DIY Itchy Scalp Home Remedy

Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links.

Along with cold weather comes itchy skin and that includes your scalp. It’s not easy to rub lotion onto your scalp so I found an easy Itchy Scalp Home Remedy!

The best part about this remedy is that many of us already use it on a daily basis. All you need is Listerine mouthwash!

That’s right, the same thing you use to kill bacteria in your mouth you can use to cure that itchy scalp (and even dandruff too). Not everyone who has an itchy scalp has dandruff but they usually go hand in hand.

So next time your scalp itches try this:

  1. Place some Listerine in a spray bottle and spray all over at the root of your hair (near the scalp).
  2. Leave in your hair for a few minutes then rinse.

Don’t dilute the Listerine because this will make the remedy less effective.

Why does this work?

Well an itchy scalp is often caused by oil and sweat which produces bacteria. Since the ingredients in Listerine kill bacteria, you are left with  a bacteria free scalp which will cure the itching.

Note: Do not use this if you have open sores or lesions on your scalp. This will cause irritation and a burning sensation.
