How to soothe an irritated scalp
03 October 2018
An irritated scalp is a common and persistent problem for all hair types. The root causes could stem from bad hair habits or genetic skin problems that affect the scalp. Whatever your issue, here’s what you can do about it.
Your scalp may be experiencing product build-up, with clogged pores and germs, causing the irritation. An effective cleansing routine using Matrix Biolage ScalpSync Anti-Dandruff Shampoo will help control the dandruff and excessive shedding leaving you with an itch-free scalp.
An irritated scalp can be a sign of dryness and dehydrated hair, stemming from either environmental, or personal factors. If you have naturally dry hair and trouble retaining water, moisturising with essential oils that nourish and rehydrate the scalp will help. These oils include olive, almond and peppermint oil.
Neglecting to give your hair the proper care, maintenance and treatment is surprisingly a common problem too. Adopting a healthy hair routine such as brushing twice daily, and regular cleansing is the long term solution to preventing an itchy scalp. Also, if irritation persists, go easy on wearing tight weaves or braids as they can further cause scalp stress through tension and lack of air to the hair roots.
The ingredients in your kitchen cupboard can also work if you’re ever without any products. Mix apple cider vinegar and olive oil in a bowl and apply to your roots and scalp to calm and cool the burning sensation that comes with an itchy scalp. If a home remedy doesn’t cut it, use Mizani Scalp Care Soothing Serum for instant relief.
Take your moisturising a step further by including a scalp massage using essential oils. Scalp massages are famous for increasing blood circulation to the scalp to get rid of dandruff and improve the growth of new hair cells.
A final tip is to examine what products you use in your hair to make sure the ingredients aren’t the cause of your irritated scalp. Visit your nearest salon stylist for a full hair diagnosis to be safe.
