As we look ahead to the challenges cold weather brings we offer our list of home remedies for taking better care of your scalp, vital in the battle against hair loss. Simple treatments that take little or no time and provide visible results.
Scalp Care Is Hair Care
As we head into winter it is definitely time to take a little more care of ourselves. We would go so far as to say vital if you are suffering from hair loss, in which case taking care of your scalp should be a high priority. While there are over the counter solutions available the popularity of home remedies is understandably appealing to anyone wanting to reduce their exposure to medications.
So as the cold weather begins to bite we will all experience the gamut of factors that can lead to a scalp with poor condition, central heating and wearing hats for starters. Dandruff is endemic with up to 50% of people suffering, other rarer conditions like psoriasis can be debilitating and hard to manage. Effectively managing these conditions is vital if you want to give your hair its best chance of growing strong and looking healthy. One of the benefits of going the home remedy route is that anything on our list can be used in conjunction with any medication prescribed by your doctor or dermatologist.
Tea Tree Oil
You were possibly expecting to see it but the anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial make it an old-fashioned no-brainer. Great for reducing greasiness and itching but a fantastic accompaniment to any other treatment you might be using.
Of all the home remedies you can grow on a shelf this is our stand-out favorite. It is a wonderful salve for anything from burns to cold sores, applied to the scalp it delivers on all fronts. Like the Tea Tree Oil, it offers control of inflammation and fungal infections.
Apple Cider Vinegar
The much-vaunted health properties of the apple go beyond keeping the doctor away. Taken orally it is credited with aiding the metabolism and helping to keep weight off. Applied to the scalp the acidity helps the process of removing dead skin while balancing the pH level.
These fatty acids are essential, they help build cell membranes but are also important for the healthy function of vital organs like the heart and lungs.
