So ya’ll know I love all things pre-poo and here is a cool one for you to try. This pre-poo scalp scrub is simple and easy for you to do and you already have the ingredients in your kitchen. This scrub will not only help remove sweat, flakes, dandruff from your scalp but it will also increase circulation and stimulate blood flow which is important for scalp health. While anyone can try this recipe I recommend it for those with dry scalp, dandruff sufferers or those with psoriasis. You can also apply this to any area of your body.
Brown Sugar Scalp Scrub
- 2 Tbsp of Brown Sugar
- 2 Tbsp of Olive Oil (or your favorite oil)
Place sugar in a bowl and press with fork to remove any lumps. Mix in oil a teaspoon at a time to your liking, it should form a nice thin paste. Part hair into 8-10 sections and secure. Next apply the scrub directly to your scalp and massage in circular motion, removing clips as you go along to reach all of your scalp. Rinse your hair then clense and condition as normal.
This recipe is easily customizable by adjusting the ratio of sugar to oil you can make a courser mixture by using more sugar or thinner with more oil. You can also experiment with different types of sugar like sugar in the raw, demerara, turninado or muscovado. Or you can use a drop or two of essential oils to suit your scalp needs.
