So, you can utilize antibacterial and anti-inflammatory oil to moisturize your scalp. Coconut oil or tea tree oil would be good options. You can simply apply a small amount of coconut oil or tea tree oil on your scalp then massage it so that your scalp can absorb the moisture and nutrition. Then, you can leave it for 10 minutes and rinse it.
