My head will itch and it seems like I get hotter and skin more irritated if I don't.

    So is your hair shiny or dull? Do you style it? Do you have long or thick hair? Sorry for all the questions. Just hard to wrap my mind around this for myself.
    My hair is shiny and thick, about 8" long right now (pretty long for a guy). Normally I get it cut to about 2", but it's been a while since my last haircut.
