Scalp facials. Yes, you read that right: facials for your scalp. I heard about scalp facials awhile back and have never had one done in a salon, but when I found dpHue’s Salt Scrub and ACV rinse, I decided to try a DIY scalp facial.

Scalp facials are new to the US, but they’ve been popular for over 15 years in Japan. They treat issues such as oiliness and dryness by clearing all of the debris living on your scalp that clogs your hair follicles.

dpHUE’s Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Scrub With Pink Himalayan Sea Salt exfoliates the scalp, removing dead skin cells, product buildup and rebalances pH. It is made with craft-produced Apple Cider Vinegar, its antimicrobial properties gently remove impurities from your hair. The fine grain and coarse grain Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, renowned for its detoxifying qualities, work as an exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and product build up from your scalp and hair follicle. Infused with Avocado Oil and Aloe Vera to soothe and calm the scalp and enhanced with color-locking technology to protect color treated hair. Amazing, right?

The ACV Rinse is a substitute for shampoo or conditioner and contains all natural ingredients: argan oil, lavender extract, and aloe vera. This rinse restores your color and makes your hair vibrant and shiny.

Let’s get into how I give myself a scalp facial with these products:

♡ Before getting in the shower, I apply the salt scrub to my scalp. Separate your hair where you need to so that it can be applied directly to the scalp.

♡ Hop in the shower and scrub your scalp, and give yourself a massage by rubbing in small, circular motions. This feels so good and relieves tension.

Rinse the scrub off, and then apply the ACV rinse on your scalp to the ends of your hair. Leave on for as long or as little time as you’d like. Rinse.

That’s it! I have used this combo 5 times now and would recommend doing so at least once a month to give yourself a good refresh. With psoriasis, I plan to continue doing this treatment twice monthly.

Let’s talk about the best mask that you can sleep in… The GLOW RECIPE WATERMELON MASK. Omg is this good. I’ve never met a mask that I can sleep in that does not get all over my pillow…more on that in a bit.

This mask is made of watermelon extracts & is packed with hyaluronic acid (to plump + hydrate) and AHAs (to exfoliate). All the fruit extracts do good for sensitive skin – and some even are meant for/used for reddened or sensitized skin, which I have.

The consistency feels like a jelly and it is cooling when applied.

The directions are to apply to a clean, dry face and left on overnight and reveals glowing, smooth skin. I recommend testing it out for 30 minutes before you decide to sleep in it. Just in case. But I experienced zero irritation.

When you wake up, wash the residue away with a warm damp cloth and you’re good to go! My skin felt so smooth and bright the next day. Love!

Now let’s talk about the packaging. It is seriously the most luxurious packaging I’ve seen for a face mask. The jar is heavy and just FEELS expensive. It’s gorgeous just sitting on your bathroom counter and/or for Instagram pics. 😉

Have you tried this mask? Let me know what you think!
