With an itchy scalp comes discomfort and embarrassment from having to scratch in public or any social situation.
These scalp issues are caused by different conditions—from the simple dandruff, head lice, allergic reaction down to the more serious psoriasis and ringworm infection. An itchy scalp may worsen, affecting the face, ears, armpits and even the chest. Of course, expert care is always recommended and dermatologists will recommend anti-fungal shampoos or oral medications. But why resort to expensive medications, when you can resort to simple and natural means?
The good news is that there are remedies for itchy scalp that you can do in the comforts of your home. These are natural remedies, so you can trust that these solutions will be safe and won’t be harsh on your scalp. Here are 3 Moringa-O2 suggestions on quick fixes for an itchy scalp.
