One of my many struggles in life is finding the perfect itchy scalp shampoo for me. I know how embarrassing and excruciating having an itchy scalp is. Constantly having the urge to scratch your scalp until you can no longer take it and sometimes even results to bleeding is a difficult condition to manage. This is why it is important that you treat your condition immediately when you start developing an itchy scalp. There are so many options with this one but sometimes they, too, can fail you. This is why I patronize homemade shampoo instead. I believe that going natural and organic has helped my itchy scalp more than over-the-counter shampoos did. Here are some of my favorite recipes of homemade shampoo that are guaranteed to help treat itchy scalp.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar as Itchy Scalp Treatment

Itchy Scalp ShampooThere is the thing called product build up. This is one of the major culprits for an itchy scalp. This is because we tend to use the same products over and over and it leaves a residue on our scalps which can cause itching and flaking. This is why I use apple cider vinegar as a final rinse to my hair. Not really as a shampoo but more as a treatment to prevent product build up and remove any shampoo or product residue that is left on my scalp. This also helps in healing and wounds on your scalp caused by constant scratching and abrasion. I use a cup of water with three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and massage it on my scalp after shampooing. I let it sit on my scalp to work its magic for about 5 minutes before rinsing with water. But be careful with using this if you have a perm as it can make it loose and straighten your hair.

 

Tea Tree Oil as Itchy Scalp Shampoo

Now you know that tea tree oil is not just used to treat acne but also for itchy scalp. Tea tree oil is one of the many natural oils found in the world that has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that helps heal and calm down an itchy scalp. Massage diluted tea tree oil to your scalp for 5 minutes before rinsing and going about your regular hair care routine. Or, you can find many organic and natural shampoos out there such as Nature’s Gate and Rainwater to contain tea tree oil in their shampoos.

 

Homemade Moisturizer for the Scalp

Itchy Scalp ShampooSometimes, the cause of itchy scalp is having dry scalp. This means that you need to moisturize your scalp to replenish lost oil and prevent it from itching. One homemade moisturizer for the scalp that I swear by is a mixture of a quarter of milk, a tablespoon of honey, and another tablespoon of olive oil. Massage the mixture to your dry scalp and leave it for about 30 minutes to an hour before rinsing and doing your normal hair care routine.
