Understanding the Causes of Scalp Itch and Irritation

While this irritation is linked to many conditions, finding the source can reveal a solution for you. Cold winter weather is notorious for its moisture-zapping air, which can throw your scalp health out of balance. If your scalp is too dry or too oily, this can cause all sorts of irritation and buildup that will make you itch.

An itchy scalp can be the result of stress, seasonal changes, fluctuating hormones, or an overgrowth of yeast on the skin which leads to dandruff. If you are seeing large white or yellow flakes on an oily scalp, you could have seborrheic dermatitis

How do I fix the itch? Using the Best Shampoo for Itchy Scalp

If you’re experiencing seborrheic dermatitis, try a medicated shampoo 2-3 times a week with an active ingredient like salicylic acid, ketoconazole, zinc pyrithione, or selenium sulfide to kill any harmful scalp bacteria.

Incorporating Apple Cider Vinegar into Your Itchy Scalp Treatment

Otherwise, try WOW’s Apple Cider Vinegar shampoo to soothe your itchy scalp by deep cleaning your hair follicles and balancing your scalp’s pH. The hero ingredient raw Apple Cider Vinegar contains antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and scalp soothing properties that prevent bacteria from forming and help to remedy scalp irritation and itchy, flaky scalp.

If your itch symptoms don’t dissipate easily or within a few weeks after adding WOW ACV Shampoo to your hair care routine, talk to your doctor about the underlying cause of your itchy scalp and how best to treat it. Especially if your symptoms include pain, sores, swelling or intense itching that interferes with your sleep pattern for more than a week.

Essential oils anyone?
