Itchy scalp and hair loss can be embarrassing, uncomfortable and frustrating. Most times, it is not easy to determine the cause for itching. But hair loss is usually temporary and is due to itching. Once you've identified and begin to treat the 'root' of the problem, your hair should begin to grow normally again.
Itchy Scalp generally accompanies dandruff, which can in turn lead to hair loss. Dandruff may even effect the skin on scalp, which shows up in the form of pimples, allergy and scalp irritation, often resulting in visible flakes on the hair. Dandruff is not the actual cause of hair loss, but dandruff accompanied by itching and scratching is the real cause.
The scratching could cause some hair to fall out. Dandruff is often seen in people who usually travel a lot and develops because of the change in temperature, humidity, dirt and seasons.
