When it comes to skin, we’re all well aware that there are different skin types and skin concerns that require specific products to address their unique needs. The same can be said when it comes to our scalps. You might have an incredibly oily scalp which requires frequent hair washing and dry shampoo application, or perhaps you experience scalp dryness which causes irritation, itching and flaking. If the latter is more consistent with your experience, keep reading to learn about what dry scalp really is, as well as our best shampoo (and of course, conditioner) for dry scalp.
If you experience symptoms like itching, flaking, irritation or dry patches, it can be difficult to determine the cause. In order to remedy your discomfort, it’s important to understand if you’re experiencing dry scalp or another condition. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), dry scalp occurs when the skin loses too much water as a result of sun damage, overly stripping hair products, low humidity and cold climates. It’s often confused with dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis which can be caused by yeast living on the scalp, stress and other health related factors. If you’re experiencing inflammation or patches of discoloration, you should consult your doctor.
If dryness is the culprit of your scalp woes, it’s important to evaluate your hair care routine. Shampoos that are too harsh or stripping on your scalp will only make your discomfort worse. That’s why the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate Free Scalp Care + Detox Shampoo is our best shampoo for dry scalp—it’s detoxifying while remaining gentle. Not only is it safe for colored hair, sulfate-free and formulated without harsh salts which can be extremely drying, but the rich, creamy formula truly gives the scalp a good cleanse. This pick doesn’t make you choose between a comfortable scalp and clean hair—you can have both! Plus, the menthol and neem leaf extract provide a refreshing sensation (and scent) while using it.
To use the shampoo as part of our detox system, start by giving your scalp a light scrub with the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate Free Scalp Care + Detox Scrub. It’s formulated with apricot seed which helps to gently remove scalp buildup and treat flaking. Once you’ve massaged the scrub into your scalp and cleansed with the shampoo, finish off by conditioning your strands with the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate Free Scalp Care + Detox Conditioner to add necessary moisture back into your hair.
