How to Rid Your Scalp of Dandruff Using Olive Oil

There are many people who suffer from an itchy scalp and dandruff, but are looking for a more natural solution than the typical department stores offer. Traditional dandruff shampoos are filled with harsh chemicals that can sometimes do a scalp more harm than good. Luckily, there are natural dandruff solutions if you know where to look. One of the more popular solutions is to use olive oil.

Treating your scalp with olive oil is simple. All you need to do is massage enough oil into the roots of your hair to thoroughly cover your scalp. Once applied, wrap your hair in a towel or shower cap, and let the oil set for around 30 minutes before washing it out. Take care when washing out the oil, however, because it can create very slippery shower conditions.

If you'd like to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, use a little extra olive oil and massage it through your entire length of your hair instead of just your scalp area. This has the added benefit of leaving your hair naturally soft and shiny looking, with little added effort.

Just a word of warning - because olive oil isn't as harsh as chemically medicated dandruff shampoos, it can take longer to see significant results. Because of this, some people find it more beneficial to use a store-bought dandruff shampoo for the initial treatment, before switching to olive oil to naturally maintain a dandruff-free scalp.

If you've been looking for a way to get rid of dandruff, but would like to avoid the harsh chemicals found in traditional dandruff shampoos, why not give olive oil a try? It's worked wonders for many people who have tried it and has the added benefit of being both a natural and cost-effective dandruff treatment.
