Itchy and dry scalp: I assume you think it will be this way due to the elevation? In general only wash your hair every other day, don't scrub your scalp too much with the shampoo, use a shampoo that has 'hydrating' on the label, and most importantly...Drink lots and lots of water. It really shouldn't be a problem...Enjoy colorado!
