A healthy scalp encourages strong hair growth for years. But when your scalp is unhealthy, it can be dry, itchy and bad for the health of your hair. If you find that you're constantly scratching your head or can see white flakes in your hair, you might want to consider that one of the following is the culprit: dehydration, hard water, harsh synthetic chemical shampoos or styling products, cold climate, sun overexposure or diet deficiency.
Achieving true beauty is absolutely a holistic practice, so be sure to consider multiple factors when treating dry scalp.In order to heal your scalp externally, though, you'll need to exfoliate and moisturize. This allows the body's natural regeneration process to restore itself, heal, slough off dead cells, reinforce the acid mantle (the protective layer form by sebum and sweat on the skin surface) and lock in hydration.
This scalp treatment will help you do all that, and it's a cinch to whip up.
