Sensitive Scalp Shampoo

Why is my Scalp Sensitive?

If you have a tendency towards sensitive skin it could easily be transferred to your scalp. If you suffer from dandruff and your scalp is sensitive you might have redness, itching and resultant flaking. A red, itchy scalp can lead to scratching and damaged, broken hair follicles, even hair loss.

What can I do?

Eliminate that irritated, sensitive scalp by changing a few simple habits.
  1. Find a dandruff shampoo that reduces the symptoms of dandruff and scalp psoriasis; like Therapeutic Denorex Maximum Itch Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner or Extra Strength Denorex Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner.
  2. Avoid showering with hot water; the milder the temperature the better for your skin.
  3. Be gentle. When you lather your dandruff shampoo into your hair, be gentle about it. A vigorous scrubbing might feel good temporarily on itchy skin, but it’s causing more harm than good.

What Sensitive Scalp Shampoo Should I Use?

We recommend you choose a shampoo that tackles the root of your dandruff troubles. Less dandruff symptoms means less irritation, less itching and less scratching; all good things for a sensitive scalp like yours.

Try thoroughly (and gently) shampooing your hair and scalp with Extra Strength Denorex Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner. It contains Salicylic acid which smoothes the skin by promoting the shedding of psoriatic scales and medicates your skin while loosening and washing away dead cell build-up.

Or develop a weekly routine using Therapeutic Denorex Maximum Itch Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner with Coal-tar. Coal tar helps slow the rapid growth of skin cells, alleviating your symptoms and reducing your flakes and scaling substantially. Plus, Therapeutic Denorex has Menthol which tingles on the scalp and soothes red, itchy scalp.

Treatment for Scalp Psoriasis

If your sensitive skin is severe and you think you might be suffering from Psoriasis you should consult your doctor. A proper diagnosis and treatment plan is essential before proceeding. However, keep Denorex in mind; upon diagnosis many doctors will recommend starting with topical treatments that include salicylic acid and coal tar (the active ingredients found in the Denorex products above).
