Almost all women know the exfoliants for the skin, both body and face, but few we have heard of those that are specific to the scalp. The reality is that these treatments, although not as popular, are very effective and necessary to eliminate accumulation of products, sebum and scrap of skin on the scalp.
Like the skin of the face, the hair follicles can be obstructed due to the accumulation of fat and dead cells. The first clue to this is when small pimples are felt by touching the scalp, and over time, the hair may begin to fall.
When the obstruction is severe, the hair follicles become inflamed and infected, causing hair to fall easily and the new hair is unable to grow.
On the other hand, hair loss tonics do not work, because the pores are clogged (as with facial treatments when a previous exfoliation is not done). The nutrients are unable to penetrate the skin, and reach the hair follicle to strengthen it.
The good news is that it is very easy to keep the scalp clean, this is achieved with clarifying shampoos (or the monthly use of baking soda) and a good exfoliating mask.
This recipe is made with sea salt, which is detoxifying and ideal for purifying the skin, and is ideal for fatty scalps. It also has coconut oil, which has emollient and bactericidal properties.
3 to 4 tablespoons sea salt
Coconut oil, quantity needed
Place both ingredients in a bowl, and mix until homogenized.
To use this exfoliant it is necessary to wet the hair and rub directly on the scalp divided by sections.
Leave it on for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly. The usual shampoo, rinse and tonic for hair growth are then used.
It should be noted that this exfoliant should be used once a month, and never on injured skin. If the hair becomes dry, it is time to replace the sea salt with whole sugar to avoid that it increases the dryness.
