If you are tired of always seeing "snowflakes" dusting your shoulders every time you look down at your black top, girl, you are not alone. I know exactly how annoying, embarrassing, and uncomfortable dandruff can be. While some people are ashamed of dandruff because they tend to think that dandruff is a reflection of poor hygiene, the truth is, poor hygiene does not have anything to do with it. Dandruff is simply scalp flaking caused by inflammation due to your skin reacting to yeast on your scalp. Everyone has yeast living on their scalp, but it is just that some people react to it that leads to inflammation, flaky skin, and itching. But you do not have to worry about that anymore! Check out these best dandruff shampoos for African-American hair that can solve your dandruff problem.
