The quality of your hair goes hand in hand with your scalp's health.

The key to growing long, strong and healthy hair starts with taking care of the scalp first - a part of the body that is likely neglected on a daily basis. If the scalp is dry, inflamed, and unhealthy, the hair it grows is unhealthy, too.

The use of everyday hair styling products, shampoos and conditioners can create an unwelcome product buildup on the scalp. As if that wasn't enough, certain chemicals within those products can also have a negative effect on our scalp health and hair growth. And of course, pollution and water quality also play a positive, or negative, factor in our scalp and hair health.

So, it's a good idea to give your scalp a helping hand in the fight against pollutants, chemicals, and heat. Here’s everything you need to know about scalp detoxing.

Why you should detox your scalp
Detoxing the scalp gets rid of product build-up, improves scalp circulation - which is essential for stimulating hair growth - regenerates hair cells unclogs hair follicles so that new and healthier hair can grow, and gets rid of dry skin.

Different ways to detox your scalp at home

Scalp Massage

The easiest way to detox your scalp yourself, without any additional products. Simply massage your scalp with your hands for a few minutes; we recommend doing it in the shower! This will help remove toxins and increase circulation, which will stimulate hair growth.

Lime Juice Rinse

Combine 2 tablespoons of lime juice with 1 cup of water and pour it over your hair. Leave it on for a few minutes, massage it into your scalp, and rinse. This method works especially well for those with oily hair.

Honey and Cinnamon Mask

The perfect scalp detox for individuals with slow hair growth, or hair loss. Combine warm olive oil with cinnamon and honey to form a paste. Apply it directly to your scalp. Keep the mask on for a minimum of 15 minutes, and then shampoo and condition your hair.

Sea Salt Scalp Scrub

A scalp scrub is one of the best ways to get rid of dead skin cells and the product and oil buildup that lives on your scalp and in your hair. Combine 1 tablespoon of sea salt, 1 tablespoon of your go-to shampoo, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Apply the scrub to your scalp and massage it around. The sea salt will remove dry and flaky skin, the shampoo will cleanse your hair, and the olive oil will provide moisture and shine to your hair.
