A sensitive scalp is one of the most annoying problems out of other hair problems and can be one of the hair fall reasons as well. However, if detected at the time, it can be treated easily. In fact, you can try some easy tips to prevent a sensitive scalp. If you are having a hard time these days, here are a few tips on how to deal with it.

1. Pick hair products carefully

You will need to ensure that you pick a gentle and mild shampoo, in case you have a sensitive scalp. There are many shampoos that contain aggressive components that can damage the scalp by making it dry. Such as sodium Laureth sulfate, is a common product ingredient that contributes to an itchy scalp. People with a sensitive scalp must check carefully the ingredients used in the shampoo before they buy any products.

Taking such a precautionary measure can be the difference between having a healthy scalp or an itchy one. You should then try using products that are able to reduce irritation and prevents inflammation.

Moisturize your scalp

2. Moisturize your scalp

When our body or face is dry, we reach out for a moisturizer. The same thing should be done when it comes to the scalp as well. By moisturizing the scalp, it will continue to be healthy.

3. Change your styling routine

Consider giving it a break and opting for something a bit gentler, if your hair is high maintenance and you are continually styling or coloring. An easy way to reduce irritation that has built up over time is giving your hair and scalp time to recover.

You can return to your previous styling routine, once things have settled down and consider styling it back in slowly, and supplementing your routine with some changes such as keeping away from harsher styling products and using a milder shampoo. Try to use styling products in moderation which are the reason for flaky and itchy scalp.

Ditch the hairdryer

4. Ditch the hairdryer

Hair dryers produce intensive dry heat that dries out your scalp and can leave it feeling sore and damaged. Therefore try drying your hair naturally once a week. Also rather than blasting it until it is completely dry consider holding your hairdryer further from your scalp and partially drying it.

5. Soothing treatments to revive the scalp

There are a number of essential oils and herbs out there that can soothe a sensitive and famished scalp. Aloe Vera pulp is known to soothe itchy scalps and treat burns while Apple cider vinegar is effective for those with curly hair.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.

Hi all, I had a problem with my hair, and I visited Advanced Hair Studio, Hyderabad. Here, the experts are amazing. My low hair density problem was explained very nicely, and some solutions were suggested. The solutions were fantastic. If you have any such issues, I recommend that you come and make an appointment. There was a lot of care and attention displayed by their staff in handling my hair fall issue. Similarly, the receptionists are both friendly and courteous, and the atmosphere is clean and fresh. This clinic deserves 5 stars.
