Flag this photoOften people mistake dandruff for a dry scalp. Dandruff is the result of a combination of sebum, an oil from the hair shaft, and sweat. Because of the sweat, dandruff flakes can range from white to yellow in color. In contrast, people who suffer from dry scalps have smaller white flakes. Although many of the same products can be used to treat the two issues, increasing scalp moisture still needs to be addressed on its own.Related Searches:Difficulty:EasyInstructions Things You'll NeedAlmond oilAloe veraLavender oilVitamin E oilVitamin B oilApple cider vinegarGentle shampooSuggest Edits1
Use shampoo only once every couple of days. Shampoo rids your hair of natural oils and dehydrates the skin on your head. Purchase a gentle shampoo and use it sparingly. After you have washed your head with shampoo, rinse with 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar over the period of a week.2
Combine 1 ounce of almond oil with a pinch of lavender oil, vitamin E oil and vitamin B oil. Massage it into the scalp for two minutes. Repeat every other day for a month.3
Massage aloe vera into your scalp. Do not rinse it off after it dries. By using aloe vera, you are reintroducing moisture into the skin.Tips & Warnings
