From time to time we all need a little scalp TLC. We buy our shampoo and conditioner based on what our hair needs, not the scalp, and then there’s the dry shampoo, hairspray, volume mists and leave in conditioners that start to add up and build up.
The scalp is just as important to look after to ensure healthy hair growth, so whip up our easy-peasy scalp spray to reset and revitalize in just a few minutes.
Charcoal adsorbs with oil and dirt from the scalp to leave it feeling clean and fresh without drying out your delicate scalp - it’s especially good for those with flaky scalps, or any irritations on the scalp too.
Neem is an anti-fungal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. It soothes and relieves eczema symptoms, dandruff and itching. With regular use it will strengthen the roots and improve the health of your hair, too!
Add one teaspoon of neem powder and one teaspoon of charcoal powder to your spray bottle (use a funnel to avoid mess - we made one out of paper) and then pour in 100ml of purified water or cooled boiled water. Shake before each use and store in the fridge for up to a month.
Use 10-30 minutes before washing your hair. Beginning at the base of your scalp, section the hair into one inch increments and spray onto the scalp. Once the scalp is fully sprayed, massage into the roots, wait the desired amount of time and then wash out.
Hair will feel squeaky clean and will need to be washed twice to ensure all of the charcoal is removed (especially if you have light coloured hair).
Use once a week for an oily scalp or once every two weeks for a normal to dry scalp.
Use the waiting time after application to also apply coconut oil to the ends of your hair for seriously lush locks!
