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.
