Best Home Treatments for Dry Scalp
At Flaunt Salon in downtown Denver, we all love Colorado. We are proud of our state and all that it embodies. It is such a fun place to live, with so much to do. The skiing, the parks, the hiking, the museums, the art galleries, the restaurants—and we could go on and on. But everywhere has its positives and negatives, and Denver is not immune to this reality. The dry climate can really take its toll on your skin and your scalp. If you have white flakes in your hair, check out our previous blog to determine whether you’re dealing with dandruff or dry scalp. For a really quality shampoo and blow dry, schedule your appointment with one of our experienced stylists today!
Once you’ve determined that you are, indeed, battling dry scalp, you can apply one of the following home remedies to get rid of those nasty, unsightly flakes.
- Natural Oils. Apply coconut oil, jojoba oil, or olive oil to your scalp and let sit for 20 minutes while you soak in a hot bath before you shampoo and condition. For a deeper treatment, leave in overnight and wash out in the morning.
- Apple Cider Vinegar. Use a solution of 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar and 3 cups of water. Using a spray bottle, saturate hair and cover with a plastic cap. Let sit for 20 minutes before washing and conditioning.
- Essential Oils. Peppermint oil helps balance pH levels and relieves itchiness. Tea Tree oil, when used with a carrier oil, is great for your scalp. It is anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial.
