The question that I’ve been asked most often is, “How do I treat dry scalp?” What is your first reaction when I tell you that it isn’t that hard? Yes, there are a lot of products out there for treating the problem, but how do you know which ones will work and which ones are just hype?
Scalp problems don’t have to be that bad. With a little dedication and some research, you can find a product that will help you get rid of dry scalp forever!
The first thing you should be aware of is that scalp problems are a mild condition that can sometimes be easily managed by shampoo. When shampooing your hair, make sure you give your scalp some time to adjust before you actually wash the hair.
After shampooing the hair, it’s important to put on a leave-in conditioner that will soak in the hair while you are drying it. Also, use an oil-based shampoo to rinse your hair after the conditioner. This will keep the scalp from drying out as quickly.
In terms of shampooing, the type of shampoo you use can actually cause more harm than good to your scalp. Shampoo is usually harsh on the scalp and can cause more problems than it will solve.
Remember, it’s better to shampoo with a mild shampoo and conditioner rather than a more harsh brand. You’ll need to apply heat on your scalp, which will soften the hair. Heat it with a towel or hair dryer while you’re doing it.
It’s best to wait until your scalp has softened before you actually wash your hair. Start by washing your hair and gently patting it down to loosen the hair.
Once your scalp is at its softest, you can then get started on washing. This will help your scalp absorb the moisture from the heat that you applied. It also helps prevent dandruff and clogged pores.
