Causes and Symptoms of Itchy Scalp

Seborrheic dermatitis, also referred to as dandruff or cradle cap in case of children, is one of the most common causes of Itchy Scalp. Skin conditions like Contact Dermatitis, Scalp Psoriasis, Ringworm of scalp, Folliculitis and other fungal and bacterial infections may also affect the scalp and cause itching.

The presence of head lice too may cause intense itching on the scalp. Besides, factors like dry scalp, inadequate hygiene, overuse of chemical hair care products, scalp sunburn and stress tend to increase the risk of developing this problem.

Scalp irritation, redness, pain and itching are the primary symptoms of Itchy Scalp. The condition may also be characterized by the presence of pus filled bumps on the scalp and area behind the ears. Scratching the Itchy Scalp persistently may further lead to scaling of the skin, swelling and hair loss.

• Application of olive oil, margosa oil, coconut oil and tea tree oil is also beneficial in Itchy Scalp home treatment. In this regard, a combination of olive oil and almond is regarded as a therapeutic natural remedy for Itchy Scalp caused by dandruff.

• Boil a mixture of three bags of chamomile tea and about three sprigs of rosemary (chopped). Then, cool and strain the mixture. Finally, rinse the hair with this solution to cure Itchy Scalp naturally at home. Alternatively, a combination of crushed rosemary leaves and chamomile oil can also be used.

• Lemon juice is also considered good for hair. Thus, simply rubbing some lemon juice on the scalp and rinsing the hair after a few minutes is one of the most effective Itchy Scalp home remedies.

• Add two drops of peppermint oil in a cup of water and massage the scalp gently with this solution for a few minutes. Finally, wash the hair to relieve Itchy Scalp due to dryness. Similarly, warm jojoba oil is useful in moisturizing the scalp and hence easing and soothing Itchy Scalp due to dryness.

• Applying aloe vera gel on the scalp for about ten to fifteen minutes and then washing it off is one of the most popular natural home remedies for Itchy Scalp.

• Massaging the scalp with a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water is another natural cure for reducing Itchy Scalp considerably. To prepare this home remedy, mix one part of apple cider vinegar in four parts of warm water.

• Simply combing the hair about 5-6 times before bed time is useful in improving blood circulation in the scalp and getting rid of scalp problems.

• Baking soda is considered highly beneficial for easing and reducing Itchy Scalp. For this, apply a paste prepared by adding some water in baking powder on the scalp for about half and hour and then wash it off. It would be better to apply some extra virgin olive oil on the scalp and hair before using this remedy.

Diet for Itchy Scalp

When dealing with Itchy Scalp, it is recommended to have judicious amounts of foods rich in vitamin B, vitamin C, zinc and iron. Spinach, lettuce, pulses and other such vegetables, seeds and nuts rich in proteins are also beneficial for the scalp and hair. Plus, consume adequate amount of dairy products, especially yogurt.

Besides, choose hair care products wisely. While choosing a shampoo, opt for a shampoo with a pH between 4.5 and 5.5. Moreover, in case of fungal infections, choose a natural shampoo with anti fungal properties.

Keeping these tips and suggestions in mind and following the natural home remedies for Itchy Scalp are not only useful in alleviating this problem but also beneficial in preventing loss of hair.

    I have itchy sclap. I tried the lemon, it gave me a relief. Is castor oil with vitimin E good for your sclap and if yes, how often to apply it?

  2. I had been a fan of Kids’ Loreal shampoo since I was a teen ONLY cause of the scent…yes I have used it just recently but im grown up…Can kids’ shampoo cause itchy scalp? I DO have thick hair…Just wondering if its the shampoo or perhaps I havent rinsed it out enough NO matter what shampoo I use?

    • most of your conventional shampoos (ESPECIALLY heavily scented ones) contain chemicals/synthetics that can cause irritation and allergic reaction. Use naturally-scented products, like those with essential oils, and avoid perfumes! This is very important in treating scalp conditions.

  3. The above remedies sound good but I don’t see anything for itchiness caused by hypothyroidism. Does anyone have any information about this. Also, my hair is very dry and brittle.

  4. noticed my hair is thinning out i believe its due to dying my hair. I noticed last couple of times my scalp would burn a lot and I kept dying my hair every 6-8 weeks. how can prevent my hair from falling, and how can I restore my scalp? please help thank you.

