I have dandruff. There I said it. (And, that's a big step for me.)
Ok, ok so it's not the end of the world and, yeah, it's a super-common condition, but the whole thing just sort of freaks me out. Plus, I have a problem with letting some pesky little flakes dictate my wardrobe. I will wear black when I want to -- got that??
The good news for me and my fellow itchy-heads is that science has come a long way in recent years and there are plenty of shampoos, conditioners and even brushes (!) to help us tame the flaky white beast.
In fact, there's such a glut of product out there that figuring out what works and what doesn't can be more aggravating than the dandruff itself! (Eh, maybe not).
