Best Products for Dry, Itchy Scalps

Katherine Gayle February 17, 2022

Dealing with dry skin is an uphill battle during the winter. Our scalps overproduce natural oils as our skin becomes drier, causing irritation. Treat your scalp the way you would pamper your skin with high-quality products designed to target your hair concerns.

Did you know? "Dirty hair" doesn't cause dandruff, but the oily build-up can contribute to flakes if you don't wash your hair often enough. Below, check out the best products for dry, tight and flaky scalps that work wonders on ALL hair types!
