Ingredients:


  • Brown sugar – 2 tablespoons
  • Oatmeal powder – 2 tablespoons (it should be very finely ground so that your scalp doesn’t feel itchy during application)
  • Herbal hair conditioner – 2 tablespoons (should be moisturizing enough for your scalp)
  • Essential Oil – 15 drops (Rosemary oil, jojoba oil, lavender oil, tea tree oil or any other oil of your preference)
  • Herbal shampoo – as required

Preparation:

  1. Make sure that your scalp is not loaded with dirt and styling product buildup. We are not talking about deep cleansing here, but at least shampoo your hair first if you feel it is extremely dirty for any other product to work on.
  2. Put the brown sugar and oatmeal powder in a mixing bowl. Add hair conditioner to it and blend thoroughly until a mixture of uniform consistency is prepared.
  3. Pour essential oil drops into it and give the whole thing a final mix.
  4. Now, apply the scrub to your scalp by taking in small amounts onto your fingers and massaging gently in circular motion. Your hair should not be dripping wet this time, but remember that slightly damp hair will make your task quite easy.
  5. Do it for 5-10 minutes until your entire scalp is covered.
  6. Finally, rinse it off with lukewarm water followed by fresh cold water to get perfectly cleansed scalp.
