This is the only thing I can recommend for hair and scalp problems: Click here! You should try!

I don’t want you to go through this, that’s why I’m going to ask you to spare no efforts to get rid of your crusty and flaky scalp by using the techniques you are going to find in this post, trust me, they work, many people have used them and they got amazing results.

I’m sure that you will get amazing results as well, but first, let me tell you about the reasons why you have a crusty and flaky scalp in the first place.

You have this condition because you are either suffering from fungal/bacterial problems or your scalp is extremely dry!

Yes, there are many reasons why you probably have a crusty and flaky scalp, but these are the most important ones and in fact, they are the main reasons why people are going to get flaky scalps in the first place, it’s because they have funguses or bacteria all over their scalps trying to munch on it and producing toxins when dividing! Even worse, their scalps are naturally extremely dry!

I’m sure that you have noticed this in the past: when you have a very dry scalp, you will get crusty and flaky particles all over it!

You have to try this natural product before using anything!!! Click here!

It’s not only very disgusting, but it’s also extremely embarrassing, especially if you are interacting with a member of the opposite sex, trust me, I’ve had this happen to me many times, and it feels just horrible!

I used to have this problem in the past, it made me extremely self-conscious and even worse, furious at myself and I just wanted to hide all day long in my house, not go to work or out!

I don’t want this happening to you, this is the reason why you need to know what to do in order to get rid of this problem, and here is the best solution I’ve found in order to get rid of my crusty and flaky scalp as well:

Every day, I want you to first moisturize your scalp, using just warm water for some few days, just apply some few drops of water onto your scalp and massage very gently, when you are done, use a thick towel in order to get rid of as much moisture as possible, then, use this amazing oil blend, it will give you fantastic results and it will also heal your crusty and flaky scalp very rapidly as well:

Mix one teaspoon of olive oil with three drops of peppermint oil and three drops of tea tree oil.

That’s it.

Just massage your scalp with this oil blend for some few minutes, then, leave it on for fifteen minutes, when you are done, rinse using your favorite shampoo.

Trust me, I have suffered from crusty and flaky scalp in the past, and this oil mixture has helped me tremendously, in fact, I have decided to make this website because I’m in love with peppermint oil and I think that it’s the best natural oil you can use for your scalp, it will not only reduce your flakiness, but it will also get rid of your crusty scalp very rapidly.

You should also use peppermint oil if you have hair loss issues: Click here now!

Not only that, but when you add tea tree oil, you will also get rid of funguses and parasites efficiently, which is just amazing.


  1. Hi Chris,

    I have dry flakey scalp only along and just past the hairline. I don’t know what the cause of it is at all. It’s dry and flakes off. It’s the worst after a shower but usually I stand in the mirror once it’s dry with a comb trying to flake it off. It’s extremely embarrassing, I am a redhead so I do have sensitive skin. The shampoo I am currently using is all natural. What treatment do you recommend for me?

  2. Sandra Hudgins says:

    I have dry scalp and parts of my hair is oily. I’ve read that a dry scalp puts your body into overdrive and will produce more oil on your hair. I have a lot of dry scalp in my hair. My ears now are also very dry. This all started 9 months ago when I started menopause. My hair is falling out also. I have no itching on the scalp. I saw a dermatologist about 8 months ago and she gave me some steroids. Did not help my scalp. I need help. I feel like I’m going insane.

    I have scalped head with pus coming out, and forehead swollen. How to heal

    • You can try using tea tree oil, amazing for such issues, of course, you’d have to lower your fat intake to a minimum.

  4. Hi Chris,
    I am 27 years old female. I am facing serious hair loss problem and when I rub my scalp dandruff comes into my nails and few are like granules attached to tip of hair. Now my question is can I use Jamaican black castor oil with peppermint oil? will it work on my thinning hair and flaky scalp?
    please suggest.
    would appreciate your response 🙂

  5. Hi Chris I have a problem that my scalp is smelly although I wash it daily and if I don’t the next day my hair really smells. I have tried tea tree oil and ajwain as well with no luck. Please help.

  6. Is olive oil better than coconut oil?

  7. Yeah I have the crusty stuff too and dermatologists just don’t care. I said myself I feel like there’s fungus involved and they were like “can’t see anything” like if they can’t see it then there’s not a problem. Been struggling for 10 years. It’s my birthday I hope this year I can be free of this problem

  8. Hi Chris,

    I have been suffering with a scalp issue for almost 20 years. I am 34 years old and I can remember having this problem start around the age of 17. I kind of thought it would just go away on its own, but obviously it has not. I was always too embarrassed to talk to anyone about it so i’ve just been dealing with it. I have scabs on my scalp, I can’t remember how it started but it’s gotten worse and has become habit for me to scratch/pick at them (I know this is bad). They aren’t itchy either, it’s just a bad habit. I’m not sure if this is causing hair loss or not. I have a lot of hair, and my hair is pretty thick, I tend to shed anyway, but I may be causing it to happen more, especially when I pick. I saw one of your old posts about using tea tree oil in free & clear shampoo. Do you think this will help me? I already purchased both items and mixed them together today, but haven’t used it yet. I added about 30 drops of the oil to 12 ounces of the shampoo. Hopefully I did this correctly. Please let me know if I used too much tea tree oil so I don’t cause more damage. Thank you in advance for your help!

    • Yes, give it a try, I’m sure it will help you a lot, and please, I know you know this, don’t pick/scratch them.

