Today, I’m not going to talk about a lot of natural remedies for dandruff and itchy scalp, I’m only going to talk about the ones I have tried myself and the ones that gave me the most amazing results.
I know that in many of my previous posts, I talked about many remedies for different scalp aliments, well, in this post; I’m only going to talk about the most important ones, in other words, the ones I have used myself and the ones that gave me the best results.
Indeed, there are so many natural remedies you can use for dandruff and itchy scalp, unfortunately, most of them are very weak and will not give you satisfactory results, they will just improve your condition for some few hours, and then, you will be left with the same problem, in fact, sometimes even worse!
So, here are, from my experience, the best natural remedies for dandruff and itchy scalp:
- The first one is tea tree oil.
Whenever you read a post in this website related to itchy scalp or just dandruff, you will find me talking about tea tree oil, in fact, I cannot write a post about helping people with their scalps issues without talking about this amazing essential oil, I just love it and I think that it’s one of the best natural remedies you can use if you are suffering from dandruff and itchy scalp.
To understand why tea tree oil is amazing for this condition, you need to understand your problem first:
You have dandruff and itchy scalp because you have scalp funguses, in other words, tiny creatures munching on your skin and producing toxins which causes your scalp to become highly irritated and inflamed, sensitive.
These inflammations are manifested as an itchy sensation all over your scalp, they are terrible and they will make you feel horrible all day long!
This is where tea tree oil is fantastic, it contains very powerful antifungal properties, in other words, it’s going to get rid of funguses all over your scalp, however, the bad thing about tea tree oil is that it’s also very powerful, in other words, if you use it alone, you will cause your scalp more damages than good!
So, here is how to use tea tree oil the right way for dandruff and itchy scalp:
Every day, I want you to mix two teaspoons of olive oil with four drops of tea tree oil, and simply massage your scalp with this amazing oil mixture, it’s fantastic and it will get rid of your itchy sensation and also dandruff very quickly.
- The second one is lavender oil.
Lavender oil also contains very powerful antibacterial and most importantly antifungal properties, which is the reason why I highly recommend that you use it, especially if you are suffering from very terrible dandruff and itchy scalp, in other words, if you have white scales all over your shoulders and your hair, then, you need to use lavender oil.
As a word of advice, I really recommend that you mix tea tree oil with lavender oil, one drop of tea tree oil and four drops lavender oil and then mix this oil blend with olive oil, the same amounts I just recommended some few paragraphs ago.
This will also get rid of your itchy scalp and dandruff issues, but if you would like to use lavender oil alone, then please refer to this recipe:
Every day, mix one drop of lavender oil with one teaspoon of olive oil and simply massage your scalp with it, it’s this easy and it will give you amazing results.
- And the third one is lemon juice.
Lemon juice is one of the most natural, safest and healthiest remedies you can use for dandruff and itchy scalp, unfortunately, it’s also very powerful, this is the reason why I highly recommend that you use it only when you are suffering from terrible dandruff issues.
So, every day, for at least fifteen consecutive days, I want you to use the juice of one lemon, or at least two tablespoons, that you need to strain first, on your scalp.
Massage very gently and leave it for at least fifteen minutes, then rinse using warm water.
