Get rid of Dandruff with Biotin (a B vitamin) successfully.


Overview

Dandruff is a condition mainly affects the scalp causing flakes of skin to appear. It may or not be accompanied by itching.

  The greatest number of sebaceous (oil) glands are found on the face and scalp. Sebum, the only oily secretion, lubricates the hair and scalp in order to keep both soft and pliable. Excess sebum may collect to form dandruff.
  Dandruff is a covering of dead skin that prevents new hair from growing, because it cannot break through the dead skin. A scaling or flaking of scalp cells results.

Causes
There are no exact known causes of Dandruff. One theory is that it is linked to hormone production, as it often begins around the time of puberty.  
  A change in the surface cells of the scalp results in a scaling or flaking. This change is especially keyed to nutritional deficiencies. It often occurs in those with oily skin who are prone to develop superficial, acute, and chronic bacterial skin conditions.
  There is generally excess secretion of oil in the sebaceous glands. It is this oil which binds the cells together on the scalp. Nutritional deficiencies can cause these abnormal secretions.

Diet and Ingredients to be used for treatment of Dandruff
1.Biotin, a B vitamin, is a major anti-dandruff compound. Take 6 mg daily. It treats both dandruff and the related seborrhea condition (over activity of the sebaceous glands, resulting in an excessive amount of sebum). A handful of soybeans contains the 6 mg of biotin. Garlic is second biotin content, followed by oats, barley, avocado, alfalfa, sesame, and corn.
