Do you suffer from an oily and flaky scalp?
Well, I’ve got the right solution for you, I’m going to share with you my favorite natural remedies in order to get rid of this problem, most importantly, these remedies are not only very easy to use, they are also extremely beneficial because they will get rid of most of your oily and flaky scalp causes, which are many.
So, the first thing we need to talk about is why you have an oily and flaky scalp in the first place?
It’s simply, because your scalp is under attack!
You are probably having some troubles with bacteria or funguses in your scalp, it’s causing inflammations, and it’s also munching on your skin, as a result, your scalp is going to produce more sebum, the oily substance that’s making your scalp very greasy and protected, in other words, having an oily scalp is a defense mechanism in order for your scalp to keep itself away from harm and to also stay healthy.

- So, the first natural remedy to use for your oily and flaky scalp is tea tree oil.
Tea tree oil is definitely one of my favorite natural remedies to use when you have an oily and flaky scalp, it doesn’t only get rid of bad funguses and bacteria, but it also brings balance to your scalp which is amazing and will also prevent other inflammations from happening.
However, most people don’t know how to use tea tree oil, especially when suffering from scalp issues!
They think that applying some few drops onto their hands and massaging their scalps is more than enough! Well, this is just dangerous and it’s going to cause you much more troubles.
As a rule of thumb, always use tea tree oil with another fatty acid, preferably coconut or olive oil.
So, to get rid of your oily and flaky scalp, here is what you need to do:
Every day, add three drops of tea tree oil to one teaspoon of olive oil, mix very well, and then simply massage your scalp with it, be very careful, don’t touch your eyes or your nose, it’s very powerful.
After just five days of consecutive use, you will notice amazing results.
- The second one is peppermint oil.
Peppermint oil is not as powerful as tea tree oil, nevertheless, it will get rid of your oily and flaky scalp symptoms very quickly, but what’s wonderful about this amazing essential oil is that it’s very pleasant in smell, and if you are suffering from migraine or headaches, it will also help you and lower your itchy sensation and sensitive scalp a lot.
So, just mix a quarter of a teaspoon of peppermint oil with two teaspoons of olive oil, then, simply massage your scalp every day for at least seven days, it will clear your oily and flaky scalp very quickly.
- And the third one is salicylic acid.
Salicylic acid is the main component of aspirin, it’s responsible for clearing your sebaceous glands, the organs responsible for producing sebum, the natural oil produced by your scalp which gives it its greasy look and feeling, and it will also lower inflammations very quickly.
So, every day, mix one teaspoon of liquid salicylic acid with two tablespoons of warm water and rinse your scalp, make sure you massage very gently.
Unfortunately, you have to decide, you can’t use all these natural remedies at once to get rid of your oily and flaky scalp, just use one, and in my opinion, the best is tea tree oil so. Good luck.
