Sensitive Scalp

Scalp sensitivity is due to a lack of some nutrients or aggressive hair treatments. Sensitive scalp causes a sensation of heat, discomfort, irritation, and can cause pain and itching.

Causes of the sensitive scalp:

  • UV exposure;
  • Hypersensitivity to specific ingredients in hair care products;
  • Aggressive treatments;
  • Seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis by altering the skin microbiome.


You should choose a shampoo for sensitive scalps, which gently cleanses while restoring its essential balance, and soothes and reduces discomfort, burning, and itching. 

Phytoapaisant, Ducray Sensinol, and Vichy Dercos Ultra Soothing are good options for relieving discomfort on sensitive scalps.
