Matcha Hair Rinse for Flaky Scalp

by Marge Maghoney

From my last post, I'd like to keep the theme going on how to have a simpler, cleaner and greener 2016 with a steady stream of posts on natural, earth friendly ways to better ourselves and simplify our way of living. Not everything will be related to Matcha but since this is a Matcha Skin blog, expect to see a good share of Matcha based alternatives.
Today, we'll tackle a common winter probem of dry, flaky scalp. Because of the cold and lack of moisture during this season, you find your skin drier tha usual. So you use your lip balms more than you normally do, apply a thicker cream instead of your light summer lotion and sometimes even battle a dryness on your scalp which leads to embarrassing scratching, itchiness and flakes falling on your clothes.
Instead of simply relying on dandruff shampoo that doesn't really show any significant change even after several weeks of use, there is a much better, more effective way of putting an end to this problem. Aside from water, it only requires 2 ingredients that you may already have in your kitchen -- apple cider vinegar and Matcha.
Vinegar is known to be a killer conditioner but few know that apple cider vinegar is also an effective cure for flaky scalp as it helps restore its Ph level and dislodge the flakes. 
To make the concoction, thoroughly mix half a teaspoon of Matcha with a cup of warm water. You might want to microwave a cup of water for 30 minutes, completely dissolve the Matcha powder and let it cool until it feels good enough to touch. The Antioxidants in Matcha aid in further dislodging the flakes. 
Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and mix well. Massage this mixture on your head and leave for an hour. Wash off with shampoo. Your hair will look lustrous and all the itching will be gone. If you have a severe case of dry scalp, repeat the following week and each week thereafter until you've completely gotten rid of it.
