How to Treat a Dry Scalp

Ugh, itchy and dry scalp - been there done that! Yeah, almost half of Aussies have to deal with the same annoying issue. But hey, on the bright side, the popularity of scalp care has grown a lot in recent years, so treating your dry scalp is easier than ever!

Looking to get some help with managing dandruff or product buildup? We've got you covered. From scalp care tips to solutions, we're here to guide you along your journey. Let's get started!

Dry scalp can be caused by a few things. It could just be due to already having naturally dry skin, so if you're going through weather or seasonal changes that tend to dry out your skin, it will likely cause your scalp to be dry too. Another common cause is dandruff which can be caused by an overgrowth of a yeast on the scalp called Malassezia.

Are you experiencing an itchy, red, or flaky scalp? It could also be caused by a buildup of products on your scalp that might be causing an allergic reaction. Even with products like shampoo and conditioner that you rinse off, can leave behind residue for hours that can cause irritant contact dermatitis. So be aware of the ingredients in your products - they could be the cause!

It's quite common for people with psoriasis to experience scalp itching due to scalp psoriasis that causes skin cells grow really fast and form patches of dry, itchy, flaky skin. It's also possible that your grooming habits are causing some of the discomfort. Are you using the right shampoo, conditioner, or maybe you're over- or under-washing your scalp?

If you are dealing with a dry scalp. We suggest making a few changes to your routine and products. You will want to get rid of anything with irritating ingredients like sulfates, parabens, simple alcohols, formaldehyde, and synthetic fragrances. Instead, go for products with nourishing ingredients like Collagen and Panthanol that will infuse moisture back into the scalp and Peppermint Oil to cleanse and refresh your scalp. To help lock in the hydration overnight, try applying a humectant like Panthanol and then seal it in with a lightweight oil like Argan.

It's important to think about scalp care in the same way as skin care. Just like you wouldn't leave a layer of makeup on your skin for three days without washing your face, you don't want to do that with your scalp either because it could result in dryness and breakouts. We recommend mixing up your scalp care routine by using a scalp and hair treatment like HSB Labs Grow and Boost to remove buildup, followed by nourishing and moisturising the scalp to a healthier fresher feel.
