DIY: Scalp Spray for Dandruff

Updated: Apr 1

Searching for a natural solution for stubborn dandruff? Dealing with caky buildup can be quite the battle. But fear not! We've created a tried-and-true spray designed to tackle that persistent flakiness. It's something you can easily make at home and we're excited to share the recipe with you.

Let's get to it!

Simple Ingredients You'll Need:

Simple Steps You'll Follow:

  • Grab the spray bottle and pour in 1 cup of distilled water.

  • Add 5-10 drops of tea tree essential oil into the water.

  • Seal the bottle and give it a good shake to mix together

How It Works

Tea tree oil possesses natural anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. When diluted properly, it helps combat fungi, bacteria, and yeast on the scalp, which are commonly associated with dandruff. Its cleansing nature helps in unclogging hair follicles, removing dead skin cells, and promoting a cleaner scalp environment.

Tackling the Buildup

Before diving into your regular shampoo routine, consider a pre-treatment. Grab that DIY tea tree oil spray and spritz it directly onto your scalp. Massage it in, and allow it to sit for a minute. Now, if you're facing an impressive amount of dandruff buildup, consider gently removing it with a fine-tooth comb or a specialized skin spatula. Ensure your scalp is damp to help loosen the flakes. Be extremely gentle to avoid causing irritation or injuring the scalp. Once you've completed this, proceed with your regular shampoo routine.
