Dandruff Is Not Mellow

Dandruff Is Not Mellow

One of the sweetest things about our devoted hellomellow community is their willingness to share all the ways our products have helped them. We had a customer write to us to say how much our Pink Himalayan Sea Salt Body Scrub had helped her dandruff.

Whaaattt?

We hadn’t thought of testing that, but of course it makes sense! The salt acts as a physical exfoliant. The avocado and mango butters soothe, moisturize and promote healing of the damaged skin on your scalp. 

There is nothing more irritating than an itchy, dry, flakey scalp.

Add to the physical discomfort the stress load of being itchy all day and the emotional toll of not wanting to walk around with flakes on your head well, it’s anything but mellow! Try this ritual to ditch the flakes:

  1. Jump in the shower with your favorite intention of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt Body Scrub. Empower is always a great choice throughout the year because of it’s natural arsenal of antifungal and analgesic properties. Bummer, but some dandruff can be fungal. But this month, you can also reach for our Joy intention! Released only during the winter holidays, Joy is packed with Sage which is also a natural anti-fungal.
  2. Thoroughly wet your head and then put a small amount of scrub on your scalp. Use small circles with your fingers and scrub away those pesky skin flakes. Add more scrub until you have scrubbed your entire head. BONUS… it feels so good to do this! You are also relaxing all of the tension in your head muscles. 
  3. Leave the Pink Himalayan Sea Salt Body Scrub in your hair while you attend to your other showering needs. Then rinse.

Depending on your hair type, you may need to shampoo or rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar. ACV is so cleansing without being harsh or drying on your itchy scalp.

Part of the hellomellow team has coarse, curly hair and we leave the butter in it for a deep condition. Pop in some braids or wrap a bun and let your dryer type hair drink up all those nutrients. You won’t believe how soft and shiny your hair will be when you wash it out! 

This ritual isn’t just for dandruff. Using Pink Himalayan Body Scrub on your scalp also removes buildup left behind by conditioners and styling products. 

We can’t wait to hear about your results. And if you have any other nifty uses for hellomellow products, please share!
