A sensitive scalp can feel itchy and irritated. This can be caused by a variety of factors such as, an imbalance in the sebum secretion, hormones, stress, illness, diet, harsh shampoos, frequent hair colouring, styling and blow drying, chlorinated pools, UV rays. If you are suffering from redness, scaly patches or flaky skin this may be caused by a disorder such as dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis. If this is the case, it should be diagnosed by either a medical professional, a Dermatologist, or a practitioner such as a Trichologist. Adopting a holistic hair care routine with gentle, safe and effective hair care products will help. The first step is to use a gentle shampoo for a sensitive scalp.
