Very dry and itchy scalp!

As seeing my question, what are some ways to relieve this. I just recently had this happen to me. I usually don't have a dry or itchy scalp! What are some good products? What are some easy home made recipes to reduce this? Lately my roots are oiler than my ends too. I'm not sure what has been going on!

Also, I haven't really been using any heat on my hair either, or products!

A good old-fashioned homemade treatment for this problem is vinegar. After you have washed your hair, take a cup of warm water and stir in three tablespoons of vinegar. Apply this to your hair, making sure the solution reaches your itchy scalp, and let is set for a few minutes. Then, rinse your hair as normal.

The vinegar will help remove residue that's left on your scalp from shampoo, conditioners and hair products. It will also cleanse your scalp and help heal any scratches you've made with your fingernails. This homemade treatment will also restore the natural pH balance to your hair and scalp. Vinegar may loosen waves and curls if you have a perm, though, so be careful.

You may also be surprised to find that you're allergic to a certain ingredient in the shampoo you're currently using. If the vinegar rinse doesn't produce results, then try switching to another brand. Look for shampoos that don't contain chemicals like formaldehyde, isopropyl alcohol and sodium lauryl sulfate, for just a few examples.

If the skin on your body is dry and scaly, then your scalp can be the same way too. To help hydrate your skin and relieve the itchy dryness, make sure you drink six to eight glasses of water each day.

Your scalp is acting up because of the climate changes. i believe it's starting to get real cold there so yeah blame it on the weather! lol I think the cold dry air outside is causing the dryness and it could possibly be your shampoo as well. Try switching to another brand, see to it that it has a very rich, thick consistency. This means it's got lots of built-in conditioners to make your hair and scalp retain moisture. Avoid those that are clear and too sudsy--they'll make fine strands look like straw--not for your hair type. Oiliness is probably your scalp's way of compensating for the harsh conditions it has been through.

I would try using a scalp-focused shampoo/conditioner- Aveda makes an amazing one, called, you guessed it, Scalp Benefits. Not drying at all.

here are some tips to overcome itchy scalp.

Essential Fatty Acids

1.Take a daily supplement of flax seed oil, salmon oil or primrose oil to relieve inflammation of the scalp.


2.After shampooing, rinse your hair with a solution of 1/4 cup of vinegar and 16 ounces of water to relieve itching.


3.Take vitamins A, B, C and E, which are essential to a healthy scalp and aid in preventing dry skin.


4.Eating kelp helps to supply the body with needed minerals such as iodine, which is essential for hair growth and healing the scalp.

Peanut Oil and Lemon

5.Mix together 8 tablespoons of peanut oil and the juice from half a lemon. Rub the mixture vigorously into your scalp and allow it to remain for 15 minutes prior to shampooing.


6.Do not eat fried foods, milk products, white sugar, white flour, nuts, seafood or chocolate. You should also consider avoiding hair care products such as hair spray, mousse and gel, as they can promote dryness, causing an itchy scalp to worsen.


7.Eat a healthy diet consisting of at least three-fourths raw food. Enjoy foods containing large amounts of vitamins, such as leafy green vegetables and whole-grain breads and pasta, to promote healthy skin and hair.
