How many of you clarify your scalp once every week? I certainly do, thanks to my oily scalp. If you use a lot of hair products or if you find your scalp getting oilier after 2 days of hair washing, you need to clarify your scalp and get rid of the build up at regular intervals to keep your scalp and hair in top condition. There are a lot of scalp clarifying masks and shampoos in the market but homemade charcoal detox mask works the best! Below is how you could make and use it:
Bentonite clay- Bentonite clay works as a magnet to draw excess oil and toxins out of the hair. It also nourishes the hair follicles and strengthens hair.
Activated charcoal powder- Activated charcoal powder adsorbs all the scalp impurities, excess sebum and cleanses the pores thereby detoxifying it from the core. This unclogs follicles and stimulates hair growth.
Rose water- Rose water makes hair soft, shiny and reduces frizz.
