Itchy Scalp in Summer – What Causes It?
If you suffer from itchy scalp, you might think the problem is worse in summer as temperatures rise and you sweat more. Here's what's happening to make dandruff appear worse.
But the weather is not always the root cause. In fact, it’s quite likely to be dandruff.
Itching is a common sign of dandruff and during the summer months, your scalp is exposed to external factors, which can aggravate a dandruff problem, thus making your scalp itch more than usual.
How to treat an itchy scalp in summer
To get rid of an itchy scalp caused by dandruff you need to tackle the root cause of the problem – dandruff.
Choose an anti-dandruff shampoo like Head & Shoulders, which contains the active ingredient zinc pyrithione – it’s been proven in hundreds of clinical studies to tackle the dandruff-causing microbe and to remove flakes.
