So, let's dive into how to detox your scalp with this step-by-step guide!
Step 1: Pre-Treatment
The first step in a scalp detox is to use a pre-shampoo detox treatment. To create your own treatment, you'll need ingredients like activated charcoal, tea tree oil, and peppermint oil.
Activated charcoal is a powerful detoxifying agent that can draw impurities out of your scalp. Tea tree oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties that can help fight dandruff and other scalp conditions. Peppermint oil has a cooling effect on your scalp and can help increase blood flow to your hair follicles.
To use the treatment, wet your hair and mix the ingredients together. Apply the mixture to your scalp, massaging it in gently. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Next, take a soft bristled toothbrush, a scalp massager or a small tooth comb and gently exfoliate your scalp in small sections. Once you're finished, rinse it out.
