Over time, some people experience what we can call being dry scalp. There are lots of causes, and solutions, to the dry scalp problem. You can find most solutions at an online beauty supply.
Some people can over wash and over brush their hair thus over time, irritation occurs on the scalp and and dry out the natural oils keeping your hair and scalp soft and moisturized. In that case, dry scalp happens when the scalp is not being lubricated by the sebaceous gland.
Thus the solution to wash the hair thinking it will 'wet' the hair will not remove the dry scalp problem ! It might even worsen it !
The natural moisture can be put away by water, harsh shampoos and conditioners.
Many people also experiences the dry scalp problem during the winter or when working at the office with air conditioners. Those in a dry climate needs to pay more attention too. Of course, the hair is producing natural oil though under some circumstances, those external factors cancel the natural oil contribution.
Others causes of the dry scalp problem can involve a deficiency in fatty acids. Dehydration can leads to dry scalp problem as well as taking too much caffeine. As well, the use of an air dryer, air conditioner, gels or spray containing alcohol are also the common causes for dry scalp.
The first solution to dry scalp problem would be to identify the right cause. After that, it would be to avoid some causes as mentioned before.
The next logical step would be to look for a shampoo and conditioner designed specifically to threat dry scalp. You can check the dry hair formula of your usual shampoo or check for a shampoo with 'Dry Hair' label on it. Almost all brands offer such a version of their regular shampoo. The same is true for the conditioner. Your online beauty supply does offer you such products.
Some ingredients, like zinc pyrithione and coal-tar, are good ones to look after, when seeking a treatment against dry scalp. Look for them when buying from your online beauty supply.
Of course, asking a cosmetologist or even your hairdresser can guide you choosing the right products. Your hairdresser might sell some salon-grade shampoo and conditioner that will give you good results fighting dry scalp. Check your online beauty supply too !
Reducing hairspray, mousse, hair gels and styling creams can help you reduce your dry scalp problem. Here again some moisturizing products can help you greatly. Try to find natural alternatives to products with lots of chemicals, the latest one being potentially bad for your dry scalp problem. Those products are available at your online beauty supply store.
Avoid any high heat treatments like blow-drying, styling with curling, flat irons and others treatment where you are heating your hair: all of them can contribute to your dry scalp problem.
Under most conditions like rain, sunny day, dry air, windy weather, you should cover your head. All those conditions can damage your hair and increase your dry scalp problem. The same way you are covering your body under such weather, the same way you should protect your hair. Sunscreen protectors should also be used on your exposed scalp and under hard weather, feel free to moisturize your scalp before going out and after.
