It can be uncomfortable, bothersome, and even a little embarrassing when your scalp is dry. It can seem difficult finding a cure for dry scalp but it is not as hard as it seems! Life will feel easier and more comfortable when the problem is resolved. We are giving the best know-how tips to help relieve your itchy, flaky scalp!
How To Get Rid Of Your Dry Scalp
STEP 1: Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
Like your skin, your scalp needs some TLC and hydration so it can be at it’s best. Dehydration, sun exposure, or drying hair products can be a major cause of flaky, dry scalp.
But don’t worry! This is an easy and affordable fix. One of the best products to help a dry scalp is actually water. Drink about 8 glasses of water to keep your scalp healthy and hydrated. This can also depend on how active you are and the climate you live in but just drink plenty of water.
STEP 2: Use a hydrating shampoo
There are tons of hair products on the market but some are not as kind to your scalp as others can be. There are some that can do even more damage than help you! The best shampoos will nourish and hydrate your hair and scalp.
Shampoos containing natural oils and ingredients can be fantastic for this. A wonderful shampoo is STRONGENDS Hydrating & Strengthening Shampoo! This shampoo is great for dry scalp with its deep moisturizing properties.
Make sure not to overdo it with shampoo, because shampoo can strip your hair of it’s natural oils leaving your scalp feeling dry. If possible, try not to wash your hair daily but weekly!
STEP 3: Massage Your Scalp
To massage your scalp, just simply take your fingertips and rub along your scalp when you shampoo your hair in the shower. Massaging your scalp will increase blood flow and stimulate production of natural oils which will help your hair feel less dry!
STEP 4: Take Time To Deep Condition
If you really cannot stand an itchy, flaky scalp and it is affecting your everyday activities, treat your scalp to some lovely deep conditioning! You can do this right at home with the right hair mask. We recommend our moisture loving Curls & Naturals Conditioning Repair Mask which will do the absolute best job to moisturize your dry itchy scalp! It contains natural ingredients and will help soothe your scalp whilst also repairing and strengthening weak or brittle hair!
