Having an itchy scalp is the literally the most annoying thing ever! Not as annoying as running out of coffee but it’s close. If your itchy scalp is anything like mine we have to get rid of it. Are you the person that has 10 different shampoos and conditioners because all the sudden that shampoo and conditioner stops working? I mean like won’t lather up and you get a film in your hair once it’s blow dried? Me too! Let’s go over ways to kick this to the curb all together.
How to Get Rid of Itchy Scalp: Ashes
So trying new products after dealing with itchy scalp can be tough because who wants to spend money on one more thing that will just end up not working. How about trying a powder or coconut oil to help combat itchy scalp? I’ve done the coconut oil mask and rinse them out in the morning. It for sure leaves my hair super soft but the itch is back in a day or two. I got in introduced to the powder called Ashes. I did get it on Amazon but my friend the Organic Bunny talks about and sells it as well. So how it works is you put your shampoo in your hand. Take the powder and sprinkle it over your shampoo. Put a hand full of water over the powder so it started bubbling up. Then shampoo your hair like normal. It works for itchy scalp and scalp buildup. I do for both whenever I feel my shampoo not working anymore and it works again great the next time.
Your amount of sugar intake is huge for the itchy scalp factor. I know who wants to cut back on the amount of sugar they eat. I have found that once you have been off of it when you try it again it really doesn’t taste as good. Trust me 5 years ago I would have yelled at myself for saying that because I LOVE candy. Try eating foods that contain Stevia (If you have a ragweed allergy might want to double check this one as stevia is apart of the ragweed family), or MonkFruit. With monkfruit you can make any recipe what ever the amount of sugar it calls for put the same amount in monkfruit. It tastes really good. Try switching just that one ingredient and see how that goes for ya.
Now water could probably be a post all in itself. But think about right now just this week how much water have you drank a day? Our bodies need so much water it’s crazy. They say to drink half of you body weight in oz but I’m learning to just drink water all day. I may switch it up to coffee, or tea but water is what you will see in my hand 90% of the day. Water really does a lot of things but it help flash things out and that can help get the stuff out that is making your itchy scalp happen in the first place.
So that is it! Use powder like ashes, cut out your sugar intake and try something new in it’s place, and then drink water. These three things alone can be tough but for sure can change your life if you embrace it.
