Does your scalp itch in winter? I recently came across this great tip for itchy winter scalp, so I’m subbing for Nicole today to pass it along to all of you. Simply massage 5 to 10 drops of jojoba oil into your scalp before going to bed. Wash your hair in the morning. The jojoba oil balances the pH levels in your scalp, which will banish the itchies, and it won’t leave your pillow greasy.

Don't have this problem as much as I used to but if it crops up, I'm going to try the jojoba oil. Thanks for the tip!

Thanks, I'm going to try this! I usually switch to an expensive dandruff shampoo in the winter, but this seems like a straightforward solution, and I can keep using my regular shampoo and conditioner.
