A dry scalp is more common than you think though its commonality does not spare one from its horrendous symptoms. Side effects include itchiness, often pain, dry-looking or excessively oily hair and a whole lot of embarrassment. Before you look at the remedies we present to you, try to identify the reason behind your dry scalp. It can be weather, hair products, your diet or much more. If you have one, here are some home remedies to try.
1. Coconut Oil
Nothing is more nourishing and moisturising for your scalp than coconut oil. Try and get an organic one so you’re not putting anything artificial on your scalp. Massage twice a week on your hair, let it absorb for a few hours and then wash it out! Don’t think putting it overnight will help your scalp, it can make it more oily too.
2. Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera gel is a miracle gel that we can get completely free and pretty much all the time. It can soothe anything irritated and also has moisturising properties. Extract some gel from your own aloe plant and put some on your scalp for about 30 minutes. Wash it out as per routine.

3. Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a healer and has antioxidant properties which can soothe your scalp. However, be sure not to put it on your head directly as it is an essential oil after all. Mix some in with a hair mask and then apply it on your scalp only. Wash it out after an hour with a gentle shampoo.
4. Yoghurt Hair Mask
Our nanis and dadis have taught us this one! Nothing can treat a dry scalp like a good ol’ yoghurt hair mask. Simply take homemade yoghurt (best not to get store-bought ones) and add your choice of oil to it or an egg to it and apply it on your scalp. This will be super nourishing for your scalp and also make your hair soft.
5. Mashed Bananas
Bananas are also a source of nourishment and moisturising so they can be great for a dry scalp. Mash or blend some bananas with a tablespoon of coconut oil and apply it to your hair. Blending is better because then the banana chunks won’t get stuck in your hair. Apply for 30 minutes max and enjoy the results.