    • If you are having hair breakage/hair falling due to excessive dying, its most likely over porous and over damaged due to over processing. I would recommend going in about once a week to get a scalp/hair treatment with a stylist. He/she can better examine the cindition of your hair and help you get it healthy again.

    • You could try o find a diffeent dye, or you could get it done professionally. I belive there are also products to prep your hair for the dye, and products to take care of it after. That should all help, but I would simply suggest not dying it, instead adding hilights to get a color that you like. Highlights are easier on the hair, and a subtle way to change a hair color that you don’t like.

      • I have the same scalp condition (self-diagnosed) and it has kept me from srtntiag the locking process. If I don’t wash my hair every few days I have terrible buildup and scaling on my scalp (which deveolps into dandruff). I too have found sulfur 8 to be helpful despite the bad’ ingredients. You have to do what you have to do! It gets really rough dealing with this condition. Glad you found something that helps soothe you scalp.

        • I have the same problem with my hair with the scaling, buildup and dandruff. Sulfur 8 doesn’t help that much. What I found was it’s a yeast overgrowth. If I watch my sugar, bread intact and concentrate more on proteins and water, my scalp problem disappears. But when I go back to the junk food, my scalp flares up. Get on a good probiotic and yogurt regimen, watch the sugars, and see if your scalp gets better….the atkins high protein diet really helped my skin and scalp.

    • As a hairstylist I would recommend that you try to stop coloring your hair. If you can’t then do a scalp treatment in-between. Youc can use any creamy conditioner. Coat your hair and scalp throughly ( until your entire head is covered with conditioner). Then message your head for 5-7yes minutes. Place a plastic bag over and leave up to an hour. The cap will produce heat that will open pores. Rinse well and repeat as needed.

    • I have dyed my hair since high school due to early graying. It has also caused early hair loss. To combat you should use a really good shampoo and conditioner (I highly recommend Redken). Only dye with permanent once every 8 weeks and use Loving Care in between, or you can also many of the makeup or hair pen options to hide roots for a bit longer (available at Sallys Beauty Supply). Hope that helps and hope you see this since your post is so old. Good luck!

      You are almost certainly reacting to PPD’s in your hair dye, unless you’re colouring your hair blonde. I believe (not positive) blonde contains little or no PPD’s. I had a severe allergic reacting to PPD’s after almost 20 years of dyeing my own hair, requiring a trip to the doctor. After about 25 hours of internet research, I found a hair dye called “Tints of Nature” that contains no ammonia and has the lowest possible levels of PPDs. While I do still react, it’s minimal and disappears after the next shampoo, which I do about 2-3 days later. Tints of Nature is reasonably priced (between $15-20). Were it not for this hair dye, I would be a very sad “white hair!” This hair dye does NOT damage your hair either, although I’ve never had damage to my hair from dyeing it. Just lucky, I guess! 🙂 Good luck to you!!

    • My first question to you is do you go to a salon to get your hair colored, do you buy your devoloper and dye sepret, or do you use a box? Box color is worse for your hair and is alot more damageing to it. If your using box color that could be where the burning issue and thining of the hair is from. Box color generally has a higher content of devoloper. (Hydergon proxide) This higher consentration can cause Irritation to the scalp, burning, and overprocessing of the hair which can lead to breakage and thinning.
      My second question is if you buy you devoloper and dye seprete what are you using? You could be alergic to something in the base of the dye which could explain your symptoms, and were that the case, I’d suggest switching brands. Your problem could also be with the devoloper. The higher the number you see on the bottle, the harder it will be on your hair and your scalp. If your using a 40, try a 30 or a 20. While all three options are perminent, the 20 is the safest option.
      Lastly, if you do go to a salon, bring it up with your hairdresser. She will be able to better assess the problem by looking at the scalp to see if it’s a scalp condition or just irritation. If it is a scalp condition she may refer you to a physician, as medical treatment may be nessicary before continued services. Espically those involving chemical services.

  5. the lemon juice one made my head burn~!

    • If lemon juice made your scalp burn, then you may have blisters on your scalp. Make sure the blisters heal before using lemon juice.

