The problem

A dry scalp, sometimes known as seborrheic dermatitis depending on the severity, or itchy scalp bumps, sometimes referred to as scalp folliculitis, are generally the result of inflamed hair follicles.

It's unsettling to be itching your scalp in a meeting, or for someone to take your jacket and joke about snow, but rest assured a dry scalp is very common amongst both men and women, and most importantly: we can help! find chemistry

The solution

Sebum acts as a natural conditioner and helps to keep your hair soft, detangled and protected form environmental and physical assaults, so don't over wash the hair and strip your scalp of its natural oils. That said, if sebum, product build-up and dead skin cells accumulate on the scalp, they serve as food for bacteria which clog hair follicles and disrupt natural hair growth (so go easy on that dry shampoo).

Balance the scalp with Keranique's Micro Exfoliating Follicle Revitalizing Mask and Philip Kingsley's Scalp Toner - a match made in haircare heaven.

Every good skincare routine involves exfoliation around 2-3 times a week, but are you exfoliating your scalp? Keranique's Micro Exfoliating Follicle Revitalizing Mask helps to remove excess oils and product build-up from the scalp, clearing follicle congestion and addressing the modes of hair thinning and loss.

Containing physical exfoliants designed specifically to clear the scalp of debris and promote healthy hair growth, you'll reap benefits not only on the scalp but also deep within the hair strands.

Follow through with Philip Kingsley's Scalp Toner, designed to soothe and calm sensitive scalps. We like to think of it as a sigh of relief in a bottle.

"It's been developed by our world leading trichologists and is prescribed to clients in our London and New York clinics," explains Anabel Kingsley, a trichologist who also happens to the daughter of the late, great Philip Kingley himself.

"From over 60 years of Trichological experience, we know that a healthy scalp is vital to healthy hair growth, and our Scalp Toner’s unique blend of ingredients work to keep the scalp in optimal condition. Suitable for daily use, it's ideal for those with tendency to get a greasy scalp. It contains witch hazel to absorb excess sebum, menthol to refresh, cool and stimulate, and piroctone olamine, a highly effective anti-microbial agent that combats flaking and irritation."
