Do you often have to scratch, scratch, scratch? Oh my itchy scalp? This can be embarrassing in public!

Anyone who has experienced the symptoms of itchy scalp, would certainly know how frustrating and discomfiting the experience is. So it pays to take good to care for your hair and scalp.

Itchy scalp starts as a mild inconvenience. Minor annoyances can change to full-blown, scalp-on-fire situation. That is can’t-keep-your-hands-out-of your-head, can’t stop scratching your head.

Lets see what causes the irritating symptom that we suffer from time to time, having an itchy scalp. The cause may be seborrhoeic dermatitis. Dermatitis means inflammation of the skin, and seborrhoeic means it affects the areas where there are sebaceous glands. These are the glands that make the oil (sebum) for the skin.

The affected areas are scalp, the forehead, the face around the eyebrows and either side of the nose, armpits, behind the ears, under the breasts and the groin. The cause can be various, like the skin is sensitive to the germs that live in the sebum of skin in most adults.May also be poor hair care or poor diet.

The symptoms are bad dandruff. This is a mild symptom. Dandruff is scaling of the scalp because of seborrhoeic dermatitis. The scalp may also become itchy. Mild patches of flaky skin may also develop on the face.

The worse condition is when rash develops like roundish patches of reddish, scaly, greasy skin. The rash may spread to various other areas of the body.

Scratching your itchy scalp is embarrassing in public, and cause a lot of discomfort and even hair loss. Recently I met SAM and he was wearing a golf cap. He said that he is ashamed to take the cap off because he has got a lot of dandruff. So I asked him if he would use an organic, chemical~free SHIKAKAI Shampoo. He agreed. After one week I met him again and he said that he does not scratch his scalp that much as before. The shampoo worked good for him.

See in this video what he has to say about the organic, chemical~free SHIKAKAI Shampoo from Real Essence.
