Buildup on the scalp and hair can be cleaned with natural lavender shampoos and conditioners. Lavender stimulates the scalp and heals dry patches caused by buildup and naturally cleanses away excess dirt and oil without causing irritation. Sufferers of this condition can use a dime-sized portion of lavender shampoo and a dime-sized portion of lavender conditioner for best results.
For heavy scalp buildup, a clarifying shampoo is also an option. Clarifying shampoos work to strip the hair of heavy buildup caused by thick shampoos and conditioners. It is important to use clarifying shampoos in moderation, as they dry out the hair when used on a daily basis. Pantene' Truly Natural clarifying shampoo is one option, as it contains natural ingredients and is free of parabens that can lead to additional buildup.
Scalp buildup occurs when the hair is not rinsed properly during washing, and it is also occurs during dry weather conditions. Additionally, scalp buildup is often confused with a medical condition called psoriasis. Psoriasis presents itself as oily patches on the scalp and hair. It is a chronic condition that tends to flare up during dry weather and periods of stress. Scalp psoriasis is treatable with medical shampoos and conditioners, as well as natural lavender oil.
