Ask Angelia – Itchy Scalp

Posted September 16th, 2009 by admin

Dear Angelia – Little Spirit,

I wash my hair regularly but my scalp itches enough to drive me crazy. What do you suggest I do to alleviate this incessant itch

Itchy Scalp

Dear Itchy,

Most companies would see such a question as an invitation to sell you their much hyped product, but here is a simple home remedy you might try.

Dry Scalp Treatment

  • 4 bags of green tea
  • 4 bags of Chamomile tea
  • 3 sprigs of lavender
  • 2 Tablespoons of fresh rosemary

Take 3 cups of water and boil it, remove from stove add all the ingredients and steep for ½ hour. Let cool down and squeeze tea bags to remove all the remaining tea, then strain out the rosemary and lavender, store in a container until you are ready to use it. Shampoo your hair with a gentle shampoo containing aloe, rinse well and then apply the tea mixture to your hair massage in well and do not rinse out. This will not only treat dry scalp but it will treat dry hair as well.

Dear Angelia – Little Spirit

Thank you ever so much for your suggestion, it worked wonders! My hair has never felt so soft and the itching is gone

Not So Itchy
