Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter from howtoblackhair and in this tutorial I will like to talk about the reasons why you have a dry itchy scalp so if you’re on this earth in your living and breathing and eating and sleeping and operating as a person or as an animal you are going to have issues with dry skin this is something that’s unavoidable because there’s always changes such as if you’re hydrated if you eat well the area you live in so in this tutorial I’m going to explain in 8 reasons as to why you may have issues.
With a try itchy scalp so the first most important reason as to why you may have issues with the dry itchy out is because you don’t have a cleansing or conditioning routine so even though you may keep your hair clean and you may keep your hair conditioned it’s hard to find a way dry scalp if you’re very inconsistent with how often you cleanse the condition your hair you want a routine that your skin is used to that you can use to so it stops yourself from having an itchy dry scalp if you watch her hair too much this will lead to dry scalp.
Or if you’re always putting water on your hair and scalp and then a couple of days you don’t your scalp starts to dry up or feels like it’s lacking so you consistent routine you can be up to adjust whether or not you need shampoo sessions throughout the week or you need to condition your hair a little bit more to get your scalp in perfect condition so the second reason as to why you may have issues with your dry scalp is because you’re not keeping her scalp moisturize is really important especially with AfricanAmerican.
Hair that you keep your hair as moisturized as possible and the same thing goes for your scalp water will be your best friend for moisturizing it is the number one moisturizing product ever to exist that’s where you get moisture so even if you simply have to use a water spray bottle to mist your scalp you want to make sure you seal in the water was type of oil to keep your skin hydrated the third reason as to why you may have issues with an itchy and dry scout because you are dehydrated if you don’t drink enough water for the recommended.
Amount of water a day where is the water coming from to moisturize your scalp what’s very important in your body are your vital organs like the rain your heart and lungs your digestive system so if you’re not taking any water then your organs are absorbing as much as they can and nothing is left for your scalp and even your hair so you notice that oh everything I do nothing works my scalp is always dry and itchy you probably need to drink more water so my 4th reason as to why your scalp may be itchy and dry is because you are using.
Humectants in a dry environment so depending on where you may live the climate may always be dry or you are experiencing a dry part of the season if you use humectants in your hair products during this time your scalp will be dry the purpose of a humectant is to attract as much moisture as you can but the downside about this is that if you’re going through the dry times a year we live in a dry area there is nowhere to extract moisture but from your scalp in your hair so if you use humectants when the air dry.
Or you’re in a dry climate or environment this will make her scalp even drier so save this for more of the rainy seasons or more of cool weather rather than using it when it’s hot out or not as humid when trying to fix your dry and itchy scalp you must keep this in mind so my 5th reason as to why you’re experiencing this is because you have product build up in your hair so depending on how much products you like to use or how heavy of ingredients is this will clog your pores and stop moisture which is water from penetrating.
Your skin in your scalp so if you have product build up this often leads to an itchy scalp and then released to a dry scalp because water cant penetrate through your product enough to give yourself moisture so if you like to use a lot of gels and serums and hair sprays make sure you wash your hair little bit more often to stop yourself from having product build so my 6th reason of why you are experiencing this hair problem is because you have mineral buildup in your water so you got to make sure that from the last tip you don’t have to many.
Products in your hair but in this to you have to be sure that your hair isn’t coated with minerals from your water if you happen to live in a place that has hot water you will notice that your hair will even be unmanageable at times because you can’t get moisture to really penetrate the hair like you need so in the description box below I have a link to my website actually talks about how to more mineral buildup from happening on your hair and the products that you can use to help cleanse your hair because of minerals.
So there’s common minerals that are in our water such as sulfer calcium and even some metals and as these things sit on top of your hair they are able to actually dissolve into your hair will be absorbed by your hair so they sit on top of your hair shaft in order to get the most out of your hair to stop your scalp also from being dry you need to use some type of deep cleansing shampoo to do so now my 7th reason as to why it may be hard.
To control a dry itchy scalp is because you use sulfate shampoo by nature sulfate shampoos are extremely cleansing shampoo that strip off almost everything so even when you shampoo your hair with sulfate shampoo this often leaves yoru hair dryer in your scalp even more dry make sure to use the natural shampoos to wash her hair because you just need to clean your hair you don’t need to strip your hair so by using more natural shampoos that don’t contain sulfate this is your hair in your scalp a good clean without constantly.
Battling dry scalp my favorite natural shampoo that I like to use this to Dr. Bronners Castile Soap or Castile Shampoo in the link below you can also check it out on the post as I talk about the different shampoos that I like to use to avoid an itchy scalp so my last and final reason as to why you may be suffering from a dry and itchy scalp is because you naturally produce low sebum so you’re like okay what does this have to do with scalp my hair what is sebum, sebum is the natural oil that your scalp excretes to keep moisture.
Lot into your scalp and into your hair so by nature naturally AfricanAmerican people produce lower sebum productions than others so that’s why it’s even harder to make sure to keep our hair moisturized what you want to do to help this situation is to use oils that similarly mimic what sebum is which is jojoba oil and even coconut oil so coconut oil happens to be my favorite oil for my hair and my scalp in all I do after wash or a co wash or just after misting my scalp and hair I dip my fingers in my coconut oil and I run.
My fingers across my parts If I have braid or twists and it takes away the dry scalp instantly so if you tried everything on the list sulfate shampoos to making sure that you don’t use humectants in dry climate and all the other reasons you just naturally produce lower sebum so you have to make sure you lock in water with some type oil so those are my reasons as to why you may be experiencing a dry and itchy scalp in this tutorial has been helpful to you make sure to leave any comments you have done in the comments section below.
