This treatment is for chronic dandruff sufferers. Chronic dandruff occurs when the fungus known as Malassezia furfur grows out of control and feeds on the oil or sebum secreted by the hair follicles. All skin cells die and are subsequently replaced by new skin cells in a never-ending cycle. In normal people this cycle takes about 1 month and is usually not noticeable. But on scalps were malassezia thrives, the whole process can take as little as 11 days. The result is that is a large number of dead skin cells, irritation, itching or dandruff. This interaction between malassezia and sebum causes irritation in the scalp and leads to increased cell turnover. In people with oily hair, this turnover can increase.
