Dry scalp is a really common problem, but what exactly is it and how can you treat it?
Damage to the outer layer of skin cells on the scalp is normally the cause of dry scalp, as this lets essential moisture escape easily. And what can damage your scalp’s moisture defences? Usually, it’s dandruff irritating the skin.
Dandruff is a key cause of dry scalp – it disrupts the moisture barrier, making it hard for the cells to retain moisture, leading to adry, tight and often itchy feeling.
There are plenty of other factors that can make a dry scalp worse too, from heat styling to hot showers.
Dry scalp1 can be very uncomfortable, but you can easily manage it.
