Scalp Treatment is usually associated with itching and irritation. This could be due to scalp inflammation, hormonal imbalance or bacterial/ fungal infection. Some people even experience painful sensation at the hair roots.
Research findings have shown that 34% of people in the world have Sensitive Scalp. It is normally stimulated by climate or environmental change. Too cold, too hot, too dry and excessive ultraviolet radiation will lead to vulnerable Sensitive Scalp.
Sensitive Scalp could be developed by an imbalance in the sebum secretion process, which leads to irritation. The following elements can cause an acute level of sensitivity among individuals as well:
- Unsuitable hair products
- An imbalanced diet
- Frequent use of styling products
- Chlorinated water from swimming pool
- Wearing caps, hats or helmets for a long period of time
Itchiness, red patches and flaky skin may be signs of scalp disorders, such as eczema or psoriasis. If this is the case, it has to be treated.