  6. I began having severe reactions to most other shampoos and conditioners. My dermatologist did some patch testing with Made From Earth’s Tea & Protein Shampoo and my skin is so sensitive to many ingredients in just about everything. I am very sensitive to smells as well and this one was not so strong. I was hesitant because tea tree oil can be pretty pungent but it was actually quite pleasant. The Made from Earth products are fabulous. I honestly didn’t know what I was going to do when I found their shampoo and conditioner.

  7. I NEED COMPLETE CURE AND I NEED TO STOP MY HAIR LOSS. THIS MAKE ME WORRY OF IT

    • STOP EATING GMO.know your food. detox and don eat fastfood or gmo. lso blood electrification ndont get vaccinated. detox from heavy metal. RAW DAIRY AND COLONIX. annnddd sta away from systems especially religion..this is GUARANTEED to work.. n o yeah! NO FLUORIDE!

      • Hi Vanessa
        I agree with most of what you said. I just think, maybe stay away from systems but don’t stay away from God! His word, the bible, says “Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.” “Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and he will lift you up.”
        I hope all will turn to him.

        • Is it really necessary to bring God into something that has absolutely nothing to do with religion? Please, you sound like a lunatic.

      • Vanessa, Like Dmomma I agree with most of what you said but girl please explain how religion got into this?!! I’m sorry but religion is not the issue, people are, our misinterpretation of God and our stress causing ways so unless we want to avoid the whole world then we might have a bit of a problem. And actually studies show faith is good for your overall health and wellbeing.

    • kathy manchester says:

      i have had eczema in my scalp for months,i noticed hair fall,i tried lots of natural remedies but they didnt stop the hair loss,until i used vatika oil,it contains cactus and garlic [no garlic smell]i also use the shampoo,my hair has improved a million percent,no more hair loss,i want to recommend these products to anyone suffering scalp and hair problems,you will be amazed how good they are..

  8. Taking one pill a day of Zinc.
    Checking your thyroid function/blood test plus doing your part in observing your symptoms. American standards are different then in Europe. (In Europe, I am diagnosed with low function of hypothyroid gland, but in US doctor told me that I am not. The fact is, that I had all the symptoms of low function of hypothyroid so I needed to find a doctor who would listen my symptoms and prescribe me medication).
    For hair loss, the best way is to apply cold press castor oil. Massage your scalp every evening, and wash out the next morning.
    Instead of using conditioner, rinsing hair with apple cider vinegar diluted with water (1 part vinegar and 4 parts water). Massage into your scalp while rinsing.
    Wash your hair once a week with clarifying shampoo once a week. I use Giovanni.
    Wash your hair once a week with Tea Tree Shampoo Giovanni. (so, you will be washing your hair twice a week, no more).
    Before washing your hair, apply one of the following: neem oil, three oil, jojoba oil, a. vera gel, castor oil, almond oil, …. wash your hair after 30 minutes.
    Brushing your hair is important.
    Always use fresh and clean towel.
    Wash your combs and brushes every day with soap and warm to hot water. Air dry.
    Air dry your hair when ever possible. On half dry hair, use oil of your choice for your hair ends. My hair is super short and I use a bit of castor oil, or any other oil for my hair ends and styling.
    If your scalp is continue itchy try mixing one spoon of baking soda with a bit of your shampoo and rub into your scalp. Vinegar rinse as usually. In the beginning of my problems, I had a small spray bottle mixed with vinegar. :((
    Hope this will help!

  9. Hair straighting iron will cause redness in sculp resulting in dandruff, depending on how bad its done. Keep your natural hair the way it is and if you dont like it change your diet or something in your life style (workout) cause the hair type you were born with is the type that best fits you

  10. im suffering for itchy scalp after my hair spa in a salon.and iy caused me irritation,i can’t sleep at night.what should i do for my relief??please hepl me..thanx!

  11. AnonymousPerson says:

    I have lice and it’s too late to get Nix or other lice repellant. So, we used the apple cider vinegar with water idea. We also put in German Chamomile essential oil and lavender essential oil. The lice on my head started appearing on my head, like literally rising to the surface. It’s easiest to do this if you have a family member to do it for you. Be strong and DONT ITCH! The itching could cause damaged scalp and bacteria. THANKS!! 🙂

  12. I ‘received’ lice this summer on a mission trip, i treated for several weeks, and after 3 or 4 months, i was declared ‘lice free’ by my doctor. i still have what appears to be nits, but the doctor says its only dandruff. it is extremely itchy. I have been using selsum blue dandruff shampoo for over 3 weeks, and if anything it is more itchy, not less….. is this lice? how do i make it stop?????
    thanks, and this website was helpful, i will ask my mom to help me with the lemon juice one tonight 🙂

    • Miss Apple says:

      Dandruff shampoo is extremely drying. Only use it once a week. You need to apply a moisturizing oil to your head before you wash next time.

