Is your scalp feeling dry and tight? We know how it irritating an itchy and dry scalp can be. But did you know if your scalp is feeling dry, it could be dandruff – even if you don’t see flakes. Dandruff can cause your skin’s natural moisture barrier to become ‘leaky’ and dry out your scalp. Choosing the best dry scalp shampoo for you is easy. In fact, there are just 4 things to look out for…
1. Tackle dandruff – yes, really!
Okay, so your first thought is probably that you need to moisturize (see point 2) but really, you need to start with the underlying cause. In many cases, that’s dandruff.
Dandruff damages the scalp. It causes changes in your outer skin cell (and we’re not talking healthy ones!), disrupting the skin’s natural moisture defenses and allowing moisture to escape.
So it follows that if you treat dandruff, you’ll be treating the root cause of the problem so your body can focus on healing the damage.
Without it, your dry scalp problem may keep coming back.
2. Moisturise your scalp
Now for the moisturizer. If you’re tackling the root cause with an anti-dandruff shampoo you can get immediate relief from the dryness by choosing a shampoo like Head & Shoulders 2-in-1 with added moisturisers.
It means you can give your scalp the extra moisture it needs while your anti-dandruff shampoo gets to work tackling the root cause.
3. Wash off the dirt
It’s still a shampoo, so it needs to do what all good shampoos do – keep your hair and scalp clean.
4. Smoothen and condition your hair
For great-looking hair it’s important to condition too, so look out for a dry scalp shampoo that delivers it.
