The main culprits of scalp build-up are product accumulation and infrequent washing (naturals, we’re talking to you!). We often forget that our scalp is skin, the same skin that’s on your arms, legs and face. Think about it–how would your face react if you constantly lathered it with creams, oils, and cosmetics without cleansing on a regular basis? The thought is enough to make you cringe! It only makes sense that we take care of our precious scalps in the same way we would any other skin on our body. After all, healthy scalp = healthy hair!
If you’re the type that loves home hair treatments, try the recipe below. Baking soda is a simple, natural, and fool proof solution for removing product build-up that suffocates the scalp and dulls the hair. Your scalp will love you for it!
