How to Do a Dry Scalp Treatment
(With 3 Deep Moisturising DIY Recipes)

Dry Scalp Treatment

The weather here in the midwest can be so finicky. One day it’s warm, then there's a cold snap...brrr! But you know what? Those warmer days are getting fewer and farther between - soon we'll have snow on our streets thanks to this crazy season for winter storms that just won't quit coming!!

Winter is here, and with it comes dry skin. There are so many amazing body butters (and even more slaves) to keep you moisturised through these cold months! Scratch Mommy has got your back when it comes time for DIY recipes too - just search "body butter" in their blog or click on any link below:

But what about nourishing your scalp? Learn how to do a dry scalp treatment at home!

The cold weather can make your scalp dry, itchy and flaky. Luckily there are some easy steps you can take to keep the symptoms at bay!

Makes sure that when washing orstyling (or both!) hair stays crusty residue off by gently scratching with fingertips before rinsing thoroughly- this will help remove any product buildup which may be causing discomfort

But these shampoos have a lot of yucky ingredients with some nasty side effects. It might seem tempting to grab the bottle off of your favourite store's shelf, but you should know what is in them and how it will affect not just yourself now, or down the line when they start giving out more information on their return policy...

I've got two words for ya: Bad idea! Don't do it unless we give our approval first by asking "What's inside?"

Give your dry scalp a break this time of year with these easy to make masks. All you need are some ingredients that will moisturise and nourish the skin on top, making it perfect for those who have been suffering from shampoo addiction or just want something more natural!

Mash up: To give myself an extra deep treatment session every other day (or even three days), I like using DIY hair mask recipes made out mostly water along side conditioners such as olive oil & honey; protein powder mixed with mayo etcetera


To keep your head and scalp feeling happy during winter, there are many essential oils that you can add to the mix. A few of my favourites include lavender oil for calming effects or Roman chamomile which helps with Shine Control!

  • Tea Tree – We have an endless supply of recipes here on Pronounce and there are about a gazillion different ones that use Tea Tree. It’s one of our favourite oils to keep around!
  • Rosemary – Some people use this plant as an aid in memory and hair loss; it's also considered a symbol of love. The sprigs have been traditionally used at weddings, so you can see why I was drawn to them!
  • Lemon – That’s a lot of lemons! To make one kilo (2.2 pounds) of expressed oil, it takes over 3,000 whole ones—and that doesn't even include the peelings or juice.
  • Cedarwood – The founder of Gyalabs, Alex is a big believer in the healing and purifying power of distilled essential oils. Cedarwood has an earthy scent that's perfect for so many tasks!
  • Lavender – This is one of our favourite oils to use in DIY recipes. It has a very pleasant aroma and can be found all over on Gyalabs, so make sure you check it out!
  • Peppermint – The uses for this oil are countless. Not only can you use it as an antiseptic, analgesic and astringent but also a carminative cholagogue that will help with digestion when taken orally or topically; it's very useful in treating coughs due to its tonifying effect on the digestive fire elementally balancing yin/yang energies while soothing irritability through activity throughout body channels.
  • Geranium – Geranium is a flower that has been used for centuries to heal wounds. Its heavy, sweet floral aroma can be felt in the air and on your skin at once - it will make you feel like there are no problems worth worrying about!
  • Patchouli– Patchouli is not just a scent for hippies. The list of its properties goes on and includes antiseptic, astringent fungicide qualities perfect to add in your dry scalp treatment!

Wash your face after using this nourishing mask with a natural shampoo, if possible. I recommend the PH Balanced Shampoo Recipe!
