Eradicate itchy scalp the natural way
An itchy scalp is not just uncomfortable, but has the potential to undo all the work you’ve done on your hair in the morning as you scrabble away at your roots throughout the day.
Of course, as with many modern-day remedies, finding a natural itchy scalp treatment free from nasty chemical ingredients can prove difficult.
Fortunately, there are lots of natural alternatives to off-the-shelf treatments which are proven to keep any stressful and embarrassing daytime scalp-scratching to a minimum. Shampoos rich in essential oils are a great way for anyone with an itchy scalp to start the morning.
Sandalwood, Rose and Chickweed oils are all excellent itching combatants, often used to treat medical conditions such as eczema and psoriasis in sensitive areas such as the head.
When you wash your hair in the mornings, massage the shampoo gently into your hair so that it coats your roots for maximum effect. Consider turning the temperature down in the shower, as hot water will dry out your skin too.
Remember, it’s important not to scrub too hard, as this may aggravate your condition. Whatever you do, avoid perfumed soap and shower gels. Similarly, be sure not to rub too hard if you are towel drying your hair. After washing apply a scalp soothing oil or conditioner to further moisturise your skin and roots.
Avoid wearing hats made from wool or other materials that could irritate your skin. If you do wear a hat, it may be worth thinking about the detergent you use to wash it, which may be exacerbating your itching woes.
This also goes for your bedclothes, but particularly your pillowcase. Choose a detergent formulated for sensitive skin, which should help you to get a better night’s sleep and reduce the risk of waking up in the morning with that itching feeling.
Scalp treatments can be used in conjunction with products specifically formulated to treat dry hair, so there is no need to worry about sacrificing your appearance for the sake of a soothed scalp either.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
