A sensitive scalp leads to numerous hair problems, not least an increased chance of dandruff. Heat styling can make things worse, while certain up-dos can add even more discomfort. Just as skin can be sensitive and reactive to ingredients, scalps are also prone to sensitivity. Knowing whether your scalp is sensitive, understanding why it may be sensitive and using products that soothe the irritation will all go a long way in bringing much-needed relief.
Simple Ways to Soothe Sensitive Scalps
Here’s what you need to know about soothing sensitive scalps simple and effectively.
Know the symptoms
The first thing to do is know the symptoms. Although there is some overlap, sensitive and dry scalps are not quite the same things. If you have any itching, irritation, burning, prickling, tingling, blisters or flaky patches, you likely have a sensitive scalp. If your hair often feels like it’s being pulled when it’s in a ponytail, this could also be a sign.
Understand the cause
There are many things that contribute towards scalp problems. In some cases, it could be something easy to treat, such as dandruff. It could be a reaction to harsh ingredients in shampoo, conditioner or any hair treatments you have been using. It could be sunburn. It could be caused by scalp psoriasis, stress or other conditions.
