Of all the beauty woes we're struggling with, scalp issues are certainly among the least glamorous.

And these somewhat embarrassing issues are not only problematic in the dry, winter months, but through sweaty summer days, too.

There’s a slew of solutions to soothe itchy dryness, greasy product build-up, and the flaking and irritation that tend to follow. To prove it, we tapped Stephen D. Pullan, a trichologist at the Philip Kingsley Clinic, to give us the lowdown on exactly how to alleviate these uncomfortable issues.
Rebalancing your hair's pH is the first step in fixing a dry scalp and this apple cider vinegar scrub will do just that. Bonus: Not only does it help your scalp retain moisture and buff away dead skin cells, it also won't strip color if you just got new highlights last week.
