Dry hair and scalp is caused by inactive sebaceous glands, and is aggravated by a dry winter or desert climate. The lack of natural oils (sebum) leads to a flaky scalp and hair that appears dull, dry and lifeless.{{more}}

Dry hair and scalp should be treated with products that contain moisturizers and emollients, frequent shampooing should be avoided along with the use of strong soaps, detergents or products with a high alcohol content, because they may aggravate the condition.

Dry hair should not be confused with overly porous hair that has been damaged by thermal styling, environmental forces or chemical services.