  9. Hi,
    I am 42 years old, my hair is just past my shoulders it is thin, highlighted blonde (every 5-6 weeks to cover the grey). I used to have quite a lot of hair, but have noticed in the last couple of years that it is thinner, breaks easily and slow to grow. I am currently trying to grow it longer.
    I suffer from scalp psoriasis and have done for over 20 years. It is absolutely horrible having an irritated and itchy scalp, with white flakes on my clothes all the time. The psoriasis has also now come down onto my forehead stressing me out more.
    The dermatologists have given me ointments and creams etc but they help for one day and then it’s back again, some of them cause headaches. I don’t like to use these medications all the time.
    My questions are
    1. Will the peppermint and oils recipe you recommend in another post help with scalp psoriasis?
    2. Is this recipe color safe for blonde highlights?
    3. Is there anything else you recommend for scalp psoriasis that is color safe?
    Thank you very much I appreciate your help.

    • Hello, so sorry to read about your troubles:
      No, it won’t help you, peppermint oil won’t stop your psoriasis problems.
      It’s safe, nothing to worry about.
      If I were you, I’d stop consuming eggs, dairy, fish, meat and processed garbage, I’d stick to a fat free diet which centers around starches, it has helped me a lot.
      Best of luck, if you need anything, don’t hesitate to ask me again.

    The difference between using apple cider vinegar and white vinegar on hair. I think the apple cider vinegar is safer . I have used apple cider vinegar , dilute with water of course. I am going to try the apple cider vinegar dilute with water for my scabs. I have a few and I have been using coconut oil . I was diagnosed with shingles in October and have been having issues with scabbing. I take nueurotin, and vitamin b complex and lysine with garlic , vitamin d and vitamin c. I have tried the DH shampoo and that is okay not bad but I don’t know if I can use the tree tea oil with that shampoo

    • You owe it to yourself to try tea tree oil with your shampoo, it’s very powerful and I’ve seen it improve different skin conditions very rapidly, so, give it a try.

  11. Elaine Montano says:

    shingles came out like a belt…. face, part of the nose, part of the forehead and part of scalp such as a belt . I was very ill. As i mention I am taking the above mention items for my scalp and feel tingling through out the day.

  12. Hi good day, I having problems with my hair its not growing. At all I cut my hair two years ago and its still at the same level can you help me please.

    • Can you please describe your situation in more details, products you are using and your age, type of hair etc …

  13. Audriana says:

    Hi, Chris
    Well I have eczema in my hair about four years now, I had to take a lot of pills, I am not sure if that may be the result of it not growing. My hair is thin and it used to be very thick, and short. Sometime i used natural products like aloe vera, castor oil and a few things for dry scalp like garlic oil, honey and baking soda. What you recommended, using the vinger to wash my hair. Nothing seem to be working.

  14. Patricia W Graham says:

    I put a post on a little earlier but I forgot to ask this question. Can I be allergic to tea tree oil. I tried some from the pharmacy, sure it was not the good stuff and also in shampoo. I am wondering if I am allergic to the tea tree oil or just the ingredients in the shampoo. Why do you recommend white vinegar vs Braggs apple cider with the mother. All the writeups recommend Apple Cider Braggs. I have used different things to try to make my scalp less dry like olive oil, coconut oil and the list goes on. Nothing makes the scabs go away. I am a wreck to say the least. I do not know if this started when I had chemo years ago, I just don’t remember. I never lost my hair with the chemo. We do not eat greasy food. I eat yogurt which I thought was good for you. I don’t know what to do. I have to use some mousse but try to keep it away from my scalp the best I can. My hair is really wavy and wild if I don’t use mousse and dry with a big brush. I have no choice. I have chronic back pain daily so trying to take care of a hair problem daily is so hard on me.

    • I tend to like white vinegar, less smelly, that’s personal though. Have you ever applied a mixture of tea tree oil and olive oil to your skin or scalp? You should try and see for your self, from my experience, not many people are allergic, but be careful though, you may be. Yes, chemo may had a role in your scalp problems! No, dairy is bad for your scalp, skin and hair. Good luck and please, if you have other questions, don’t hesitate to ask me.

  15. Hi Chris,

    Thank you. I will definitely try this remedy. Why do we have to wash off the oils after massaging them in the scalp and for how long can I continue with this treatment?

  16. Suzanne DeCambre says:

    Hello, having read your info, please clarify whether to use Jojoba, Teatree or Peppermint oil to ease the itch and scabbiness of the scalp. My son is now 17yrs and has been battling scalp folliculitis since he was 12 yrs. Having gone to 3 dermatologists, continuous antibiotics and an Accupuncturist, he is now on Roeaccutane as a final effort. We have tried and still incorporate numerous natural topicals eg. Coconut oil, cannabis oil, nutmeg oil, vinegar, baking soda including an anti-inflammatory diet with little relief. He’s now quite thin with a compromised liver.

    I respect your research and passion in learning about hair and scalp/skin problems and solutions. I recommend studying the thyroid, malnutrition (stomach issues/IBS) and its impact on hair loss and the scalp. Hair comes out by the handful and strands become extremely weak and skinny, dry, and course at the same time. I have lost a ton of hair due to the thyroid. Just a suggestion as expanding your knowledge can only help others and broaden our knowledge base! Keep up the good work.

    • Thanks Christine,
      I’ll do my best, right now I’m very busy, but I really felt compelled by your comment, especially that my wife has just removed her thyroids last October.

  18. If daily I should massage my hair with warmwater, followed by oil massage, should I wash it daily?! Doesn’t it dry out the scalp?

    • You can wash it once every three days with shampoo, of course, using shampoo everyday can be disastrous for your scalp and hair growth as well.
