Meaning of Dandruff
Dandruff is the shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp. Some people, however, experience an unusually large amount of flaking either chronically or as a result of certain triggers, up to 800,000 cells/cm2, which can also be accompanied by redness and irritation. - See link


Dandruff in Spanish is Caspa
La caspa (Pityriasis Simplex o Furfuracea) es la formación no siempre excesiva de hojuelas o costras de piel muerta formada en el cuero cabelludo. A pesar de que es normal que las células de piel se mueran y formen hojuelas, algunas personas, ya sea crónicamente o como resultado de ciertas dolencias, experimentan una cantidad anormal de estas, lo cual suele ser acompañado de prurito, enrojecimiento e irritación. La mayoría de las causas pueden ser tratadas con un champú especial o con remedios caseros comunes. - See link
