My scalp & shoulders are itching really bad

I haven't been brushing my hair as much bc I cut it shorter & my scalp, neck & shoulders are itching like crazy. I dont know wtf. I've been scratching up a storm and some spots are getting sore. I'm sick of the itching. I did switch shampoo and conditioners coz it was cheaper but this didnt happen til the bottle was half way gone. i did dye my hair but its already grown out about 1/2 inch and i've used the dye before with no issues. Should I dry a dandruff shampoo? antihistamine? what? help lol this sucks

  • It could be dry skin, which doesn't happen right away after switching shampoos. It could be an irritation towards the shampoo or an allergic reaction, which again can happen half way through the bottle. Switch to a moisturizing shampoo and see if that helps.

  • Could be an allergic reaction to the new shampoo & conditioner. I can't use conditioner & there is only one shampoo I can use without breaking out.
