Why does every shampoo I try makes my scalp itch the same day?

Head and shoulders is just as bad! Is there something wrong with my health to effect my hair?

  • You are probably allergic to parrabens. Parrebens are in almost all shampoos. And they will make you itch. Try finding a paraben free shampoo, look up Eufora, and Surface. They are both parraben free and may help you.

    Head and Shoulders is awful! It has sulfur in it! Itchy!

  • It might not be the shampoo, it might be that the water is too hot. I find my head itches like crazy when I use water that is too hot.

  • look for all natural shampoos. There is a company called Lush ( they have really good natural products.

  • I suggest you try some of these shampoos.  They are natural and hand made and a little goes a long way.

  • It's caused by the cheap harsh chemicals in your shampoo & conditioner. The only shampoo I can use anymore is Jordan Essentials Original Shampoo. I use the leave in conditioner. No parabens, SLS or DEA. They are made in the USA.
