I always say that if your scalp is not a priority then you might as well not even have a regimen. The scalp is after all the foundation of your healthy hair journey so staying aware of what how your scalp feels and reacts to certain things is very important.
The other day one of you sent me a question about getting rid of dandruff using an all natural solution and I think I found one. In this post, I have a pretty simple and fun scalp scrub recipe perfect for all of us who have dealt with dandruff at any point in our lives.
Olivia Rose is a beauty guru on youtube and her recipes are super simple and very effective because of the ingredients she chooses.
For this scrub, you will need 4 Ingredients
10 tbsp of sugar
5 tbsp of grapeseed oil
3 drops of rosemary essential oil
3 drops of lemon essential oil
How to make the mix (Via video notes)
Mix the sugar and the oil together. Add 3 drops of each essential oil and mix again. Work in your bathroom to avoid any mess.
Apply the product to the scalp section by section and then gently massage it, make sure your hair is dry. Leave the product on your hair to let the essential oils actives to do their job on your scalp. Rinse your hair and shampoo after then condition as normal!
Things to note
Lemon Oil is anti fungal and detoxifying which is what makes it great for getting rid of scalp problems like dandruff. Rosemary oil is great for hair growth and preventing hair loss which makes it an amazing addition to the scrub. Finally, grapeseed oil is a superior carrier oil great for overall hair health and hair growth.
I would recommend that you do a skin test of each oil to ensure that you are not allergic before adding it to your mix. Additionally, if you are pregnant or nursing I would say avoid the scrub altogether.
Finally, watch this video demonstration of Olivia mixing the scrub as well as using it on her hair:
Oh and by the way, when you use the scrub on your hair, feel free to rub it all over your body too!
