Baking Soda Scalp Scrub

The world of DIY hair care isn't complete without kitchen products including baking soda and though the actual Scrub I used was the ORS scalp Scrub,  I couldn't have done it without baking soda which therefore, makes it a baking soda scalp scrub.

Since this week's wash day experience is all about something new,  I was really excited about the scrub.

The ORS scalp scrub has been in my stash for over a year, waiting for me to purchase  baking soda which is a needed ingredient. Well,  I finally, bought one at shop rite, Accra mall and did a scalp scrub with it.

The preparation of the  scrub is easy and the results were pretty good. It is recommended that the scrub is done once or twice a month so that's what I'll be doing though I may probably go beyond the month.

To begin the process,  you'll need a mixing bowl, the baking soda also called bicarbonate of soda, ORS scalp Scrub and a spoon to mix the ingredients.

In the video,  I show you the whole process from the mixing to the application of the scrub.

After the application, I covered with a cap for about 20 minutes as directed,  used Wen cleansing conditioner to wash afterwards. I t shirt dried the hair for about 10 minutes, applied grapeseed oil to the damp hair and put in flexible rods and perm rods. Honestly, my hair looked great next morning.


For the first time in my journey,  I didn't have crunchy hair after flexible rods! I'm encouraged to do this each week.
