Why do I have a dry, itchy scalp?

A dry, itchy scalp is a common concern for hair types and textures across the board. Not only is this a frustrating condition, it can also be difficult to pinpoint the root of the issue. A few typical reasons for a dry, itchy scalp include:

- Dandruff: A type of dermatitis (seborrheic dermatitis) that is extremely common and develops from the overgrowth of yeast, seasonal changes, stress and hormonal imbalances. It appears in areas like our face and scalp where sebaceous glands become inflamed and produce: Flaking, white or yellow scales, itchiness, and/or reddened skin.
- Contact dermatitis: Inflammation brought on by the introduction of a new product or substance (like a new shampoo or conditioner) on our scalp.
- Scalp psoriasis: A common skin condition that creates inflamed scaly and flaky, red patches. In some instances the patches can extend to the neck and forehead. 
- Allergic reactions 
- Anxiety disorders
