You might be in denial over this scalp struggle, viewing it as a source of shame, but listen up: it’s time to accept your dandruff with open arms. It’s perfectly normal, and by acknowledging it, you can address it. This skin problem is caused by an overgrowth of Malassezia yeast, which all scalps are home to - but when production gets out of hand, this is when those lil’ white flakes can begin to form. If this is your itchy scalp cause then we have good news, as there’s a whole arsenal of products to get that scalp back in to tip-top shape. Try out Kérastase’s Specifique Anti-pelliculaire range to fight the flakes.

On the contrary, dry skin can feel tight and annoyingly itchy. If your scalp is dry AF, then this is the symptom lineup you can expect. First, try out a nourishing deep conditioning treatment and/or scalp treatment But if these don’t seem to be doing the trick, it’s best to seek help from your doctor, as it could be an issue in need of medical attention.
