Keeping our scalps healthy can be a key step in maintaining healthy hair.  However, as the weather becomes colder, our scalps can become dry and itchy.  We asked a few of our favourite bloggers to give us their top tips on keeping flake-free this season...

 

 

 

Witch Hazel

Care Witch Hazel

 

 

 

 

"Witch Hazel works wonders for me if I have braids or just haven't found the time to wash my hair yet. I'd apply witch hazel to a cotton ball and rub it through my scalp. This not only stops the itch, but it also prevents it, and attributes to the longevity of your hairstyle."

Moisture

Head and Shoulders 2 in 1 Itchy Scalp Care

 

 

 

  

"Keeping your hair moisturised helps so much as well.  My ride or die is Head and Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Conditioner.  It's very moisturising and leaves your scalp itch-free and your hair soft as ever."

Oils

Sunny Isle Jamaica Black Castor Oil

 

 

 

"Make sure you find an oil for your scalp that your skin will absorb.  Test oils (Coconut, Shea Butter, Argan oil, etc.) on your hands to see if your skin will absorb it.  If it moisturisers your hands, it will do the same for your scalp."

- Sharon, Nappy Hair Nation

Coconut Oil

Perfectly Pure Extra Virgin Pure Coconut Oil

 

 

"Befriend coconut oil. That stuff is truly magical. Not only can you use it on your body, it's great for maintaining a healthy scalp."
