Natural treatment for dandruff, irritated scalp and eczema
For every type of eczema we always recommend a natural remedy. A sustainable approach to dandruff, flakes and itching focuses on restoring the scalp's natural oil and acid mantle.
Oil cure for dry, flaky and itchy scalp
Especially with eczema and dandruff it is important to nourish the scalp and keep it supple. This will help with a dry, flaky, tight or itchy scalp. Use a natural suitable oil for this, such as Argan oil and massage a generous amount gently and firmly into your scalp. Preferably leave the oil in overnight, or longer, before washing it out.
Natural anti-dandruff shampoo bar
Always use a mild and organic shampoo to wash your hair. A natural shampoo bar is excellent for this and also very environmentally friendly!
Rinse with apple cider vinegar
A diluted apple cider vinegar rinse not only gives a nice shine to your hair. It is perfect to use against a problematic scalp. The acetic acid in organic apple cider vinegar is proven to have naturally antibacterial and antifungal properties. This makes it quite effective in killing and preventing dandruff caused by yeast on the scalp. It can also help lower the pH of the scalp, which can reduce the symptoms of dandruff. This also leads to a reduction in itching and flaking.
De organic Juniper apple cider vinegar hair rinse is a great choice for an itchy scalp and dandruff. The caring ingredients apple cider vinegar, arctic juniper extract, soothing vetiver essential oils and cooling peppermint have antibacterial properties and reduce excessive sebum production.
Natural treatments take time to show results. If the complaints of scalp eczema and dandruff have not diminished at all after six weeks of treatment, then it may be something other than dandruff on the scalp. Such as, for example, another type of eczema, psoriasis or a fungal infection. It is therefore wise to make an appointment with a doctor or dermatologist. This also applies to an inflamed or painful scalp or when your hair starts to fall out.
