How to Detox Your Sensitive Redhead Scalp for Healthier Hair

Does Your Red Hair Need a Reset?

Posted on

Just like you exfoliate your skin, it’s important to cleanse your redhead scalp and get rid of the leftover product, extra oils, and any dirt that’s built up in the hair follicles. Detoxing your redhead scalp can help with hair growth, shine, dandruff, itchy scalp, and numerous other bothersome hair concerns you might have.

The type of deep clean you do on your redhead scalp will depend on your hair type and whether you’ve got sensitive skin or not. Here are a few redhead-friendly ways to do a scalp detox.

1. Scalp Detox for Oily Hair

If you’ve got oily hair, you might be more prone to build up. There are a lot of scrubs you can use to help remove some of those excess oils and get a clean slate without stripping your hair of its natural oils. Clarifying shampoos are also a great way to give your scalp a refresh.

2. Scalp Detox for a Sensitive Scalp

If your skin is prone to being sensitive, chances are your scalp is the same. You don’t want to use anything too harsh on a sensitive scalp, or you might end up with pain, redness, or flaky skin. Try using a gentle product intended for sensitive skin.

3. Scalp Detox for Curly Hair

Curly hair has very specific needs when it comes to products. Avoid anything with silicone in it, and make sure you’re giving your hair a boost of hydration with a leave-in or mask after doing your detoxing to keep your red curls from getting dry and frizzy.

How Often Should I Do a Scalp Detox?

The standard suggested time between scalp detoxes is 4 – 6 weeks. If you don’t suffer from sensitive skin and feel like you need more detoxing, try upping it to every couple of weeks. 

DIY Scalp Detox

There are lots of scalp detoxes you can do at home too. A few of the best ingredients for a DIY scalp detox include: 

  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Aloe Vera
  • Bentonite Clay
  • Ginger
