I’ve tried some crazy things in the name of health and beauty. Take for instance the time I tried implementing wheatgrass shots to my daily diet. If you enjoy that, more power to you. I, on the other hand, am allergic to every type of grass on planet earth (that evidently includes wheatgrass). That story did not have a good ending. In fact, the ending was very sad and itchy.
One of the more innovative practices I’ve adopted is using a scalp scrub. Exfoliation is actually an important part of grooming because your scalp regularly accumulates dead skin, product buildup, and oil. A good scalp scrub will work on both dry and oily hair. The scrub works as a normalizing agent to restore balance to the scalp.
I generally recommend exfoliating your scalp once a week. Some of the benefits of using a scrub include are a reduction in oiliness, alleviation of dryness/itchiness, and volumized hair. Over the past few months, I’ve been able to perfect the recipe for my scalp scrub. Lucky for you, I’m feeling generous. Everyone deserves a good hair day!
Deep Cleansing Scalp Scrub
Yield: 2 uses
Time: 3 Minutes
4 tablespoons coarse sea salt
2 tablespoon lemon juice (add a bit more if you have an oily scalp)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1. Combine all ingredients in a waterproof container (I use a sandwich bag).
2. Mix to combine.
3. Brush or comb hair completely out before showering.
4. Wet hair and apply scrub directly onto the scalp. Working in sections, massaging the scrub into the scalp.
5. Once you have completely exfoliated the scalp, let the scrub rest for about a minute. Rinse well.
6. Shampoo hair, working product into a lather to remove any excess oil from the scalp.
7. Condition ends.
8. Rinse with cool water.
Be sure to blow dry your roots if you want additional volume. It’s never been so easy to make a noticeable difference in the way your hair looks and feels.
