What Causes Dry Scalp

Dry hair can be caused from lack of moisture in your scalp. It can be also be due to low sebum (oil) production or even aging, stress, over washing your hair and using the wrong shampoo. Even living in a dry climate can make your scalp dry especially if you are not hydrating your body internally by consuming adequate amount of water.

How To Moisturize Your Scalp

A lot of people pay more emphasis on moisturizing hair than scalp. If you have dry scalp, you could also have a scalp condition known as scalp psoriasis. This consists of plaques or scales that can cause white flaking and look like dandruff. However, if you have oily scalp, you might have a condition known as seborrheic dermatitis. This leaves oily, waxy patches on your scalp.  Also another reason why you should moisturize your scalp is to avoid dandruff.

What to Use to Moisturize Your Scalp

Scalp Oils

Scalp Oils will help to moisturize your scalp. Start by spraying a liquid like water, aloe vera juice, or even rose water or green tea and then use your scalp oil.

Scalp Grease 

There are some scalp hair grease that not only keeps the scalp moisturize but also nourish it. It is best to use natural hair grease that is free of artificial ingredients such as petroleum. Always start off with spraying a little liquid on your scalp to hydrate it and then lock in the moisturize with the natural hair grease.
