Damage to your scalp:
There are alot of damaging and irritating chemicals in many shampoos such as Sodium Laureth Sulphate or Sodium Lauryl Sulphate which makes shampoo foam up. It’s also widely used in dishwashing liquids, car washes (degreasers). It is a skin irritant (they sometimes use it in laboratory trials to irritate skin for testing products) and is known to dry scalp, corrode hair follicles and damage your hair. Its hard to believe it is in MOST big brand shampoos….there are others to look out for too that are also potentially carcinogenic. Yes, Sls is one that has had some publicity, however there are others just as bad to watch out for, especially when combined with other ingredients….this factor is little known but is a common cause of recurring flaky sore or dry itchy scalp.
Using natural oils and/or herbs from your garden can help to soothe your itchy, burning scalp…try using 10 drops of teatree (melaleauca oil) mixed in with your NON Sodium Laureth Sulphate shampoo. This helps with itching. Another quick remedy is to rinse your hair with warm chamomile tea.
