Fact: winter is shedding season. To minimize that effect, you have to treat your scalp with a bit more attention.
It is difficult for hair to grow to its fullest potential if the scalp is clogged. Styling products and frizz fighters can build up and clog the scalp. True Moringa offers light and absorbent moisture which helps to enrich your scalp with vitamins and allow essential oils to work effectively.
The best method for applying scalp oil is a massage before bed. My hair is thick and wavy, but oil does weigh it down. A good recipe that you can use for up to 3 days (1-2 days for thinner hair) before having to wash out goes as follows:
You will need: 6oz of True Moringa Oil, Essential Rosemary Oil, Essential Peppermint Oil, and Essential Lavender Oil.
Using True Moringa as your base oil, add 20 drops of rosemary oil, 10 drops of Peppermint Oil, 5 drops of Lavender. Shake well, and let it sit in a bottle for about 5 days before you begin using.
To use, massage a small amount (1/2 teaspoon) into your scalp using your finger tips as if you were lathering shampoo. Not only does this recipe help promote hair growth and scalp stimulation, it can be very relaxing to do so at night.
This recipe also helps tame an itchy dry scalp.
These routines are suitable for hair of any texture especially when washed out correctly.
This oil scalp massage is especially nourishing for color or chemically treated hair since chemical treatments can often throw off scalp pH balance and cause dryness.
Try it out 2-3 times a week and end dry scalp. Practice continuously for 3 months and notice the health and new hair growth!
