The problem in a nutshell
Dry scalp is a problem that appears when your scalp’s natural moisture defences are damaged, causing essential moisture to escape.

So, you need to put moisture back. And there are many home remedies people try to do it.

Coconut oil or olive oil – will they work?
Proponents of coconut and olive oil as natural remedies claim that by moisturizing the scalp, they help to restore scalp health and reduce the symptoms of dry scalp.

There’s something to the theory too – coconut oil is a good moisturizer; many cultures around the world use natural oils like it to care for their skin or hair.
