Coconut oil is another quick fix for that itchy hairline. The oil will help trap the moisture in your hair that it desperately needs to stay hydrated. As a bonus, this will prevent the dryness from spreading.

It is best to get about 2 or 3 tsp of coconut oil, rub it in your hands until it melts, and massage it into the affected area. Add some essential oils to the mix, like lavender or tea tree, for extra relief.
