If your scalp is dry and itchy, this soothing shampoo might be the cure. The key ingredients are:
Liquid castile soap – a natural cleanser. I use Dr. Bronner’s baby mild soap for my shampoo.
Aloe vera gel – a cooling anti-inflammatory and moisturizer. Buy the clear kind, not the aloe that’s artificially colored green.
Jojoba oil – a moisturizer.
Combine the ingredients in a bottle and then slowly turn the bottle back and forth to break up the aloe vera gel. I usually leave the bottle on the counter so as I walk past it later in the day, I can shake it up again. Once the aloe is pretty well dissolved into the castile soap – usually within a day – it’s ready to use.
After using the shampoo for about a week you should notice you’re only scratching your head when you’re confused!
