Dry Scalp Remedies
Dry scalp should not be mistaken for dandruff, which is caused by malassezia (yeasty fungus) and too much sebum (oil) production. Dry scalp is caused by the lack/loss of moisture, which can be linked to poor diet, harsh water, strong shampoos and soaps, and extremely cold weather exposure.
A dry scalp is very noticeable, since the dry, white flakes will fall out of the hair very easily. It will also become itchy during the winter months, which will irritate the skin and make the dry scalp symptoms worsen.
Home Remedy Treatment
- Virgin Olive Oil (massage into scalp)
- Yogurt and Honey Masks
- Apple Cider Vinegar (can help restore the pH levels)
- Jojoba Oil (massage into scalp) with Brown Sugar
- Tea Tree Oil
- Coconut Oil and Grapefruit Juice
- Coconut Milk and Honey
- Lemon Juice and Honey
- Lavender and Rose Water
Tar shampoos can be utilized for psoriasis and dandruff. It is vital that you wash your hair on a regular basis, because poor hygiene can definitely be linked to dry scalp and dandruff.
