Detoxing your scalp is super easy, feels great, and will leave your head ready to produce healthy, beautiful hair! The scalp detox will help exfoliate the scalp and remove any build up from oils or products so your scalp can breathe. The mask also works to take the toxins out of your hair follicles, roots, oil glands, and scalp.
To make the mask, you’ll need:
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon of cinnamon powder
- Mix all of the ingredients together and apply it to your scalp.
- Using your fingertips, gently massage your scalp in a circular motion.
- Place a shower cap on so that your hair and scalp are covered completely.
- Leave it on for 10-15 minutes.
- Shampoo and condition, as usual
Massaging your scalp with your fingertips helps to increase circulation and works to remove any dead skin cells, which could be clogging your pores. This detox helps to keep your scalp healthy and keeps buildup and oil from polluting your hair follicles.
Our Silky Cleanse and Silky Conditioner are great options to use after doing a scalp detox. They work together to re-hydrate, repair, revive your hair. They also balance the pH of your hair and leave it looking shiny and healthy!
A final tip is to try using an apple cider vinegar rinse after shampooing and conditioning. To do this, mix 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water. Make sure to follow that ratio because using too much vinegar could result in a burning sensation on your scalp. Using the vinegar as a rinse will help kill bacteria that cause dandruff and itchy scalp while leaving your hair with an extra shine!
