For dry scalp there is a product in drug stores which is called 'KOLESTORAL'. It is a really inexpensive treatment for the scalp and it works. Just follow the directions on the tube.

I not only use vinegar as a rinse/conditioner, I use baking soda for shampoo! It works great! Mix 1 T baking soda to about 1/2 cup water for shampoo; then rinse with 1 T vinegar (apple cider vinegar) to 1-2 cups water for conditioner. My hair has never been softer, shinier, or more manageable! I was amazed, but am so pleased!
And no, your hair does not smell like vinegar, since the vinegar is so diluted and you rinse it out right away. My hair just smells clean!
I use apple cider vinegar after putting conditioner on my length and it washes out nicely without seeming to damage my hair color (I don't artifically color mine). NOTE 3/7/11---actually found out that acv does darken blond hair a bit. switching to lemon juice.
It needs to be noted that white vinegar and lemon juice might have some lightening effects/bleaching effects on hair color. I haven't tried either because I don't desire that effect, but have heard that has happened to people.
Will it leave my hair smelling like vinegar? and can you use it on colored hair without it stripping the color?
There is no need to buy expensive hair rinses. Just rinse your hair with a solution of either lemon juice or vinegar mixed with about 1/2 cup lukewarm water. Pour it through your hair, let it stay for a few minutes, and rinse it out. This will help remove any soap scum, too, and it will leave your hair shiny and healthy looking.
