Some women battle with a scalp that itches them nonstop.
This condition can be very frustrating and can lead to low energy and fluctuating self-esteem.
But not to worry, KBH got this sneaky reason for your itchy scalp, which you must quickly address in other to cure your itchy scalp.
Sneaky Reasons For Your Itchy Scalp
1. You’re Not Washing Off Those Chemicals Enough
Most times we use relaxers to soften our hair and these chemicals are very harsh and need to be thoroughly washed from our hair.
Failure to do that can cause you a lot of discomforts- from itching to infection.
Residue from your shampoo and conditioner can also cause adverse effects to your hair, from dandruff to sore Scalp.
2. Your Hair Is Not Getting Enough Air
If you are the type who put on heavy wigs, fix dense attachment, or cover your hair in a way that obstructs the free flow of air to your hair, then you should be experiencing itching scalp, reddening, and dandruff.
And if you are a Muslimah, always ensure you keep low-cut hair or easy hairstyles that allow air to freely interact with your hair.
In order to avoid itchy scalp, one should endeavor to wash one’s hair accessories i.e brushes, comb, rollers, parkers, pins on a regular basis as the stickup dirt from previous use can cause your scalp significant irritation.
4. Dirt And Sweat
Accumulation of dirt and excessive sweating on your hair especially when you don’t wash often enough can cause a build-up of germs in the root of the hair which can prompt itching and dandruff.
Some women go on for months without washing their hair.
Me, and a very few others, believe that ugly-looking but clean hair is far more desirable than a smelly, but a pretty-looking style that has been stuck to your hair for weeks or even months without a wash.
Personally, I may not keep a pretty hairstyle but my hair is definitely as clean as my skin.
So endeavor to always keep your hair clean and keep hairstyles that can accommodate water on it if you need to put some ASAP.
