Reasons for itchy scalp and solution

 Written by Rosalyn O


Dandruff, a scalp condition that can cause itching and flaking of the skin, is treated with medicated shampoos. Dandruff  is caused by overgrowth of yeast like fungus known as malassezia on the scalp. Malessezia also lives on healthy scalps without causing dandruff but when the fungus grows out of control dandruff can become a huge problem. It is characterized by large greasy or waxy flakes or clusters of skin cells and are usually yellowish or greasy.

You have product buildup

Product builds up on our scalp and hair follicles over time from all of the various moisturizers, stylers and tap water we use on our hair. Over time debris and dirt gets trapped in the pores of the scalp, clogging them and causing that all too familiar itchy feeling. To really remove build up on the scalp, try using AFRORIRI HONEY MOISTURISING SHAMPOO.

Dry Scalp

Dry scalp is caused by dehydration and over-shedding of the scalp, and is accompanied with small tiny flakes. You know you have a dry scalp when you feel tightness of the scalp and itchiness.

How to treat dry scalp

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Wash less
  • Rub AFRORIRI HAIR BUTTER on scalp daily even when your hair is in a protective style

Hope this was helpful. xoxo
