In Part 1 of this post we saw how fenugreek seeds can solve the problem of an itchy scalp caused by dandruff. Here are some other natural remedies for an itchy scalp:
Olive Oil and Rosemary: Sometimes an itchy scalp can become sore and irritated, and may even be painful in some cases. This could be a skin condition or an allergic reaction to an irritant such as hair color or even be caused by sunburn.
For this condition, use olive oil and into that mix crushed rosemary leaves. In the alternative, you can use rosemary oil with the olive oil.
Massage this mixture into the scalp[scalp massage] and leave for about a quarter of an hour and then rinse it out.
For a sore scalp, chamomile is also seen to be very soothing. Use chamomile oil directly on to the sore areas of the scalp.
Apple Cider Vinegar: Sometimes it isn’t just an itchy scalp but one that has crusting sores that bothers you. In this case, use apple cider vinegar and water in equal parts and apply to the hair.
Some even recommend using this remedy undiluted; i.e. adding no water. If using diluted apple cider vinegar, there is no need to rinse this out, but if using direct, it must be rinsed out.
