Itchy Scalp? Dandruff? Hair Lacking Lustre? Here’s how you can make your own protecting mask to help soothe and moisturise a dry and irritated scalp. Click to discover how.

The dryness of winter has a tendency to suck the moisture out of our bodies, leaving our areas like our scalp cracked, dry and irritated. This can lead to our hair looking and feeling dull and lifeless. A dry scalp can also lead to irritating dandruff.  

Luckily nature can yet again lend a helping hand with an array of oils that can help to treat these issues. If you’re suffering from an itchy and irritated scalp this winter, try this simple blend as a natural treatment to soothe and calm.

You’ll need:

25ml of Sweet Almond Oil – Probably the world’s most popular Carrier Oil, it’s excellent all over the body but can be particularly effective on hair.

Sweet Almond oil helps reduce inflammation and soothes itchiness and redness of the skin. It’s often a wise choice in massage for treating psoriasis and eczema because of this. Gently massage through your scalp and allow this amazing oil to nourish your hair and skin. Sweet Almond oil also promotes hair growth and thickness so it’s a great choice for any hair mask.

5 Drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil – Another incredibly popular natural ingredient. Here at Amphora we think that every house should have a bottle of Tea Tree in the first aid kit due to its antiseptic and bactericidal properties!

Tea Tree also has many wonderful uses for hair. Little wonder that it’s used so widely in various shampoo, conditioners and hair treatments. Its antifungal properties make it extremely useful for treating dandruff and inflammation of the scalp.

It’s a great oil for helping cleanse and clarify without stripping natural oils. This makes it a good choice for hair that’s prone to becoming greasy. Tea Tree oil will get to work on the microorganisms which contribute to a flaky scalp and dandruff. This in turn will help prevent hair loss, helping you to maintain both a healthy scalp and hair which has volume and shine!

You can either use the Sweet Almond Oil alone or add the Tea Tree for an even more effective treatment. Tea Tree Essential Oil should be diluted before application to the body.
