Top 5 Natural Ingredients for Dandruff and Dry Scalp

Dandruff and dry scalp is no fun game, nor is it a pretty picture. But thanks to mamma nature, there are several natural ingredients that can help get rid of those snowflakes once and for all. 


It’s a tricky business moisturizing the scalp without making the roots and top layer of the hair look greasy throughout the day. But, there are several natural ingredients out there that you should most definitely be using on a regular basis to treat that dandruff and relieve that scalp. 


Our top 5 favorite natural ingredients for treating dry scalp include:


  • Jojoba Oil
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Shea Butter 
  • Aloe Vera

  • In this article we’ll explore how each of these natural ingredients work at hydrating your scalp and relieving both that stress and symptoms related to dandruff and dry scalp. 


    Let’s get started!


    Jojoba Oil for treating dry scalp and dandruff

    Who doesn’t love Jojoba oil? Besides being an all natural light weight oil, which also happens to be fragrance free, it also happens to be relatively affordable and awesome. 


    Jojoba oil works at ridding the dead skin and flakes that are clogging the pores on your scalp. When the pores on your scalp are blocked, the natural sebum oil the body produces can't push through and hydrate the hair and scalp. Jojoba oil is very similar to sebum oil, and so it is quickly absorbed into the scalp, while it opens the way for the sebum to naturally nourish both your scalp and hair. 


    If you want to use jojoba oil on your scalp, it’s best to mix it with a carrier oil like coconut oil, olive oil or black castor oil. Add this remedy to your beauty routine once a week, and see the incredible effects it has on your scalp and hair. 


    Tea Tree Oil for treating dry scalp and dandruff

    Tea tree oil is an incredibly powerful essential oil.


    It has been proven to have antimicrobial and anti inflammatory properties. Some research indicates that tea tree oil has the ability to treat a specific fungus related directly to dandruff and it is also rich in terpenes, which treats several skin conditions and dry scalp. 


    Because tea tree oil is so very strong, one needs to dilute it with either olive oil, coconut oil or almond oil to treat both skin and scalp conditions. 


    Coconut Oil for treating dry scalp and dandruff

    Why are coconuts just so good at being so good for us? 


    Coconut oil will, without a doubt, hydrate the scalp and prevent dryness. It has been proven to treat eczema, and its antifungal properties will help breakdown and prevent the strain of fungus which causes dandruff in the first place. 


    Coconut oil can be applied directly onto the scalp, as is. Leave it in for 30 minutes, or overnight (if you’re willing to stain your bedsheets with oil, or sleep in a hair cap) and wash out with shampoo. Since coconut oil is fairly heavy, you may need to shampoo twice to really get it out, without looking like you have greasy hair. 


    Shea Butter for treating dry scalp and dandruff

    The Shea tree is native to West Africa and has been reported to have been in use since at least the 14th century, if not early. 


    The fatty acids found in shea butter are easily absorbed into the skin and effectively hydrates the scalp. We love shea butter so much because it actually works at sealing in the moisture, so that it doesn’t escape the minute your scalp comes in contact with the sun’s rays. Shea butter won't make your hair look oily and will soothe and calm inflammation related to dandruff and dry scalp. 


    Shea butter, like coconut oil, is safe and effective for treating dry scalp and dandruff. You just need to make sure you are buying pure shea butter without any added chemicals or toxins to make the butter more appealing to the market. Who needs that added stuff anyway? We love it natural! 


    Aloe Vera for treating dry scalp and dandruff

    If you want to apply a natural product that will heal your dandruff or dry scalp and will certainly not leave your hair looking greasy, then aloe vera is your go-to. The antibacterial and antifungal properties found in aloe vera can help treat and prevent dandruff. The pectin found in aloe vera strengthens the cells on your scalp and stimulates new cell growth for a healthy hydrated scalp. 


    You can apply aloe vera directly to your scalp at night, or 20 minutes before showering for optimal results. The best part about applying aloe vera onto your scalp at night is that it won't stain your pillows. Okay, no, the best part is that it will hydrate and strengthen your scalp. But it’s certainly an added bonus! 


    Our final thoughts on treating dandruff and dry scalp naturally 

    They key to treating dry scalp and dandruff is really in getting to know the rhythm of your hair and scalp. Don’t skip out on too many wash days if your scalp can’t handle it, try to take cooler showers and as always, drink more water. You can also opt for Koils By Nature’s fragrance free Hydrating Hair & Scalp Shampoo to consistently treat and clean your scalp with nearly all of the natural ingredients mentioned above. 


    Have you recently cured your dandruff or dry scalp? What natural tricks do you have up your sleeve? We’d love to hear from you and about your natural beauty regime.
