A dry scalp is when itchy and dandruff starts to appear when you brush or comb your hair. To remedy a dry scalp, several natural solutions exist!

Above all, avoid overly aggressive shampoos and favor a mild and moisturizing shampoo based on eggs or urea that leaves the hair clean without attacking the epidermis. Anti-dandruff shampoos should be used in moderation . It is also necessary to avoid hairstyles that are too tight (bun, pigtails or ponytail), leaving the hair free is ideal .

When we have a dry scalp, we tend to use hair oils that are too greasy and therefore, to end up with the opposite problem, greasy substances are to be handled with care. Coconut oil, on the other hand, treats the dryness of the scalp and therefore gently eliminates dandruff.

You include essential oils in your hair routine, which also help combat irritation caused by a dry scalp. Tea tree clarifies and purifies the skin and lavender soothes itching.

Mix coconut oil with a few drops of essential oil of tea tree and lavender then massage your dry scalp with this mixture. Leave for 30 minutes before your shampoo.

Hair products based on panthenol, vitamins B5 and betaine are recommended for their calming effect, they create a protective and moisturizing film on the surface of the dry scalp.

What is on our plate plays an essential role for our hair and for treating a dry scalp! First of all, avoid the regular consumption of cold meats, red meats, refined flour, white sugar, etc.

In order to avoid having a dry scalp and to regain strong hair, it is necessary to consume proteins to produce quality keratin , which is the major component of hair.

Protein is mainly found in meats and fish which contain keratin precursor amino acids. Oily fish, such as salmon, sardines and mackerel, are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help moisturize and nourish dry scalp. But it is also found in eggs, cheese, quinoa, legumes, lentils , etc.

Beyond protein, a lack of B vitamins can lead to health issues related to a dry scalp such as hair loss, itchy and itchy dry scalp, and flaking.

Vitamin B is therefore also very valuable for our hair. It supports growth and strengthens hair. It is mainly found in grain products .
