Nat­u­ral ways to cure flaky scalp

Sunday Trust - - TAMBARI - By TAM­BARI


OTRENDS STYLE FASH­ION ften times, our scalp gets so itchy and makes us un­com­fort­able that when you scratch, you find flakes fall­ing out of your hair or ly­ing on the sur­face; which can be em­bar­rass­ing. Here, we share with you some nat­u­ral ways to curb and get rid of that flaky scalp you dread for good.

Bak­ing soda: Bak­ing soda serves as an ef­fec­tive dis­in­fec­tant to clean out any un­wanted dirt ly­ing on your scalp. Us­ing it to ex­fo­li­ate and clean your hair will do the trick in get­ting rid of your flaky scalp once and for all.

Ap­ple cider vine­gar: This serves as ex­cel­lent rem­edy for a flaky scalp. It has anti-in­flam­ma­tory prop­er­ties thereby killing un­wanted bac­te­ria that may cause dan­druff and ul­ti­mately lead to flaky scalp. It also serves as a great con­di­tioner af­ter sham­poo­ing.

Lemon juice: Sim­i­lar to ap­ple cider vine­gar, its acid­ity serves a great pur­pose of fight­ing bac­te­ria and soothes itchy scalp. Ide­ally, it should only be used once in a while as it can al­ter the Po­ten­tial of Hy­dro­gen (PH) of your scalp; and you do not want that.

Tea tree oil: This oil is ba­si­cally the holy grail of all oils. It’s truly amaz­ing. Mas­sag­ing a lit­tle amount into your scalp will get rid of your flaky wor­ries for good. It is sooth­ing and stim­u­lates hair growth at the same time.

Av­o­cado: Its mois­tur­is­ing prop­er­ties serve as a great so­lu­tion to itchy and flaky scalp. Us­ing av­o­cado with some honey and olive oil makes an ex­cel­lent hair mask. Not only does it get rid of the itch and flak­i­ness, it also nour­ishes and re­stores lus­tre and bounce to your hair.

I have a friend who has been mar­ried for four years and has not con­ceived. Her hus­band told me it was toi­let in­fec­tion which they had been treat­ing with tra­di­tional medicine. Re­cently she was di­ag­nosed with fi­broid.

– Williams, Abuja.

First we are to know the size of the fi­broid. If it’s big enough to be felt through the ab­domen, then there may be need for surgery. But be­fore then, lab­o­ra­tory and ra­di­o­log­i­cal tests must be con­ducted. This in­cludes HSG and also sperm fluid anal­y­sis. Treat­ing toi­let in­fec­tion is not the so­lu­tion.

Let me use this op­por­tu­nity again to ex­plain that toi­let in­fec­tion is not a cause of in­fer­til­ity. So many peo­ple have wasted money and time on treat­ment of toi­let in­fec­tion in­stead of look­ing for the causes of in­fer­til­ity. Tell them to see a gy­nae­col­o­gist.
