Eliminate dry, flaky scalp problems with these simple tips.

Itchy scalp

If you suffer from an itchy, flaky scalp, washing your hair too little can make the problem worse. Use a sulfate-free shampoo and try washing your hair at least every other day.

Flakes that are left in place also provide a haven to yeasts and bacteria, trapping sebum, hair products, and dust or dirt on your scalp. This is the perfect recipe for a full-blown breakout of dermatitis.

The solution is simple. Just wash the flakes away and rinse thoroughly to keep your scalp happy and itch-free.


So True...I use a sulfate free shampoo which is by shea moisture the organic african black soap deep cleansing shampoo for dry, itchy scalp I shampoo with it twice a week now but when I first start using it I shampooed 3 times a week for 2 1/2 weeks it didnt dry out my hair at all I love that shampoo but I added some more african black soap to it (purchased from Coastal scents).. It works wonders for my scalp and hair :) ..

that's too much shampooing for my hair. fellow curlies suggested i add a little tea tree oil to my cowash and that's much better.
