How to Treat Dry Scalp Part 3

Natural oils are also a great way to help with dry scalp. There are three oils that are easily available and work wonders on the scalp.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil contains anti-fungal properties that kill bacteria causing dryness and white flakes. Tea Tree Oil soothes the scalp when added to a shampoo or conditioner.

Application

  • Mix 6 drops of tea tree oil in your shampoo or conditioner.
  • Use this every time you wash your hair
  • If you can find a Tea Tree based shampoo, you will get the same results.

 

Coconut Oil

Oiling your scalp is the best way to retain moisture and treat scalp dryness. Oiling your scalp encourages the natural production of oil, enhances blood circulation to hair follicles and scalp, and lastly it locks in moisture.

Application

  • Use your finger tips or a cotton ball to apply Coconut Oil to your scalp and the rest of your hair.
  • Gently massage your scalp to promote blood circulation.
  • Leave in for a minimum of 1 hour or overnight.
  • Shampoo your hair as usual.
  • Repeat 2 – 3 times a week. If you can’t once a week is fine, but the results will take longer.

 

Avocado Oil

Avocados are rich in minerals and vitamins that can help with dry scalp. It also makes hair soft, glossy and moisturized. Avocado oil can be found in the grocery store.

Application

  • Use your finger tips or a cotton ball to apply Avocado Oil to your scalp and the rest of your hair.
  • Gently massage your scalp to promote blood circulation.
  • Leave in for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • Wash your hair with shampoo as usual.

 

Out of the three oils, Avocado Oil is my favourite especially during the cold winter months. I just keep reaching for it, the other two are really good, but Avocado Oil is my favourite.
