Scalp Health

A healthy scalp is the most important part of hair care and growth. It has been found that a dirty scalp inhibits hair growth and can have a profound effect on the condition of your hair. Unfortunately, shampooing alone is not enough to effectively clean your scalp and remove the sebum, dead skin cells and cholesterol that accumulates on the scalp. The only way to removes these items is through scalp exfoliation.

Just as your face requires exfoliation your scalp requires exfoliation as well in order to remain healthy.  Try this brown sugar scalp scrub at least once monthly to ensure that your scalp is its cleanest and healthiest for maximum hair growth.

Brown Sugar Scalp Scrub

Directions: Mix equal parts brown sugar, finely ground oatmeal and a moisturising conditioner of your choice. A few drops of an essential oil may be added to this mixture. I am a huge fan of peppermint oil for its invigorating properties.

Apply the scrub to your scalp and gently massage your scalp suing circular motions. Repeat this process until you have massaged your entire head. After you are satisfied that you have exfoliated your scalp wash the mixture from your hair and cleanse your hair as per your usual routine.
