One of you recently emailed me this beauty question: My scalp is suddenly flaking. Is it dry skin or dandruff? And when I read it, I immediately scratched my head—not because I was stumped, but because I’ve been having the exact same issue!
This happens a lot in the winter. The dry air is sucking the moisture out of your skin—including the skin on your scalp, which causes it to flake. You’ll know that it’s dry skin and not dandruff because the flakes are very small (dandruff tends to have larger, irregular-shaped flakes).
