Sun Burned Scalp Leads to Flaking.
Problem: Hey T! I got sunburn on the top of my head and now it looks like I have dandruff! Please help!
Tip from Tia:
Thanks for reading! This happens more often than you think, but tends to be more noticeable if your hair is dark or if it was a bad sunburn. There’s an easy solution to help reduce the scalp from flaking and looking like dandruff.
I recommend first, wetting your hair with warmer water. Then use olive oil on your hair, starting at the scalp and working it down to the ends.
If there is no pain left from the sunburn, take a comb and run it across the scalp. This will loosen the dry skin. Massage the olive oil into the scalp.
Leave on hair for several minutes up to 20 minutes max.
Shampoo and condition as usual. Process may have to be repeated several days later. Do not use everyday, oil can build up and cause other issues. This is also a good treatment to do monthly to maintain healthy hair.
