What Causes a Sensitive Scalp? Expert Shares the Causes and Remedies
22 October 2018
We all want full, healthy hair but we often neglect the root of the problem – the scalp. Be in the know about what can cause scalp sensitivity and you can help put a stop to your hair concerns.
We sat with Bill Underwood at Charles Worthington, Biolage Expert to find out more. Read on to find out how to prevent a sensitive scalp with our pro Q&A.
Q: What Can Cause A Sensitive Scalp?
A: Everything from over-shampooing the hair and stripping away necessary oils, to poor product choice, to cold temperatures are considered sensitive scalp causes. Itchiness, dandruff, thinning hair, and oily roots are all key indicators that your scalp is in need of some TLC. So if you’ve been buying products specifically formulated for the lengths of your hair and wondering why you haven’t seen any improvement, it’s time to rethink your approach.
“Sensitive scalps can be caused by infections of the hair follicle, pollution and products that disagree with your scalp.”
Q: How Do I Treat A Sensitive Scalp?
A: Restoring the balance at your roots is key for a healthy scalp that doesn’t suffer with sensitivity. Bill recommends “Biolage RAW Rebalance shampoo and conditioner, which have both been specifically designed for those who are prone to dandruff and a sensitive scalp. The range gently cleanses and nourishes and contains natural ingredients.”
Q: What Can I Request In The Salon To Help A Sensitive Scalp?
Scalp sensitivity can manifest as a host of different symptoms and side-effects – and your stylist can help you identify them. They can leverage their professional expertise and assess your scalp and your lengths to determine the best treatment plan. For those struggling with oily roots, the Kérastase Spécifique Masquargil. Formulated with kaolin and moringa, this sensitive scalp treatment thoroughly dissolves dirt and impurities and eliminates dullness and greasiness so your scalp is revitalised for healthy hair growth.
Q: I Have A Dry, Itchy Scalp. Is There An At-Home Treatment I Can Try?
For women struggling with the opposite problem - a dry, itchy scalp, we asked Bill what he recommends “I would suggest using Biolage RAW Nourish range; the gentle and nourishing formulas of the shampoo, conditioner and mask contain natural ingredients such as Quinoa husk, honey, coconut oil, argan oil and shea butter work in unison to moisturise and soothing the scalp, leaving hair silky smooth to the touch.”
