Default Itching scalp = Growing Hair?

Started taking hair vits a month ago. Scalp is itching like crazy. It is embarrassing, especially if I am in a meeting.

The itch is not due to dry scalp because I have an oily scalp and there is no dandruff on my scalp. So, do you think that an itching scalp is a sign of my hair growing?

Default Re: Itching scalp = Growing Hair?

Well, I did a quick search and came across this site that sells hair growth products and provides hair info, and this was the answer to one of the questions asked:

2. "After 2 weeks, my scalp is tight and itchy. What causes this?"
__This feeling is sometimes felt due to an increase in circulation caused by the natural exfoliation process. This may happen again as built up layers of dead skin and deposits are loosened and rinsed away. For some, the tingly feeling is caused by hair growing out of the once dormant hair follicles that have now been rejuvenated.

So yeah, if what you have isn't dandruff or a dry scalp, then it very well could be a sign of growth.

OK. That makes sense. I take the itching to be a good sign.

I get the "creepy crawlies" feeling in my scalp when I'm having a growth spurt.

Sometimes I get these really tender parts, that hurt when I touch them...

I don't tie my hair too tight, or get it braided too tight, they just pop up on occassion.

What is that?

I was wondering the same thing. I have been taking NIOXIN recharging for about three weeks, and my hair is itching also...anyone else experience itching from NIOXIN or any other hair growth vitamins.

I've never gotten itchy scalp. but i have gotten sore scalp before, and thats when i am faithful to my hair vites so i am sure a sore tender scalp is a sign of a growth spurt...

Hmmm... Interesting question? I am experiencing terrible itching in my nape. No dandruff. I've scheduled an appointment with the dermatologist tomorrow at lunch to have him look at it. I'll post what he says.

This is good information, because I too have the tender heads spots and itchy scalp despite the scalp not being dry and wondered why this seems to happen.

I have the creepy crawly feeling as we speak or as I type and I just washed and deep conditioned my hair last night. I always get creepy crawly feelings in my scalp but I don't know....I wash my hair every 3 days and since joining this site. I have not seen a dandruff in a year...so I hope it means my hair is growing

I take Nioxin and my scalp usually gets that creepy feeling almost like there is a little ant up there, when I rub it with my fingertips it doesn't go away. I wash once a week, so I think my hair stays fairly clean.

I hope it's a growth spurt. Nioxin has contributed to my hair growth immensely.

I usually do a scalp massage when I feel this way and that seems to help.

Lastly, I take 2 Nioxin tablets per day. This really boosts my growth rate, one a day did NOTHING, nada! Diddley-squat.

Thanks Lana.. I just increased my Nioxin to two tablets a day today. but the creepy crawlers and the itching just started like two days ago.. I hope to see a growth increase also since I have only taken the Nioxin three weeks.
