2) Dehydrated or Dry Scalp
Dry and dehydrated skin is different. Dry skin is a type that you are born with, it’s genetically determined and people with dry skin are prone to conditions like eczema. Whereas, dehydration is a condition that is triggered by internal or external factors like central heating or stress. If you have dry skin, even though our scalps are full of oil glands, your scalp could get dry too. A dry or dehydrated scalp is likely to feel tight and you may experience some unwanted flaking.
