Can An Itchy Scalp Cause Thinning Hair – What Are Treatments?

May 1st, 2012

The answer is a resounding, yes, but only if  you don’t treat the cause of the hair loss. The main reason that scalp conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, seborrhea, dandruff (both mild and severe), scalp acne, folliculitis and just a plain itchy scalp cause hair thinning and ultimately loss is due to the disruption that occurs inside the hair follicle.

Why Does Itching Your Head Cause Hair Loss or Thinning?
The answer is similar to the chicken and the egg concept. Which came first the itch or the inflammation. However, we can tell you that the answer is not important. The remedy is to remove the cause of the itch and the inflammation. If you do this then the hair follicle returns to a normal state.  The actual cause of thinning hair because of the inflammation is due to constriction of blood or food supply to the hair as well as the prevention of oxygen that comes in through the top of the hair follicle opening. The hair hair reproduction process is similar to that of a car  – it needs oxygen just as a car pulls air in through the air filter and then it needs gas which is the food supply that comes through a very micro set of blood vessels. If either of these is disrupted then yoo will have hair growth problems.

How Do You Solve This Problem?
The treatment is to remove the cause of the inflammation and remove the effect of the inflammation inside the hair follicle. 99% of the time – whatever is causing the inflammation is inside the hair follicle. It can be dirt, pollution, debris, sticky residue from hair products, hair gels etc. These make the hair follicle a breeding ground for fungus and bacteria. This bacteria can cause scalp acne, folliculitis etc. The fungus, malassezia can cause dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, seborrheic, scalp fungus in a host of other know type fungi including malassezia (the main culprit behind dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis). Malassezia fungus hair loss is probably the most common cause of hair thinning in women and very active as the cause of thinning in men. Do something to control this fungus and see great results!
