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.

jord delmar series

You may have seen my review last week on the fantastic JORD Wood Watches. Well the wonderful team at JORD is letting MakeHerUp give one away!! Yes, you heard that right you have the chance to win the same watch I reviewed the JORD Delmar Series in Green, worth $149!!!

If you still need something great for the Dad in your life or a special gift for the grad in your life we are here to help. Or maybe you keep the watch and get them a tie? =)

Check out the rafflecopter widget below to enter to win one of these great watches for yourself!

 

Jord watch front and back

Let me tell you a little about JORD watches, they are made from different woods from all over the world including bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, and teak. The glass is made from scratch-proof blue film glass. The best part is that each one is hand-crafted from natural materials making each one truly unique.

The watch in this post is the Delmar Series in green model. The Delmar comes in five design options at the affordable price of $149 USD.

The watch is really amazing in person and its really all made of wood. I love how unique it is and while the watches are a great size the wood makes them lighter than your average watch. The JORD watches are very wearable and a great conversation piece. These are extremely well made watches and would make a wonderful gift for dad, grad or a groomsmen gift.

To clean your JORD Watch you mix two tablespoons of olive oil and lemon juice and apply the mixture to a cotton cloth and then to the watch. Jord watches are splash proof, meaning they will withstand some water being splashed from a kitchen sink, but they are not designed to be submerged in water.

If you are looking for a gift he won’t forget, head over and check out all the great wood watches available from JORD!
