Home Remedies for a Dry Scalp

A dry scalp leads to a variety of problems, including dandruff, hair loss, and other skin conditions. In order to figure out how to combat a dry scalp, you need to understand what causes a dry scalp. Your scalp naturally contains sebum, which naturally moisturizes your hair and scalp, and a dry scalp simply means there is a shortage of sebum. Fortunately, there are many treatments and home remedies for dry scalp that will moisturize your scalp the way sebum does.

Apply Coconut Oil

Massaging coconut oil into your scalp is a foolproof way to moisturize your dry scalp. Studies have found that coconut oil, in comparison to other mineral oils, can penetrate skin and hair the deepest. While any oil will help moisturize a dry scalp, extra virgin coconut oil will be the most effective. Be sure to evenly apply oil to the entire surface area of your scalp.
