Word! Dandruff

Word! Dandruff

Dandruff

(En español: Caspa)

Say: dan-druf

Dandruff is flakes of dead skin on your head that come loose all the time, but especially when you scratch your head, brush your hair, or pull a shirt over your head. Sometimes, during puberty, your oil glands go a little wild and you develop a lot more dandruff than normal. But with the right shampoo or medicine, you can fight that flaky feeling.
