If you suffer with a sensitive scalp, it is quite likely that cold conditions exacerbate it. It’s not actually the cold per se, but central heating, keeping your head covered and drinking less water that tips your scalp over the edge by drying it out. And, it is so frustrating when your pharmacist recommends horrible smelling tar or zinc shampoos. Aesop Sage Scalp Cleansing Shampoo is a great alternative to traditional remedies – it cleanses, calms and hydrates the scalp without irritating the sensitive skin. You can use Sage & Cedar Scalp Treatment prior to shampooing that has a soothing dose of botanicals to treat the condition. Up your intake of fluids – it’s difficult downing glasses of cold water on chilly days, but try hot water with a slice of lemon instead which is much more welcome!
