How to Soothe Scalp Itchiness or Flakes With Rose Water: With A Detailed Video Illustration!

Time needed: 10 minutes.

The Rose Water is an age old remedy using at least since the Romans era. Rose water has long been a household item in many households. But nowadays it has become somewhat of a forgotten item and not given enough credit like it deserves. Rose water does not only smell good but is purifying and cooling too, which makes it an excellent hair refresher especially when you have dandruff or dry flaky scalp.

Dandruff sufferers are always looking for the best anti-dandruff shampoo for dandruff to cure their itchy scalp as well as the flakes on top. However, they sometimes use products that contain ingredients that actually make the condition worse, leading to further irritation and dryness.

Also, scalp itchiness is caused by a dry scalp or flaky scalp. Some people even experience scalp itchiness when they haven’t washed their hair for a few days and the oil is starting to get clogged and can’t come out of the pores anymore. Oily hair also often leads to an itchy scalp, because if you think about it – your hair has had oil from just your head on it already by now, so even if you are putting on extra natural products all over, your hair is still coated with some oil. Therefore, make sure to always start off with clean hair.

That is where rose water comes in handy as it relieves the dryness and itching of scalp and also promotes hair growth. Rose water helps to remove dandruff from the scalp. The natural antioxidants it contains give relief from pain and irritation that you can face due to dandruff and improves the quality of hair. It controls hair fall, stimulates the follicles in order to give the hair a healthy glow, removes dirt, nourishes scalp with deep hydration and repairs damaged hairs and split ends.

Hair typically gets the most attention in terms of beauty and care, but scalp health shouldn’t be ignored. Just like a face mask can help your face, a scalp treatment can help your scalp. Use rose water to improve your scalp’s health, thereby preventing dandruff and itchiness while reducing flakes. Be sure to pin it for future reference.


    Now that your scalp has been cleaned of dry skin and oils, it’s time to start the treatment. Part the hair into sections. Make sure each section covers where the itch is located. Take extra care at the nape of the neck and behind the ears because this skin tends to be especially dry.

    Parting your hair in sections is very important because by doing this you can make sure that you get every part of your head equally covered. You will take more time going through all those sections, but it’s worth taking the time if you want to cure your itchy scalp.

    Do this by pulling the top section forward and away from your other hair. Split it down the middle so that your hair doesn’t mingle with other pieces. This will make it easier for you to apply water or rosewater to each individual strand of hair.

    Rose water is a great solution for dandruff. However, if you want to spray rose water on your scalp because it smells good, sorry to break it to you but you have to get rid of your dandruff first. Rose water is more soothing when you use it immediately after washing your hair.

    You can now spray the rose water in sections, making sure not to spread it on top of your head. This will dilute its effects as intended. This way you can get it to the area that you need it the most.

    The important thing is getting the rose water product on your scalp where all the dead skin cells flake off creating the itchiness we feel so that you can relieve yourself of that discomfort! Making sure you have the right rose water product for hair is an important step in order to help relieve yourself of this problem.

  3. SERUM

    It’s no surprise that dry skin can flake or itch. If you’re dealing with this unpleasant sensation, chances are you’ll want to find relief quickly. One way to diminish the itch caused by dry skin is to apply a hydrating serum right on your scalp and in affected areas.

    It’s important to have a good base to start with. Your serum should leave your scalp feeling moisturized after applying it. If you can’t tell if it’s actually moisturizing your scalp, don’t use it!

    The serum not only moisturizes the scalp, it also helps seal in other ingredients like coconut oil, almond oil, etc.

    The final step is giving your scalp a massage. I don’t know why this works, but it does. I have less flakes when I remember to do it at night before bed. It’s like a mini-spa treatment for the scalp. You don’t need anything to massage with, or to rub. Just use your fingers on the areas where you have some dry skin and run them over your head. The friction of rubbing in circles is all you need!

    You need to saturate the hair with oil and then massage it into the scalp; this will loosen the dirt trapped by the sebaceous secretions. Next, you want to use rose water while dripping it onto your scalp.

    Massage your scalp with rose water to soften the scalp and open up the pores of your skin. This makes the sebum flow. Because of this, there is an added advantage of preventing further hair fall or even promoting hair growth by making the follicle stronger.
