two weeks ago I noticed that my scalp was pink and I heard that this is a sign that your hair is thinning. I have no severe itching or flakes. People always tell me that I shouldn’t have to worry about it because I have a full set of hair, but I want to get professional advice to make sure. I did change my shampoo about the same time. Could the reason be that my shampoo is irritating my scalp or could I be thinning?
I don’t really know what you are seeing. If you are looking at your scalp after a hot shower, the scalp may be pink in color. If you have an allergic reaction to the shampoo, it could cause a pink color in a white skinned person. Best to have a doctor look at your ‘pink’ scalp as it may be something there that is wrong. This is not a sign of balding, though.
