Tips for Caring Your Scalp from Dandruff and Dry Skin
20 September 2023

Have you ever experienced constant itching on your scalp? It could be a sign that your scalp is lacking nutrients. Nutrient deficiency on the scalp can lead to two bothersome problems, namely dandruff and dry scalp.

Although different, dry scalp may initially resemble dandruff. It's not uncommon for dry scalp to be the root cause of dandruff.

Distinguishing Between Dandruff and Dry Scalp

Dry skin isn't limited to your face. Your scalp can also become dry, resulting in itching, irritation, and flakiness. The flakes that peel from the dry scalp look different from dandruff. Signs of a dry scalp include small, visible white flakes near the hair roots.

On the other hand, dandruff flakes appear larger, yellowish, and oily. Another distinctive feature of dandruff, which can also be observed on the scalp, is that the scalp feels oilier, and the flaking is not as dry.

Although dandruff and dry scalp are two different conditions, they can occur together. This is because a dry scalp can become more susceptible to the growth of the Malassezia fungus, which causes dandruff. Not all dandruff causes itching; it typically occurs with fungal-induced dandruff. However, a dry scalp is prone to itching. This itching arises from the dry and nutrient-deficient condition of the skin.

Continuously scratching the scalp will only lead to irritation and more severe issues. So, the only solution is to care for your scalp to keep it clean and healthy.

Tips for Keeping Your Scalp Healthy

Dandruff and dry skin problems won't afflict a clean and healthy scalp. The initial step to maintaining scalp moisture is by drinking an adequate amount of water every day.

Remember, you are what you eat. Consuming healthy foods is also effective in hydrating and nourishing the scalp. Increase your intake of seafood protein, including salmon, oysters, tuna, and other fish rich in peptides and omega-3 to nourish the scalp.

Another good practice for maintaining scalp health is to reduce excessive use of a hairdryer. Using a hairdryer occasionally is not a problem.

In general, the high temperature from a hairdryer can reduce scalp moisture. Imagine if your scalp is exposed to the heat from a hairdryer every day. A tip: if you must use a hairdryer, try setting it to the cool mode.

Now, the last tip for caring for your scalp from dandruff and dry skin is to switch to using the best anti-dandruff shampoo. Considering that dry scalp and dandruff can be challenging to differentiate, you can use a shampoo that focuses on scalp health.
