If you have curly hair, you probably deal with scalp dryness. It's an unpleasant fact of curls; our scalps are more prone to dryness and irritation. This is because natural oils don't tend to move as easily through curls due to their coils as they do with straight hair. This can lead to an overbuild up of product, dandruff and irritation on your scalp. If your scalp has buildup, it can make it difficult to grow healthy curls. This easy to make and use DIY scalp scrub will help remove build up from your scalp.
What you'll need:
- 1 cup of warm water
- 1 tablespoon of baking soda
- 1 tablespoon of tea tree oil
- 1 tablespoon of clarifying curl care shampoo
- Apple cider vinegar
What to do:
Mix all of the ingredients together, blending until smooth. Section curls and then apply mixture directly to scalp section by section. Using your finger tips, massage the mixture into your scalp, gently working it in. To help clarify and remove buildup from your curls, work the product throughout the curl's shaft. Allow the mixture to sit for 15-30 minutes before rinsing out in a lukewarm shower. Seal down your cuticles by pouring apple cider vinegar over your curls. Enjoy the fresh and invigorating feeling of a clean scalp!
