My scalp is a mess- inflamed, flakey, itchy mess; but why?? I never dealt with flakes when I was younger….3 things to pay attention to.
1.) Hair Products- hairspray, dry shampoo, styling products: all of these can build up on your scalp causing irratation.
2.) Water- if you have hard water it can lead to mineral build up on scalp. We purchased a shower water filter from home depot, and it has helped the appearance of pink marks on shower but skin and hair still feel dry. If you buy a/shower filter I suggest going on amazon and reading reviews.
3.)Diet- if you are eating more sugar/ carbs than usual then it might cause inflammation on your scalp.
Paying attention to the three items above can help prevent flakes and inflammation but won’t treat them once they are present. Here is my favorite DIY hair treatment for clarifying my scalp.
Mixed ingredients together, part hair and start applying to scalp, leave on for 15 minutes, wash out.
