Does your scalp feel itchy, oily, or gritty? Well, sometimes shampoo by itself just doesn’t cut it. Dirt, dryness, greasiness, and product build-up on your scalp can cause scalp concerns like dandruff and hair fall. Sulphate-free shampoos that are low on lather sure are gentle on your hair and it is a very good haircare habit, but you could use some extra help with a scalp exfoliating scrub every once in a while to ensure your scalp is clear of dead skin cells and flakiness in one wash. Plus, it will boost your scalp health by refreshing it so that your hair grows thicker with lesser hair fall to worry about. If you love the idea, then these DIY scalp scrubs are worth trying out.
For those of you with oily scalp conditions, a homemade scalp scrub with salt is a good way to combat greasy scalp and roots. Combined with the right balancing ingredients you will get rid of bad oil build-up and replace it with the right kind of moisture. Rose water in this recipe balances the scalps pH levels while coconut oil nourishes the roots. Rosemary essential oil is the best to invigorate the scalp and prevent hair fall.
If you have a dry scalp condition, a sugar-based scalp scrub is highly compatible with your scalp health. Pair it with a nourishing hair oil and lemon juice and you’ve got an anti-dandruff solution right there.
Looking to clear up dandruff on an otherwise healthy scalp? Try this nourishing scalp scrub using oatmeal, honey and apple cider vinegar.
