Research has shown that an irritated scalp can actually damage the hair. When hair grows from a dandruff-affected scalp it has significantly more cuticle and protein damage than hair that grows from a healthy scalp.
Plus, if you have an itchy scalp as a result of your dandruff then any itching and scratching could further damage the hair, causing it to break more easily.
So if you have dandruff, while your hair may grow at the same rate, the hair that grows is likely to be less healthy and more prone to damage and breakage.
