Scalp Detoxing: What It Is And Do You Really Need It

There are so many beauty trends out there that it’s sometimes hard to keep track of, right? So don’t judge me when I tell you that I basically had no idea what a scalp detox was until just a few weeks ago. I was just mindlessly scrolling through TikTok and saw one of those stunning Gen-Z girlies telling me that I have to detox my scalp asap. Enter scalp detoxing into my life.

While I would just keep scrolling most of the time, this video had me intrigued. And there is a good reason for that — those harsh winter months took a toll on my hair. Or to be more specific, on my scalp. I noticed a lot of flakiness, irritation, and overall discomfort. So maybe the girl was right, and I do need a scalp detox. 

What is a scalp detox? 

We know that healthy hair can only grow from a healthy scalp. But what can you do to ensure the health of your scalp? Cleanse it thoroughly from time to time and free your follicles from any debris. And there are plenty of ways to do that.

Essentially, detoxing is just a term we use to describe a deep cleanse of the scalp. This can re-balance the pH of your skin, and create a better environment for your hair to grow. If your scalp is irritated and unhealthy, it can also cause other hair issues such as hair shed and dandruff

How can I detox my scalp?

There are plenty of ways to do this. The most popular one, at least according to my research, is with the help of a scalp exfoliating brush and scalp treatment. Silicone scalp exfoliating brushes are cheap and easy to find, and I would recommend them to anyone. It improves the lathering of your shampoo, and it also feels nice on the scalp.

When it comes to scalp treatments, you have plenty of options as well. Scalp masks, serums, or even scrubs. Find one that is marketed towards your specific scalp type. For example, if you have an oily scalp, then something with Salicylic acid might work. If you, on the other hand, have a dry and flaky scalp, then try something with glycolic acid. There are also plenty of other ingredients that could work wonders for your hair, such as apple cider vinegar treatments, or even clay masks for your scalp.

Do I need a scalp detox?

This is tricky to answer. To be honest, I don’t think that all people need to be detoxing their scalps. If you don’t notice any changes in the state of your scalp, and you already use a clarifying shampoo from time to time, you probably don’t need it.

However, if you, like me, feel a weird residue on your scalp even when your hair is freshly washed, maybe you do need it. If this is accompanied by symptoms such as flakiness, itching, or even hair loss — try out some of our listed methods for scalp detoxing. If that didn’t help either, definitely visit a dermatologist.
