SCALP CARE
FAQ'S

Why is my scalp always itchy?

If you have a flaky / itchy scalp, please do not be embarrassed: you are not alone, and there are many effective products available to treat it. You could be experiencing an itchy scalp for many reasons including: Infrequent shampooing, hormonal changes and fluctuations, psychological or physical stress or cold or dry weather and climate. 

For immediate relief, there are many retail shampoos, scalp toners and scalp masks available. We suggest you use our award-winning Flaky/Itchy Scalp Shampoo and Flaky/Itchy Scalp Toner daily until your dandruff has cleared.


One of the best ways to keep your scalp clean is regular shampooing. We recommend daily shampooing, focusing the product on your scalp and the roots of your hair. 

You can also use a scalp mask. An exfoliating scalp mask is the perfect home remedy to combat flaking and itchy scalps. Use a scalp treatment weekly to deep clean your scalp and help remove dead skin cells. Acting as both a scalp scrub and cleanser, scalp masks are very effective in preventing product build up on oily scalps and hair that is washed every three days or less.
