Does the sound of scraping off dandruff from a scalp soothe you?
The Doctors share ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) videos of people combing out large flakes of dandruff from their scalp, and while ER physician Dr. Travis Stork and plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon are sort of grossed out by the videos, OB/GYN Dr. Nita Ladry admits, “I don’t hate it.”
So why are so many people fascinated with this type of content? Psychotherapist Dr. Mike Dow compares it to seeing a car accident, “You just can’t look away.” He also explains that grooming is thought of as a form of caretaking among mammals, and the act of grooming, or witnessing grooming can be soothing for some.
As for the YouTube star in the dandruff scraping video, she told The Doctors, “Trolls will be trolls, but it’s just my scalp. There are so many that suffer from dandruff… and so many get satisfaction from the flakes. Who am I to judge?”
