9 Common Reasons Why Your Scalp Itches

Itchy scalp can be embarrassing, painful and just plain disgusting! Sometimes I wish it was possible to scrape my scalp off my head and just scratch like crazy! Some other times, I wish I could get a steel sponge or something harsh so that I can just scratch and scratch!

Occasionally I’m able to remedy my situation by washing my hair or by trying any one of the remedies in this blog post.

If you’re like me and you’ve been wondering why your scalp has been torturing you, you might want to click through these 9 common reasons why your scalp always feels so itchy.

1. You don’t wash your hair enough

When I started my natural hair journey, I would wash my hair every 7 days. But as my hair grew longer, I decided to stretch my wash days to every 14 days. Now, almost 3 years after making this decision, my scalp still hasn’t gotten used to this new schedule.

So on the 10th day, it would start to feel tingly and I’m quickly reminded that it’s been 10 days since I last washed my hair! Amazing eh?


The moral of this story is that when you don’t wash your hair regularly, you can experience a buildup of oil and dead skin cells that causes both flaking and discomfort.
