take care of critters once and for all. Lice don't survive very long without a food source. So getting rid of them from your house takes a thorough cleaning. Make sure to wash ALL the clothes and bedding you used before treatment in water measuring at least 130 degrees. If it can't be washed, have it dry cleaned or sealed in plastic for two weeks. For more ways to keep your scalp healthy, check out the rest of the videos in this series.More »

You've heard of fungus that grows on trees, but fungus that grows on your HEAD? Is it for real? The answer is YES and there and it's called Tinea Capitis. The good news is that it's both preventable and treatable. Tinea Capitis or ringworm of the scalp, is more common in kids under 10, but can occasionally affect adults. The fungi that cause it, called dermatophytes, are CONTAGIOUS and can be passed along by contact and by sharing things like hats. Occasionally, it can also be SPREAD to humans via cats and dogs. Other risks include poor hygiene, cuts on your scalp, or if your head has been warm and damp-say from SWEAT-for a while. If you've been infected, round bald patches--often scaly, red, and SOMETIMES pus-filled--will appear in one or more places on your head. These patches may slowly get bigger, especially if not treated. To stop a fungal infection before it spreads - or you pass it along to someone else-see your doctor for an antifungal medication. Griseofulvin or Terbinafine hydrochloride are two types of oral drugs commonly prescribed. At first, it may not seem like your condition is improving, but DON'T STOP taking your meds unless you experience side effects like diarrhea, upset stomach or a rash. It might be up to 6 weeks or more before you see results. To learn more about how to avoid other common scalp dilemmas, check out the rest of the videos in this series.More »

A sweaty day can mean OILY hair. But sweat isn't the ONLY reason for that shine. Sebum is your skin's NATURAL moisturizer. When the glands on your head kick its production into high gear, your scalp becomes OILY. So why does it seem like your oil glands are going crazy? A few factors are to blame. One of them is just the luck of the genetic draw-if a parent has oily hair, you might too. The ebb and flow of hormones also contribute to overactive oil glands. Puberty, hormonal contraception, and the menstrual cycle all cause fluctuating hormones. And if you're bulking up with hormone SUPPLEMENTS, these will ALSO affect your hormone levels. Men and women with thin, FINE locks have a HIGHER chance of an oily scalp and strands-the sebum travels easier on their head than it would on someone with curly, coarse and thick hair. Another little-known fact is that we all have FUNGUS living on our scalps. The fungus usually doesn't cause trouble, BUT its favorite food is YOUR sebum. So when the oil gets out of control, the fungus does too. The fungus feeding frenzy irritates your scalp, causing skin cells to shed and form dandruff. Because you can't exactly TRANSFORM your hair type, the next best thing is to cut down on the sheen. For oily hair, you may feel like shampooing EVERY day, but unless you've gotten sweaty and dirty, you should actually shampoo LESS. When you lather up OFTEN, your glands try to compensate by producing MORE oil. So if you CUT DOWN, you can, in effect, TRAIN your oil glands to produce LESS. When you DO shampoo, choose one with ingredients such as zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide or salicylic acid. These ingredients will cut down on fungus and eliminate the oil. These ingredients will ALSO slow down dandruff formation.MOST appropriate shampoos will be labeled as "good on oily hair". These have a higher alkaline component, which helps eliminate the oil from your scalp. When using CONDITIONER, ONLY apply it to the ENDS of your hair. Oil-prone roots DON'T need that extra moisture. Another step to eliminate is BRUSHING and COMBING your strands. It may make your locks SHINY, but all you're doing is SPREADING the oil throughout your hair and head.

You might not ever have the glimmering hair you see in shampoo commercials, but there ARE ways to make LACKLUSTER locks vibrant and healthy. First off, loading your strands with too much product will NOT help. That super-hold hair gel might look nice for a few hours, but the built-up grime will dim your natural shine. Wash your hair with a CLARIFYING shampoo once a week to eliminate residue. If you have DRY hair, use a baby shampoo instead. More often, your hair loses sheen when it's DAMAGED. The surface of each strand of hair is covered by a layer called the cuticle. It's made up of interlocking scales that SHOULD overlap tightly. When the scales don't lie flat, hair begins to show some wear and tear and won't reflect light. EVEN if you take careful care of your hair, the cuticles wear away as the strands grow. It makes sense that hair is dullest at the tips-- that's the oldest part of your strands. Your hair's gradual weathering is normal-BUT the process speeds up with friction, hair dryer heat, sunlight, chemicals and cosmetic treatments. The American Academy of Dermatology says: the less you do to your hair, the better. But they're NOT stylists. Most people can't get away without brushing or styling daily. So remember...When you use a hair dryer, keep it on a MODERATE heat setting, and don't bring it too close to your hair. If you're using a CERAMIC iron on your hair, put a moist towel inside the plates to PROTECT the hair from direct contact with the heating elements. Brushing will always cause damage by producing friction, but brushes with thicker bristles are kinder to your strands. You can use a few drops of hair serum to smooth out your hair, but DON'T apply any directly to your scalp. And, USE CONDITIONER! It slows down natural weathering by helping the thick INNER layer of your strands-the cortex--retain moisture, which in turn helps your cuticle resist the stress of combing and brushing. But conditioner won't salvage your hair once the cortex and cuticle have been heavily damaged. Your last resort? Go for a haircut, and treat your new, SHINY strands with more tender loving care!

