Easy Treatment for Dry, Itchy Scalp

*Oh, hi there! This post contains affiliate links. Affiliate links are indicated with an asterisk. 

I have scalp psoriasis that’s almost entirely controlled by my diet but I occasionally get some discomfort and itchiness. Here are the two all natural, DIY treatments that help keep my hair and scalp healthy and comfortable.

First, I keep a glass spray bottle filled with diluted Apple Cider Vinegar (50/50 ACV and distilled water) in my shower. No need to go out and buy a glass spray bottle (they can be hard to find, and pricey!) … just screw a spray trigger onto your apple cider vinegar bottle! The bottle openings are the perfect size. Mind. Blown.

After shampooing and conditioning (or sometimes after shampooing but before applying conditioner), I spray the mixture onto my hair as well as concentrating a few sprays directly onto my scalp by parting my hair in a few places around my head. I let it sit on my scalp for a few minutes before rinsing out. I do this every time I wash my hair, which is about twice a week. It helps calm any itchiness and redness. (Not surprising since it also works this way on bug bites!)

Secondly, about every other week I apply this oil treatment before I get in the shower:
