Prevent Dry, Brittle Hair During Winter

An itching scalp can be quite irritating and can damage the hair follicles. As the weather gets colder, this can cause your scalp to peel and become itchy, which ultimately results in dandruff. Sometimes dandruff can also be caused by product build-up—not winter weather. Regardless of the cause, generally speaking, the lack of moisture is the main cause of dry itchy scalp. This causes the scalp to produce less sebum, which results in the flakiness. 

Before hopping in the shower, massage the scalp with a good hair oil. Oils help to replenish the natural scalp oils and can moisturize dry hair too.
