DIY: Homemade scalp detox treatment


The toxins from the hair styling products that we use daily can clog pores and cause dead skin cells build-up, leading to dull, damaged, greasy hair and slower hair growth. So, instead of focusing on the split ends, you should start the hair repairing from the beginning- the hair follicles/roots. Having a healthy scalp can promote the growth of some new, healthy, beautiful hairs. Therefore, a scalp detox is a treatment you should never skip.

For a simple DIY scalp detox treatment you will need: coconut oil, baking soda and cinnamon.


The recipe:




The treatment:

  1. Mix the ingredients together.
  2. Apply the mask on your scalp.
  3. Massage gently with your fingers in a circular motion.
  4. Don’t scratch! You don’t want to damage the scalp with your fingernails.
  5. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then rinse off using your regular shampoo.
  6. The longer your hair is, the harder you’ll get the cinnamon and baking soda out of it. Make sure you rinse off a couple of times so there are no leftovers all over your hair.


This scalp detox mixture will:

  • Remove dead skin cells
  • Stimulate and speed up hair growth
  • Fight off dandruff
  • Prevent hair loss
  • Remove bacteria
  • Stimulate blood circulation


Overtreating can only lead to damage, so make sure you don’t do this treatment too often. Once a month is enough to get some amazing results!

I try to keep up and have this scalp detox mask once a month. However, I do admit that it’s a bit time consuming and I’m struggling to wash out all the ingredients from my hair, cause it’s so long. The bright side is: my hair feels reborn and smells so good!

*Please do not use this treatment if you’re allergic to any of these ingredients.