Our hair will thin out as we age. It's a fact we ALL have to accept. But sometimes thinning hair isn't JUST the result of time marching on. The most COMMON cause of hair loss is male and female pattern hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia. People who inherit a sensitivity to the hormone DI-hydro-testosterone-DHT-experience this type of alopecia. DHT slowly SHRINKS the hair follicles until they're too small to grow normal strands. In men, this causes baldness at the crown and receding hairlines. In WOMEN, the first sign will often be a WIDENING part and then gradual thinning all over. A woman's best option for treating androgenetic alopecia is Rogaine, a topical medication with an active ingredient called minoxidil. It's applied directly to the scalp twice daily. Men can use either minoxidil OR propecia, also known as finasteride-propecia is a lower dose of a medication used to treat prostate disease.. and is NOT FDA approved for women. But it is not ALWAYS necessary to use medication to stop your hair from thinning. You may get good results just by changing your styling habits. If you style your hair every day, you MIGHT want to back off a little bit. Excessive blow drying, hair straightening and hair BRUSHING will damage your strands, causing breakage. Dermatologists recommend letting your hair AIR dry. Sometimes your hair will grow back if you simply change your hair care habits. Coloring your hair can also do damage.Besides male and female pattern hair loss, which is an inherited trait, there are other causes of thinning hair. If you're experiencing telogen effluvium, your hair started suddenly falling out about 3 months after the follicles switched from the growing stage to the telogen-or resting-stage. There are a MULTITUDE of physical or emotional stressors that could've triggered this switch.Vitamin deficiencies, EXCESS Vitamin A, weight loss, medications such as blood thinners, antidepressants, isotretinoin, birth control pills and performance enhancing steroids can ALL trigger telogen effluvium. Ask your doctor to evaluate if any of your medications are to blame. Stressful events such as a very bad breakup may also set off this type of hair loss. And finally-and I don't want to scare you-telogen effluvium is also associated with around 30 diseases, including anemia and thyroid disease. That's why it's VERY important to head to the doctor if you're experiencing rapid hair loss. If you're experiencing telogen effluvium, your hair will grow back at the rate of a half inch per month after the stressor is removed.For more hair loss info, check out the other videos in this series!More »

The cuticle, the OUTER layer of your hair, TRIES to protect the cortex, which makes up the bulk of your hair shaft, from damage. But the cuticle naturally wears down over time, and everything we do to it just SPEEDS UP the weathering. In severe cases, the cuticle gets stripped away, leaving the cortex exposed. So, let's talk about PREVENTING that unfortunate chain of events!First, be careful how you COMB your hair. Use a widely-spaced comb that slips through easily. Tugging at tangles RUFFLES the scales that coat the cuticle, damaging the strands. Be particularly gentle when brushing OR combing WET hair, which is much more vulnerable to damage.Since the scales on the cuticle point DOWN towards the tip, BACK-combing is doubly harmful. Once you pull the scales BACK-they'll slough right off the next time you brush. So ladies, skip the teasing and poofing - and guys, you, too! You'll also want to cut down on chemical salon treatments, such as hair dyes and perms. In order for your new 'do to take effect, the chemicals have to break through your cuticle, and in some cases, literally reform the chemical bonds that hold your strands together. After too many of these treatments, your hair will suffer severe damage. To minimize damage from hair dyes, stay within 3 shades of your natural color. And remember that going blonde is MORE damaging than going dark.Curling irons, straighteners and blow dryers also injure your hair. Drying reduces the all-important moisture content of your strands, while all heat appliances soften the keratin, the building block of your locks.Heat appliances also cause a condition called "bubble hair." If the temperature's too high, the minute amounts of water beneath your cuticles start BOILING, causing steam to form tiny bubbles. The affected hair will break off near the bubble.So if you ARE going to use heat for styling, make sure it's not TOO hot-and for better control, use a device with several temperature settings. It's true, you can't completely reverse the damage you've done to your frazzled cuticles, but conditioning regularly WILL help. Conditioners deposit dimethicone-a silicone compound-between cuticle scales in order to FILL IN the gaps. Other ingredients found in conditioners, such as collagen, amino acids, and B vitamins will help restore moisture content to your locks. Following these tips SHOULD help slow down your hair breakage!

Do you want to give YOUR limp, lifeless hair more BOUNCE? Well, you can! First step? Change your shampoo. Use a CLARIFYING shampoo every week to remove the residue that's weighing your hair down, whether it's hairspray or just dead skin cells. OTHER times, use a volume-boosting shampoo. It contains things like proteins that bind to your strands, making them appear thicker. The WRONG conditioner will overload your hair. Avoid using ones that contain ingredients such as lanolin or petrolatum.. Look for dimethicone or even better, cyclomethicone . Cyclomethicone has a smaller molecular structure, allowing it to evaporate faster and avoid buildup. . These increase shine and offer better manageability, but be careful of overuse, which can weigh your hair down. And when you're showering, apply the conditioner to your tips, NOT your scalp-the hair closest to your scalp is new and doesn't need as much TLC. You also need to avoid residue-causing styling PRODUCTS! Instead of overusing oil and waxes, You CAN use volumizing sprays and mousse. Volume booster products contain polymers that prop up your strands. Then, FLIP hair over when you blow-dry to "cement" the hold. Even though too much hair drying is damaging, it's important for voluminous hair because when thin hair dries naturally, it often goes limp. To minimize damage, NEVER set your hairdryer on a HOT temperature. AND, don't keep blowdrying your hair AFTER it's dry. You'll suck out too much moisture that way. Ion hairdryers are an interesting invention-they cover your strands with negative ions, which are supposed to preserve the moisture inside your strands. They've been known to make hair SHINIER. After you've dried your hair, try not to BRUSH it too much. It flattens already limp hair, and it will SPREAD the oil from your roots. And when you do comb, start from the underside out, not the top down. If you've tried all of this and nothing's worked, try out a new haircut-layers often give the ILLUSION of volume.
