How To Exfoliate Your Scalp.

Hello everyone!

Just like every other part of the body that requires exfoliation, the scalp is not left out. It's important to exfoliate the scalp frequently to get rid of dead cells, flakes aka dandruff and encourage the flow of blood to aid growth.

There are two ways to exfoliate your scalp.

1. Either buy a ready-made exfoliating shampoo or scalp exfoliator.
2. Or whip some in the comfort of your home.

Whichever one you use, just make sure it's good enough to get the work done.

For those that are DIY-savvy like me and would prefer the latter option, I'll share an easy and straightforward recipe.

What You Need.
- 1/2 tsp of brown sugar (depending on the length of your hair of course)
- 2 tsp of coconut/olive oil
- 2 tsp of conditioner
- 3 drops of essential oil (peppermint/tea tree) - Optional

What To Do
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl to create a paste of sorts.
- Section your hair to avoid tangles.
- On damp hair, apply the mixture and scrub gently. This is extremely important. You do not want to end up with bruises.
- When you're done, rinse out and shampoo/co-wash as usual.


Has anyone tried exfoliating their scalp before? How did it go and what did you use?

Love, kinks and knots.



  1. I've been thinking about exfoliating scalp but I think I'll go with using an exfoliating shampoo. I'm skeptical about little crystals of sugar remaining in my hair.

    1. Actually, I have never experienced having the sugar remain on my hair, just rinse well. Here is how I do mine:

  2. This is fresh o, I never thought I would have 2 do that. Definitely worth trying.

  4. I am really not sure about putting sugar on my scalp.

  5. No sugar for me either. I'm afraid of attracting ants.
