Managing your dry scalp this winter

Why is my scalp so dry this winter?

As the air becomes dry during the winter months many people experience dryness and flakiness on their scalps. This can be uncomfortable, itchy and even embarrassing for some.

There are several reasons why your scalp could be dry, including:

  • Environmental factors include frequent exposure to hot or cold temperatures, dry indoor air, or harsh chemicals in hair products can strip your scalp of its natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation. 
  • Genetics may also play a role, as some people naturally produce less oil on their scalp.
  • Lifestyle habits such as a poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption or stress can contribute to dryness and flakiness.

The importance of using the right hair products

Using a shampoo and conditioner that suits the current state of your scalp is essential!

A dry scalp means that you will need to be using a moisturising shampoo and conditioner that helps to restore the natural oils and moisture in your scalp as well as add moisture. Using the wrong products can lead to issues such as dryness, breakage and scalp irritation.

For example:

  • Using a shampoo that is too harsh for your hair type can strip your hair of its natural oils, leading to dry and brittle hair. 
  • Using a heavy conditioner on fine or oily hair can weigh it down and make it look greasy.

By choosing the right products you can help prevent issues such as dandruff, breakage and hair loss!
