An itchy scalp does not only bring shame, but it could also affect the mood of a person. Of course, there’s embarrassment in scratching your scalp constantly and some people might think that you are inflicted with lice.

Itchy scalp can be caused by a number of things, and one of them is poor hygiene. Oil build up in the hair due to improper washing could cause the scalp to itch, and the dead skin causes irritation.
