Have Dull, Lifeless Hair? The Root of Your Problem May be a Dry Scalp

It is common for your scalp to dry out during the colder months which can lead to itchy, red, or irritated skin, dandruff, and dry, dull hair. The root of the problem can be a number of things besides weather like shampooing your hair too frequently, dietary deficiencies, and overusing hair products that contain alcohol. Luckily, there are several options to try to remedy your uncomfortable dry scalp, and give your hair its luster and volume back!

Treatment Options for a Dry Scalp:

One easy possible fix is to switch shampoos. If your scalp is dry, you should use a gentle shampoo and wash your hair every other day with warm- not scalding hot- water. Avoid gels, mousses, hairsprays, and other products that contain alcohol and can dry out your scalp. Also, try to limit the use of heat appliances like blow dryers and curling irons. You can also try a dandruff shampoo or treatment that contains zinc pyrithione, ketoconazole, or selenium oxide which can help with flaking and irritation. Another alternative is to use an at-home conditioning treatment with warm oil or a deep conditioner twice a week.

If you have dandruff, stimulate your scalp while shampooing with your fingertips for some relief. There are several dietary deficiencies that can lead to a dry, flaky scalp as well. A dry scalp is often associated with a lack of vitamin B6 and B12 which is obtained by eating fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain breads and cereals. You can also take supplements such as flaxseed oil, zinc, or selenium if changing your diet alone doesn’t do the trick.

It’s also important to stay hydrated and avoid sugary foods, spicy foods, salt, and alcohol and to increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Lastly, if none of these treatment options work, you should make an appointment with your dermatologist. It is possible that your dry scalp could be the result of a medical condition.
