We sweat all year round of course, but it tends to be heavier when you’re out in the sun or work out regularly. Heat and sweat are not good for the scalp, either. They create the perfect warm, moist environment for microbes on your scalp to thrive.
If you have flakes, that’s an issue as it’s these microbes that cause irritation as they breakdown oils on your scalp into potentially irritating substances. It’s very common too – almost 75% of people in the world suffer from an itchy scalp.
What’s behind an itchy scalp?
Itching is a common response to irritation. When you skin becomes irritated, it sends signals to your brain that you need to scratch the affected area. As soon as its irritated, you get the urge to scratch. That’s where dandruff can be the culprit! Dandruff is caused when a microbe on your scalp breaks down natural oils. The by-product is oleic acid, and 1 in 2 people are sensitive to it. Remember to resist the urge to scratch, as this can damage the scalp even more and make the problem worse.
