A few weeks back I ranted about the need to focus on scalp health now that winter is approaching. Promptly after writing that article, I picked up a bottle of Hawaiian Silky’s Vinegar Scalp Rinse. I love the stuff. To make it even better, I add a little peppermint and tea tree oil for the cooling sensation and to stimulate hair growth.
I thought I had my scalp regimen down packed but, last night I stumbled on a product that I absolutely have to incorporate on wash day.
Our friends at dpHUE have come up with a scalp scrub that seems to embody all the ways of healthy hair. First, they start off with a base of pink sea salt. Most body scrubs are sugar based but Himalayan pink salt might be a better choice for several reasons. Not only does this unprocessed salt contain a slew of trace minerals that are essential for the body, it might also be beneficial to the actual hair strands.
A while back I wrote about how adding a pinch of salt to my conditioner made my hair so soft, manageable and moisturized that I could hardly believe it. This is a little-known secret that can be a life savior for dry hair. If any salt remains on my hair following the scrub, I wouldn’t be freaked out because it wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing.
Pink salt based scalp scrub sounds amazing enough but dpHUE took things to the next level by adding ACV and a slew of other hair loving ingredients like aloe vera, avocado oil, a coconut-derived cleansing agent, and more. So this scrub exfoliates, nourishes and it’s pH balanced. What more do you want?
Of course, I want to get my hands on it as quickly as possible but I already have most of the main ingredients on deck. Next on my agenda is to create a quick DIY version to try at home. If I love the results, I may want to scoop up the “commercial version” to see if I notice any difference. I’m sure many of you have similar ingredients at home as well so why not give this a try on wash day.
