Honey Hair Detox DIY (With Essential Oils)

It’s easy to neglect the scalp while going through your hair-care routine. Skipping a day or two of shampooing can help protect your strands but can cause build-up on your scalp. Detoxing your scalp a few times a month can help promote hair growth while relieving any irritation.

We chose raw honey as the base of our scalp detox because of its natural antioxidant and emollient properties. Packed with antibacterial and antiseptic qualities, raw honey can soothe psoriasis issues and help prevent dandruff.

Add essential oils to the mix and the detoxing goes even further. Cedarwood and Rosemary help stimulate hair follicles and increase circulation. Basil can help get rid of excess grease while promoting hair growth!

So don’t delay, detox your scalp and say “hello” to healthier hair.

What you need:

¼ cup of raw honey

4 drops Basil essential oil

3 drops Rosemary essential oil

2 drops Cedarwood essential oil

1 oz Hazelnut carrier oil 

2 tsp water

How to:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. Apply the blend evenly to your scalp.
  3. Leave on for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Rinse with water and gently wash with a mild shampoo.
