A dry and itchy scalp can be caused from buildup due to product use or can also be caused by dandruff and fungal infections.

Either way, an itchy scalp is annoying and most of us have experienced it at least once in our lifetime.

Not to worry, there is a really easy way to relieve that itchy scalp where you won’t have to keep repeatedly scratching at it.

Using natural items commonly found in the kitchen or refrigerator, this method is easy and you don’t have to worry about what you are putting on your scalp and hair as you’ll know what every ingredient is.

Items You Need:
1 tbsp. Coconut Oil
1 tbsp. Plain Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp. Honey
1 tbsp. Almond Oil
1/2 tsp. Lemon Juice
5 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
5 drops Tea Tree Oil

1 Hairnet or Shower cap

Directions:
Mix together in a small mixing bowl until creamy and smooth. Apply directly to scalp and comb through hair using a wide tooth comb. Massage your scalp with your fingertips for a few minutes.

Put your hair up into a hair net or shower cap and relax for around 15 minutes. Paint your toes, read a chapter from your favorite book, just do something and let the magic do its work.

So after 10-15 minutes, remove the cap and comb out as much of the mixture as you can get and just throw that away.

Rinse hair using lukewarm water, and shampoo one time if you really want to but this is not required.

This can be done a couple times a month and for really itchy scalps up to once a week.

A couple tips:

1. Don’t leave the mixture in for longer than 15 minutes, as it will start to harden and be a lot more difficult to remove.

2. Try and remove as much of the mixture as you can before you rinse your hair. Coconut oil hardens and backed up drains can be quite expensive to unclog.
