Healthy, beautiful hair starts with a healthy scalp. If your scalp is dry and itchy, you don’t have to suffer in silence! Treat it right with the perfect balance of moisturizing and cleansing. You’ll see (and feel) the difference!
- Scalp issues can arise for a few different reasons. If your scalp is suffering from build-up, use a clarifying shampoo once or twice a week. If your scalp is dry, a moisturizing shampoo, which focuses on the hair more than the scalp, may not be enough. Look for a regimen that is specifically formulated to hydrate the scalp instead.
- Avoid scratching your scalp. Instead, massage conditioner into your scalp after shampooing, it will help moisturize the skin while removing some of the excess cells. You can also use a scalp exfoliator for the same purpose.
- Hair products that contain tea tree oil or other types of oils may help moisturize and soothe your scalp.
If you follow these tips and continue to have problems with your scalp, talk to your stylist. He or she will be able to tell you which products will work best for your specific condition. They’ll also help you decide whether your situation is worthy of a trip to the dermatologist.
