I do it in 5 easy steps.
Part my hair in 4 sections and secure ends with a clip of ponytail holder.
Apply my scalp scrub recipe at the base of each ponytail including my hairline and nape of my neck.
- ¼ Cup of Coconut Oil
- ¼ Cup of Brown Sugar
- 5-10 drops of Peppermint Oil
- Combine all ingredients into a bowl and massage into your scalp with your fingertips for about three minutes prior to cleansing your hair. Rinse, cleanse, and condition as usual.
If you have curly hair this is important because you may skip shampooing frequently to prevent dryness caused by the harsh chemicals but it eventually leads to product build up. In my recipe I use coconut oil for moisture also when it is cooled it is solid and easier to work with. I also added peppermint oil because peppermint solves all problems. Every last one.
