Itchy Scalp and Hair Loss
Combat Itchy Scalp Hair Loss Problems
Itchy scalp and hair loss can often go hand-in-hand. Itchiness can be the result of several things - allergic reaction to chemical treatments, heat, shampoo, conditioners or styling products. Itchy scalp can also come from excess oil production (Sebum) that can lead to inflammation, irritation redness and sores.
Itchy scalp hair loss problems can be more serious and may be signs or symptoms of dandruff, scalp psoriasis or dermatitis. Dermatitis, in particular, is caused by excessive hair oil and leads to flaking and sometimes itching. Products for hair loss can often address both thinning and loss as well as rejuvenating and healing the scalp.
Signs of scalp psoriasis may be chronic sores that are sensitive and generally localized on the scalp. Irritation and redness often accompany itching and scaling.
Hair loss can result and be associated with itching. Braiding and traction alopecia (hair under high tension) can lead to irritation and itching. Most common in African Americans, tight braiding pulls on the follicles and may eventually kill the root and cause loss. Remedies for an itchy scalp for African Americans are often the same for similar itchy scalp hair loss problems.
Regulating hair oils (sebaceous gland secretions) is a first step towards to reducing itchiness. Sebum, if not properly irrigated or controlled, can lead to inflammation, scalp bumps and flaking. Severe itching may occur and dandruff-like flakes together with dirt or accumulated hair product residue may complicate or increase hair loss. That is why taking care of itchy scalp hair loss is so important.
A shampoo for itchy scalp and hair loss can address:
- Painful or severe itchy scalp
- Burning, irritation and inflammation
- Itchy and flaking patches
- Excessively oily scalp and hair
- Inflammation and infection from allergies
- Scalp bumps and sores

Zinc has been shown to block DHT, a leading cause of loss and thinning in men, and slows and regulates sebum production. Thyme, Sage, Ivy, Burdock and Fenugreek soothe itching and increase circulation to heal flaking and sores.
To enhance healing and soothing itchy scalp and hair loss, we also recommend Emu Oil Conditioner. Used in conjunction with Follicleanse, Emu Oil Conditioner penetrates the follicle shaft and deep into the scalp to reduce inflammation. Emu oil is a natural antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.
Used extensively in hair loss products and in skin care, Emu oil soothes the scalp and helps heal abrasions, flaking and redness. Used in the top shampoo for itchy scalp, it works very well to calm inflammation, redness, flaking and bumps and sores.
