Millies Top Tips for Treating a Dry Scalp

Caring for a Dry Scalp 

There are many causes that can lead to our scalp to become dry and irritated. Your scalp is your skin and in the same way our skin can become dry so to can the scalp. A lack of naturally secreted sebum can directly affect the scalp being able to keep itself lubricated and moisturised. Other factors that can affect dryness of the scalp include:

  • Over-washing with stripping/harsh products  
  • Stress 
  • Medication 
  • Hormonal Changes  
  • Change in weather 
  • Extreme Change in diet  
  • Illness  

Is Dandruff the same as dry scalp? 

Dry scalp occurs when the scalp is lacking in oil, becomes irritated and flakes off. Dandruff  on the other hand is a build up or an over production of this oil along with an overgrowth of yeast which eventually needs to be shed and flakes off. 

How to treat dry scalp 

Let’s tackle this the same way we would our skin. With dry scalp we want to treat both topically with a range of products as well as internally with specific supplements to treat both sides of this double sided organ that we call skin. This will give us the best result and hopefully the quicker results.  

Recommendations for dry scalp: 

Annutri Grow It Oil 

Irish made Annutri has so many benefits for the scalp including replacing fatty acids and lipids on the scalp and hair reducing the loss of moisture. It protects the hair follicles and keeps them healthy and strong. This hair oil also nourishes and strengthens the hair shaft 

Kevin Murphy Scalp Spa Serum 

This serum is lightweight enough to use daily on the scalp. It helps to regulate sebum making it perfect to use on both dry or oily scalps. I love a multi-function product! It contains celery seed extract which soothes and moisturises itchy irritated scalps. 

Kerastase Bain Riche Dermo Calm  

This shampoo is ideal for a dry itchy uncomfortatble scalp. It targets the cause of irritation as well as nourishing the lengths.  

Top Tip: Always shampoo twice. Leave your second cleanse on the scalp for a few extra minutes before rinsing to allow for better penetration of ingredients. 

Annutri Grow It Supplements  

Not only will this supplement maintain and stimulate healthy hair growth. The amazing combination of nettle, zinc and spirulina promotes a balanced scalp with increased resilience. 

Advanced Nutrition Programme Omegas + 

Unlike other Omegas this mega supplement contains vitamin A which is the main vitamin responsible for all over skin(scalp) health. The combination of Omega 3, 6 and evening primrose oil moisturises and anti-inflames irritation in the skin (scalp).
