Many people have been asking me quite a lot lately of the best itchy scalp shampoo they can purchase. I was never one to hide the fact that I did suffer from an itchy scalp before. Not because I was proud of it or anything like that but because I want to share my experience and help other people get past this embarrassing condition. Throughout many months, I have tried a lot of shampoo specifically formulated for itchy scalp but not too many of them worked. But I was able to find the best ones that did wonders for my scalp. Here are some of the best shampoos out there that I highly recommend people with itchy scalp to try.

 

Tea Tee Itchy Scalp Shampoo

Itchy Scalp ShampooShampoos containing tea tree oil is found to be one of the most effective shampoos in treating an itchy scalp. Tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic that helps fight the bacteria and fungus that has built on your scalp causing it to itch constantly and flake. There are many brands of shampoo containing tea tree oil to choose from such as Paul Mitchell, Rainwater and Nature’s Gate. But if you want to try a more concentrated version, you can purchase tea tree oil in drugstores, department stores and other stores that sell such. Dilute the oil to 50% water and 50% tea tree oil. Massage the mixture to your scalp and leave it there to work its magic for about 10-15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and proceed with your everyday hair care routine.

 

Itchy Scalp Shampoo with Oil

In some studies I have read, it is found that one of the many reasons for an itchy scalp is having dry scalp. This means that your scalp has been stripped off its natural oils causing it to become overly dry and flake. Flaking can cause itching of the scalp. This is why choosing a shampoo that contains lavender oil and chamomile oil to be effective in relieving the itch. These oils are found to contain anti-inflammatory and calming properties that helps heal and control the itching. You can try Shu Uemura’s Scalp Cleansing Oil which contains eucalyptus oils that helps soothe dry scalp.

 

Anti Dandruff Shampoos

Itchy Scalp ShampooDandruff is definitely one of the major causes of having an itchy scalp. In fact, almost everyone I know who suffer from itchy scalp also suffer from dandruff. If you find that your itchy scalp condition is associated with having dandruff, using a shampoo specially formulated in treating dandruff is the best idea. You can try over-the-counter products such as Nizoral or Biolage Scalp Therapie Anti Dandruff Shampoo. These shampoos help cleanse the scalp because of product build up or residue which can cause dandruff.
