I suffer on a pretty regular basis from an itchy, dry and dandruff ridden scalp.
Definitely not something to be proud of, but hey it happens to the best of us.
Dandruff is the most common hair and scalp issue faced by men and women of all ages, worldwide.
Basically it’s the shedding of dead skin from a dry, extremely oily or microbe-infected scalp which results in redness, itchiness, flaking and irritation of the scalp.
Ugh… It’s truly awful, I have tried so many ways to cure it but it always comes back.
I have bought basically every commercial dandruff shampoo and conditioner possible.
I have gone to a fancy salon and paid to have them test my scalp, can we say ouch!
Not only was it painful but expensive too.
It helped temporarily but it always comes back.
More recently I have been using coconut oil on my scalp whenever I see an issue arising and that seems to stop it in its tracks.
Definitely works better than anything else I have tried.
To restore your scalp you have to equal out the moisture balance, a dry and dehydrated scalp produces excess sebum which consequently blocks the hair follicles.
This attracts microbes and leads to bacterial and fungal infections of the scalp, causing Seborrheic Dermatitis (excessive oil from the glands), Psoriasis and dandruff.
As I talked a little bit above, the problem can sometimes be resolved by resorting to regular anti-dandruff treatments like the use of anti-dandruff shampoos, spas, oiling, ketaconazole medications, dietary modifications etc.
Regular oiling of the scalp helps improve blood circulation and provides the vital essential oils and nutrients required to hydrate and nourish the skin.
This helps in treating and preventing dandruff to create healthy, strong and beautiful hair.
The oil known to be the ideal, cost-effective, efficient and natural remedy to treat the problem of dandruff is coconut oil.
The edible oil categorized as a superfood is extracted from the flesh of a coconut.

A perfect dandruff coconut oil treatment for all your hair needs and wants.
Coconut oil possesses anti-fungal properties that help to fight the problem of dandruff effectively and efficiently.
Excessive dryness stimulates the hairs oil glands to produce larger amounts of oil to try and balance out the moisture levels of the scalp.
This excess oil gets stuck and built up in the hair follicles to clog the same, increases dirt and dead skin buildup on the scalp and attracts the fungus called Malassezia fur fur.
This yeast bacterial fungus attaches itself to the hair shafts and causes dandruff.
The anti-microbial property of coconut oil aids in removing and preventing the growth of this fungus on the scalp, thereby healing and curing dandruff and restoring the health of the hair to make it look more voluminous and beautiful.
