Did you know that these cause dry and itchy scalp?

MAJOR CAUSES OF A DRY AND ITCHY SCALP

 

Β 
Internal factors that can cause a dry and itchy scalp include:
  • Skin conditions such as Atopic Dermatitis or Psoriasis
  • Age – the older you get, the dryer your skin becomes
  • Physical or emotional stress
  • Genetic factors
  • Hormonal changes

 

External factors that can cause a dry, itchy scalp include:
  • Changes in temperature or seasons
  • Lifestyle factors, such as poor diet or smoking
  • Certain medications
  • Environmental pollution
  • Cosmetic shampoos, soaps and hair treatments

 

Once your scalp’s natural moisture is lost, its protective layer can become compromised. This can allow harmful substances to easily penetrate the skin, leading to micro-inflammations of the scalp. These micro-inflammations can cause your scalp to become even more irritated – leading to itching, redness, and a sensation of tautness.

  • Moisture is lost, causing dryness
  • Microinflammations cause further irritation
  • Scalp becomes itchy
