How to Keep Your Scalp Healthy for Longer and Stronger Hair

Our scalps can be prone to a variety of conditions, including dandruff and eczema. The most common complaint, however, is scalp drynessIyou’re struggling with dry skin on scalp, keep reading. We explain what causes dry scalp and introduce you to the best dry scalp treatments. 

What Causes a Dry Scalp?

A dry, itchy scalp can be caused by main factors: 

1. Excessive Hair Washing

It’s important to know that washing hair too often can strip away the natural oils that keep the scalp moisturised, resulting in an itchy scalp and dry, brittle hair. 

Depending on your hair type, 1 or 2 washes a week should be sufficient to keep hair clean without stripping its natural oils.  

2. Weather Changes 

Just as the colder weather can dry out the skin, it can dry out the scalp too. Likewise, intense heat can reduce the scalp’s hydration levels, leaving it feeling dry and itchy. 

Watermans Tip: To keep the scalp moist and avoid stripping away the all-important natural oils, shower with warm water, not hot. 

3. Allergic Reaction to Products 

If you experience dry skin on scalp or itching after using a new dye or hair product, this could be the result of an allergic reaction.  

Stop using the irritating product and the scalp dryness, redness and flaking should clear up within a few weeks. If it doesn’t, get in touch with your GP. 

How to Maintain a Hydrated Scalp and Healthy-Looking Hair 

Revamping your hair care routine is a great place to start when searching for the best dry scalp treatment. First, take time to assess your current hair wash routine. Less frequent hair washes could reduce scalp dryness and help hair feel more hydrated. Next, choose your hair care products wisely, as they play a huge part in maintaining healthy hair and scalp.
