- Why scalp itchy?
The most common cause for itchy scalp is dandruff. While the exact cause for scalp dandruff is not definite, people with oily scalp types tend to be more prone to dandruff because Malassezia yeast thrive in oil. This bacteria yeast leads to accumulation of dead flaky skin which causes itching and scalp redness. Other causes for scalp with dandruff could be due to stress and hormonal fluctuations too.
Product buildup with hair styling products especially with products containing silicone (eg hair conditioners or hair sprays) can make your scalp itchy and irritated. Product buildup can clog your hair follicles. Just imagine the layer of silicone sitting atop your scalp and trapping the dirt.
Another reason for scalp itch is contact dermatitis, which is the same allergic reaction when your skin reacts to certain products that contains irritants or allergens to your scalp.
Other possible causes for itchy scalp include fungus ringworms or head lice.
- What causes scalp acne and how to treat scalp with pimples?
Just like pimples on our skin, scalp acne occurs when hair follicles get clogged by dirt, bacteria and oil. When your sebaceous glands produce excess sebum, it can clog your pores and result in pimples on scalp.
We recommend washing your hair thoroughly to remove excess oil and hair care products that is build up in our clogged pores. In most cases, a doctor will recommend a scalp treatment or medicated scalp shampoo. These shampoos usually contain ingredients like
- tea tree oil, an essential oil that helps eliminate bacteria on the scalp
- salicylic acid, which helps to get rid of dead skin cells
- glycolic acid, which can help exfoliate the scalp
- Can oily scalp lead to hair loss?
A little oil is ok, as the sebum’s important role is to help protect healthy hair. But it is essential to keep your scalp cleansed.
Oily scalps when left unmanaged, especially in hot and humid climates, tend to get even oilier. If too much sebum builds up on the scalp, it traps dead skin cells and dirt particles. This clogs up the hair follicles and can lead to scalp problems such as hair thinning, premature hair loss, itching and scalp acne.
Sebum from the scalp will also weigh down on your hair, making your hair looking flat and greasier to touch.
- How to get rid of oily scalp?
Use Cossu Scalp Detox as a DIY home scalp treatment for oily scalp. It uses carbonic acid to gently exfoliate scalp and remove the serum and dirt that are clogged in your hair follicles. Scalps are also healthier when the pH levels are slightly acidic, as it helps reduce bacteria and fungi.
The more expensive option to help detox your scalp would be professional scalp treatment in Singapore. Most hair salons will steam the scalp to help loosen buildup, then they'll deep cleanse the entire scalp pores with scalp exfoliation products.
Avoid applying conditioner to the scalp. It makes your scalp greasy, promotes hair fall and bacterial growth. Instead of applying your conditioner all over, just apply from the ends of your hair and work upwards, avoiding the scalp entirely.
- Why scalp treatment? Can i just wash my hair with shampoo?
Scalp treatments helps unclog and lifts oil and dead skin cells off the scalp more thoroughly than shampoo. Problems can arise if you don’t deal with the oil buildup, as it can cause scalp problems such as hair loss and itchy, flaky scalp conditions. Healthy hair begins at the scalp, so we should treat our hair like our skin and exfoliate our hair follicles regularly.
- How often should a scalp treatment be given?
We recommend doing COSSU hair scalp treatment once or twice a week at home in the beginning to detox and get the dead skin under control. For oily scalp treatment and itchy scalp treatment, you may do so more often (2-3 times a week).
Following that, once you notice that your scalp oil is lesser, you can reduce it to three to four times a month. But if you have a scalp condition like scalp psoriasis, do consult a scalp specialist before starting your scalp care routine.
Feels good when the foam pops picking out the sebum on the scalp.
Perfect for that scalp refresh. Scalp feels clean and sparkly, with a subtle fragrance.
So far so good. Will continue to monitor if it is worth purchasing more.
Easy to use, does provide scale cleansing benefits, not harsh on scalp
Fun to use! Scalp felt refreshed and cleaner. Hair was less oily after using. Great product!
