Well I don’t know about you but the winter leaves me dry – not just my hands, skin, lips but my scalp too. Especially since I color my hair it can be more prone to dryness during the winter. I wash my hair every 3rd day to protect color and oils but still in the winter my scalp can be dry and prone to build up. Now you can go to a salon and get a great product but that takes “mucho”$$$ – so I came up with a great at home solution that I am gonna share with you! Why? Cuz I like ya and it works like a dream.
- 1 Tlb shampoo (your choice – I am rocking old school Finesse – the smell is Divine )
- 1 Tlb vinegar ( to remove build-up; apple cider vinegar is a fave for the the hair but white vinegar works well too)
- 1/2 Tlb Ginger/Ginseng or Baking Soda for Blonde’s like me: Turmeric for darker shades Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, stimulates circulation and provides a mild exfoliation click on the link to see how Ginger helps with tons of aliments topically used as well as ingested. natural news ginger health benefits
- A few drops of essential oils – rosemary, eucalyptus, cedar wood, myrrh and lavender are all good choices.
Mix together and massage into damp hair and leave on for 3 minutes rinse and than condition as usual – leaving on a few minutes longer than normal especially on the ends. Rinse with cool water and see and feel the difference.
