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.
