Doing Away With Dry Scalp

Dry scalp is one common issue that women face, especially in winter where you are moving in and out of heated areas frequently. The skin of the scalp becomes tight and itchy and tiny flakes of dead skin are showered by combing and brushing. Dry scalp conditions are often misidentified as dandruff.  Dry scalp occurs when the hair strand exiting the scalp is not being lubricated by the sebaceous gland.
