Itchy flaky scalp? Try this simple home remedy
Is an itchy flaky scalp getting you down? If you’ll give me a couple of minutes of your time, I’ll show you how a simple and little-known herbal remedy can get rid of your itchy, flaky scalp once and for all.
An itchy flaky scalp can be caused by a number of things, but it often has to do with lifestyle, nutrition, an infection, or even an allergic reaction to products you normally put on your hair. You see, most of the products available on the market these days are so loaded with chemicals that, in some cases, they actually do more harm than good. Many anti-dandruff shampoos contain harsh chemicals such as Sodium Laureth Sulphate (the same ingredient used in engine degreasers), Propylene Glycol (found in antifreeze), and Silicone, which is often found in leading brand conditioners and used to add an artificial shine to your hair. hatred.
Apple cider vinegar is a great little home remedy that has been used for many, many years to get rid of itchy flaky scalps and dandruff.
Try the following recipe:
Wash hair with a mild, pH-balanced shampoo. There is no need to use an anti-dandruff shampoo because apple cider vinegar will gradually disperse and get rid of dandruff and itchy flaky scalp problem.
Mix the apple cider vinegar with a little warm water (2 parts vinegar to 1 part water). By adding a few drops of essential oils like lavender or rosemary, it will help to further cleanse your scalp and add a bit of fragrance to your hair. (Always remember to test patch oils for allergies, and always see your doctor if you’re pregnant.)
Pour the mixture directly onto clean hair, or alternatively, put it in a bottle and spray onto the scalp. Massage it in and let the mixture dry on your hair. No need to rinse it (unless the smell bothers you).
For more persistent dandruff and itchy flaky scalp, you can try a stronger mixture of vinegar and water, as a one to one ratio. You could even try using the vinegar undiluted and applying it directly to your scalp. Leave it on for about 15 minutes, and then wash the cider out with a mild, pH-balanced shampoo.
You will get the best results if you use raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar to treat dandruff. If you don’t have apple cider vinegar, you can also use lemon juice.
Essential oils can be used to soothe itchiness. Mixing lavender, German chamomile, and eucalyptus oils with water (4 parts water to 1 part oil) and applying it locally to the affected areas will help relieve an itchy flaky scalp.
