Let’s get to the root of the problem.

Nobody likes talking about it, but dry scalps can cause you serious distress. It’s embarrassing, frustrating and can make you feel gross, but luckily, you don’t have to suffer if you arm yourself with the right products.

There are plenty of brilliant specialist products out there that get to the root of the problem straight away, meaning you can finally relax and stop worrying about it.

We spoke to Philip Kingsley Trichologist (a scalp specialist, to you and I), Anabel Kingsley, to find out her top tips and products for keeping your scalp healthy this winter.

Why do our scalps seem to suffer more in the winter months?

You might find that towards the end of the year, your scalp becomes unbearable. Anabel puts this down to our desire for delicious treats during the festive season.

She explains, “Heavier, wintery foods like cream and cheese, as well as celebratory drinks, like champagne, can trigger dandruff in those who are prone to it.”

Why does everything we love want to hurt us?

To get great hair, one must put the work into scalp health. Anabel notes, “Hair grows its best from a healthy scalp – so anything you do to improve the condition of your scalp will benefit your hair.”

Packing your beauty cupboard full of scalp saviours should help you stave off the dreaded dandruff this year. Here are our favourites:
