Dry weather. Too much heat while styling your hair. Overloading on products to keep your hair style under control. Any and all of those factors can wreak havoc on your scalp.

To combat the problem, try this trick: Add around a teaspoon of sugar to your shampoo and as you wash your scalp the sugar acts as a natural exfoliant that whisks away flakes. 

The O Report tested this solution and it worked well without stripping away our hair color.
