How to prevent hair loss due to dandruff and an itchy scalp


If youre worried your hair is thinning, there are simple steps you can take to keep your scalp healthy and keep your hair looking full and thick

*Hair loss is completely natural in fact, you lose hair every day. Youll normally find it on your hairbrush, in the shower or on your clothes. Its not always something to worry about as your hair regrows at a similar rate.

But when your hair breaks more easily and you start to see more hair on your hairbrush, it can be a worry.

But the good news is, by keeping your scalp in good condition you can keep your hair for longer, and keep it looking fuller and thicker.

Protect your scalp to hold on to your hair

Your scalp is the base from which your hair grows and is the foundation for strong, healthy locks.

Research has shown hair that grows from an unhealthy scalp is weaker and more prone to breakage. So make sure you look after your scalp and keep it healthy and your hair will grow from stronger, more stable roots.

Thats where Head & Shoulders shampoo can help. With regular use, its designed to care for your scalp and protect it from damage caused by dandruff. It also removes external irritants that can negatively affect your scalp condition.

In fact, we have formulated our Thick & Strong to help keep your hair looking full and thick.

It works too. In a 6-month clinical trial, men with thinning hair who used Head & Shoulders suffered significantly less hair loss than those who used a placebo. In fact, almost three quarters of participants who used Head & Shoulders experienced no increase in hair loss over 6 months.

Tackle the source of itching

Dandruff is a common source of itching. As your scalp becomes irritated by dandruff, it not only causes skin cells to flake off but can also cause your scalp to itch.

If you suffer from an itchy scalp, you could also be at risk of increased hair loss as scratching too much can damage the hair strands, causing them to break or fall out more easily.
