FAQ: WHAT IS A SENSITIVE SCALP AND HOW DO YOU TREAT IT?

Having a sensitive scalp essentially means the skin on your scalp is more easily irritated, just like sensitive skin on your hands and face

In fact, the scalp is the third most common area of the body to experience sensitive skin.

If you have a sensitive scalp, you may experience itching, redness or irritation. You may also notice dandruff, as your scalp is more likely to be aggravated by exposure to dandruff irritants.

Sensitive skin may also be aggravated by factors like stress and pollution – factors that can make dandruff worse too.

Here are some tips for treating a sensitive scalp:

  • Use an anti-dandruff shampoo to keep your scalp healthy and tackle any dandruff
  • Avoid harsh products -  Head & Shoulders Sensitive Scalp Care shampoo with aloe vera is clinically proven hypoallergenic. It helps calm irritated skin and has no colorings and minimal fragrances to keep it kind to skin
  • Wash your hair in warm water but avoid water that’s too hot as this can irritate the skin on your scalp
