A dry scalp is not only irritating, but it can also be very embarrassing. How many times how you worn a dark colored shirt and noticed tiny white flakes on your shoulders, chest, and sleeves?

If you suffer from a dry scalp, try the following easy hot-oil treatment to help keep the problem under control. You have absolutely nothing to lose other than irritating dry scalp symptoms and embarrassing dandruff.
Anyone who has ever purchased hot-oil scalp treatments from the store knows how expensive they can be, but you don't have to purchase a costly kit in order to give yourself a luxuriously beneficial scalp treatment. This hot-oil treatment will leave your scalp moisturized and your hair silky smooth and deeply conditioned.
To make homemade hot-oil treatment to treat your dry scalp you'll need 3 tablespoons of olive oil, a heat-resistant measuring cup or bowl, a saucepan, a comb, a mirror, and gauze pads or cotton balls. Since oil can permanently stain fabric, you'll also need something to protect your clothing from mishaps.
Begin by measuring the olive oil, and place it a heat-resistant container. Make a mini double-boiler by putting about 3 inches of very hot tap water in a saucepan, and place the container of olive oil in the center. Allow the container of olive oil to sit in the hot water until it's sufficiently heated.
Before applying the hot oil to your dry skin, place a comfortable chair in front of a mirror, and prepare for the treatment. Part your hair one section at a time, and begin applying it sparingly. After applying the oil, use your fingertips to gently massage it into your dry scalp. Better yet, have someone else give you a relaxing massage. Allow the oil to remain on your head for about three hours, and shampoo and condition your hair as usual. Wash it again if necessary, rinse it thoroughly, and style it as usual.
