5 Best Home Remedies for Itchy Scalp

It can be painful and annoying to deal with an itchy head. Here are five good home treatments that will help soothe and relieve an itchy scalp:

1. Rinse with ACV

Use equal parts water and apple cider vinegar. Apply the mixture to your scalp using a spray bottle or cotton ball. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse well.

2. Coconut Oil Massage

Gently warm coconut oil and apply to scalp. Gently massage oil into your scalp for a few minutes. Keep it on for 30 minutes or overnight before shampooing your hair.

3. Aloe Vera Gel

Fresh aloe vera gel from a leaf can be applied to the scalp. Leave it on 30–60 minutes, then rinse. As a moisturiser, aloe vera can reduce scalp itching.

4. Tea Tree Oil Treatment

Mix a few drops of tea tree oil with coconut or olive oil. Apply the mixture to your scalp and wait 15-20 minutes. Thoroughly rinse. Tea tree oil reduces scalp irritation with antibacterial qualities.

5. Baking Soda Scrub

Mix 1-2 teaspoons baking soda with water to make a paste. Apply the paste to itchy scalp areas gently. After a few minutes, thoroughly rinse. Baking soda exfoliates the scalp and reduces buildup and inflammation.
