Watching your hair go down the drain -- literally? Find out what's normal, what's not, and what you can do about it
If you suffer from dandruff, pick up a dandruff shampoo, but if the itching and redness get serious, head to a dermatologist or trichologist for a more potent solution. In the meantime, celeb stylist Diane C. Bailey recommends regular scalp massages to increase blood flow to the scalp. "This helps nutrients travel to follicle sites where hair cells are reproduced." Bailey recommends choosing a hair oil that contains tea tree, (like Wen Tea Tree Oil, $20) baobab, peppermint, rosemary, or ylang-ylang oils, all of which stimulate and soothe the scalp. Massage all over your scalp with the pads of your fingers for three minutes, then shampoo out.
