Finding the best shampoo for dry scalp can be difficult, especially if you also have other hair concerns such as lack of volume or hair loss that also need targeting.

What is Dry Scalp?

Dry scalp can be caused by a number of factors, but medication, genetics, the environment and product choice all play a huge part. If you have dandruff, flaky and itchy skin or red scalp, chances are it's irritated and needs some attention.

If you live in a built-up polluted city, or are frequently exposed to smoke or the sun[1], external aggressors can cause your hair to become dry and irritated, which in turn has a big impact on your scalp health. Similarly, certain medications can cause scalp dryness[2], and using the wrong haircare products can cause major irritation. It's important to isolate which of these factors are causing your dry scalp, but using a shampoo specially made for the issue will help relieve and calm down any flare-ups.
