Not to go into too much detail on a recipe site dedicated mostly to delicious food, but my scalp really bothers me. I was excited to stumble on this recipe for a DIY sugar-based scalp scrub that helps remove build-up and soothes the itchies.
Recipe from Byrdie.
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil (for finer hair textures use sweet almond or jojoba oil)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 5 to 10 drops of peppermint oil
- 1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tbs. Manuka honey
Combine all ingredients in a plastic container and mix well.
In the shower, wet your hair and scalp. Gently apply the scrub and massage all over. Then shampoo (let's face it, multiple times) to rinse clean.
Use one or two times per month.
