Soap, detergent, stress, and changes in the weather can cause dry skin patches to form on your scalp. You may also have dryness on your hands, elbows, face, and on the back of your knees. Avoid harsh shampoos or other products that trigger your symptoms.
Amazing tips to fight against dry scalp and flakes:
Most importantly wash your hair often with normal to cold water and if lots of washes with a regular shampoo aren’t working, try dandruff shampoo.
When using a dandruff shampoo, apply it one your hair and keep it for 10 minutes then use a conditioner after the dandruff shampoo.
Try not to scratch your dry scalp when flakes itch so avoid massaging your scalp when shampoo is applied.
How often you should wash your hair if you have a dry scalp:
A dry scalp can be caused due to frequent use of shampoo. Cleansing too can dry out the scalp, but if you’re under washing your hair it can start to feel sore from the build-up of excess dead skin cells. The solution is to find a balancing shampoo and wash your hair every third or fifth day.
