There are many causes of an itchy scalp.  Dr. Green takes you through each of them on “Itchy Scalp and Hair Loss? Dermatologists Reveal the Surprising Cause + How to Speed Regrowth” in Woman’s World this week.

Seborrheic dermatitis, a type of eczema is a common culprit. “Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes the scalp to become oily, red and itchy,” says Dr. Green, and that “Hormone fluctuations and environments such as low temperature and low humidity can both contribute to dermatitis.”  Whereas for hair loss, the most common cause of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, also known as female-pattern hair loss. “With this condition, hair follicle size naturally decreases and the hair becomes thinner,” Dr. Green explains.
