Dandruff In Old Age

Dandruff isn’t just something you get in your teens – you can experience it later in life too.

Dandruff affects more than half the population of the world at some point in their lives. This is especially true when your body undergoes hormonal changes.

For example, you may have experienced dandruff and an oily scalp during puberty as your hormones fluctuate.


As you get older, you may notice that your skin becomes dryer, including your scalp.

Intense dryness could indicate that you have dandruff if it’s accompanied by the common symptoms.

Other symptoms of dandruff include:

Dandruff can appear unexpectedly at any time during your life and it may occur for a number of reasons besides age.

These include:

  • stress

  • extreme hot or cold temperatures

  • changes in hair washing habits or frequency

  • genetics

  • hormonal changes or imbalances

Changes due to any of these factors as you grow older could stress your scalp skin and make it more likely for you to experience dandruff flakes and itchiness.
