Flaky Dry Scalp

Itchy Scalp | Flaky scalp | Odylique Hair Care

Flaky Dry Scalp

A flaky dry scalp is often the result of damage to the scalp by chemical irritants. Harsh shampoo for example can damage the scalp’s protective moisture and oil barrier and this allows other irritants to absorb more easily and causes the scalp to become dry and/or flaky. In some cases the scalp might become more oily than dry, but the root cause is often the same.

Scalp sensitivity is actually quite common, affecting around 40% of the population. So if you find yourself in this group, you're definitely not alone.

How to treat a dry flaky scalp

If your scalp is prone to being dry, flaky and/or overly oily, try avoiding hair care and shampoos that use sulphates, artificial fragrance and strong preservatives. Instead look for a pH balanced shampoo, because this avoids upsetting the scalp’s precious acid mantle. 

Also look for key ingredients in your shampoo and hair care that aid scalp recovery like Coconut Oil, Chamomile and Aloe Vera.

Odylique organic natural shampoos are ideal for a dry and/or flaky scalp, because they are pH balanced, don't contain harsh chemicals and do contain these key ingredients that soothe and moisturise the hair and scalp.

Other causes of a flaky itchy scalp

A flaky itchy scalp can also be the result of a fungal infection, which is a common cause of dandruff. A wonderful organic natural treatment is our tea tree shampooTea tree oil has natural antifungal and antibacterial properties and coupled with Aloe Vera and Coconut Oil is great to promote a healthy scalp.

The following Odylique natural organic shampoos are free from SLS and all sulphates, are balanced to pH 5.5 and are 100% natural.
