A while back I posted a recipe for a scalp scrub against dandruff on our Instagram. This time I want to share a recipe for a dry scalp.
So, believe it or not, I actually got a dry scalp! I’m not sure what caused it, I suppose it are different causes: the weather has been changing like crazy in the Netherlands: one week it’s all sun and fun. And the week after that I need to put on my winter coat again.. I also stopped working out a while ago because I adopted a dog and wanted to be home more often. I take a lot of hikes with her but it’s just not the same as working out. Because it’s cold and I’m not exercising, I’m also drinking less water. I don’t have dandruff but I miss the sebum that my scalp produced to keep my hair moist and conditioned. So, what did I do?
I know ACV doesn’t do it’s miracles on my scalp, it only leaves my hair looking super greasy. That’s not what I want, lol. Since my scalp was really dry and I wanted to motivate it to produce more sebum, I used a scalp scrub again. This time for a dry scalp. Because you’re rubbing it gently on your scalp, you stimulate it to produce sebum. If you use the right ingredients, you won’t dry your scalp even more.
What did I use for this scalp scrub?
- One part almond meal as an exfoliator
- One and a half part raw honey for moisture and shine
- 7 drops of lavender essential oils against the irritation on my scalp
