Are you scratching your head more than usual? You may be suffering from dandruff and an itchy scalp. Here’s everything you need to know to treat it.
Different factors like diet, climate, stress, and allergies to certain shampoos and conditioners might cause your scalp to suffer and for dandruff and itchiness to appear. There’s no need to suffer in silence. We’re here to help you alleviate this problem as fast as you can.
First things first, here are the most common reasons why you might have an itchy scalp:
The overproduction of skin cells in your scalp can be caused by a yeast infection, climate, diet, or even stress. This will lead to dead skin cells appearing in your head, especially if you’re scratching.
2. Dry scalp
Dandruff is not the only reason why you might have dry skin cells on your scalp. You might have dry skin that causes itchiness. This may be caused by unbalanced skin that has stopped producing or produces less natural sebum.
3. Deficient diet
Limit the quantity of salty and sugary food that you consume and visit your nutritionist for an in-depth analysis of what habits you can change.
