One of the very best ways to get rid of a dry itchy flaky scalp is using a homemade coconut milk oil hair mask. It will help hydrate your scalp and hair so they dandruff can go away and stay away. This mask even helps treat spit ends, hydrate dry hair, and help add shine and bounce to hair again.
The natural ingredients you will need to make the coconut milk oil hair mask are about 1 cup of coconut milk, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, and 10 drops of your favorite scented essential oil. Coconut milk can be bought in small 200ml (i think?) boxes at the supermarket, so you just need to use one box per application. Of course, fresh pressed santan is still the best so if you have that, use it!
The way to make the coconut milk oil hair mask is by pouring the 1 cup of coconut milk, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, and 10 drops of your favorite scented essential oil into a small mixing bowl. After you combined the ingredients together until you get a slightly thick creamy white coconut hair mask. Now this hair mask is very runny, but it works wonderfully. Once the mask is made you can use it right away.
Now when you are ready to use the coconut milk oil hair mask to help treat and heal your dry scalp and hair you are going to want to put on an old tee shirt you do not mind getting dirty. You will also need a tight fitting shower cap. After you will tilt your head back over your bathtub and pour the hair mask directly into your hair. You do not need to get your hair damp or wet first if you do not want too. Some people like too, but it isn't needed. As you are pouring the mask into your hair work the mask into your hair and massage your scalp with it for a couple of minutes to make sure you hair and scalp is completely soaked and drenched in it. After place all of your hair into the shower cap and place it over the top of your hair so the coconut milk oil hair mask doesn't drip all over you. Leave the mask in your hair and on your scalp for about 30 minutes to an hour. If you really want to help hydrate your hair even more you can sit in the sun on a sunny day and allow the top of your head to get all warm so the coconut milk and oils can soak into your scalp and help moisturize it better. I love the cooling sensation that coconut milk has on your scalp... it's so refreshing and a great way to de-stress!
Then once you are done with the hair mask you will need to get into the shower and rinse you hair right out. This will take several minutes too do. After you will want too take a good shampoo and wash your hair like you would usually do. You may need to wash your hair twice, but this is perfectly fine. You may even feel you need to use your daily conditioner as well after shampooing. Once you have done all this pat your hair dry and let it air dry. You will notice as your hair dries it will be much softer, shinier, and manageable again. Your scalp will not feel itchy or dry and the flakes will be gone. If you have a really dry scalp you should use this coconut milk hair mask at least twice a week.
I hope this coconut milk oil hair mask helps those of you out there suffer from a dry itchy scalp and dry hair. I wish you all some very happy hair days ahead of you.
