    How To Treat Dry Scalp

    You may be surprised to know that dry scalp is the number one cause of a flaky scalp.You may be more surprised to know that these flakes aren’t technically dandruff at all.

    Confused?
    Well you’re not alone.
    The shampoo industry is too. The pictures you see on the shampoo commercials are almost always dry scalp rather than “dandruff”.
    Whatever it is and whatever it’s called, treating a dry scalp is extremely straightforward.
    You’ve come to the right place…
    What causes a dry scalp
    Dry scalp is your scalp feeling dehydrated and in need of some moisture. The root cause may be in the way you are washing or treating your hair. There are many ways you can do this. These include:
    Washing your hair too much
    Using a harsh shampoo that is stripping your hair of it’s natural oils
    Using a shampoo you that irritates you or you’re even allergic to
    Washing with water that’s too hot
    Overusing the blow dryer
    Overdoing the hair products
    Improper use of hair-coloring products
    Excessive use of your curling irons
    Not rinsing well enough
    Your bathing is too hard
    If none of these seem familar there are other factors that can cause your scalp to dry out too:
    Overexposure to sunlight
    A sudden change in temperature, in particular cold, dry weather
    Hormonal changes
    A poor diet
    Dehydration
    Stress or anxiety

    What are the symptoms of a dry scalp?

    If you suffer from a dry scalp your scalp will feel tight and itchy. Your hair will feel dry, lifeless and brittle. The dry scalp may be a symptom of some other chronic condition such as psoriasis but in the majority of cases your scalp simply needs moisture. You can tell if you have a dry scalp as your dandruff will be loose, small, white and grainy. Remember the dandruff they show in the commercials is almost always dry scalp. Dandruff from scalp psoriasis is typically large brittle silver flakes as opposed to small grains. Dandruff from Serborrhoeic Dermatitis is typically yellow in color. It also often feels oily and crusty.
    How to treat dry scalp

    Treating dry scalp is a very distinct process from treating regular dandruff and a few lifestyle changes will help alleviate the problem. Keeping yourself hydrated is the number one priority. Drink plenty of water.
    If you’re like my girlfriend then turning down the temperature gauge of your shower from “not fit for human” scalding to warm will also help.
    Try to loosen the dead cells from your scalp prior to shampooing using a soft (preferably boar) bristle brush. Something like this is ideal.
    You can always try to moisturize your scalp. There are a few treatments and approaches to this. Shea butter is one such approach and can be applied to the scalp and has been used for centuries as a natural moisturizer and medicine. Use the unrefined Shea Butter for maximum effect. However, if you have seb derm I would avoid this completely – it is high in oleic acid which can trigger a seb derm outbreak.
    Some people also find an oily diet helps. Try eating oily fish, walnuts and flax for omega-3s and liver, yeast, fortified grains and eggs for vitamin B7.
    Finally, the choice of shampoo is absolutely key. Using a regular anti-dandruff shampoo to treat a dry scalp isn’t a good idea. Anti-dandruff shampoos are typically designed to control fungus on your scalp or inhibit the rate your skin regenerates. If you have dandruff from a dry scalp these medicated shampoos will do no good at all.
    Instead, you should start with a very gentle shampoo. The shampoo should not containharsh chemicals which either dry your scalp or cause contact dermatitis. This is a where most people go wrong. Most people aren’t aware what goes in their shampoos or what effect these chemicals can have on our scalps.
    We monitor all our shampoos for over 90 harsh chemicals commonly found in shampoos. Ideally, the shampoo should be specifically designed to moisturize your scalp. This will, in turn, relieve the itching and tightness in your head.
    Luckily there are a number of great products on the market these days
