Scabs On Scalp – Everything You Need To Know – Why You Have Them and How Get Rid of Them

March 15, 2021

I truly believe that only somebody that has experienced this could write about scabs on your scalp but more importantly somebody that had them and found a way to get rid of them without them coming back for over 20 years.

What Causes Scabs On Scalp and Your Head?

There are actually about 3 main reasons why you get these. Here they are.

  1. Fungus related to Dandruff, Seborrheic Dermatitis, Seborrhea, Psoriasis. The main fungus culprit in these is malassezia but there are others. There is also bacteria as well as yeast that can cause the sores that will ultimately cause the scabs that you are dealing with. If you have these then you will probably complain that these don’t want to go away very easily. You have probably tried the over the country tar and dandruff shampoos that will give you a little help but no where near solved your problem.
  2. Burns from many different things including chemicals and bleaches that are used during hair treatments and procedures such as coloring, bleach, permanents, relaxers and more.
  3. There are some ski disorders such as cancer that can also cause these. However, these are much more rare. It is always best to get it checked out.

How Do You Get Rid Of Scalp Scabs Especially Those That Don’t Want To Heal Or Go Away?

Ah, this is where I come in. You see for many years I suffered from this. The scabs would occur anywhere on my head, in my eyebrows and yes even in outter ear. These were itchy and some were tiny and small some were large. I had seen several doctors and they said they were dandruff scabs or from seborrheic dermatitis. They told me I was allergic to my oils. They put me on steroids and gave me stronger shampoos like ketaconazale at higher strength. But while these did help some within a bit they were right back on head again. Here is the good news. It got me going and really researching.

1st of all – if you have a chemical or bleach burn make sure to use the emu oil as that is not only amazing for healing the scalp it is vital for prevention of scarring. The scars can prevent normal function of the hair follicle which could mean hair loss.

For most of us the culprit is fungus, bacteria and yeast and they could be separately or all together. For me it was mainly fungus. But using a fungus shampoo will not – WILL NOT – get you long term results. The fungus is there because you have damaged the the outter skin on the scalp that protects you scalp from these fungus and bacteria. This lipid barrier has to be restored. Also the fungus and bacteria must be knocked back but that will only happen when the hair follicle is open and unclogged. We do not know of any over the counter shampoos that even try to do this. Finally the ph of the hair products must be changed. These are probably one of the primary culprits behind destroying the protective barrier o the scalp. Lower ph shampoos and hair products must be used.

I tell you all of this to tell you that 20 years later I am not dealing with scabs on my head. I have used the Zincplex Shampoo and Conditioner and also the emu oil for hair. However, now since I don’t have scabs I only use Zincplex occasionally to keep my hair health in tact. My hair is as healthy as it has ever been and remember that this is 25 years later.
