It’s always the same for me this time of the year, I get extremely dry scalp, it’s insane! I guess you can blame the weather, but it’s extremely aggravating. I wanted to try some at home DIY and this one did the trick! During the winter time our skin gets dull, dry and cracked, and our scalp is no exception! Just as we would use a body scrub on our skin, we can also use this method on our scalp! Scrubbing away dead flaky skin for healthy hair and scalp.
I used a little brown sugar (white sugar is to fine), and added some jojoba oil.
Why jojoba? jojoba is the only oil whose molecular structure is similar to sebum (the oil that the scalp naturally produces) and it has antibacterial properties. It soothes the scalp and can be used to treat dry scalp and dandruff.
When you mix the brown sugar with jojoba oil it makes a paste. The trick to applying this is you want to use a little at a time. It is very messy but worth it!
You want to pick up a little with your finger and gently give yourself a scalp massage. work in small areas using circular motions until you have distributed all over your scalp. I recommend doing this over a sink as the sugar will get messy.
Afterwards you want to tie your hair and let in sit for 15 minutes, you can see the sugar in my hair. The jojoba oil will work it’s magic and hydrate. Final step is to shampoo, condition and style as usual.
As always, make sure you drink lots of water and stay hydrated as well as eating tons of fruits and veggies for healthy hair and scalp!
