Are you old enough to remember when dandruff was a big thing in our culture? There was a time when you could walk into a church service and see somebody scratching their head or you could see the little white flecks of skin on a dark piece of clothing.
I remember having dandruff and the times when I would sit in front of the television scratching my head with a comb. I was maybe teen or pre-teen. And I had lots of hair and now I don't. Television commercials were dominated by dandruff shampoos like Head & Shoulders and others. Dandruff was a condition that really touched our culture.
Look around you. Do you see any evidence of dandruff? White specks on people's clothing? Shelves of anti-dandruff products in stores? Head scratching?
One minute it was there and the next it was gone. Could it be that there are lots of aging baby-boomers who have little or no hair? Does baldness make a difference? Where do shampoo-makers advertise these days?
The top of my head is pretty much hairless these days. Check this picture of me five-years ago when my oldest grandson was born. I had a hint of hair. Today, the hint has vanished.
