If you have an itchy, dry scalp, it can be a regular inconvenience to you, and it can be disturbing in society too. Also worse than this, if you continue on scratching your scalp for too much time, it could cause hair loss and this could leave you with bald patches. Here are simple natural remedies to treat dry scalp.
1. Lemon juice
Lemon juice has bactericidal characteristics that will combat the itchiness of a dry scalp and it is also a great remedy for dandruff too. You should use lemon juice on your scalp, or you could combine it with some of the other moisturising constituents we wii mention here. Remember to fully wash lemon juice off of your hair, though, as it can have a bleaching result when shown to the sun.
2. Baking soda
Baking soda is an excellent ingredient to use with one of the hydrating components you include in hair masks (such as mayonnaise, bananas, avocados…etc). it will exfoliate the scalp and shed all the dead and flaky skin and stop dandruff too. Try applying olive oil to your scalp and later apply a paste of water and baking soda and leave it on for around fifteen minutes.
There is a wide range of herbs that constitute a very helpful remedy for a dry scalp. Sage, for instance, has the capability to remove the buildup of dead skin from the scalp and to prevent drying. Steep a bit of fresh sage leaves in a cup of boiling water. Let it cool down, and later rub it on the scalp, when you are already done with shampoing your hair.
