recently I having dry scalp due to hot water shower. I would like to explain my condition… First my hair turn dry brittle and breakage during my shower time that time I didn’t know this was because of hot showers… After that I go shaved my head… And then only I noticed dry flakes and itching… Now my hair growth also is not healthy as before doctor… My hair grows like fuzz and I feel like not thick as well… Will this cure and turn to normal… Will my scalp get back to normal condition? And the main question is will hot showers cause hair loss or hair thinning? Is this because hot showers damaged my scalp barrier?
