While having dry skin or a dry scalp does not directly lead to hair loss, having a healthy scalp is very important for healthy hair. One common way to promote the health of your scalp is by frequently washing your hair. Regular exercise and decreased stress levels have also been known help promote a healthy scalp. The most common cause of dry skin on the scalp is seborrhoeic dermatitis. This condition is believed to be caused by irritation from a naturally occurring yeast. Seborrhoeic dermatitis can easily be remedied by using a medicated shampoo specifically created for treating this condition. You should visit your dermatologist to correctly diagnose the cause of your dry skin before beginning any treatments.
If you are experiencing hair loss, it is most likely caused by something other than your dry skin. Some of the most common causes of hair loss include genetics, poor nutrition, poor blood circulation, and medication. If you suddenly notice more-than-normal hair loss occurring, you may want to seek a physician’s advice. Bosley Professionals can inform you if there is a problem, what the condition could be, and offer the appropriate treatment or solution.
