Balanced Guru Scalp Detox

scalp_detox_large

When we have troubled hair we tend to treat the hair  and skip treating the root of the issue, our scalps. Balanced guru has created a unique scalp detox. Just a few drops of this treatment comprised of astringents and essential oils and you can start balancing your tired scalp.

Scalp detox will detoxify and cleanse your scalp while soothing itchy, flaky skin. My scalp tends more the the oily side and I love how clean and fresh this made my head feel. The oil is really light closer to a toner consistency then oil. A few drops and I massage it into my scalp and right away my scalp feels cleaner and the fresh scent is invigorating.

After a weeks use my scalp feels so much better. I find the roots of my hair don’t feel as oily at the end of the day and I just love the way it makes my skin feel. I also love using this on my kids, a few drops and their hair smells great and no more itchy heads.
