Why do I have a tinglling sensation on the crown of my head

Why do I have a tinglling sensation on the crown of my head ? It feels like pins and needles
and I have had it for three or four days.
This is an indication that certain sensory nerves in your scalp are irritated or inflammed (e.g. neuritis). In many cases, this turns out to be a result of a hypersensitivity (e.g. allergy) to a shampoo, conditioner or coloring agent. If you have started anything new in the past few weeks to months, switch back to something more familiar, avoid hot water, and consider taking an antihistamine to suppress irritation.
