No more dry or itchy scalp

With the change of season or at times of stress, many people suffer from rashes or other scalp conditions that can cause itchiness and dandruff.

The problem is that we often don’t know any effective remedies to treat these conditions and we apply treatment that is probably not a long term solution (for example; anti-dandruff shampoo).

Here is a list of the main causes and remedies to help you to solve the problem naturally.

Causes:

– Weather.
– Unhealthy diet.
– Air conditioning.
– Allergies.
– Shampoos.
– Hairdressing products.
– Stress.

Remedies

1. Stop using hair products that contain strong chemical ingredients until the scalp condition is cured. The use of pH balanced shampoos is recommended, or those made with organic products.

2. Massage your head with specific moisturizing products that don’t damage the skin in order to relieve scalp irritation, dryness and itchiness.

3. Aloe Vera is a hair conditioner and it also has moisturizing and anti-fungal properties that relieve dryness.

4. Olive oil: this is excellent for moisturizing skin and ideal for relieving an itchy scalp. Make a hair mask with olive oil and honey, and your hair will recover its natural shine and your scalp will be completely moisturized. Mix the ingredients and massage the mixture into your hair evenly, cover your head with a shower cap for 10-15 minutes and then wash off thoroughly.
