Diwali is a time for cleaning and cleansing to bring in reinvigorating energy into your
life. Cleaning your physical surroundings and cleansing yourself emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Like everything in our life requires regular cleansing and detoxing, so does our Scalp!
The first rule for beautiful hair? Give your scalp some love! Your hair thrives in a
healthy environment, so if you want gorgeous, vibrant & healthy hair, you need to make a point of cleansing and caring for your scalp regularly too.
If your scalp is unhealthy, inflamed and full of toxins, imagine what quality of hair will it
grow. Dull, thin, weak that falls out easily. Like the delicate rose plant which requires
the right moisture, soil pH, and nutrients to grow and flourish, our hair too is very
demanding. It needs the right conditions to grow, especially the hair on the scalp.
Sadly in the quest to make our hair look beautiful, we are exposing it to an onslaught of
chemicals. Everyday use of chemical hair dyes, mousse, sprays, hair gels, shampoos and
conditioners only makes the matter worse. And it’s not your fault. The flashy
advertisement and glossy models lure you in the promise of thicker, fuller and shinier
hair and most of us switch from one product to another only to be left in more hair
Even if you opt for natural hair care, the pollution and water quality is another factor
you can’t do much about. Unless we all live in the forest and use pure spring/river water,
which would be so lovely. But if you are a city inhabitant, you can give yourself a scalp
detox every so often.
A scalp detox is like doing a deep cleanse. It helps to remove toxins and gunk from the
scalp, unclogs the hair follicles, and balances our natural oils and scalp pH.
Detoxing your scalp will rejuvenate and renew the hair follicles and create a perfect
environment for hair growth.
