When was the last time you gave your scalp a facial? Yes… You just read that right. I asked, when was the last time you gave your scalp a facial?
Because, like your face, your scalp is also “skin”. It needs just as much love and care! In fact, hair experts say a good scalp treatment is key to healthy, glossy strands and a hydrated, itch-free scalp.
It makes sense though: Like all other skin on your body, your scalp needs to breathe too. It needs oxygen, moisture and nutrients. And since your hair is rooted in your scalp, it's kind of important!
It seems our grandmothers understood this pretty well. I know mine did - she was regularly brewing up lotions and potions for her skin. So, I'm borrowing a page from her beauty diary - a luscious coconut oil scalp treatment. Read on to find out more about it.
What this coconut oil treatment will do for your scalp
This wonderfully hydrating treatment will:

How to apply the treatment:
Mix up all of the ingredients in a bowl.
Apply the mixture to your scalp with a hair dye brush or a cotton wall.
Make small partings through your hair and work in small section to make sure you distribute the mixture evenly.
Give your scalp a good massage (moms, kind friends or loving significant others are priceless here!). Rub your fingertips in a circular motion for five to ten minutes.
Let the mixture sit in your hair for another 20 minutes.
Rinse your hair with warm water and wash with your regular shampoo. Finish with a good conditioner.
Why this coconut oil treatment works
The ingredients in this treatment are great for rebalancing your scalp’s oil and hydration levels. They’ll also rid it of toxins, calm down your skin and stimulate the follicles for hair growth.
Neglecting your scalp, on the other hand, can result in hair damage and premature hair loss.
