I use a tar shampoo made by neutrogena about once a  week.  It made a WORLD of difference.  You can pick it up at most drugstores.

I strongly recommend any kind of mint and green tea scalp therapy.  Mine gets like that a couple times a year and after using it for a few days, it always clears up.  I use one from Paul Mitchell and it is great.

Hi Hi. 

(sorry if this is Too Much Information, but) I actually have psoriasis on my scalp that massively breaks out when I get stressed.  Sometimes I get perscriptions which help a lot.  But Neutrogena T-Gel (or anything that says T-Gel or tar shampoo) helps a lot.  Phillip B also makes a good “anti-itch” shampoo that you can get an any apocathery.  All of them smell a little funny, oh well.  Apply just to the spot and leave on for awhile (5-10 minutes) before rinsing.  It will help, I promise!

I’ve used that tar shampoo & PM’s green tea shampoo, conditioner & 5 minute scalp treatment in addition to many other products.  I would suggest using a product called scalpicin also if it is really bothering you.  It isnt a shampoo, but a clear liquid that you can put on in the evening a few nights a week with flare ups. Between that and the shampoos, it has helped my scalp a lot.

Right now I am actually using a mint/rosemary shampoo and conditioner by biotanticals – I am a big fan of it so far!

This may sound weird but put whipped cream and massage in ur scalp leave it for 10 mins and then wash ur hair 🙂

Coconut oil does wonders as well 🙂

tea tree shampoo! I have the same problem and it gets so itchy~

I haven’t tried it myself, but Aveda Scalp Remedy I heard also balances your scalp and therefore reduces the irritation.

also, I was told to be sure not to over-cleanse your scalp or wash it everyday. Scalp is like your skin~ with pH of 4.5-5.5~ so if you over cleanse or over stimulate it might be more irritated.

selsum blue really works for me.  I get this about once a year due to a pollen allergy, but I have used scalpicin for more imediate relief.

Even organic shampoos can strip your hair and scalp depending on the kind. Try apple cider vinegar rinsing–I’d actually ditch the shampoo altogether (actually, I have ditched it altogether in favor of baking soda rinses)–to bring your scalp back into balance. I just dump a handful onto my hair, rub it into the scalp and rinse it out… should help balance everything and make your scalp less itchy. I do it about once a week (or less).
