Back to roots when irritated, flaky and dry skin in winter haunts you

Home Remedies for a Dry Scalp might seem easy but very effective proven formula for ages.

In the winter, especially, when the air is dry, you might find your skin scalp irritated, flaky and dry. When things worsen, it leads to dandruff. It is easy to soothe dry skin – you simply apply a body lotion, but the scalp can be a little tricky. You can still avoid dryness of the scalp by taking some precautions and spending time on nourishing your scalp:

It may be very cold during winters depending on where you live, but don't use extremely hot water to wash your hair. This robs the hair and the scalp of natural oils which keep it smooth. Use lukewarm water instead.

If you already have a dry scalp, a massage is the best way to get rid of the problem. With your fingertips, gently massage your scalp. This increases circulation of blood and also unclogs sebaceous glands (glands that secrete natural oil) that may have been blocked by dry, dead skin. This also makes it easier to wash way the flakiness by dislodging it.

A massage with oil, such as olive oil, herbal oil or coconut oil is even better, lending extra oils to the hair and scalp. If you heat up the oil a little before applying it, the massage will be even more useful. Apply oil to the hair till it is saturated, and let it be for a couple of hours. Then wash your hair properly, making sure you get out all the oil. If the oil isn't washed away, you hair will look greasy and dirty.

Applying lemon to the scalp about half an hour before a wash will also help better the condition.
