How to Easily Stop Itchy Scalp & Pain
Any one who is facing hair loss problems knows that feeling – itchy scalp. It doesn’t stop there. Pains in the thinning areas may appear. These are deep pains, different that itchiness, it’s like feeling your follicles being abused by DHT, losing oxygen and getting heart. The thinking of your the follicles dying slowly… well it doesn’t help at all, it may even cause excessive stress that will result with excessive hair loss.
The way DHT damages the follicles is not fully known, research blames the DHT for causing the immune system to attack the areas that are sensitive genetically to DHT and damaging them. One thing is sure – the follicles are being effected, and along time lose their ability to create hair. Blood vessels that transfer nutrients and oxygen to the follicles are shrinking, the follicles are shrinking and perishing, just like a plan that can’t get water. This may be irreversible so it’s important to catch it on time – before the damage can’t be fixed by treatment.
DHT is known to cause inflammatory reaction in the follicles. This inflammatory is said to cause to pain and itchiness. The itchiness can be handled, and so the pain. The pain – is like hearing your follicles calling for help and the itchiness is like watching the follicle environment dries out. To stop that you should take action:
Handle pain in scalp:
- Use minoxidil and other follicle stimulators to increase blood stimulation and contradict the DHT effect that shrinks the follicles and the blood supply to them.
- Use DHT blockers to reduce DHT levels. You may use topical treatments such as Revivogen, Inhairit, Spectral-DNC-L etc, and also oral treatment such as Propecia, Saw Palmetto etc.
Handle your itchy scalp:
- Move to natural shampoos, that are also known to nourish the scalp.
- Use natural oils to prevent dry scalp and add moisture. Pure emu oil is very effective.
- Use propylene glycol free minoxidil. Men’s Rogaine Foam is a good choice, and also Minoxidilmax. Propylene glycol is the main cause for scalp irritation, redness, drying itchy scalp and dandruff.
- Combine anti dandruff & hair loss shampoos such as Nizoral and Revita Shampoo. They are known to reduce inflammatory.
I suffered from itchy scalp for years, but once I changed my regimen and followed the above – no more dandruff and scalp issues. The pain in the sensitive areas (frontal scalp area) had gone once I combined DHT blockers and follicle stimulators. What surprised me the most was that once my scalp got heather – I saw the effect on the hair – it grew better, shedding was reduces and regrowth was noticeable faster then before. It’s possible that using regular minoxidil (that includes propylene glycol) caused me scalp irritation and shedding that prevented the hair to reach its regrowth potential. As I see it, many people don’t see results in their hair loss treatment just because they do not think “out of the box” and take care of their scalp. I know that because I was in that place, and my results were too slow. Itchiness and pain are a call for help, and singles that there is a problem, this problem should be handles and eliminated with the right tools (right = effective).
Imagine that your scalp is the soil and the follicles are the seeds. You must treat the scalp like you would treat the soil if you want the seeds to grow healthy, beautiful flowers. So – wake up and take action now, keep the seeds alive and healthy and you’ll enjoy the results!
