Many of us have a sensitive scalp without ever realizing it. This vulnerable crown bears the brunt of sun damage, pollution, and chemical wear-and-tear from washing, coloring, heat treating, and more. Over time, the skin that makes up the scalp can get thrown off balance, get irritated, or even start to flake off causing the dreaded dandruff. If you aren’t already using a shampoo for sensitive scalps, these situations may necessitate a switch.
While washing your hair and keeping a clean scalp can be helpful in reducing sensitivities, if you use toxic, chemically-laden products to clean your hair, you may be doing more harm than good. Even a well known “dandruff-targeting” shampoo for sensitive scalps is packed with chemicals that actually exacerbate irritation and dryness. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to get your scalp back to health, remove product build up, and minimize sensitivities.
Soothing Shampoos to Balance pH
Davines shampoo for sensitive scalps treats tender heads gently with a soothing formula. Our naturally derived ingredients help quell inflammation, reset pH, and remove impurities that may lead to itchiness. By using nature-made ingredients we harness the power of Mother Earth herself whereas synthetic options found in other shampoos - like SLES, sulfates, parabens, and formaldehyde - make it seem like you’re getting a clean scalp, but in fact you’re stripping away natural, soothing oils.
While it’s tempting to want to wash at the first sign of excess oil, wait another day or two, then wash with a shampoo for sensitive scalps. Our polyphenol formula replenishes thirsty skin while removing grease, dirt, and grime, leaving you with a clean yet moisturized scalp. Follow up with a sulfate free conditioner to lock in moisture on dry tendrils and you’ll have the head of hair you’ve always dreamt of.
Even if you’re experiencing the slightest bit of discomfort, switch to a shampoo for sensitive scalps. If left to linger, itchiness, tightness, and flakes can become a larger problem requiring even more care and attention. Treat your scalp like the rest of your skin - clean it with good for you products that work with its natural properties and not against them.
