In an effort to combat the stress of frequent news updates, long days cooped up at home, and boredom from a repetitive routine, we’re bringing you a simple scalp care routine. By taking time for self-care and making the most of excess free time, you can destress and relax at the drop of a hat. Read on to learn how to create a simple scalp routine that will inspire you to find your calm.
Try This Simple Scalp Routine
Step 1: Replace your shampoo with a scalp scrub.
Start off by setting the scene for a relaxing experience. Light a candle, turn on a calming playlist and hop into the shower. Instead of reaching for your usual shampoo, opt for a scalp scrub instead. We love Nexxus Clean & Pure Scalp Scrub for a truly relaxing moment. Get your hair wet and then use your fingers to evenly distribute the product throughout your scalp. Use the tips of your fingers (not your nails!) to massage the product into your scalp using circular motions. Spend as long as you like massaging your scalp and rinse when finished. Follow up with your favorite conditioner and apply and rinse as usual.
Step 2: Apply a scalp serum.
Now that your scalp is clean and free of any product buildup and excess oils, you can move onto treatments. After getting out of the shower, we recommend using Love Beauty and Planet Hemp Seed Oil & Nana Leaf Scalp Serum. This calming serum nourishes and hydrates your scalp while providing the soothing scent of Nana Leaf. Use the pointed tip to apply the serum directly to your freshly washed scalp and use the tips of your fingers to massage the product in. Make sure to extend down the sides of your head and to the nape of your neck.
Step 3: Unplug and relax.
Finally, let yourself relax! After you’ve finished your scalp care routine, leave your phone in the other room and enjoy your favorite method of self-care. Watch a funny movie, get lost in a good book, or video chat with your best friends.
