hair treatments: the 1st for itchy scalp or dandruff, the second for buildup, the last for putting the bounce back into curls.

At home scalp treatment for softer hair! It usually takes me 3-4 shampoos to get the olive oil out though, beware!

I get it: moisturize and exfoliate but the first one in particular, I'd feel like I was baking on my head and I can totally see having little flakes of oats trapped in my roots. Better put a strainer in the tub or the plumber will be all hair and oats?!? Oh, oh here she comes! Watch out boy, she'll chew you up! She's a... well, you get the idea.

    Diy All Natural Scalp Treatment I have a friend from childhood that was my ever faithful guinea pig during beauty school. She was the first head of hair I ever took a pair of scissors to, put color on, and performed my first scalp treatment on. To this day it is the one thing she begs me to make time for when I make it back home. I always say yes, under the condition she’ll do mine too. After just one, you’ll understand! Before we talk about the how, let’s talk about the why. Why Scalp Treatments Are Important Here are just a few reasons that a scalp treatment should be a part of your regular beauty routine: ◾Removes product build up (even shampoo and conditioner build up) ◾Relieves dry, flaky, tight skin from winter months ◾Treats dandruff ◾Stimulates the scalp to speed up hair growth On a more serious note: many scalp related problems including hair loss and slow hair growth are caused by a hardened build-up of sebum that clogs the hair follicles. Over time this build up may cause some types of scaling, and if not removed may eventually obstruct the hair follicle’s ability to function properly. Convinced you yet? Okay, then lets talk about how. How To Do A Scalp Treatment Supplies ◾Scalp treatment bristle brush – natural is best, but all I could find at Sally’s was a nylon brush. They have a rounded top at the bristles making it easier to roll over the scalp, but even a regular bristle brush can do the job. ◾Ingredients for recipe ◾Application brush or cotton balls While you can give yourself a scalp treatment, if you have a willing friend to swap with you, it’s dreamy. It always feels better when someone else washes your hair, right? My scalp was a mess from winter, so I couldn’t wait for a taker and did it myself, still fabulous. Recipes When I was in school we actually used sea breeze, or tea tree conditioner. However, I like to go a natural route these days and it’s really simple to whip up your own anyways. My favorite oil to use is Coconut oil. It has a wealth of benefits for the hair and scalp, and it smells great. However, you can use olive oil, as it has it’s own fair share of benefits. Just make sure both are extra virgin and organic. I’ve heard jojoba oil is fabulous on the scalp too, I just haven’t tried it. You can just add a little lemon juice to the oil and right there you have a great treatment, but if you want to kick it up a notch: My all time favorite recipe: Take about 4 tablespoons softened coconut oil, mix with 2-4 (depending on sensitivity) drops tea tree oil, and 3-4 drops of rosemary oil. This is dreamy. Ingredients from the kitchen: I mix 4 tablespoons coconut oil with 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1 tablespoon grapefruit juice. You can do a little research and find all sorts of recipes and concoctions for scalp treatments, these are just my favorite. Rosemary and tea tree oil are both great for treating dry flaky scalps, and stimulate the hair follicle for hair growth, among other things. You can also adjust the amounts, but keep in mind that tea tree oil can be irritating if you use too much, so use caution. Application: ◾You’ll start on dry hair, and it really makes no difference if it is clean or not. Starting on top, place the brush on the scalp, rotate it across the scalp while pressing down and pull off in the end. Repeat across the scalp, parting hair where necessary. This will stimulate the blood circulation and loosen any dry skin scales. This should feel good, don’t press so hard that it hurts. ◾Next part the hair down the center and apply the oil mixture to the scalp with the application brush or cotton ball. Work in one inch sections down the sides of the head, then the back making sure the mixture covers the entire scalp. ◾Now give your scalp (or your friends) a good massage. Rub with your fingertips in a circular motion all over the scalp. Leave the treatment on for about 20 minutes. ◾Finish it off with a good shampoo and conditioner. Easy right? And trust me, so worth it.
