Dry Scalp

I was suffering from a dry itchy scalp and have tried special shampoo's and even put olive oil on my head to stop it. Those things would work for a day or two but it always came back and was driving me crazy. I was on pinterest and decided to see if I could find a better solution. I came across a pin that had Listerine as the solution. It sounded outrageous but I decided to click on the link found this blog that explained just how it worked. I was at the end of my rope and decided it was worth a try. Her Blog The Beauty Department said to add oil but I chose to just use straight Listerine. I was afraid it would burn like it does in your mouth but it didn't burn at all. I put about 1/4 cup of Listerine in a small travel size shampoo bottle and add it to the scalp all over my head, especially the driest areas. I left it on for 5-10 minutes and then washed my hair like I normally do. I couldn't believe how soft and silky my hair felt.  I also googled it and found that the reason it works is because there is an ingredient in Listerine that kills fungus. After I blow dried my hair I noticed it also got rid of  all the build up that was on my hair. I continued to do this every other day for 5 days. I couldn't believe how well it worked and I tell everyone about it because it is the only thing that worked for me. I don't want you to think your scalp will never itch again but it will definitely does better than any other products out there on the market. If you are suffering from the same thing try this and if it doesn't work go see your dermatologist because it could be something worse. If you try it let me know what you think.
