Dirt and sweat

Dr. Shainhouse explains that when you don’t tend to wash your hair often enough, dirt, its natural oils, sweat, and product residue buildup forms, causing you to scratch a lot.

If you go to the gym on a regular basis, it’s best to wash your hair after an intense day, as sweat can irritate the scalp, making you scratch a lot.
