Switch up your shampoo – Natural shampoos are often a lot more delicate for the scalp, as they do not apply any harmful toxins to the scalp area. I would also recommend trying a pH balancing scalp care shampoo, as this can eliminate yeast and nourish your hair.
Use dry shampoo in between washes – Use a natural dry shampoo that’s delicate on your scalp to absorb oil and prevent build-up. This reduces the chance of infection, and the growth of yeast. BUT, this is a double edge sword. You want to REDUCE the amount of hair styling products you use, not increase them. SO, make sure to only use dry shampoo once or twice in between washes, max. And, try a technique like co-washing to eliminate product build-up on your scalp.
If you have tried all of these and still experience scalp pain, there may be an underlying medical condition that you are unaware of. Many are not aware that headaches and migraines are also linked to a sensitive scalp. If this is the case, make sure to seek medical consultation from your dermatologist.
