Scrubbing your hair does wonders for your scalp. It’s another something you should add to your regimen at least once a week. There are so many benefits to doing a scrub which include:
- Helps remove dead skin cells
- Gets the blood flowing which promotes hair growth
- Removes excess oils and impurities
- It feels really good 🙂 A massage for your hair is always wonderful
I ran across a website with so many great natural recipes for hair scrubs. Depending on what you are looking to accomplish you can find the recipe that is right for you.
This is my favorite:
Basic Scalp Scrub Recipe
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2-3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
In a small bowl mix ingredients. Add enough sugar to make a thin paste Do not heat the oil as this will melt the sugar.
To Use: Wet hair in shower.If you have styling products in hair, apply a little conditioner to make hair more pliable, rinse. Take a heaping scoop of the scrub and apply to scalp, separating hair to reach entire scalp. In circular motion, scrub the scalp with the mixture for 5 minutes. Rinse well, then shampoo and condition hair as normal.
Choose what will work for you and experiment with other scrubs based on your knowledge of essential and carrier oils! Happy scrubbing!
