Itchy Scalp, Does That Mean Growth?? 

Does an itchy scalp equate growth? Absolutely not! If you start to feel that your scalp is itchier than normal, it maybe because of the following: 

Improper Product Selection

Those who use harsh products that contain chemicals like sulfates, detergents, parabens, silicones, mineral oils, lanolin, or petroleum may suffer from scalp irritation, scalp dryness and itchiness. 

Change In Season 

Every season your scalp will face different challenges. Cold weather can pull natural moisture from your scalp and locks. The fall/winter months can be extremely drying on your scalp, making it hard to retain moisture. To combat scalp dryness, make sure to use natural humectants like honey, glycerin, vitamin E, or aloe to soothe and seal in moisture. A humectant is a natural additive that adds moisture and rejuvenates skin and hair, so don’t be shy when adding these ingredients to your favorite leave in conditioners, shampoos, conditioners or deep conditioners. 

Water Intake

Dehydration causes flaky dull scalps, when the production of oil glands slow down your scalp can no longer retain its moisture, so make sure to drink plenty of water.
