5 Natural & Best Ways To Treat Scalp Acne!

Have you ever tried out a new hair shampoo, gel, or serum only to be left with a head full of pimples?

While your scalp is an awkward place to get acne, it’s not unheard of. But there are many reasons beyond product irritation that have led to the development of bumps.

The scalp can be harder to treat topically because the hair gets in the way. The good news is that scalp acne is often much less noticeable because the hair covers its appearance.

Many people just let them be. While lesions on the scalp can tend to be tender and sore, they usually clear on their own within a week or so.

Here are a few remedies to get rid of Scalp Acne!

1. Nutmeg – Grind some nutmeg and mix it with 4-5 tablespoons of milk. Leave it on for 30-45 minutes. Wash it off with a mild shampoo.

2. Garlic – While it may leave your hair not smelling so good, they are very effective. Just grind some garlic cloves and apply on the affected areas. Keep it for 30 minutes and wash it off with a mild shampoo.

3. Tea tree oil – Tea tree oil has great anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Mix some tea tree oil with olive oil and massage it on your scalp. Wash off with a mild shampoo.

4. Neem – The best tree with the maximum anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Wash some neem leaves properly. Boil them for 30 minutes. Then strain the water in a bowl and use the leaves to make a paste. Apply this paste to your scalp. Wash off with water or a mild shampoo.

5. Lemon – Applying lemon juice is one of the best home remedies for treating scalp pimple. Lemon juice cleans the scalp, treats acne and pimple breakouts.

6. Papaya – Grind a slice of papaya with its seeds and skin. You could also mash ripe papaya to make a thick paste of it. Apply it on the scalp pimple to get instant relief from it.
