Other then dryness the main reason why we suffer with dandruff is yeast. When yeast tends to over grow in our scalp it causes dandruff and yeast tends to feed on oil and dead skin cells, which causes rapid increase in dandruff.

Oils have saturated fatty acid and yeast which causes dandruff feeds on those fatty acids and spreads even more. It will cause increase in the amount of dandruff and even trigger hair fall.
