One of the main reasons why many men give up on letting their hair grow is the dreaded and annoying itchy sensation that occurs during the first couple of weeks of growth. But, why is it produced? Even more importantly, is there a way to avoid it?
The first step in understanding this unpleasant problem. Then, being able to deal with it. Why? Well, in order to know the reason(s) why it occurs. If what you are looking for is a quick response, here you have it. A primary reason is because you might get a short haircut every 4 weeks instead of at least 6-8. It may seem like an absurd and simple answer, but largely due to that reason, nonetheless.
Another reason is due to dry scalp. If we combine a dry scalp and hairs with sharp and uneven edges that try to emerge through the skin of our head, we will obtain the perfect formula for authentically infernal itching.
Once the cause is known, then other questions will be raised. Once such question would be, “how long will I have to endure this?” Answer, everyone’s hair is different. This itching may appear even when your hair has already reached a decent length, but the reason why it occurs is unique.
Luckily, there are ways to handling scalp itchiness, especially with these tips.
The first step to minimize that irritation and itching is to use a good shampoo and conditioning formula. Every day, thousands of dead skin cells are released from your head. But now, your new hair look is trapping these dead cells and keeping them on the surface of the top of your head. Not to mention, the dirt that accumulates during our daily activity such as sweating or wearing a hat. You have to clean your hair regularly is the bottom line!
If you are thinking that the use of pomade is restricted only to the ones with extremely long hair, you are totally wrong. If you’re experiencing itchy hair, pomade could be your ally, regardless of whether you are just starting or already have long hair. The ingredients will hydrate, soothe your scalp, and lubricate your hair follicles so that the growth of your hair is much less annoying. Apply a bit into your hands allow your fingers to gently facilitate the penetration of the pomade.
The regular combing or brushing of your hair brings great benefits, not only to your hair, but also to your scalp. It’ll activate blood circulation and help you get rid of dead cells. Not only that, but also provide softness and shine to your hair. Basically, you will be forcing its growth in only one direction, thus avoiding the proliferation of those rebellious hairs like hooks that return to your head to cause itching and irritation. This is one of the reasons why your hair can itch when it has already acquired a significant length, In addition to the aforementioned dry skin. Use a good comb or brush with natural teeth or bristles and you will see how your hair acquires greater shine while simply looking better overall.
The hair on your heard is a delicate place, and growing hair can sometimes be a bit hectic. Taking the proper precautions to keep away the itch can make having a hairstyle that you worked hard for, even that more enjoyable.
