Sensitive scalp - All the facts/myths

You can use baby shampoo if you have sensitive scalp

Itching can be linked to seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis

TRUE - Itching often accompanies symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff, redness) or psoriasis of the scalp (hyperkeratotic plaques).

Sensitive scalp can occur without any visible abnormalities

TRUE - This corresponds to the very definition of a sensitive scalp. People can experience itching, tingling, tightness, burning sensations and/or pain with no related visible symptom on the scalp (such as dandruff, redness, plaques, etc.).
