Hair eczema is an inflammatory skin disease that affects the scalp as a result of increased secretion of sebum on the surface of the skin by the sebaceous glands hidden within the dermis, which is one of the layers of the skin, which creates an environment that allows the excessive growth of yeast and fungi.
No treatment helps get rid of hair eczema quickly or permanently, as some cases suffer from this dermatitis for several years, according to “Your Beauty.”
But some steps reduce the severity of hair eczema and its irritation:
Clean the scalp regularly: It is very necessary to clean the scalp well and regularly, especially as it is exposed to a lot of dirt and deposits left by shampoo, conditioner, oils, and hair styling products, which may clog the pores of the scalp, and cause hair loss, dandruff and dryness. You can resort to natural mixtures to help clean the scalp, or use scrubs.
Use the right hair care products: To relieve and treat hair eczema, make sure to choose hair care products, especially shampoos and conditioners, that contain zinc pyrithione or salicylic acid, selenium sulfide, ketoconazole, or coal tar. These ingredients do not irritate the scalp but, on the contrary, soothe hair eczema.
Resorting to soothing creams: Your dermatologist may prescribe some soothing creams, or use any other type of topical steroid.
Stay away from stress: Since severe stress and constant anxiety are the causes of hair eczema, try as much as possible to stay away from everything that bothers you. Turn to some ways to help you get rid of these negative feelings, such as exercising, meditating, listening to music, and others
