Homemade Scalp Treatment With Mayonnaise

When your scalp becomes overly dry and irritated, it can cause the scalp to itch and flake off into dandruff. Although there are many over-the-counter scalp treatments for itchy or flaky scalp, they often contain strong chemicals that many sensitive individuals may react to. One solution is to use a natural form of treatment to scalp irritation, such as making a nourishing scalp mask from regular mayonnaise combined with olive oil.
