Dehydration? Harsh chemicals? Anything from ambient conditions to what’s on your dinner plate can cause dry, itchy scalp. At Frederick Benjamin, our all-natural products get to the root of the issue and effectively moisturize both the hair and scalp so you can feel the difference. Here are some of the top causes of dry, itchy scalp and ways that we can relieve it:
1. Invest in better suds
Drying alcohols are prevalent in inexpensive shampoos. Alcohols are good for cleansing but they are also harsh, stripping the natural moisture out of the scalp. Look for an all-natural solution that still gives a deep clean.
2. Smell Test on Sight
Synthetic fragrances and colorants are common in hair maintenance and styling products. With over 4,000 different components used to make these ingredients, there is a high chance of an allergic reaction. Protect your scalp!
3. Leave the bar
Though it can be tempting when you’re in a hurry, using bar soap will dry out your hair and scalp since it’s not formulated to retain and replenish moisture.
4. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Not applying a daily moisturizer can lead to dry, itchy scalp just as avoiding body lotion can do the same to your skin. A hair moisturizer is the key to softer, more manageable hair.
