Can a Burning Scalp Lead to Hair Loss?

  • 4 min. read

Burning Scalp syndrome or Trichodynia is a condition when you constantly feel a burning sensation on your scalp. The scalp becomes extremely sensitive and people experience pain even while combing the hair. This condition is more common in females due to the reason that they have long hair as opposed to males.

There’s no conclusive study to determine the cause of trichodynia. Some say stress is the main culprit behind it. Also, due to the fact that three times more women are affected by it than men, it is also referred to as the ponytail syndrome. Women tying their hair up in tight ponytails increase the scalp sensitivity leading to trichodynia.

Symptoms of burning scalp syndrome

Almost everyone experiences somewhat itchiness on a dirty scalp, but when it gets more frequent than that, it might be a problem. Constant discomfort on the scalp, a prickling pain and burning are the initial signs.

The pain only elevates when you brush out or try to style your hair. If not treated immediately, your scalp starts to feel tingly and tender all the time. Your head might also feel hot throughout the day. In some cases, people have also experienced some hair fall. So, don’t ignore these initial symptoms as trichodynia only gets worse from there.

Since the main cause for trichodynia hasn’t been determined yet completely, it’s important that you look out for these signs.

How to treat trichodynia?

  • Scalp check-up- If you’ve started to experience a burning scalp, you should get it checked out. Since this is where your hair follicles lie, the health of your scalp is crucial. I’d recommend you visit the Advanced Hair Studio. They offer an Advanced Hair Check where they provide a thorough consultation. They are one of the best hair loss clinics in Dubai with a lot of expertise, so do check them out.

  • Hair products- Sometimes a burning itchy scalp might just be a reaction to your new shampoo or conditioner. Some people have sensitive scalps and some shampoos with a lot of chemicals in them are meant for that. So, pay attention, if your conditions worsen after using a particular product, just toss it out.

  • Good food- Some people experience scalp sensitivity due to their lifestyle. If your diet has been consisting of a lot of artificial ingredients, it’s time for a change. Including healthy fats such as flaxseed oil, grass-fed butter in your diet has been known to soothe your scalp.

  • Hair loss treatment- In some cases where this condition has been caused due to head lice, hormonal disbalance or scalp sensitivity, it’s common to experience some hair fall. Visit a place that offers hair loss treatments in Dubai such as Advanced Hair Studio to combat the hair fall. Advanced Laser Therapy is a great way to restore your lost hair.


If you are going through any scalp problem or hair loss issue, then it's extremely important to first identify the problem. Get your consultation booked with Advanced Hair Studio in order to know the root of the problem so that you can get a suitable hair loss treatment.

It took me 1 Year to decide whether I wanted to go through with the hair restoration procedure using a Natural Looking Hair piece. I did a lot of research and consulted with many people who had done the procedure.

I was convinced to go ahead due to the information session / in-depth knowledge and the excellent customer service skills of Sanjay- the manager.

I did the procedure 1 month ago and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever. Advanced Hair Studio provides the best quality for the Hair Pieces. The staff takes the time to understand what you are looking for as a customer. They style your hair based on your facial structure and I must truly admit that their stylists are pure Artists! My favourite stylist is Mohamad from Lebanon. He does magic with his hands and I am always thrilled with the new styles/ suggestions he provides.

I must admit that AHS is on the more expensive side if you were to consider the other competitors in Dubai. However, it is all worth every penny spent! You will not regret it.

Do not over think it. Just go ahead an do the procedure. You will evolve into a whole new person! Believe me! :-)

I started losing my hair in my mid-twenties and in spite of trying all sorts of treatments it gradually got worse and worse. By my late twenties I started cutting my hair short. Whenever I tried to grow it, it used to look a mess and was impossible to style because of my receding and thinning. I was looking at doing a hair transplant for a while, but I kept delaying it in hope that there was some alternative.

When I was in my mid-thirties I first came across AHS. I was a bit skeptical but I thought I’d find out what they could do. I was expecting a sales pitch but what I learned about hair loss and hair restoration from them was presented in a straightforward and logical way, without lots of medical terminology. They take time to explain the root cause of the problem and explore all the different treatments.

I decided to go ahead with the treatment and as it turns out, having AHS fix my hair was one of the best decisions I ever made. I still cannot believe how good my results are. I just wish I’d done it 10 years earlier rather than wasting so much time (and hair!). I would urge anyone who is thinking of doing something to check them out.
