DIY Scalp Detox For Healthier Hair

black-girls-smiling

A healthy scalp can be thought of as the rich soil, in which plants can easily grow. If the earth, so to speak, is dry and unhealthy, the plants have a difficult time growing. Your hair can be equated to the plants in your garden, and water isn’t the only thing that nourishes the garden. The scalp needs to be oxygenated and free of harmful chemicals, which are typically in most commercial hair products, in order for healthy hair growth to occur.

 

How Do You Keep The Scalp Healthy?

There are several factors that contribute to a healthy scalp. The pH range of the scalp should be between 4-5 in order for the scalp to retain moisture. A scalp that is too basic/alkaline will result in dry hair, whereas the slightly acidic scalp helps ward off bacterial and fungal growth. Blood circulation also comes into play for scalp health, because blood brings oxygen and nutrients to hair follicles. Healthy blood circulation is like fertilizer for the plants in your garden.

 

Why You Should Detox Your Scalp:

A scalp detox works to exfoliate the scalp, remove dead skin cells, and promote healthier hair. The scalp detox in this article includes a hair mask that allows your scalp to breathe. Additionally, the detox helps to clean hair roots, follicles, and oil glands. You’ll find the ingredients for the detox and instructions below.

 

Important: Make sure to patch test the mixture before massaging it all over your scalp. Those who have more sensitive skin may need to opt for a different treatment.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder

Instructions:

  • Mix all of the ingredients together in a small glass bowl.
  • Massage a generous amount of the mixture onto your scalp in a circular motion. Wrap a shower cap around your hair to completely cover your scalp and leave it on for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Get in the shower and use a natural shampoo and conditioner to wash the mixture out of your hair. If you need ideas for natural shampoos and conditioners, click here.

    Q: My hair has been falling out in patches for the past few years at first they said it was eczema, next they said that I had psoriasis on my scalp and last they want to test me for lupus.

    Read the "HAIR PROBLEMS" article but as well as our new "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" article (due out next week) to understand that your condition is one of toxic blood. Perform the FULL BODY DETOX (perhaps back to back). Use natural shampoos and conditioners (purchase our ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL e-book for a listing of healthy brands). Consider a radical diet and lifestyle change. There's much you need to do, but the most important thing is to educate yourself and you can do that by reading many of our health articles for a general overview of health and what you need to do to heal on all levels.

    Q: I have a condition called dissecting cellulites of the scalp. I've tried a number of remedies related to boils, but the condition never completely heals. The dermatologist has me on an antibiotic (Solodyn 90mg) and a shampoo (can't think of the name) I don't like drugs 'but it seems to be working this time, but I feel they will return. I have been dealing with this for several yrs. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    CHANGE your diet! Your body is too acidic and needs to be more alkaline. Eat more alkaline-forming fruits and vegetables to balance your pH.
