All of us have itchy scalp from time to time, it happens to the best of us. But some of us go through a major struggle with trying to keep our hair moisturized throughout the day, and usually, it ends up in very uncomfortable situations.
But no more ladies, you can stop itchy scalps fast with these quick home remedies. Your hair will feel as good as new, and your scalp will LOVE you for it!
Tea Tree Oil
I can tell you from personal experience as well as scientific research, tea tree oil* is one of the BEST solutions to an itchy scalp. I had such an itchy scalp that when I looked at my scalp in the mirror, I saw cuts and my scalp was almost white.
But after a week of daily morning and night application, my scalp felt like a new woman! Tea tree oil is an noninflammatory, anti fungal, treats dandruff, and antibacterial oil naturally, and one of these three things is usually the cause of your scalp itching.
Also, if you have any abrasions near the scalp or on your scalp, tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic. You can use tea tree oil* in various ways:
Add it to your shampoo or conditioner on wash day.
Scalp massage every day for an intense affect
Add it with some coconut, vegetable, or Aloe Vera oil and apply to scalp with scalp applicator
Apple Cider Vinegar
Using apple cider vinegar* is a faster approach, in my opinion, for an itchy scalp, but apple cider vinegar has a few cons. The smell has always bothered people, but you can always cover that up with a nice leave-in conditioner*. But also, apple cider vinegar is very thin, and doesn’t take a scalp applicator as well.
But the vinegar levels out pH, which can really help your scalps dry patches. It also has very high anti-inflammation properties. You can use it apple cider vinegar in a few ways:
The best way is while the hair is wet, maybe wash day, and leave a set in for 15-20 minutes
While the hair is dry, mix apple cider vinegar* with a cup of water and spray on hair
Jojoba Oil* is the liquid that comes from Simmondsia Chinensis plant and has the same make up of sebum, which is our natural hair oil created by the sebaceous glands that helps our hair grow. Jojoba Oil* was meant to be used for dry skin or scalp.
It is a natural healer and moisturizer which can help your scalp rejuvenate your scalp in its brittle state. You can use this oil for not only your dry scalp but for split ends, tangles, a hair shiner, a conditioner, a cleanser, or to dissolve excess sebum build up in your hair. Jojoba Oil for itchy scalp is meant to be used sparingly and can be used in a few ways:
Massage a FEW drops into the scalp each day
Mix into a deep conditioning* mask
Coat hair in Jojoba and wrap a hot towel around hair for about 15 minutes, then rinse out.
