Sensitive Scalp

Restore the softness and comfort your scalp deserves.


A sensitive and irritated scalp is prone to redness, itching and feeling hot, so it is particularly fragile and uncomfortable, susceptible to overreact to products generally considered harmless to most people.


Causes it?

  • Stress, fatigue, physical and mental tiredness

    Stress and emotional imbalances are some of the most common causes of a sensitive scalp. These can trigger an inflammatory response in the body, which can affect the health of the scalp. When the body is in an altered emotional state, a range of hormones and neurotransmitters are released that can affect the skin, including the scalp. In addition, this can also promote increased oil production, which, in turn, can worsen sensitivity symptoms.

  • Sunburn

    When exposed to sunlight for an extended period of time without adequate protection, the scalp can become sensitive and irritated, leading to symptoms such as redness and discomfort. In addition, excessive sun exposure can dehydrate the scalp skin, which can further aggravate sensitivity. It is important to protect the scalp from sun exposure by wearing a hat or scarf and applying sunscreen to exposed skin. If the scalp becomes sunburnt, it is essential to use moisturizing lotions and cool compresses to relieve sensitivity and reduce inflammation.

  • styling and drying tools

    When in contact with the scalp skin, the heat from styling tools such as hair dryers and flat irons can cause irritation and dryness. To avoid sensitivity caused by styling tools, it is crucial to apply heat protectants before using them, besides limiting their use to an absolute minimum. It is also important to wash your hair regularly to avoid residue build-up on the scalp, in order to avoid exacerbating your sensitivity.

  • skin problems

    Skin problems like psoriasis can affect scalp health and cause sensitivity. Psoriasis is a chronic condition described as an accumulation of skin cells, forming red, scaly patches. When it affects the scalp, it can cause symptoms such as itching, flaking and tenderness. In addition, psoriasis can also cause inflammation, which can aggravate sensitivity and lead to hair loss. It is fundamental to treat psoriasis properly to control symptoms and prevent complications. This may involve the use of topical medication such as corticosteroids and keratolytic agents.


speak for themselves

A scalp prone to inflammation and redness, often with intense itching and feeling excessively hot.

Sometimes, there is numbness or throbbing, or even pain in the most affected areas. At times, it is also possible to visually detect a sensitive and irritated scalp.


to consider

Try to solve the triggering situation, rest, avoid stress and stay active.

Make a daily effort not to scratch! The discomfort tends to increase, and you will inevitably touch your hair more. The need to wash it more often will increase, thus starting a cycle that tends to worsen your discomfort.


should i do?

  • 1.

    Choose a dermo protective shampoo so that you can rediscover your scalp’s balance and comfort.

    The right amount of gentle cleansers and emollient ingredients protects the skin barrier, for a smooth and well-cared for scalp that will be at the base of a visibly healthy hair.
  • 2.

    Avoid very hot water when washing; instead, use lukewarm water.

    Very hot water can dehydrate and irritate the scalp, leaving it red and prone to inflammation, and can even also cause burns. Finish rinsing your hair with cold water to close the cuticle layer and prevent/minimise hair shaft damage.
  • 3.

    Do not use products that may worsen your discomfort.

    If you are a “regular” when it comes to aesthetic-cosmetic procedures, find your rebalance first. Do not add products other than those you are usually comfortable with.
