Dry Scalp and Hair Loss

Itchy, dry scalp is a problem for millions of women and men. Not only is dry, itchy, flaky scalp uncomfortable and embarrassing, but a clean and nourished scalp is the ideal environment for healthy hair growth. So take steps to maintain a healthy, conditioned scalp to promote healthy hair growth.

Causes of itchy dry scalp and dandruff

Dandruff and dry scalp can be caused by ongoing skin problems, such as seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema. These may require a dermatologist consultation and medicated shampoos or topical treatments.

However, even if your dandruff is not due to these conditions, dry itchy scalp can be worsened by more common situations. For instance, everyday stress can impact dry scalp, and some experts suggest a poor diet could worsen dandruff too. Dry hair in winter weather outside, combined with overheated dry air inside, makes dry scalp even itchier and flakier. Although you should not wash your hair too often, be sure to shampoo often enough to clear flakes and sebum (oils) from the scalp. Plus, adding a scalp massage while you shampoo also improves circulation, creating a healthier feeling scalp. A clean and conditioned scalp will be less flaky and will create the ideal environment for healthy hair growth.

At-home treatments for dry hair and scalp

A clean, invigorated scalp is not only less prone to dryness and flakes, but it is also the ideal environment for growing healthier hair. Massage a gentle shampoo and moisturizing conditioner into the scalp and hair to help nourish dry scalp and hair, and to help invigorate the scalp.

Another tip for a healthy scalp is to use a Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir made with clinically tested ingredients from natural sources such as pea sprouts and grape seeds. Look for a hair elixir that also has menthol to invigorate the scalp. As an added bonus, find a hair elixir with creatine to improve the volume and smoothness of hair. Your scalp will not only feel great, but your hair will look fuller and thicker too.
