  • I would definitely switch to different shampoo and condition, preferably something organic and see if that helps alleviate anything. My other suggestion, and this is going to sound dumb, but make sure you rinse very well. GL!

  • There are other dandruff shampoos out there. Do you have flakes?

  • Could you be allergic to any of the hair products you use? Hairspray? Gel? Anything?

  • No flakes either. So irritating! Its been going on for about a month!

  • I found that if there is blue dye in my shampoo or conditioner that my scalp itches. Try an anti-allergy shampoo and see if it helps.

  • Do you have very thick hair? I do and if I don't dry my roots with a blower I get itchy. Kind of weird, but it was the stylist that recommended I blow dry every day and sure enough it made a difference. Maybe it's the summer heat, could be causing your scalp to be extra dry or extra oily or something? Good luck!
