Dry winter scalp -- what to do?
Wow, this hasn't happened to me in years! We're not even halfway through December and already my scalp is so dry & itchy & flaky! It's so gross. :puke: Dandruff shampoo irritates my scalp, and conditioners leave my hair feeling greasy. I normally wash my hair every three days with a non-sulfate shampoo, and use a spray-on conditioner on the ends (not on my scalp) when necessary to control tangles & frizz. That's usually enough but now the cold weather has really sucked all the moisture out of my skin, and that includes my scalp. What to do? I can't slather my head in the lip balm or hand cream that keep other parts of my body from doing this.
