Dry scalp can appear anytime of year, but especially during the cooler drier months. It can also show up in the most inconvenient moments, but whenever there’s an issue, there is always a solution. 


Dry scalp can appear for any number of reasons. And the best way to figure out the ideal solution for your dandruff or dry scalp, is to first figure out what’s causing it in the first place. It could be as simple as changing your products or changing your habits. Let’s explore 5 quick tips for relieving dandruff and dry scalp today. 


Adjust water temperatures

One of the main causes for dry scalp is water temperature. If you’re one of those who absolutely love a steaming, no burning, hot shower, then you may be experiencing a drier scalp. Especially in the colder seasons. Though a nice steamy shower does feel ultra relaxing and soothing, by the end of it, we step out of the shower with drier skin, scalp and hair than our standard lotions and conditioners can deal with.


If you absolutely need a scorching hot shower, but you’re trying to eliminate dry scalp, try cooling the temperatures down when you wash your hair and scalp. No one’s suggesting an ice cold shower here, but a cooler shower will certainly improve the condition of your scalp and hair (and skin). 


Product Swap

Dandruff and dry scalp can be caused by particular products we are using - daily. And very often, can be a side effect of newly prescribed medications. If you’re experiencing dry scalp, flip over the bottle of medication you’ve been using and see if it’s listed as a side effect. If you’re not taking any medication, you may be experiencing dry scalp because of your shampoo. There are several shampoos that will strip too much oil from your scalp and roots, especially the natural oils we need for a healthy scalp. Try replacing your shampoo with a softer, more gentle shampoo and see if that changes the condition of your scalp. 


Adjust your diet

Very often the foods we’re eating can be the cause, or the cure, to dandruff and dry scalp. For a healthy scalp and hair we need to integrate a healthy diet into our day-to-day lives. Processed foods, foods with high sugar content, and fried foods aren’t necessarily causing the hair and scalp to dry out, but it’s not providing the scalp with the nutrients and vitamins it needs to function in a healthy manner. Nutritious foods like grass fed lean meats, fish, legumes, soy, fruits, raw vegetables and seeds provide the entire body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to function as it should. When all the nutrients are circulating healthily through the body, they can then finally make their way to the scalp and hair for a healthier, softer condition. 


Scalp Massage

No, we are not even kidding you! Besides for treating yourself to a simple state of bliss, a scalp massage helps the blood flow as it should, to where it should. All you need to do is simply massage your scalp gently in circular motions, while shampooing, or better yet, with your favorite essential oil (chamomile or lavender?) and a carrier oil (coconut or grapeseed oil). This can cure both dandruff or dry scalp, depending on the issue. Using oils like tea tree oil with coconut oil are antifungal and can help eradicate dandruff. Just make sure to shampoo and rinse well when using heavier oils in your hair. 


Oils and Shampoos

There are several all natural shampoos and oil treatments out there designed to balance out the scalp and keep the roots and hair clean and healthy. Some of our favorite Koils by Nature anti-dandruff shampoos utilize the antiseptic and nourishing properties of tea tree oil and mint, or are enriched with eucalyptus and lavender. For best results (for both your hair and scalp) top off with Koil by Nature’s ultra moisturizing CocoAloe deep conditioner so your hair is hydrated from the roots and all the way down those curls! 


Final Thoughts on Dandruff and Dry Scalp

To cure dandruff or dry scalp, hydration is key. Drink more water throughout the day, and try to balance out your diet for best results overall. If you frequently have dandruff, you may be shampooing too often, or not enough. Only you know the answer to that, but try switching up your washing schedule and see how that helps over time. For many men and women with dandruff, the solution is as simple as that!
