Dry scalp, no hair dryer, and a cold, wet head

Recommended Posts

The dry, cold weather here in the PNW is really aggravating my dry, sensitive skin. I start flaking on my hands and face by the end of the day if I don't moisturize mid-day. Now, my scalp is so dry that it's beginning to flake. The hair dryer makes it even worse. I've been doing some deep conditioning treatments and avoiding the hair dryer, and those are beginning to help. But it's so cold, I can't stand to go around with wet hair! Any ideas?

Consider going no-poo. Depending on the texture of your hair, it's possible to just use very warm water or baking soda or conditioner only, reducing the frequency of "washing". Shampoo really dries out hair and scalp.


I used to have losts of dry flakes, but since I gave up shampoo, they've gone away.
