Itchy Scalp- Medicated Shampoos? Read The Low Down!
Many people who suffer from scalp itch and flaking turn to
drug store medicated dandruff shampoos for a cure. There are many available at
your local store including Scalpicin, T-Gel, Head and Shoulders. Unfortunately
these shampoos offer only temporary relief from scalp conditions.
Most anti-dandruff shampoos that you buy contain
chemicals. Harsh chemicals often dry out the scalp and may only serve to
aggravate your problem further. These shampoos may stop flaking but the do not
address the underlying problem that is causing the scalp to itch and flake in
the first place. Your problem may seem to clear up, but the results are usually
only temporary and your original problems will come back in a week or two.
The only way too really stop uncomfortable scalp conditions
such as itching, flaking, bumps and sores is to address the actual problem. The
main cause of most scalp conditions is an imbalance of oil on the scalp. The
correct balance of oil is extremely important to obtaining a healthy scalp. If
too much oil is present problems such as seborrhea may occur. With too little
oil, a dry scalp, folliculitis along with scalp bumps may arise. An unbalanced
scalp is not healthy and actually becomes susceptible to many scalp conditions.
The best natural ingredient to create optimum balance in
the scalp is zinc pca. Zinc works to clean away any bacteria that has
accumulated on the scalp or in hair follicles. Then it actually regulates the
sebum gland so that it will not overproduce or under produce the oil needed for
a healthy scalp.
