It's no secret that cinnamon is a beloved spice and is used in so many things. It has a lovely taste and aroma that many people love. However, it also can be used to take care of your curls. I know, we were as surprised as you are! You can incorporate cinnamon oil into your curl care routine to help remove build up and stimulate blood flow to your scalp. Here's how to use cinnamon to remove buildup.
How To Use Cinnamon To Remove Buildup
- 1 cup unscented castile soap
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
- 5-10 drops cinnamon oil
What to do:
In a small glass bowl or clean, empty jar add the soap and cinnamon powder. Mix until blended. Once incorporated, add in the cinnamon oil and continue mixing. Once it's mixed, it's ready to use.
How to use:
Now that your cinnamon shampoo has been blended, it's ready to use like any other shampoo! Wet curls, and apply throughout, taking your time to really massage your scalp. This will help break up any build up and product residue. Additionally, scalp massage will help increase blood flow to the scalp. As a result, you will see healthier, shinier, and longer curls.
Making your own shampoo has a lot of benefits. This handmade shampoo doesn't contain any harmful sulfates or parabens, meaning it's prefect for any type of curls. However, this isn't something that will be used every time you shower. Instead, save it for days when you feel as though your curls could really benefit from an extra boost or need some product removal. Over clarifying your curls can dry them out, so make sure you're not using this every single time you shower.
Cinnamon has a lot of great benefits but can be caustic for some, so make sure to do a patch test on a small bit of skin before using it all over your head.
