But, you also need to hear some good news: DIY scalp scrubs are the ultimate solution! They help reduce dandruff, promote hair growth and replenish your scalp, all of this without burning a hole in your pockets.
So, if you’ve almost given up on your hair… just hang in there! We’ve got you covered with 3 bomb DIY scalp scrub recipes that will banish your slow hair growth woes forever! Just head straight to your kitchen now, will you? That’s where your scrub ingredients are.
Scalp scrub #1: Lemon + sea salt + olive oil
Mix together two tablespoons of sea salt, lemon juice and olive oil each in a bowl. Make sure your hair is damp before you go in with the scrub. Massage the scrub into your scalp for a few minutes; this will help boost blood circulation. Rinse well with lukewarm water, then follow it up with shampoo and conditioner.
Lemon juice being a natural chemical exfoliator helps slough off dead skin and loosen any oil that is blocking hair follicles. Olive oil is packed with vitamins A and E that hydrate your scalp. And sea salt reduces dandruff flakes, soaks up excess moisture and promotes circulation. This deep cleansing scalp scrub is both simple and effective.
Scalp scrub #2: Salt + ACV + coconut oil + honey
Combine together one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and coconut oil each, half a cup of sea salt and one teaspoon of honey. Mix them together in a bowl and stir well. Take a tablespoon of the mixture and gently massage it into your scalp, making sure your hair is damp first. Let the scrub sit in your scalp for about 10 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. Follow it up with shampoo and conditioner.
The anti-fungal properties of apple cider vinegar help kill fungus in the scalp, while coconut oil and honey nourish the scalp, and sea salt prevents oiliness and promotes hair growth. All these ingredients come together to make for a great detoxifying remedy for your scalp.
Scalp scrub #3: Sugar + deep conditioner + olive oil + honey
Mix together one tablespoon of sugar, honey and olive oil each, and three tablespoons of deep conditioner. Apply the mixture to wet hair. First, massage the mixture into your scalp and then coat your hair from root to tip, making sure you cover each and every strand. Cover your head with a shower cap and let the mixture sit for about 30 minutes. Rinse it with water and follow it up with shampoo and conditioner to avoid oily roots.
Sugar helps exfoliate your scalp without being too harsh on your skin. Olive oil and honey nourish your hair and strengthen hair follicles, and deep conditioner helps moisturise the scalp and reduce dandruff. This nourishing scalp scrub is also the perfect solution for those with sensitive skin.
