Dry Scalp?

Hair Tip of the Month

By AmberSue, owner - Thairapy Salon November 22, 2017

During winter many people get a dry scalp.  It can be itchy and flaky and pretty annoying. You may think it's dandruff and try out a dandruff shampoo, but you still see flakes.  Here are 3 tips for getting rid of dry scalp

Step One:

Do a scalp exfoliation to get rid of build up and the dry flakes that haven't shed yet.  A deep cleansing salt and olive oil scrub is great for stimulating hair growth and removing any dandruff or dry flakes without drying out the scalp. The fatty acids in the olive oil coat the  hair and provide moisture and protection against damage and  the lemon juice dissolves product residue and adds a fresh lemony scent.

You will need
    2 tablespoons sea salt
    1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1-2 tablespoons olive oil

Mix salt, lemon juice and oil together. Wet your hair thoroughly and massage the scrub into scalp for 5 minutes. Rinse well and shampoo.

Step Two:

Use a Sulfate free shampoo. Sulfates are a degreaser and it dries out our skin and then we get those annoying flakes.

Step Three:

Many root boosting products and dry shampoos contain alcohol. Since we tend to spray these right at our scalp they can really dry it out. Look for alcohol free products. Your scalp and hair will thank you!
