Natural Home Remedies For An Itchy Scalp

Sore, burning itchy scalp? Dry, painful flaky scalp and dandruff? Or does your scalp just feel not quite right?
Whichever case it may be, you'll be glad to hear that an itchy scalp can be soothed and alleviated using simple natural home remedies that can be made in as little as 10 or 15 minutes.
Please note that as with all medical conditions, I would advise you to speak to your doctor or dermatologist if you are suffering from a serious condition. If you are pregnant you MUST consult your doctor before starting any treatment.
Okay, so let's get on to the home remedies for an itchy scalp.
Itchy Scalp Remedy No. 1
Fenugreek seeds are excellent for getting rid of dandruff:
  • Take 2 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds and soak overnight in water
  • In the morning grind the soft seeds into a fine paste
  • Apply this paste all over scalp and leave for half an hour
  • Rinse off thoroughly with soap nut solution
  • A teaspoon of lime juice on the last rinse will work wonders

Itchy Scalp Remedy No. 2
Now this one's an old folk remedy. Apple cider vinegar has been used for decades and will help restore the proper acid/alkaline balance of the scalp and kill a bacteria that clogs the pores that release oil to the scalp. It is the clogging of pores on your scalp that result in scales and crusts being formed.
  • Dilute the apple cider vinegar by 50% with water
  • Apply to the scalp and let dry. No need to rinse.
  • A similar remedy suggests pouring two tablespoons into a cup, applying the undiluted vinegar to the scalp, and leaving it on from 15 minutes to three hours before shampooing. Lemon juice may also be used.
The acid in these remedies is what helps bring the scalp back into chemical balance.
Itchy Scalp Remedy No. 3
Rosemary is great as a sore, itchy scalp remedy. Rub rosemary oil or a mixture of olive oil and crushed rosemary leaves into your scalp and leave on for 15 minutes.
If you've got a sore scalp, Chamomile is good to use as a compress for inflammation. Chamomile oil dabbed on scalp sores is very soothing. Apply to the scalp to soothe itching.
Remember to patch test all oils before applying to your scalp, so as to avoid any allergic reactions.
