Why is my scalp peeling in chunks?

Dandruff causes flaky skin on the scalp. Dandruff is a common scalp condition that causes small pieces of dry skin to flake from the scalp. These flakes can be noticeable and may cause embarrassment if they fall on to a person's shoulders. However, the condition is not contagious or harmful to overall health

1. Add Milk Dip a washcloth into freezing-cold milk (two percent is best) and gently press it against the scalp. he enzymes in the milk bond to the skin and promote healing. OR Use the AlFAPARF Semi Di Lino Scalp Relief Sensitive Skin Calming Tomic..which contains a combination of probiotics and prebiotics  to keep the skin barrier in balance. It restores the scalp and hair natural balance.

2. Scrub Away Chances are your scalp is peeling. But don't reach for a dandruff shampoo—the chemicals in it could irritate your scalp further. Instead, use a clarifying or exfoliating shampoo, like the ALFAPARF Semi Di Lino Energizing Low Shampoo to gently cleanse and sooth the scalp. This will get rid of flakes and balance the scalp.

3. Avoid Heat It sounds obvious, avoid heat tools.  Applying additional heat to the area could result in significant, and even permanent, damage.

4. Cover and Prevent To avoid further burning, and to disguise flakes, pull your hair straight back or switch your part. And next time you head out, apply a sunscreen to your scalp which is easy to apply and won't make your hair look greasy or chalky.
