What’s causing my head to itch?

A number of lifestyle changes can cause a scratchy scalp. Hormones, stress, diet, even a change in weather. 

What can I do to fix it?

A scalp specific shampoo is always the best place to start. Redken has a Scalp Relief line of shampoos for the three main causes of an itchy scalp.

1. My issue is... dandruff

Anti-Dandruff Control. This powerful shampoo utilises zinc to eliminate the irritation and flaking skin, while also moisturising to hydrate your scalp. For best results leave on for five minutes before washing out. Try it out today..

2 . My issue is… oily hair

Oil Detox. This oil-free shampoo rebalances the pH level of your hair, and uses micro-sponges to absorb any excess oil. Buy Oil Detox from our store..

3. My issue is… a sensitive scalp

Soothing Balance. This gentle shampoo soothes and calms the scalp, with eucalyptus and licorice extracts to help relieve tension and tightness. Check it out here.

Can I still use my anti-frizz shampoo?

Yes, you can have the best of both worlds! When you are having issues with your scalp we recommend using a shampoo to fix any issues, then using a conditioner specific to your hair type. Once your hair issues have been restored, you can go back to using your normal shampoo.

How do I make sure it doesn’t come back?

What’s changed in your lifestyle recently? While the scalp relief shampoo will fix the issue, you need to look at the root of the problem to ensure it doesn’t come back. If it’s stress, make sure you’re creating ‘me’ time every week, whether it’s a brisk walk, yoga class or just reading your book on the couch.
