There is almost nothing worse than the nagging feeling of a dry and itchy scalp. Your hand repeatedly snaps to your head to relieve the tingling, but that just results in white flakes scattered all over your hair and shoulders, giving you that dreaded dandruff look.

Some shampoos sport claims that they can help dry scalps. While not every one of these shampoos can, there are several that have proven their worth and really do the job as promised.

What Causes Dry Scalp

Dry Scalp is not a complicated condition. Your scalp simply does not make enough natural oils. This causes an irritated dry scalp which, while harmless, is absolutely insufferable.

There are other possible underlying causes for a dry scalp. One possibility is that you could be damaging your hair by washing it too much or using harsh shampoos that contain nasty chemicals. Other possibilities are old age, eczema, and even the climate you live in.
