Could my itchy scalp,be due to menopause? I am gluten free, allergic to propylene glycol so I use very organic, non invasive products. My scalp itches, I scratch,. Have tried everything on the market plus home remedies. I am at a loss and sad.

Hi Anon and welcome to EmpowHER.

Yes, your itchy scalp could very well be related to menopause. The same hormones that cause so many body changes during menopause can also cause dry skin problems, leaving your scalp dry and therefore itchy. 

One thing you can do, which you may not have tried, is changing your diet. There are some great tips in this article written for the EmpowHER community, Your Skin: How to Keep that Healthy Glow.

Hope that helps, and hope some other women in the community who've been dealing with this will also weigh in.
