Hair Loss caused due to Dry Scalp
Hair loss in most cases is caused by genetic baldness. The primary reason for baldness is “family baldness” which is passed on to generations. Medical advancements take this research a step further to statistically prove that 60% of the fathers who suffer with baldness pass this on to their male children. Dermatologists have also concluded that dry itchy scalp plays a key role in hair loss leading to baldness and the good news is that there are some remedies that are quick and more importantly mighty effective.
The first basic treatment taught at the school of cosmetology is the scalp treatment. It is hard to believe that most of the beauty routines don’t consider the scalp, which is the closest to the muscle that matter, the brain. Every square inch of the body is pampered except the scalp, which is the most essential. The good news is that it does not carry a big price tag along with it. There are certain dry scalp hair loss home treatments that go a long way.
Before the “How” always precedes the “Why”
- It is more hygienic than hair conditioner and shampoo
- Removes dry flakes
- Cures and reduces dandruff
- Fosters hair growth
Medical research has proved that hardened sebum does not allow the hair to grow freely and hence the hair growth is slowed down and increases hair loss.
Get rid of the problem – How?
- Bristle brush is the best, preferably the roller brush.
- The Ingredients.
- Cotton balls.
- · A friend who follows the golden rule (You scratch my back and I scratch yours).
Coconut oil is the chosen ingredient. It is extremely rich and nourishing for the scalp and it has a great aroma too. Some prefer olive oil; the only word of caution is that it has to be organic. Jojoba oil is another classic remedy; squeeze a little lime juice in the oil and the scalp will start responding to the nourishment.
One strong recommendation: 4 spoons of organic coconut oil, Mixed with 2 spoons of tea – tree oil and few drops of rosemary oil. “Feels like heaven”!
Right out of the Kitchen: Coconut oil 4 tablespoons, 2 tablespoons of lime juice and one table spoon of grape juice.
The only word of caution would be to use tea-tree oil depending on the scalp type, because some may find the oil itchy.
Application – The final step!
- Rotate the brush from the top and press down a little on the scalp. The objective is to improve blood circulation and ensure the dry flaky skin falls off. If pressed too hard it may hurt; just ensure to apply the right amount of pressure.
- Part your hair at the center; pour the oil contents (which ever composition) right in the middle of at the scalp using the cotton ball. Apply towards the side, inch by inch making sure the oil is well applied and spread
- Massage the scalp. A circular fingertip scalp massage. Continue till about 15-20 minutes to feel free and energized.
- The cherry on the cake is to wash your scalp with a conditioner and shampoo.
