WHY THAT ITCHY SCALP MIGHT DAMAGE YOUR HAIR

Your immediate reaction to an itchy scalp might be to give it a good scratch but resist the temptation! Scratching your scalp can damage your hair.

While it’s a natural reaction to itchiness, scratching your head can cause serious damage to both your hair and scalp.

Itch can be a sign that your scalp is unhealthy. Itching is triggered by histamine, a chemical in your body that’s released as part of an inflammation response.

Your body releases high levels of histamine when it’s irritated or in distress.

Unhealthy scalps make unhealthy hair

It makes sense that to have the healthiest hair, your scalp needs to be in good shape, and scientists have shown that it’s true.

Hair that grows from a weakened scalp has more permanent cuticle damage than hair from a healthy scalp.

Scratching can damage scalp and hair surfaces even further.
