A flaky and itchy scalp is definitely something I (and maybe you) want to avoid at all costs. It’s important to treat it, though, because scalp health is so important. If it’s dry, itchy, oily, or has excess buildup, it’s going to mess with your hair growth and health. Not to mention that when your scalp is happy, healthy, and hydrated, you’ll see a lot less annoying dandruff or dead skin flakes.
There are a couple of things to do to keep your scalp in good shape: If it’s dry, you’ll want to shampoo less because overdoing it can strip your scalp of its natural oils. You can try different treatments like oils and scrubs and massage it in to take care of the skin up there. Sometimes you might even need to see a dermatologist if it’s excessively dry and doesn’t improve after trying out different treatments and methods.
