Shampoos For Itchy Scalp and Dandruff

10 Shampoos to Keep Your Scaly Scalp From Flaring Up This Fall

"Pull yourself up to your vanity rather than holding your arms up over your head, cup your scalp with your hands, and knead in a circular motion with the ball of your fingers," said Phillips. "It's going to help any debris that's sitting on the surface of the skin get dislodged."
