Few things are as annoying and frustrating to deal with than having an itchy, dry scalp. Aside from simply causing discomfort and soreness, having a dry scalp can also cause dandruff and contribute to hair loss. Often, having a dry scalp is an immediate reaction to some sort of change in environment, such as washing your hair too much or a change in the weather. These are things you can change easily, but having a lasting itchy, dry scalp may need some extra attention and care.
If your dry scalp has lasted even after you’ve changed your hair washing habits or if there hasn’t been any major changes in the weather, it may be a good idea to consult a doctor to make sure you don’t have any larger health issues that your dry scalp could be trying to tell you about. Some common health issues related to dry scalp are eczema, atopic dermatitis, head lice, psoriasis, allergies, diabetes, or even shingles. However, here are a couple of home remedies that will soothe and treat your itchy, dry scalp without using harsh chemicals that may damage your hair.
LOOK AT YOUR LIFESTYLE
The anti-inflammatory properties in aloe vera make it a great, natural way to combat an itchy, dry scalp from home. Applying it to your scalp can help moisturize your skin and treat any inflammation that’s causing itchiness or dandruff. To create an aloe gel yourself, simply cut an aloe leaf lengthwise and strip the gel inside the plant into a bowl. Put the chunks of aloe in a blender until it creates a smooth serum that you can let sit on your scalp for 20 minutes prior to washing.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Similar to tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar has the ability to treat your dry, itchy scalp with its antibacterial properties. To get the most from apple cider vinegar, dilute a couple of tablespoons into some warm water and use it as a rinse after your regular shampooing to treat your scalp. You can find apple cider vinegar in most grocery stores for just a few dollars, and its health benefits are known to tackle a great number of issues from stomach issues to hair problems.
