You can keep that oily scalp in check with these super simple kitchen hacks…
Apple cider vinegar
ACV is an acetic acid that helps detoxify your scalp by controlling the oil production without eroding your scalp of its essential moisture. Cider vinegar also helps unclog hair follicles and prevents hair fall.
Use ACV as a hair rinse by mixing two spoons of it in a cup of hot water. Pour this mixture onto your scalp after shampooing it. Give it five minutes and wash it off with water for best results.
Baking soda is the best natural ingredient that nature has bestowed upon us. It helps controls scalp oil production without causing dryness and hair fall.
Mix in two to three spoons of baking soda to one liter of water and sprinkle it onto your scalp. Let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes and continue with your regular hair wash. Repeat this twice a week.
Oatmeal absorbs oil and impurities from the scalp thus leaving it cleansed and healthy. Plus it works to cure dandruff and dry, itchy scalp with its soothing properties.
Grind oatmeal and a cup of water into a thick paste and apply it all over your scalp and hair. Let it sit and dry for 20 minutes and wash it off with cold water. Do this twice a week for a healthy scalp.
This super seed also helps cleanse the scalp by controlling the extra oils without disturbing normal pH levels. It also has essential nutrients that manage to condition your hair and add luster to it naturally.
Take two tablespoons of methi seeds and an equal quantity of gram flour that is besan, now add coconut milk to it and grind it into a paste. Leave this mixture onto your scalp for an hour and then wash it off with your regular shampoo routine for lustrous hair and a healthy scalp.
Olive oil and brown sugar
If you are blessed with an oily scalp then know this, your scalp is in dire need of exfoliation. An oily scalp attracts all kinds of dust and dirt and can most certainly use a good sloughing every once-in-a-while.
Combine both olive oil and brown sugar into a bowl and gently work the mixture into your scalp with your fingertips for about three minutes. Massage your scalp well and then wash it off with cold water. Wash, rinse, cleanse, and condition as usual for a clean and healthy scalp.
