Dry Scalp: Try these 2 tested remedies to get rid of itchiness/flakiness in the hair

Dandruff is a common skin condition that causes dry white or dry grey flakes of dead skin to appear on the scalp/hair.

Prone to dry scalp or dandruff? These fast remedies get rid of them in no time…

Dry Scalp is common, it comes in form of loose, white, powdery flakes from the scalp.

It happens when the natural glands that produce natural oil for the scalp is dehydrated hence it's commonly as a result of lifestyle habits.

Dandruff and dry scalp have similar characteristics but dry scalp is less serious compared to dandruff though they both come embarrassing.


There are tried and tested remedies that work to cure them.

1. Using Natural Oils (Jojoba, Coconut, Castor etc)

To get rid of dry scalp fast, it is wise to add natural oils into your hair care regimen.  Olive and coconut oil has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties and they also absorb easily into the scalp. Jojoba Oil most closely resembles sebum or the oily secretion of the sebaceous glands that acts as a lubricant for the hair and skin and provides some protection against bacteria.

So use Jojoba oil, coconut oil, olive oil, peppermint and Castor oil often to tackle dry scalp.


2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar rinses are great for dry scalp as well.

Mix a solution of 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar to 3 cups of water, pour into a spray bottle, spray this mix generously into the hair, cover with a plastic cap, and let sit for 20-30 minutes.

This mix rinses out clean, removes product buildup, and also adds shine and restores the hair's pH to its normal state.
