Sensitive scalps need to special care. In this section we look at the causes of sensitive scalps and how you can help relieve the symptoms.
Scalps have to contend with all sorts of aggressive elements on a daily basis. From hair dryers to pollution, your scalp is exposed to a lot more than you might imagine. This can result in an acute level of sensitivity which can lead to irritation and even pain.

There are multiple causes of sensitive scalps.
- An unbalanced diet
- Exposure to heat from frequent styling and blow drying

Sometimes itchiness, red patches and flaky skin will be signs of skin disorders such as eczema or psoriasis which you would need to speak to your G.P. about.
