3 Ways to Get Rid of Dry Hair And Scalp
A dry scalp is characterised by loose, white, powdery flakes. It is a result of dehydrated sebaceous glands, the glands that produce the natural oil for our scalps. This dehydration can be due to cold climates or dehydration. Other factors that cause a dry scalp are:
  • Extensive use of chemical products, shampoos and conditioners on your hair.
  • Long exposure to extreme climatic conditions, such as sitting in an air conditioned office or working for long hours in the sun.
  • Styling hair excessively with heat or products which use harsh chemicals.
  • A diet lacking in important nutrients.
The hair care tip to combating dry scalp is to incorporate light essential oils into your hair care regimen such as Vatika Enriched Coconut Hair Oil and Vatika Enriched Olive Hair Oil. To see how to include them in your hair care regimen and for more home remedies to treat dry scalp, check out the following hair care tips:
  • Avocado & Olive Oil Hair Mask
    Avocados are great for nourishing the scalp. Simply mash up an avocado with a teaspoon or 2 of Vatika Enriched Olive Hair Oil. Separate dry hair into 4 sections (2 up, 2 down) and apply the mixture to each section of hair, starting with the bottom 2 first. Once the entire head is covered in the avocado mixture, put a shower cap over it and keep for half an hour. After that, rinse in the shower using a mild shampoo.
  • Eggs & Mayonnaise Hair Mask
    Dry hair can be really frizzy. Eggs and mayonnaise work on your hair to make it soft. Separate the yolks of 2 eggs from their whites. Whisk the egg yolks with 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise. Use this mask on the bottom 2/3rds of your hair. Put a shower cap over your head and let it sit for at least 15 minutes before washing out with cold water. If you use warm water, the egg will get cooked. You wouldn’t want that dear, would you?
  • Lemon Juice & Honey Mask
    Honey, with its anti-bacterial properties, and lemon with its cleansing properties make for a successful duo. Using this hair care tip for a dry scalp can help treat the condition naturally. Remember that lemon should not be used on broken, irritated skin as it may cause a stinging sensation or sometimes even aggravate the problem. Take some lemon juice and mix it with honey. Now pour it over dry hair, massaging thoroughly to ensure all strands are covered. Place a shower cap over hair and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Now wash your hair and discover perfectly soft mane.
