Can bald people get dandruff?? In bald people it is easier to cleanse and dry the scalp thereby removing the dry skin cells so there are lesser chance that dandruff will occur in bald men.
Dandruff can happen to anyone. But for a bald person, it is less likely.
The generally accepted theory is that dandruff is caused by either too much or too little oil being produced by sebaceous glands in the scalp. Dandruff can also occur because of an overabundance of the fungus malassezia on the scalp.
Dandruff appears as dry white scales when the skin on the scalp sheds its dead cells. The problem is aggravated because of the presence of hair on the scalp. For people who are bald, many of the conditions that would promote the development of most of these issues are mitigated.
In the absence of hair, it is easy to cleanse and dry the scalp, thereby removing the dry skin cells. So, there is a far lesser chance that dandruff will occur in bald men.
