Organic Natural Hair Care Recipe: Brown Sugar Scrub

I’ve been waiting to try this recipe for a while now.
 
 
Since I and my family are always using brown sugar in our tea, oatmeal, and other kitchen recipes, we tend to run out of it before I can even remember to use a little of it to enhance the look of my hair.
 
However, back from the store and stocked up on brown sugar, I am now determined to try the scrub this weekend!
 
Posting pictures in the near future? Possibly 🙂 So stay tuned!
 
 
The Brown Sugar Scalp Scrub is ideal for naturals who have oily, pore-clogged scalps or for naturals who want a new DIY treat to add to their list of all-natural scalp cleansers. Brown Sugar Scalp Scrub unearths unwanted oils laying on your scalp’s surface, blocking oxygen and repelling water. Moreover, because of the “hands-on” method used to apply the scrub, it helps promote scalp blood circulation and allows cleansing the scalp to be a breeze! Plus, it is really, really simple to make!

Recipe: Brown Sugar Scalp Scrub
2 tablespoons of Olive oil
 
2-3 Tablespoons of Organic Light Brown Sugar
 
3 drops of your favorite essential oil (helps invigorate scalp)
 
 
Directions: In a small bowl mix ingredients. Add enough sugar to make a thin paste. Do not heat the oil as this will melt the sugar. On dry or damp hair, part and section the hair into 6 or more sections. Clip or twist the hair to keep it in individual sections. Take a scoop of the scrub and apply to scalp, separating hair to reach entire scalp. In a circular motion, slowly scrub the scalp with the mixture for 1-2 minutes. Refrain from scrubbing roughly, as this may lead to irritation. Rise well, then shampoo and condition hair as normal.
 
 
 
Benefits:
 
  1. Removes excess oil and impurities
  2. Removes dead skin cells
  3. Improves cell circulation
 
Tips & Caution Steps:
 
It is best to use an organic brand of brown sugar for the recipe. The granules of organic sugar will be larger than regular processed sugar, allowing for maximum exfoliation of the scalp. An alternative to using an organic brand is to use a brown sugar that has granules similar to the texture and the size of sand.
If you have sensitive skin, use with caution as sugar granules can cause mild skin irritation. To avoid this, make sure mixture has the thickness of a paste and that you apply the scrub only to the hair avoiding facial area.
