Jojoba, olive, and peppermint oils will often help to get your scalp back to normal condition. If your scalp is quite sensitive – rose oils and chamomile can help to soothe. For more of an extreme dandruff problem – quite often using oils such as lavender, tea tree, myrrh, patchouli and rosemary can provide relief. Aloe Vera also provides quite a nice moisturizing and healing treat for the scalp.
Simply massage these oils directly onto the scalp and use a gentle shampoo to wash out, or mix a few drops directly into your gentle shampoo and shampoo as usual. You can also apply these oils afterward to add moisture back into the scalp. Feel free to mix a few of the oils to get the best scent and treatment for your scalp.
Dandruff and dry scalp, especially as seen at this time of year, is typically caused by the dry weather – but it can also be caused, or exasperated by stress and a poor diet. Just another reason to take care of your body!
