DIY Pink Himalayan Sea Salt and Manuka Honey Scalp Scrub

pink

From shampoo to clay masks, there are tons of things we can do to keep our hair and scalp clean and clear of buildup. In recent years, scalp exfoliation has become one of the best cleansing methods because it really gets the job done for all hair types–especially thick, curly hair like mine.

There are so many amazing products and recipes you can use to exfoliate your scalp, but recently, I’ve fallen in love with a Pink Himalayan Sea Salt and Manuka Honey scalp scrub that is to die for. Check it out below!

You Will Need:

2 Tbsp of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

1 Tbsp of Manuka Honey

1 tsp of Tea Tree Oil


1 tsp of Coconut Oil

Water Spray Bottle

Glass Jar

Directions:

The first thing you need to do is grind two tablespoons of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt into a medium sized glass jar. If you have whole salt crystals, make sure you have a salt mill on hand so that you can finely grind the crystals down. If you’re really brave, you can even try a cheese grater.

Now after you’ve ground down two tablespoons of salt, add in a teaspoon of Manuka honey. Since the salt is very coarse and is going to be the key to properly exfoliating and cleansing your scalp, honey will serve as the humectant and soothing property.

After you add honey to the salt, throw in a teaspoon of tea tree and coconut oil. Take a spoon and stir all of the ingredients together until it is a slightly thick paste. If the past is too thick for you, I recommend adding a tablespoon of water or aloe vera juice to thin it out a little bit.

At this point, if you want to add an essential oil or your favorite scent, you can. If it is oil, make sure you add only a few drops because you don’t want to add so much that it changes the consistency.

I usually add 3-4 small drops of grapefruit or pink lemonade scents since it fits within the ‘pink’ theme.

Nice article. Well I didn’t know about using Himalayan salt for skin, though I have been using edible Himalayan salt in cooking for quite a long time now. This salt is really amazing and I am definitely going to try this scrub for my skin as well and will tell you the results. Recently I have also bought Himalayan salt lamps from ittefaqco. These lamps are also very good just like the edible salt.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. I love tea tree oil for my hair growth. I have tried Himalayan salt scrub from saltean for my broken skin that is proved to be productive for my skin. I’m annoyed with my flaky scalps. I would surely try your recipe to treat it.
