While we often take care of our face and use a good exfoliator to slough off the grime and dead skin cells, we tend to forget that our scalp needs that TLC too! The oil and dirt buildup on your scalp can cause dandruff and hair fall—that you obviously don’t want. Moreover, it is also essential to keep your scalp healthy to promote hair growth.

So if hair growth is on your mind, then apart from oiling, shampooing and conditioning include scalp exfoliating too! And for that, you don’t have to worry about spending big bucks, these natural scalp scrubs can do everything you have been asking for!

So consider these scalp scrub recipes as the ultimate hair growth tips and start exfoliating:

1. Apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, honey, and salt scrub

Apple cider vinegar is great for your hair. Not only does it kill the fungus on the scalp but also prevents hair loss and stimulates hair growth. Coconut oil and honey, on the other hand, have nourishing properties and provide your scalp with hydration. The salt helps with exfoliating and sucks all the grime out. Together, they work exceptionally well in detoxifying your scalp and promoting hair growth.

Here’s how you can use this scrub:

  1. Take 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar and coconut oil each. Mix them well. 
  2. Now add ½ cup of salt and 1 teaspoon of honey. Mix again. 
  3. Apply the mixture gently on your damp scalp.
  4. Massage the scrub in and let it sit on your scalp for about 10-15 minutes, before rinsing it off with lukewarm water.
  5. Shampoo and condition your hair as usual.

    2. Lemon, sea salt, and olive oil scrub 

Lemon juice works as a great exfoliator, especially if you have an oily scalp. It efficiently removes all the dirt, dead cells, and grime from your scalp. It also helps in loosening sebum that might be blocking your hair follicles. On the other hand, olive oil is rich in several vitamins such as A and E, which helps in nourishing your scalp and hair. 

Sea salt adds the scrub granules in this mix and helps in removing flakes and promotes blood circulation. Note: if you don’t have sea salt at home, you can use regular salt as well!

Here’s how you can use this scrub:

  1. Take equal quantities of lemon, olive oil and salt in a bowl. Mix them together
  2. Massage this mixture on your damp scalp for about 5 minutes
  3. Rinse out the scrub and follow up with your regular shampoo and conditioner.
