Question: I'm a stylist who has been doing hair for 15 years. I have a client who has a very dry scalp, which is not unusual since we live in a very dry climate. I was reading up about dry scalp remedies here on this site, and it seems that "dandruff" is apparently the same thing. I'm obviously not a medical doctor, however I was taught that dandruff is the result of having overactive sebaceous glands ( oil producing glands) that produce thick, yellow flakes which have a pungent odor. Quite the opposite of white, dry flakes. Shouldn't the treatment options be different for these 2 very different disorders?
