6 common causes of scalp itching
Dandruff and Flaking
In addition to the aesthetic concern it causes by snowing on clothes, dandruff is often associated with scalp redness, irritation and itching. A hair analysis by our experts in trichology will identify the origin of the problem and the best solution for your situation.
Shampoos and styling products containing sulfates, parabens, polymers, copolymers and silicones have the effect of weighing down and suffocating the hair. These irritating hair products create deposits on the scalp.
Dandruff can also be linked to a microscopic fungus – Malassezia Globosa – or to seborrheic dermatitis. The epidermal cells of the scalp renew themselves regularly. However, in the presence of this fungus, this natural process accelerates and exceeds the body’s ability to eliminate dead skin, resulting in dandruff.
As a preventive measure, it is best to avoid irritating hair products and use natural hair care products instead. At the Centre Santé du Cheveu, we work with high quality active agents that are adapted to each hair condition.
Scalp eczema is an inflammation of the skin that manifests itself by the presence of red patches and severe itching. In the most pronounced cases, scabs and oozing may also be observed. Our hair health experts will guide you towards effective and efficient treatments.
During an eczema attack, the scalp becomes sensitive and irritated. Stress, fatigue and hormonal changes can influence the intensity of itching.
Gentle on the scalp, vegetable and mineral dyes are an excellent option for people with eczema.
Seborrheic dermatitis, or seborrheic dermatitis, is a chronic inflammation that manifests itself by the formation of reddish patches covered with white or yellowish dandruff. This hair condition affects approximately 5% of the population. Our trichologists will help you to see more clearly and will propose you solutions to relieve your scalp.
Seborrheic dermatitis appears mainly in areas where numerous sebaceous glands are present, such as the hairline, scalp and face. It would be caused by the proliferation of a microscopic fungus, the Malassezia Furfur.
Without proper care, seborrheic dermatitis can lead to severe itching and flaking (dandruff). It works the same way as eczema, in flare-ups and attacks. Although not the cause, stress and fatigue are triggers.
In the case of seborrheic dermatitis, it is recommended to proceed with a pH analysis of the scalp. We offer this service in our office here in Rosemère, on the North Shore (Montreal). Our certified trichologists will be able to recommend appropriate solutions to balance and control the pH of your scalp.
Psoriasis is an inflammatory disease caused by a too rapid renewal of skin cells. It manifests itself by the appearance of red patches covered with scales and by scalp itching. It is possible to space out psoriasis flare-ups significantly and limit discomfort with specific care. The good news is that you are not alone!
Scalp psoriasis is related to genetic predisposition, but several factors can trigger attacks: stress, fatigue, anxiety, certain medications, infections, nutritional deficiencies, etc. A consultation in trichology and a hair analysis will allow you to obtain the products and care adapted to your situation.
Psoriasis does not prevent hair growth. Wounds can also appear. On a daily basis, it is important to use natural products and shampoos that are gentle on the scalp and have a high percentage of adapted active agents.
In the case of hyperseborrhea, the hair is weighed down at the roots, no longer breathes and has a heavier appearance. In addition to the aesthetic inconveniences, excess sebum can also be accompanied by redness, irritation and even hair loss. Our team will guide you towards the most effective, natural solutions adapted to your situation.
Seborrhea is a natural process that contributes to the good health of the scalp. Indeed, sebum protects the hair against external aggressions and ensures its hydration.
Hyperseborrhea occurs when the secretion of sebum from the scalp is higher than average. Several factors may be involved: hormonal imbalances, stress, diet, heredity, irritating hair care products, medications and some diseases.
Excess sebum can lead to hair loss. By consulting quickly, it is possible to slow down hair loss.
Dry scalp occurs when the skin’s natural hydration is disturbed. The scalp then becomes more sensitive to micro-inflammations and subject to itching, irritation and redness. With the right hair care products, the pH of your scalp will return to its natural balance.
A dry scalp can be linked to hormonal changes, external aggressions (e.g. pool water), irritating hair products, pollution, diet, smoking or certain medications.
Once the origin of the problem has been identified, our certified trichologists will offer you personalized hair care.
