White, scaly flakes and itchiness are indicators of dry scalp, a condition that can be cured through home remedies without the need for professional treatment.

Stress levels, diet, environmental factors, overuse of hair care products and medical conditions can all cause dry scalp. Moreover, dry air, air-conditioning, winter season, too much caffeine intake, fat loss, hard water and hair dying are a few commonly found causes of dry scalp. Home remedies for dry scalp can treat all these causes very effectively to protect hair and prevent irritating symptoms of the problem. Simple dry scalp, however, often requires nothing more than moisturizing.

A Few Guidelines

Organic oils provide effective home remedies for dry scalp. Heat oil and apply with fingertips on the scalp. You can also use cotton balls for better application, allowing oil to stay at least half an hour. Giving a massage to your scalp with Aveda Scalp Remedy Conditioning Concentrate really helps. It promotes blood flow to the scalp. It not only reduces dryness, but also helps improve the overall quality of your hair. Wash your hair and scalp using a gentle, nourishing shampoo.
