    All Your Scalp Problem Questions Answered

    The first thing to know about scalp problems is that you can’t problem deal with them until you know what is causing them in the first place. If you’re a bit shy about asking your hairstylist about any scalp-related concerns, these questions and answers should help provide some clarity. 

    What are the most common problems?

    While it might be one of the most common issues, dandruff is only one problem. Even then, there are several things that cause dandruff. In some cases, it can be caused by fungal or bacterial infections. In most cases, it is caused by a dry scalp. Other issues includescalp sensitivity, which often goes hand-in-hand with dry scalps. Oily scalps result in oily roots and oily hair. Hair loss that happens at the root is also associated with scalp concerns. Itchiness can happen with all types of scalp concerns. 

    Are they permanent or fixable?

    The good news is that you can deal with all of these issues. Understanding the cause of your sensitive, oily or dry scalp is the first step in dealing with the problem. Don’t be shy to ask your hairstylist for advice. They are always happy to check your scalp to give you advice on what is happening. This will make it easier to know how to proceed with treatment.

    What is the best treatment for these issues?

    As far as treatment goes, it is always best to use quality products containing active ingredients that gently cleanse, detox and nourish your scalp. Commercial anti-dandruff products are usually loaded with harsh chemicals that can lead to a dry, tender scalp. Needless to say, this makes the problem even worse. One of the best product collections for all scalp concerns is theKérastase Specifique range. This range has a selection of shampoos, conditioners, serums, masques, and other treatments designed specifically to soothe, nourish and keep your scalp healthy.
