DIY Pre-Shampoo Treatment for Dry Scalp

Is your scalp always dry? Do you suffer from dandruff? Then a DIY Pre-Shampoo treatment may be the answer! I suffer from dry scalp and dandruff. I try to find ways to help combat my scalp issues. As you know I have been protective styling all summer for weeks at a time, and my dandruff seems to be at bay until around about the 4th week. It’s important to take care of your scalp because healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp.


By now you probably already know all about the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), and how amazing it is for your hair.

I am always researching ways to combat the issues that I have with my natural hair. I research everything! I always find new ways and things to share with you all, in hopes that it might help someone else going through a similar situation. Through research I found a great DIY Pre-Shampoo treatment for dry scalp that’s cost-effective, simple and can be done at home. This DIY treatment helps keep your dandruff at bay.

I am able to keep my dandruff under control by using my own DIY  Pre- Shampoo scalp treatment. Here is what you will need:

  • Mix well & Massage into scalp
  • Cover hair for 30-45 minutes

    I had no idea that t here were pre shampoo hair treatments that could help with dry scalp! I also didn’t realize that apple cider vinegar is so good for your hair. I’ve heard that there are treatments that you can purchase that are even more effective than DIY products like apple cider vinegar, is that true?