  16. Concerned Dad says:

    My 12 yr old son has been complaining about an itchy scalp but the are no signs of lice or any red spots. There are however, small bumps that you can feel but are hard to see and these areas are the ones that he finds extremely itchy. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    • Beachmomma says:

      Sounds like a fungal infection. Not sure about natural remedies, but Selsun blue is the over-the-counter solution.

  17. “• Baking soda is considered highly beneficial for easing and reducing Itchy Scalp. For this, apply a paste prepared by adding some water in baking powder on the scalp for about half and hour and then wash it off. It would be better to apply some extra virgin olive oil on the scalp and hair before using this remedy.”

    Which is it? baking soda (in first reference) or baking powder (in subsequent reference)?

  18. Vit c and Kelp (seaweed) tablets taken together will stop hair falling out and stop breakages..It will make your hair stronger..For itchy skin, two things which work is good quality sea salt…dip a clean cloth in water with salt added and pat over skin and allow to dry….oats aka as porridge works wonders too for both itchy scalp and itchy body….use a stocking (clean), cut foot out and pour oats into foot of stocking and tie off the end….place it in a dish or small bucket of warm water and squeeze the wet oats until water looks milky….use the milky water and pat it all over your itchy skin or scalp..allow to dry naturally….almost instant relief.

      yes thats what happens to me I hate it I have tried head and shoulders itchy scalp shampoo and dandruff soothing conditioner, and as soon as I apply my head goes cold and it feels nice and no itch but after awhile, the itch just comes back and my head is sooo red, I don’t want to try anything of these remedies without feedback on them. did u cure your itch, and what did u use?

  22. propecia stopping hair loss says:

    thank you for beneficial ideas and basically fantastic information

  23. Brooklyn,
    You have all the symptoms I have had for the last year and a half. I have systemic yeast infection. Please look this up on your computer because you will need to follow the candida diet. Also please take this diet seriously. Yeast feeds of of sugar!!! It is critical that you
    Eliminate all sugar from your diet including hidden sugar in condiments,
    Vitamins etc. Please research this because I will tell you it only gets worse!!! You can get it under control by stopping all sugar, bread,pasta,
    Fruit and high carb veggies. Along with taking a candida fighting remedy you get at the health food store! Candida is serious but you can find remedies all over the Internet and remember absolutely no sugar or yeast or pasta and bread!!! Also most important is you need to by a quality probiotic not a cheap one! You have to replace the healthy flora in your gut! It should take a week or two to get symptoms under control but that is just the beginning. The yeast will come back with a vengeance if you don’t stay on this diet! Millions of people have this but do not know because the medical profession is new at recognizing and exposing what candida is and how devastating it is on the system. Also,absolutely no antibiotics or steroids! In most cases this is what cause the imbalance of good bacteria in the system to turn to the fungal form of candida that destroy your system if not taken care of! Please research this I can’t ex it all here. Thankyou

  24. I just wanted to also say fruit is the healthiest food to eat along with green veggies but not when your itching all over from candida. Systemic yeast feeds of of all sugar, so until you get enough good intestinal flora in your gut to replace the candida fungus your system is of balance causing all kinds of problems including rheumatoid arthritis,depression and in worse cases cancer. There is a huge list of problems candida overgrowth causes so look it up on Internet to find them cause I don’t have the time here to go into it. They say for every year you have had it you must stay on the candida diet for at least a month to get it under control but don’t go back to your old eating habits! I don’t eat ant processed foods. Your system sees then as invaders and acts accordingly! The medical profession does not make people aware of this while billions die at a fairly early age and they make billions of of people who are unaware of the impact of the food they eat! And how they can also be cured by eating raw uncooked fruits and veggies! This is real food not processed chemicalized poisons that are causing half of the symptoms I have read on this page!! Don’t rely on a doctor to tell you this. It’s your responsibility ultimately…
    And one last thing, alot people with strong sugar cravings that seem impossible to resist have yeast in there system that makes them crave this sugar and believe me you have to be smarter
    than this fungal parasite! So if you have unexplained itching anywhere
    in your body that’s persists and drives you crazy than you have a yeast problem. Please believe me not to rely on a doctor to tell you this and research it yourself because I was misdiagnosed three times. They thought the itchy rashes were poison ivy at first! I went through needless suffering and job loss when instead I could have understood the concept of the importance of gut flora and systemic yeast!

