Self-care advice for
managing the scalp

Nearly one in five of the Great British population experience a medicated hair problem, whether it be dandruff, dry, sensitive or itchy scalp.*

If you’re tired of symptoms such as itching, flaking and redness, medicated shampoos can help. A treatment shampoo that contains coal tar works by reducing cell turnover and reducing itching.

Don’t let dandruff define you.

Type of shampoo

It is important to use the right type of shampoo to treat the symptoms of scalp conditions such as dandruff, seborrhoeic dermatitis of the scalp and scalp psoriasis.

Frequency of hair washing

Hair should be washed and brushed regularly to help remove flakes and scales. The frequency will vary from person to person depending on hair type. If you have oily hair and scalp, washing daily can help, while if you have dry hair and scalp, less frequent washing will prevent the scalp from drying out.

Water Temperature

Very hot water can irritate the scalp and lead to dryness. It is advised to use lukewarm water when washing hair to minimise the risk of scalp irritation.


Stress can trigger or worsen scalp conditions such as dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis; managing stress can help to reduce symptoms.
