The most common cause of itchy scalp is not washing your hair often enough. Many conditions can cause your scalp to be itchy so check out all our other definitions in our medical conditions of the hair and scalp.

One of the other causes of itchy scalp is the product you use to shampoo and style your hair. If you are having a reaction to the product it will generally occur within one hour of use. You should discontinue using this product and try another.

Shampoo used or applied incorrectly can build up on the scalp to cause itching. Poor quality gels and sprays can also coat the scalp leading to itchiness. Try a shampoo specifically designed to remove product buildup.

Having your hair pulled back or under a hat/cap all day can also lead to an itchy scalp. Try also buying a soothin product.
