We all know that having an Itchy scalp could be so annoying. You get to scratch your hair constantly and may even end up having an injury if your scalp is as sensitive as mine is.
I remember when my scalp used to itch so much, it wasn't a good experience at all. I used to have dandruff which wasn't funny as flakes would fall off like powder and it could be so embarrassing... lol. Thus, it triggered the itchy scalp. Asides dandruff, itchy scalp could be caused by heat, stress, scalp infection, product buildup, or even a reaction to a product.
I would like to share 3 ways one can get rid of itchy scalp. I tried them and they worked.
1. Moisturize your scalp with moisturizing oils/cream : When the hair is dry, it turns brittle and a dry scalp causes itchiness. So always try to keep your scalp moisturised as often as possible.
2. Clean Your Scalp Properly during wash : Try to wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo once a month and follow up with a moisturizing conditioner. This would help to prevent product buildup. Also get a shampoo that contains tea tree oil or you get the oil itself. It reduces the itch as it helps get rid of Dandruff too.
3. Clean your scalp with lemon juice:
Squeeze out the juice from the lemon into a plastic bowl. Using a cotton wool, clean your scalp with it and leave for about 30mins before washing and conditioning. In a couple of days, you would say goodbye to itchy scalp for good as lemon has antiseptic properties which revitalize the scalp.
Please note that itchy scalp leads to hairloss as when we scratch our head, it causes the hair to weaken and fall off. So whenever your scalp itches like crazy, you should know something is wrong and you could try this tips.
