4 Things the Best Dry Scalp Treatment Should Do


Choosing the best dry scalp treatment for you is easy. In fact, there are just 4 things to look out for

1. Tackle dandruff yes, really!

Okay, so your first thought is probably that you need to moisturize (see point 2) but really, you need to start with the underlying cause. In many cases, thats dandruff.

Dandruff damages the scalp. It causes changes in your outer skin cell (and were not talking healthy ones!), disrupting the skins natural moisture defenses and allowing moisture to escape.

So it follows that if you treat dandruff, youll be treating the root cause of the problem so your body can focus on healing the damage.

Without it, your dry scalp problem may keep coming back.

2. Moisturize your scalp

Now for the moisturizer. If youre tackling the root cause with an anti-dandruff shampoo you can get immediate relief from the dryness by choosing one with added moisturisers.

It means you can give your scalp the extra moisture it needs while your anti-dandruff shampoo gets to work tackling the root cause.

3. Clean all the dirt, dust and grime

Its still a shampoo, so it needs to do what all good shampoos do keep your hair and scalp clean.

4. Smooth and condition your hair

For great-looking hair, its important to condition too, so look out for a dry scalp shampoo that delivers.

And if you prefer a separate conditioner, theres always our Dry Scalp Care Conditioner that works hand in hand with the shampoo to lock in its dandruff-fighting action so you continue to tackle the root cause.
