Flaky bumps on your scalp are no coincidence; they are due to funguses, too much sebum, or harsh chemicals on your scalp! And in this post, I’m going to show you what you need to do about them and most importantly, how to prevent them.
At first, we are going to discuss why you have flaky bumps on your scalp?!
Well, the most common reason is your scalp is producing too much sebum, in other words, the fatty substance responsible for making your scalp greasy and protecting it all the time.
Trust me when I tell you that your scalp needs to be greasy, it has to get protection, and the best one in my opening is sebum, the fatty substance produced by your sebaceous glands.
Unfortunately, most people are consuming saturated fats on a daily basis, in fact, most people are addicted to junk food, which is just terrible, and if you would like to get rid of your condition once and for all, you need to change your diet!
I’m sure that this is the most difficult thing you may be required to do in order to get rid of the flaky bumps on your scalp, but it’s very important and if you don’t do it, you are only going to clear the situation for some few days or even some few weeks and then they will come back all over again!
So, let’s talk now about the second cause: bacterial infection.
Sometimes, you may have a bacterial infection in your scalp, this is going to result in flaky bumps all over it, these are usually filled with pus!
I know, it’s very disgusting, but it’s the truth, most people suffering from flaky bumps on their scalps have either clogged hair follicles, the first reason I’ve just talked about, or they have pus filled pimples all over their scalps!
This doesn’t only cause your scalp to become very itchy and sensitive, but it also makes it extremely flaky.
And the third reason is having allergic reactions.
The most common reason for having allergic reactions in your scalp is exposing it to certain chemicals, usually from hair products such relaxers, gels, creams, and even some shampoos.
So, as with almost every post in this website, I highly recommend that you avoid exposing your scalp to such chemicals, most importantly, I want you to stop washing your hair with shampoo or using other products for a minimum of fifteen days, and if you would like to use hair relaxers or hair dyes, then please, avoid this, because they are probably contributing to your flaky bumps on scalp tremendously.
And now, let me show you how to get rid of this condition:
First of all, you will need to rehydrate your scalp properly. Every day, I want you to rinse your hair and most importantly your scalp with warm water for just some few minutes, this will help it relax and also start producing much-needed sebum.
Then, I want you to use the following oil mixture:
Mix one tablespoon of olive oil with three drops of peppermint oil, five drops of tea tree oil, and a teaspoon of castor oil.
Massage your scalp with this amazing oil mixture, and when you are done, wait for at least fifteen minutes, then, rinse your scalp again.
Please, make sure you apply a thick towel and use it as much as possible to get rid of excess fat and moisture.
Please, if you have a question concerning flaky bumps on your scalp, don’t hesitate to ask me, I will be very happy to help you.
