Common Scalp Problems
The foundation for a healthy hair journey starts at the scalp. Whether you're experiencing minor scalp issues or long term irritations, treating it is key. 🔑
Common Scalp Problems include:
Alopecia is an autoimmune skin disease, that causes hair loss on the scalp, face, and other areas of the body. The body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles, causing them to shrink in size and dramatically slow down the growth of hair, so much that hair may completely stop growing. There may be a cycle of hair loss that involves unpredictable regrowth and loss of hair, over and over.
Dermatitis, also called seborrhea, is a type of eczema; it is considered a long-term inflammatory disorder, commonly found in areas of the body where there are a lot of oil glands, such as the scalp.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder. It is a chronic (long-term) inflammatory condition that involves periods of remission and relapse. In psoriasis, rapid cell growth results in thick, white, or red plaques, covered with silver-gray scales, itching, scalp lesions and progression of symptoms, starting with dandruff-like flakes.
Folliculitis is an inflammation of the hair follicles located on any part of the body (including the scalp), but more commonly, it occurs in the beard, arms, back, buttocks and legs. Folliculitis may be caused by several types of organisms like bacteria, fungus and parasites. The symptoms start as a reddened, painful, burning, or itchy area at or near one or more hair strands. It appears like red pimples, with a strand of hair in the center, that may have pus inside.
