Q. I have noticed recently my scalp is flaking and itchy? What do you recommend?

If you have a dry, flaky scalp, it may be time to make some changes of your hair-care routine… Shampooing your hair the right way, by rinsing thoroughly can be an easy fix.

Give L’Oreal’s “Instant Clear Shampoo” a try. Make sure you rinse with cool water until the water runs clear of suds, that’s key. Shampoo remnants left behind in your hair could result to dry scalp and flaking. Being in the hot summer heat adds dryness as well. When going to the beach or pool, be sure to cover your scalp with a hat especially during these crazy summer months. 

If you have oily scalp that is flaky or if you have a heavy dandruff that’s accompanied by intense scalp itch, the problem may be a form of eczema, which causes irritated skin to become red and inflamed. Scalp psoriasis could also be the cause of flaking accompanied by itchy and irritated scalp. In these cases I recommend Kerastase Bain Clarifiant, Clarifying Shampoo for Oily Scalp/Oily Hair.

A full line of Loreal professional and Kerastase products are available for sale at the Salon at PGA National. 

And as always it doesn’t hurt to check with your dermatologist as well for peace of mind.
