Summer is all about rocking protective styles and while that can come with day to day ease, it can also come with a scalp that is more prone to itch, flakiness and dryness.

Because the hair can go untouched, or unwashed, for longer periods of time, it’s important to remember to keep up with the pampering of the scalp, and keep these uncomfortable scalp conditions at bay.

And even if you don’t have a plan to rock any protective styles this summer, incorporating a great scalp treatment into your regimen definitely won’t hurt!

So wait no longer – here are the best treatments to add to your arsenal!
