It was fun mixing the sugar and coconut oil. The texture was that of sunscreen and sand: sweet childhood memories. Rita was napping, but she would totally love playing with that sort of mixture and I wouldn't even have to worry if she decided to lick her fingers. Oh, the things that us mothers of toddlers think about. I digress.
Upon massaging the mixture into my scalp, I felt relief immediately. I even saved a bit for Tyler to use when he showers tonight! It wasn't horribly greasy feeling so I left the scrub sit and did a few quick chores around the house, snapped a picture of my glamourous bouffant hair, and then rinsed.

During the hot rinse my hair felt more conditioned than I have ever felt! I have used olive oil as conditioner, but the coconut oil carries the trump card. I did a warm rinse and then a cold one (to keep the frizz down), scrunched my hair dry, added mousse and started blow drying. I usually shampoo once every two weeks, but as I was adding my mousse I started to wish I had done a light shampoo after the three rinses. Even though my curly hair thrives on conditioner, my hair was a bit too conditioned at this point. So, to all you fellow experimenters, wash with shampoo after! After blow-drying to a mid point and leaving my hair to air dry, I was able to come to a final conclusion.
I have greasy hair! Ah!
|Did the three rinses even do anything??|
You gotta try it!
This is super simple (only two ingredients) and so affordable. Nothing out of pocket for the specific purpose of a scalp exfoliation = frugal. And it was fun!
Do you use a scalp exfoliant? Is it homemade, store bought or a service you pay for?
