Dry scalp occurs when the skin doesn’t get enough moisture due to cold weather, aging, or a reaction to products applied to the scalp. Symptoms include itching, small and dry flakes, and dry skin on other parts of the body.
Dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin that causes itchy rashes and swollen, reddened skin. When located on the scalp, it presents itself as scaly, oily and itchy inflamed skin. This scalp condition can lead to hair loss or thinning.
Scalp eczema causes red, itchy and irritated skin on the scalp. The most common type of scalp eczema is dermatitis, which is caused by the overproduction of sebum (the natural oils secreted by the sebaceous glands in the scalp).
An itchy, flaky head is a key sign of dandruff. Dandruff can come from both dry and oily scalps, and it’s a result of bacteria, fungus, and deeper scalp conditions. Itch and dandruff can be eliminated if the scalp is treated properly.
Oily Scalp & Hair
The right balance of oil on the scalp prevents dryness and keeps the skin from losing moisture. However, an overly oily scalp can cause outbreaks of dandruff and promote the spread of a fungus that aggravates dandruff symptoms.
Excessive Hair Loss
When the body sheds significantly more than a healthy 80-to-100 hairs daily, a person has excessive hair shedding. Many factors can play into this, including: stress, undergoing surgery with anesthesia, child birth, hair-loss-related scalp conditions, or extreme weight loss.
