2. Soothe Your Scalp

Do you suffer from a dry and stinging scalp? Control flaking by using dandruff shampoo, followed by a conditioner. Sonia Badreshia-Bansal, M.D., an American Academy of Dermatology spokesperson and dermatologist in private practice in Danville, CA, says to steer clear of two-in-one products, which contain a shampoo and conditioner all in one, or if you use such a product, still follow up with a stand-alone conditioner since your hair needs more conditioning if you have dry skin.
Pampering tip: “For a more intense treatment, try a leave-in conditioner which can moisturize both your scalp and hair, or apply baby oil to your scalp at night, cover with a shower cap and go to sleep. Wash it out in the morning,” says Badreshia-Bansal.
