It's hard to have an itchy scalp in public without feeling like a character on Breaking Bad. The most common culprit for a case of the itches is dirty hair, which a good shampooing can fix. There's also ongoing dandruff, and in summer especially, a scalp sunburn could be the cause. To help you get a handle on the issue, we sought the advice of a hair expert for the best way to soothe an itchy scalp, regardless of the reason behind it. Keep scrolling to see what it is!
Celebrity hairstylist Bobby Eliot, whose clients include Hailee Steinfeld and Jenna Malone, swears by a product called Cake, by indie-cool line Garrett Markenson’s Reverie. "It's a product I've discovered that is technically formulated to promote hair growth, but its blend of essential oils, including rose, frankincense, bourbon vanilla, sandalwood, palmarosa, balsam, ylang-ylang, and patchouli, help to soothe the scalp from any irritation and any unwanted itchiness," he says. "Just apply a small amount to scalp, clean or dirty; massage; and leave in."
The formula is intensely hydrating and soothing and, as Eliot mentioned, can actually help promote hair growth while ending your itching! How's that for a win-win? It's also made with organic ingredients and contains none of the bad stuff, like lauryl sulphate, silicones, or parabens, so it's safe for color-treated hair and daily use.
