Even if you do not have one of these conditions, you may still have dandruff. Dry itchy scalp and dandruff can be exacerbated by everyday irritants and causes. Stress can worsen dry scalp, and poor diet may even intensify dandruff. Dry winter weather outside combined with dry heated air inside can make dry scalp itchier and flakier.

To soothe dandruff and wash away flakes, shampoo hair and scalp regularly with a gentle shampoo. You may be hearing that you should shampoo less often to protect hair and scalp. But in fact, if the shampoo is soothing and includes ingredients of natural origins, it is good to use it regularly. Shampooing regularly helps clean flakes and sebum from the scalp, clarifying the skin to create the ideal scalp environment for hair growth. Plus, a scalp massage while you shampoo helps improve circulation to the scalp. A clean and invigorated scalp is less prone to irritation and dandruff.

Curing dandruff for hair loss prevention can be as easy as knowing what causes dandruff, talking to your doctor, and maintaining a clean and healthy scalp. For added relief and to soothe itchy scalp, try a topical serum or elixir with menthol for a tingling, invigorated scalp.
