Like the rest of our skin, the scalp is also made up of several layers:
In the lower layers, new cells are formed while on the surface, old cells are constantly being shed.
Specific triggers can upset this system however – then you’ll find you experience itching, dryness, feelings of tautness and a build-up of dandruff. Other influences such as too much sun or salty or chlorinated water remove moisture from the scalp and allow dandruff to form.
An unbalanced diet, a lot of stress and taking too many showers can also dry out the scalp.
Having a dry scalp can also be hereditary. When the itching becomes unbearable however, you must visit a doctor – the cause could be fungal or an infestation of lice or mites. But do not worry. These situations can now be treated quickly and simply.
