Improve Scalp Health with These Home Remedies
1. Oil massages for scalp are beneficial!
Whether you choose to do an oil massage while your hair is wet or dry, using a hair oil to massage your scalp can help improve the overall health. During the colder months, many women gravitate towards coconut oil due to its ability to penetrate and moisturize. If you feel that coconut oil leaves your hair feeling a tad too greasy, opt for using it as a treatment during your wash routine.
2. Create an excessively grease-free environment.
An overproduction of grease on your scalp can lead to scalp issues like dermatitis, and it can also create the perfect environment for dirt to thrive. Keep your scalp as grease-free as possible with the help of a dry shampoo. Apply TRESemmé Fresh & Clean Dry Shampoo to your scalp whenever you feel like there may be an abundance of grease on your scalp area.
3. Take advantage of scalp scrubs.
Scalp scrubs are becoming more and more popular and accessible. You can create your own using ingredients found right in your kitchen cabinet. One scalp scrub option is to mix olive oil or coconut oil with brown sugar. Another option is to mix this with your scalp conditioner like Dove DermaCare Scalp Soothing Moisture Anti-Dandruff Conditioner and use as a gentle exfoliating treatment after shampooing.
