How To Treat A Dry Scalp
October 21, 2022
Let’s be honest: There’s nothing worse than dealing with a dry scalp. The dry feeling can cause itchiness, dandruff, and discomfort. If left untreated, it can be an ongoing distraction in your day and take away from your favorite hairstyles.
Dry scalps tend to happen during the colder months of the year. As we say goodbye to the summer heat and hello to fall and winter: It’s never been more important to start prioritizing your scalp health.
Before you let a dry scalp get in the way of your confidence, we're here to help.
Here's everything you need to know:
Dry scalp vs. dandruff
A dry scalp happens when your scalp isn't getting enough moisture. This can be caused by your hair care products, the weather, or a nutrient deficiency. A dry scalp can cause dandruff. However, dandruff can be caused by something more serious, like a fungal infection or allergic reaction.
If you notice an excessive amount of dandruff in your hair, you may want to consult with a professional about your treatment options.
If you believe you have a dry scalp, here are a few ways you can combat the discomfort:
Take a look at your shampoo ingredients
We have some bad news for you: The reason you’re experiencing a dry scalp may be because of your go-to shampoo. If your shampoo contains harsh chemicals, it could irritate the scalp and cause itchiness, dryness, and flakiness.
You’ll want to look for a hydrating and moisturizing shampoo with nourishing ingredients that can add moisture back to your scalp. If you're scalp and hair strands are in dire need of a hydration boost, try our Argan Oil Shampoo. This shampoo contains Moroccan Argan Oil and Soy Protein. Both ingredients work together to moisturize your scalp, provide impeccable shine and improve the manageability of your hair.
Don’t overdo it with the styling products
We know how tempting it can be to use hairspray, dry shampoo, and other products. However, if you're using these products daily to achieve your favorite hairstyles, your scalp may suffer from product build up. Product build up can start to irritate the scalp, especially when it’s left untreated. This happens when you use too many styling products every day. Over time, your scalp will start to feel irritated and itchy.
If you think you’re experiencing product build-up, try our Hair Purifier purifying mask. It's a vinegar cleansing mask designed to gently cleanse the scalp and add essential moisture. Our hair purifier contains an Exclusive Prisma Plus Enhancing Complex that will also help boost shine and make your natural hair color appear more vibrant.
Try a scalp massager
A scalp massage is a great way to stimulate your scalp and combat itchiness. This massaging tool helps increase blood flow and eliminate product build-up. When done correctly, they help exfoliate the skin on your scalp and remove the dead skin cells.
If you’re experiencing signs of a dry scalp, consider making a scalp massage part of your everyday routine. You can easily massage your scalp while you're in the shower after or before your shampoo and conditioner.
Sometimes, all your hair needs are some extra TLC! When you prioritize self-care, you can regulate your stress levels and combat the chaos in your life. Always make time for yourself by taking time to go on a walk, try some yoga, or throw on a face or hair mask.
Our Time Capsule hair mask is the perfect product for all those self-care nights at home. The formula is a blend of natural oils designed to provide the vital nutrients your scalp and hair follicles need to shine and feel their absolute best. Incorporating a hair mask and some much-needed 'you time' into your weekly routine is a great way to destress, relax, and take care of yourself.
Add more vitamins into your diet
Did you know your diet can impact your hair health? If you aren’t getting enough vitamins and nutrients in your diet, it could impact your hair's health and visual appeal. Make sure you’re getting enough B6 and B12 vitamins in your diet. You can get these vitamins from whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.
