4 Professional Tips to Rid an Itchy Scalp
Contributed by Salon Vim and Kerastase SG
An itchy scalp not only causes discomfort, but it can also be embarrassing and lead to hair loss. Here are 4 professional tips to help treat the issue.
1. USE SPECIFIC PRODUCTS FOR AN ITCHY SCALP
To soothe an itchy scalp, specific products must be used to reduce itchiness. Silicone-free and hypoallergenic products are essential to ensure an effective treatment because they respect the scalp balance.
2. FIND OUT THE CAUSE OF ITCHING
An itchy scalp may be caused by excessive dryness or dandruff. Both issues require different customised solutions based on your scalp type. Self medicating by natural home remedies or changing multiple shampoos may not effectively treat the problem. Undergo a scalp diagnosis with a professional to find out the root of the issue.
3. HAVE A HEALTHY DIET
Almonds, for instance, are an excellent source of Vitamin E and antioxidants, which protect the scalp and therefore allow its natural balance to be restored. Moreover, if you are prone to eczema or psoriasis, dairy products can exacerbate or trigger a scalp condition. Drinking skim milk or soy milk can be a good option.
4. MAKE REGULAR VISITS FOR IN-SALON SCALP TREATMENT
Just like your skin, your scalp and hair requires extra care as they are highly sensitive parts of the body. In fact, your scalp ages faster than your skin and their equilibrium is highly difficult to preserve, however they are often taken for granted. Embarking on a regular customised scalp treatment journey will help to prolong your hair cycle by maintaining an optimal scalp condition.
