Itchy scalp and hair loss

Who has never suffered from an itchy scalp? It is a common skin problem that affects almost everyone at some point. If you have an irritated scalp, it is important to quickly investigate the underlying cause. This can sometimes be very difficult, because itching of the scalp can have many different causes. Some more serious than others. Various causes of itching on the scalp include shampoos or hair products containing chemicals and other aggressive ingredients. However, itching of the scalp can also be related to skin conditions such as eczema.

It is often claimed that an itchy scalp can contribute to hair loss, but we would like to debunk this. This is not possible. Yes, some skin conditions, such as autoimmune diseases, will cause hair loss, but an itchy scalp itself cannot do this. The underlying causes can cause an itchy scalp, which can, for example, inflame your hair follicles and this can lead to hair loss, but this is not due to the itching itself.

In this article we will discuss the most common causes of an itchy scalp and explain everything in detail!

An irritated scalp

Irritations to your scalp are usually harmless. It often has to do with an oily or dry scalp that makes your scalp itchy. Fortunately, treating an itchy scalp is not difficult. Please note that if you also suffer from dandruff, it is very important not to immediately reach for an anti-dandruff shampoo, because this can unfortunately also be counterproductive.

Common causes of an irritated scalp

A common symptom of an irritated scalp is itching. This itchy feeling can drive you crazy and can often lead to irritation, which is why it is important to resolve it quickly. If you are unable to do this yourself, it is best to visit your GP or dermatologist.

The cause of itching can be a skin condition. A skin condition that causes itching is, for example, decalvans folliculitis. This causes inflammation of your hair follicles and also causes red skin. Seborrheic eczema or atopic eczema can also cause itching on your head. Seborrheic eczema is often accompanied by red bumps. Hormonal changes can also cause itching on your skin, including on your head.

You may also get an itchy feeling on your head because you use too strong a shampoo and this irritates your scalp. In this case, it is important to change shampoo as soon as possible. In this case, you can use some tea tree oil to calm your scalp. Furthermore, dust, dirt or other pollutants can irritate the skin on the head. In rare cases, the itchy feeling may be related to a skin disease such as psoriasis.

Unfortunately, all the causes we mentioned earlier can also be accompanied by bald spots. The spots that appear on the scalp are additional symptoms that do not occur often. Fortunately, you can easily treat temporary hair loss and an itchy feeling. If the cause of the hair loss is treated, hair growth will recover after a few months. This can sometimes take up to 18 months, but at least you can be sure that your hair will grow back healthily!

Treatment of hair loss due to irritated scalp

Conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis are quite easy to treat with oral antifungal medications, special shampoos and/or antibacterial lotions.

Itchy scalp due to aggressive hair care products

As you have read before, certain substances in shampoos can cause itching. In severe cases, the itching may be accompanied by hair loss because the hair follicles are inflamed. We have previously explained that if you have dandruff you should not immediately reach for an anti-dandruff shampoo, because when your scalp is irritated it can often be difficult to tolerate a strong shampoo such as an anti-dandruff shampoo.

Other causes of an irritated scalp

Fortunately, most cases of an itchy scalp can be solved with simple adjustments. Consider switching to less aggressive shampoos with less aggressive ingredients. You can also treat itching of the scalp with medication or other care products.

Be careful with a sensitive scalp

Especially when it concerns something more serious, you naturally want to be informed of this as soon as possible. Is it autoimmune diseases, stress or an infection?

Allergic contact dermatitis

Do you suffer from an acute skin rash? Are they red spots or blisters? Then this could be an allergic reaction. This is often aimed at perfume, rinses, shampoos or foam-making substances.
