I have a lot of coarse, thick, curly hair, and my scalp tends to run on the dry side. This has always been my nemesis, it's a horribly frustrating thing to have to deal with but it is a reality. I've found a few products that work really well for me but I recently ran out of them and I was in desperate need of a solution. This led me to google and there I found a few tips on at home scalp treatments. I didn't have ingredients that matched perfectly so I modified to suit my needs. I have to say I was very impressed with the result. After leaving it on for 30min and then washing it out of my hair, I could instantly see and feel a difference.
This treatment is incredibly easy. It has a limited number of ingredients and it truly has given me such great results.
Step One - Mix Ingredients
4 tablespoons softened coconut oil, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon sugar
Step Two - Brush Your Scalp
Most sites suggested a scalp treatment bristle brush, in nylon or natural either will work. As you can see from the above pic, I didn't have the right tools, so I had a make it work moment and used my tangle teaser. The point of brushing your scalp is to stimulate blood circulation and loosen any dry skin.
Step Three - Paint on the Treatment Mixture
I separated my hair into sections, starting at the top and moving my way down my head and around the back. I didn't have a snazzy color applicator tool, so I used an actual paint brush. I felt it did a decent job and it required no spending. Which is a check in the pro column, in my book.
Step Four - Massage & Let it Set
Once you've painted on the treatment, rub it in with your fingertips in a circular motion all over your scalp. If you have a spouse or significant other, or just a friend that is willing... this portion can be really luxurious if someone else does the massage. Let it set for 20-40min.
Step Five - Rinse, Wash & Style
You are ready to go.
I'd love to hear if any of you try this at home, or if you have some great at home remedy's you think I should try. Let me know in the comment section!
