We’ve all heard of (and have probably done a lot of) detoxes, but have you ever heard of scalp detoxing? Probably not.
The purpose of scalp detoxing is to unclog the pores on your scalp (yes, your scalp has pores,) get rid of dry skin, as well as to remove product build-up. The benefit of a scalp detox is to allow your hair to grow as long and as healthy as possible without any interference.
The 3 ingredients you’ll need to detox your scalp are baking soda- to absorb unwanted oils and product build-up, olive oil- to moisturize, and cinnamon- to stimulate hair growth as well as to get rid of bacteria and fungus.
Start by mixing 1 tsp of baking soda, 2 tbsp of olive oil, and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder. Section your hair and apply the mixture directly to your scalp. Once your scalp is coated, give yourself a head massage- this will help the mask to penetrate your scalp and it will also stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow. Cover your hair and let the mask sit for at least 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, rinse out the mask and shampoo and conditioner your hair as your normally would.
As this scalp detoxing mask works to deeply cleanse and clarify your scalp, it should only be used (and only needs to be used) once a month.