    • What probiotic do you recommend? I also have the extreme itchy scalp and hair loss. – All came from taking steroids for poison ivy. And now I have toenail fungus too – but more concerned about my hair and the awful itch I cannot get rid of!!

  25. frances boland says:

    i have itchy scalp for weeks now driving me mad i tryed olive oil in my hair it worked great itch gone but put shampoe in before wetting your haire

  26. PS, on the dry itchy/flaky scalp related note, I do have a major issue with this and have tried all kinds of shampoos that are supposed to solve this problem. It got better when I changed my diet and reduced the sugar and grain intake but I fell off the wagon and it is back with a vengeance so I have been using a mixure of 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1/4 cup of distilled water for the past few days. I let it sit for about 40 minutes and then wash it out. I also use a mixture of a few drops of peppermint oil and distilled water and keep it in a small squeeze bottle and use it throughout the day to help with the itch. My next experiment is to reduce the amount of times I wash my hair per week and use a sulfate free shampoo after the vinegar soak. I know you aren’t supposed to wash daily but the itching seemed to get worse if I didn’t because I had so much hair. I just cut it all off so it shouldn’t be as bad now. We will see.

  27. If have sores all over my head, after visting a saloon where a cliper was used on my hair. Its very painful too and swells up most time. With nodes at the back of My hair. The pharmasits say its fungi. Am taking a steriod table,cream & shampoo with compound ketoconazole its two week now still no improvement rather new rashes are coming up.wat do i do?

  28. I can’t keep my hair for a very long time. Why is it always tough to eliminate itching or dandruff. Does it have anything to do with blood?

    One thing I have actually noticed is that often there are plenty of common myths regarding the banking companies intentions while talking about foreclosures. One fantasy in particular is that often the bank would like your house. The bank wants your hard earned money, not your own home. They want the cash they lent you along with interest. Preventing the bank is only going to draw a foreclosed realization. Thanks for your write-up.

  37. My mother-in-law sliced a cucumber and rubbed it on her head, into her hair. She likes to use natural things on her skin/hair. The problem is that now she has a non-stop itch and even the doctors aren’t sure what to do. My husband and I believe that the cucumber was old and she possibly has a bacteria or even botchulism..in her hair??? I know this sounds crazy. I’m thinking that using apple cider vinegar will get rid of it.

    If nothing has worked to relieve your itchy scalp you may be hyper-sensitive to touch as I am.

Any thougths on those??

  46. Itchy scalp/ Dandruff is caused due to one single reason – Constipation/ Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Our rectum has got the tendancy to absorb moisture. If our bowels are not clean then the rectum starts absorbing water from the body resulting in dry skin. Scalp is the most affected area and forms dandruff due to dehydration caused by rectum which does not get emptied regularly. Even our stool starts rotting inside the rectum which forms pungent gases like sulphides and nitrides. These chemicals when get absorbed into the blood may cause many more ailments like pimples, boils, arthritis, chronic cold (DNS), giddiness, pain in the calf muscles, etc. Unclean abdomen therefore is just like taking these dangerous chemicals from outside – thus distorting the whole body. So make it an aim to keep your bowels clean. If you have to go to the loo more than once in a day, then do go. 50 % of the diseases are cuased due to malfunction in digestive system. Please refer to ancient Indian Medical Science – Ayurveda.

    Thanks for any other great article. Where else may anyone get that kind of info in such a perfect method of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I’m at the search for such info.

  50. I haven’t tried any of these remedies yet, but they do sound like they might be pretty effective, judging from the comments. Right now, I use a medicine I’ve purchased a few times, and it seems to alleviate the problem, but not greatly. I’ve also used Tiger Balm, which has about the same effect, and is also quite relaxing, thanks to the eucalyptus content. I would not recommend Tiger Balm if a person has really dry, broken skin, which is often the result of scratching; it’ll burn and that’s not pleasant! However, for mild irritation, it seems to work well.
