Getting to the Root of Seasonal Dandruff

Q: Is there a connection between the seasons and dandruff? 

A: If you’ve noticed more flakes, dryness, irritation, and inflammation when the temperature dips or your dandruff seems to flare up in hot and humid weather, it’s not all in your head. Dandruff can happen any time of the year, however there are links between high humidity, cooler temperatures, and dandruff. 

The first step to understanding the cause of your dandruff and why symptoms flare up during certain seasons is key to understanding how and when to treat it. 
Dandruff can seem more prevalent during the fall and winter—and we’re here to help you find the best treatment options to fight the symptoms of  your seasonal dandruff.


Cold climates, humidity, and dandruff

When the temperature drops and the humidity plunges, our skin (including the skin on our scalps!) becomes much more vulnerable to dryness, lots of flakes, and itching. In the warmer months, our skin soaks up more exposure to the sun—and sunlight naturally inhibits the growth of the yeast that causes dandruff

When the air is dry and there’s less moisture in the air, our scalp can also become dry, itchy and irritated; exacerbating the effects of dandruff. It’s also common for people to wash their hair less often in the colder months because they’re not sweating as often, which might explain why so many people feel that their dandruff is triggered by colder climates.  

Humidity can give your skin a moisturized, dewy glow, but it can also wreak havoc on your scalp. When your body is working harder to regulate your body and you're sweating more often in high heat, this can lead to more opportunities for excess oil production, buildup, and congested pores filled with bacteria to cause irritation, dryness, and flakes on your scalp.
