It’s not a good sign if you’re constantly itching your scalp. Prolonged itching can cause further damage to your delicate scalp, which could take longer time to heal. An itchy scalp or scalp pruritus is a common condition which can affect many due to several underlying reasons. The causes for this can range from dandruff, Seborrheic dermatitis, stress and even the usage of harmful hair dyes, harsh products and not maintaining scalp hygiene.
In order to maintain a well-nourished and healthy scalp, oiling it very important. Not only does oiling soften those beautiful tresses, but it soothes your entire scalp and instantly relaxes you. For best results, leave your hair oiled overnight and wash it the next day. Be sure to use a mild shampoo and conditioner. It is best to stick to paraben and sulphate-free.
While it’s recommended to wash your hair 2-3 times a week, applying a hair mask on your hair will further help to reduce itchiness, while thoroughly nourishing your scalp and hair. You can use this homemade Ayurvedic hair mask and feel the difference!
