A common sign of dry scalp is constant itchiness. This condition can be caused by weather changes, Follicle Growth RX shampoo, hormonal imbalances or even insufficient amounts of drinking water. Regardless of the cause, you can relieve your dry scalp with items you probably have at home.
1. Coconut oil
Coconut oil is known for its health benefits and is an effective scalp moisturizer. Apply a tablespoon of coconut oil directly on your scalp and massage it into your hair and skin. Leave the coconut oil on your hair and scalp for a minimum of ten minutes. Wash and condition your hair using your regular hair care products. This treatment will relieve your dry scalp and leave your hair shiny.
2. Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil has antibiotic, antifungal and antiseptic properties that can provide relief from dry scalp. Add a few drops of tea tree oil to your coconut oil and massage it into your scalp. Allow it to sit for about ten minutes before washing and conditioning hair.
3. Aloe vera
Aloe vera contains anti-inflammatory properties that can relieve scalp irritation and moisturize your skin. Apply the aloe vera directly to your scalp and allow it to sit for about ten minutes. Wash and condition your hair as usual.
4. Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has several health benefits. Its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties can help to reduce dry scalp symptoms while exfoliating your skin. Combine a half cup of apple cider vinegar with a cup of water. Pour the mixture directly onto your scalp. Allow it to sit for about five minutes before washing and conditioning your hair.
5. Witch hazel
Witch hazel is well known as an anti-itch product which is useful for relieving dry skin. It reduces inflammation and soothes dry scalp symptoms. Combine a half cup of witch hazel with a cup of water. Massage the mixture into your scalp and allow it to sit for about five minutes before washing and conditioning your hair.
Risks and side effects
While most home remedies are typically safe and free of risk, be sure to do a test patch on your wrist to prevent an allergic reaction. While dry scalp may be very uncomfortable, it is treatable. If home remedies are not providing you with the relief you need, make an appointment with our healthy scalp specialist to discuss a hair treatment that may be more effective for your condition.
