What is a home remedy for itchy scalp?
Ok so your scalp is either too dry or too oily. Make SURE you do not get the two confused. Check between hair shafts for small, greasy, white flakes. If so you have too oily skin. I suggest not conditioning your scalp for a few days, and/or using dandruff shampoo. Cheap drugstore brand is effective. If your scalp is maybe a little bit red or you notice more flakey white particles in your hair, you have a dry scalp. I would massage olive oil into your scalp, leave for ten minutes, then rinse. Best luck!!!

I used to have the same problem. I don't know about you but I would even scratch to the point of even bleeding. I suffered from dry scalp for years among other dry skin p…roblems. First I tried the dermatologist, who gave me Hydrocortisone or Steroid creams and shampoos, at first they seemed like they were helping but then it came back worse, almost with a vengeance. Almost all doctors and dermatologists recommend them. I later found out that they are hash chemicals with side effects (thin skin to the point of bleeding, they burn the skin, weaken the immune system and more). So learn from my mistakes and STAY AWAY. A lot of people don't realize that most scalp problems are caused by the shampoos we use. Most shampoos we use today are nothing more than glorified detergents. It's horrible, it strips the hair and the scalp of the PH balance and can cause damage. It strips the hair and scalp of everything good and everything bad. Even people who have been using the same shampoo and suddenly get dry scalp, it's because there's not always an immediate effect, it can have an accumulative effect I tried Tar shampoos(with real tar) that was really bad. All kinds of over-the-counter (Head and Shoulders)products, did nothing, maybe made it worse, they also had bad/damaging chemicals. I also tried over the counter creams I used (Eurcein to name one of many) had mineral oil in it which is the by-product of making gasoline from petroleum. It's Cheap and HORRIBLE for the skin. And the sad thing is Doctors recommend it. Finally after years of suffering I found a product that works for me. I was so leery on trying new products(I had tried so many others). I asked them what made their products so special. They explained to me that the skin responds to natural in a simple example (If you eat healthy foods you body will respond well if you don't it won't). They told me how the skin has 7 layers (3 main ones) and that you need something that's Trans-dermal (travels though the seven layers) and will work it's way up to unpack dry dead and damaged cells and restore balance. They went on to explain that the skin needs natural products and only that but the right formulation, and to add no dyes,colorants,fragrances. They told me how they have a 95% success rate and people see significant results in 3-5 days(I literally did not believe them). Still hesitant I decided to finally give their products a try. I was amazed, shocked and relieved all at the same time. In 7 days my dry scalp was 80% healed, in 2 weeks or less you could not tell I even had problematic skin. I used to itch to the point of sometimes breaking skin, the itching stopped in less than 2 days. I suffered for years with no relief, now that I have my skin repaired I am telling everyone. I've told hundreds who have suffered, and tried their products and they truly have a 95% success rate.

I have had a madly itchy scalp for the last 6 weeks and I am up to week 12 week of my pregnancy. I feel like pulling my hair out... I suggest get a pregnancy test quic…k!
Just wash it already! Rude answer. f First try a different shampoo, I would suggest using Baby Shampoo to see if that helps. You could also try using Scalpicin after shampo…oing. You may just need to keep you head clean(shampoo every day) to alleviate the problem.
a warm bath with baking soda worked very well for my son.
I have an itchy scalp and my best solution is to use selsun blue
Interestingly enough, eating honey that is harvested in your area is a natural allergy medicine. It has to do with the bees pollinating the local flowers which contribut…e to your allergy. It's something to think about.

Had a dog with dry skin issues also. Vet suggested oatmeal baths. Worked very well for her. Can find dog shampoos with oatmeal in it already.
My dog has been experiencing bad itching, which causes his fur to fall of in the places he scratches. i put polly-sporen on his wounds and it stops him from going near, but te…nds to lick it off, nothing else can help. so go to the vets and get per scribed pills

Try a oatmeal bath and some baby lotion
Change shampoo=with flakes change to dandruff, without use something for dry hair since your scalp is too dry or shampoo less often
