Dry scalp and hair can cause your hair to look lifeless, frizzy, dull, and easily break and fall out. Dry scalp can even lead to hair loss, if this condition is left untreated.
Here are remedies you can use:
DIY Hair Masks is an oil treatment for your scalp will help to deeply moisturize your scalp and lock-in that natural moisture balance.
Using coconut oil as a highly effective intense natural conditioner for the hair and scalp. Rub directly onto dry scalp and hair, put a shower cap on and leave for a minimum of 45 minutes for a deep moisture mask.
Another home remedy involves mixing equal parts apple cider vinegar with water, spraying the solution onto the scalp, and waiting at least 15 minutes before rinsing.
One other home remedy is a Homemade Coconut oil and Honey Hair Mask:
1 tbsp. Organic Coconut Oil
1 tbsp. Organic Raw Honey
Shower Cap (optional)
Mix the ingredients together and as an extra step to help your hair follicles open up, slightly heat the mixture up on a stove top in a small sauce pan. Long or extra damaged hair? Just add a bit more of these ingredients.
Regardless of the mask you choose, try keeping with a mask once a week until you’ve noticed an improvement–and you will!
For dandruff: Use Aspirin contains the same active ingredient (salicylic acid) as many medicated dandruff shampoos. Keep flaking in check by crushing two aspirins to a fine powder and adding it to the normal amount of shampoo you use each time you wash your hair. Leave the mixture on your hair for 1-2 minutes, then rinse well and wash again with plain shampoo.
Lemon Juice. Just massage 2 tablespoons lemon juice into your scalp and rinse with water. Then stir 1 teaspoon lemon juice into 1 cup water and rinse your hair with it. Repeat this daily until your dandruff disappears. Lemon’s acidity helps balance the pH of your scalp, which helps keeps dandruff at bay.
Baking Soda. Wet your hair and then rub a handful of baking soda vigorously into your scalp. Skip the shampoo and go right to rinsing. Baking soda reduces overactive fungi that can cause dandruff. Your hair may get dried out at first, but after a few weeks your scalp will start producing natural oils, leaving your hair softer and free of flakes
Table Salt. The abrasiveness of ordinary table salt works great for scrubbing out dandruff flakes before you shampoo. Grab a saltshaker and shake some salt onto your dry scalp. Then work it through your hair, giving your scalp a massage. You’ll find you’ve worked out the dry, flaky skin and are ready for a shampoo.
