What Are The Causes Of Dry Scalp?

Dry scalp can be caused due to many reasons. And you’re not alone if you have one, it’s pretty common. Some of it can be due to environmental factors like weather changes, your lifestyle or certain skin conditions that also influence your scalp. If you have naturally dry skin on your body, you might also have a dry scalp. Habits like washing your hair daily or using products loaded with chemicals like SLS can cause dry scalp as they are harsh on the skin. Factors like hormonal imbalances, skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema and health conditions like diabetes can also cause a dry scalp. If you dye your hair dry scalp might be may be a reaction to the chemical PPD in the hair dye. Certain medications for blood pressure and cholesterol drugs when taken for a long term can also be a contributing factor to your dry scalp issue.
