* You don’t necessarily need a whole lot of shampoos and products to treat an itchy scalp - your weapons lie right at your home. We’ve listed down some of the tried and tested home remedies to treat an itchy scalp. Read on…

*  Essential

Oil Power:

Don’t restrict the use of essential oils to just aromatherapy; a mixture of essential oils is considered a good home remedy for an itchy scalp. Choose from natural oils like lavender oil, tea tree oil, almond oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil and peppermint oil.

Always remember to use these oils in their diluted form, especially if you have a sensitive scalp. Regular application of these oils helps nourish and moisturize the skin of the scalp, and prevent bacterial and fungal infections.

*  Lemon Goodness:

Yet another powerful home remedy for treating an itchy scalp is the lemon. Simply squeeze a lemon, and apply its juice directly to your scalp before a shampoo. This home remedy is effective in treating dandruff, too!

If you have a dry scalp, mix together the juice of a lemon and four tablespoons of fresh curd. The curd will help moisturize your scalp, naturally, while the lemon will fight against dandruff and an itchy scalp.

*  Apple Cider:

To treat an itchy scalp, make a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water, and apply it directly onto the scalp, using a cotton ball. Leave it on for a few minutes and rinse with clear water. Apple cider helps cure yeast and viral infections of the scalp that cause the itchy sensation, de-rooting the problem from its very core.

*  Aloe Vera:

This wonder plant may have helped you reduce your sunburn, or calm down aggravated acne; now it’s time to harness the power of aloe vera for the scalp. The gel obtained from the aloe vera plant works in two ways - its antibacterial properties prevent the growth of bacteria that cause scalp infections, and its cooling, soothing properties help prevent itching and burning of the scalp.

Just cut out a leaf of the aloe vera plant and extract the gel; apply it directly onto the scalp, leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse.
