Are you part of the large population of people who automatically scratches their head as soon as there’s mention of an itchy scalp? You may be itching your scalp right now as you read the title of this blog.
Head lice are one of the leading causes of an itchy scalp. They are tiny insects that feed on blood from the human scalp. An infestation of head lice usually results in direct transferring of lice from the hair of one person to the hair of another.
If you get a letter home your child’s school saying there’s a lice outbreak and your head instantly itches you may have something known by psychologists as a “hysterical condition.” This psychosomatic itching is caused by emotional anxiety that lice may infect you as well.
Dandruff is often associated with flakes, but the itchiness is also common. An irritated and oily scalp, not shampooing enough, yeast or personal care products can cause dandruff.
With increased sun exposure in the summer, your scalp has a higher chance of getting burned. A scalp that has been burned will begin to peel and create large pieces of skin to get caught in your hair.
