Default Is it normal for scalp to be itchy after swimming

I have been swimming for years. But until several months ago, I started getting an itchy scalp after swimming. Is it normal? And what is causing it, is it the chlorine, or does it mean the water is unclean? I don't itch on any other body part.

My name is Adrian, I am 13 years old, dunno if I am gay or str8 (I am probably more of straight). I am a geek, and I am proud of it. I love computers, and all kinds of nerdy technology.

Well it's hard to say. Could be the chlorine. Do you use any new hair products?

I've had that before and I'm sure it was the chemicals they put in the water. I found that using an anti dandruff shampoo when I shower after swimming helped. It annoyed my mum because I was always last dressed after swimming but at least my head didn't itch.

the chemicals and the chlorine they use can dry out your skin and your scalp which will make it itch. Try using some moisturizing conditioner in your hair and see if that helps.

Nope. I just use the regular shampoo that the pool showers provide for free. At home I just use regular shampoo.

I sometimes get it all over. I have to be as thorough as possible when I shower after swimming. So I know how u feel.
Mine is just a sensitivity to the chlorine.
Just try to wash it all off

You can also wear one of those skil caps swimmers wear so the hair on your head doesn’t get wet.

Would using conditioner help? I don't use conditioner usually.

I think it's because of chlorine they add in the swimming pool. I always get shower after getting out from swimming pool.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure as I've never had any experiences of the sort.

It sounds like the whatever is in the water is drying out your hair. Maybe the chemicals used to clean the pool have changed. Or maybe your hair is more dry than it used to be. Maybe try showering and conditioning your hair after you swim?

One of my swimmer friends got it....It got pretty bad that he had to shave his hair to keep the itching at bay.....It was sad to see his cute longish blond hair gone.
