You don't actually have to suffer from chronic dry scalp to actually need a little help. Everyone goes through times through the year when their skin goes dry, and their scalp goes even drier. Fortunately, when it comes to seasonal afflictions like this that the weather causes, there isn't a whole lot that you need to do. A regular off-the-shelf product like Head & Shoulders can work great as dry scalp shampoo. If your problem is slightly more stubborn than this all-time favorite can take care of though, a little heavy ammunition is called for, even if all of this is over-the-counter stuff.
For instance, have you ever pressed Selsun Blue Dandruff Shampoo into service as dry scalp shampoo? Actually, Selsun Blue his specific try scalp flavors. They call them Selsun Blue Naturals for Itchy Dry Scalp and just plain Selsun Blue for Itchy Dry Scalp. This is the product that you're looking for.
Neutrogena's products tend to be a bit on the expensive side. But their Triple Moisture Dry Scalp Soothing Shampoo, at $20 for a 9-ounce tube, can be worth every penny. It does wonders for your dry itchy scalp, it gets rid of any dandruff there might be, and your hair just feels normal like it should. And the natural apricot and almond that they've used can just feel spectacularly soothing.
KeraCare Dry & Itchy Scalp is basically a moisturizing dandruff shampoo. Of course, it does work very well as dry scalp shampoo. But it does a great job of leaving your hair fully moisturized and manageable. Whatever itchiness there is, you can forget all about it right away.
But of course, we could go on and on naming every product out there. Let's go a little deeper into two popular products Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care and Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing.
The Head & Shoulders product, for most women, seems to do the job quickly and deftly. It stops the itching and completely clears out any dandruff there might be. Other women though feel that it irritates the skin. That feel that rather than moisturizing your scalp, it goes and dries it out even further. But that is probably some kind of allergic reaction at play. Unless you have this, you're going to be very happy with this product.
Aveda's product works great for women who have done a little too much to their hair in the past and just need something to soothe and moisturize their scalp. It does have a dusty sandalwood scent that some women may not really like. But apart from that, it does a very good job soothing, moisturizing and plumping up your scalp.
