Did you know ?
Itching of the scalp can be attributed to a host of causes, including nervousness, stress, dry skin, etc. In some cases, it can even result from a disruption in the flora, or micro-organisms, that naturally reside on the body. Normally, the scalp provides a natural home for them, a sort of “local ecosystem.” When one of these micro-organisms develops more quickly and becomes predominant, the ecosystem is thrown out of kilter and itching can result. In addition, certain factors (humidity, overuse of gels, dietary imbalance, and more) can allow the proliferation of pityrosporum ovale, a type of fungus that irritates the scalp, causes itching, and can result in the formation of dandruff.
What to do on a daily basis:
To maintain the scalp’s ecological balance, it’s essential to avoid overly harsh haircare treatments. Choose gentle shampoos, don’t keep wet hair under a towel or hat for too long, and use hair products only on the strands-not the scalp. With kind and gentle care, your scalp’s natural balance will be restored. If itching continues, however, ask your dermatologist to determine the cause.
