Itchy Scalp or Dry Scalp Remedies
Dry Scalp Treatment Care Ritual
As the winter season kicks in, it’s important that we look after the scalp. The heating indoors can cause hair to become dry and it’s vital to restore care for the scalp and hair to prevent all sorts of unwanted nasties like itchy scalp, dry scalp or dandruff.
There are three common conditions of the scalp; itchy scalp, dry scalp and sensitive scalp. It doesn’t matter whether you suffer from dandruff or not – these conditions all need to be treated.
The skin on your scalp is the most sensitive skin on your body; it contains the most blood vessels and lots of nerve endings. Most people will agree that itching scalp is at best a very irritating problem, and at worst, a serious health ailment that can negative affect sleep, concentration levels, and ability to perform many day-to-day functions.
If you are a heavy user of chemical products or processes like hair coloring, bleaching, straightening and perms you can count that sooner or later you’re going to have some pretty strong reaction from your scalp.
Harsh shampoo which contain fragrances and preservative should also be avoided and certainly make sure that you rinse thoroughly after shampooing as excess shampoo residue can be a very common cause of dry scalp conditions.
Weather conditions can also cause many scalp irritations, so get in the habit of wearing a hat when outdoors. But whatever the cause the real question comes down to “what do I do with dry itchy scalp?” I got the inside scoop from Creative Beauty Director Peter Lux and celebrity head masseuse Nuz Shugga in a new video that talks you through maintaining a healthy scalp and how a good head massage and the right beauty ritual can work wonders.
Additionally, the Mayo Clinic has an abundance of information and resources about itchy skin and skin conditions.
