No matter the season, especially more recently, I’ve struggled with dandruff followed by dry and static hair. Not sure what’s causing this issue, and it has also become an insecurity of mine. Being brunette with dandruff shows that much more. (Where are my dandruff suffering brunettes at?) I’ve searched high and low and plant-based or eco-friendly, but sometimes pure, all-natural tactics make it worse sometimes or flat out do not work.
One day when I was at Target stumbled upon Raw Sugar Living. They are a raw, clean, vegan-friendly and sustainable company that is catered to a cleaner way of living so that’s an added double bonus.
Because I deal with such frizzy hair I’ve learned by trial and error what works for me and these three steps have really helped tame the mane.
Step 1. Scalp Restore Shampoo- Activated Charcoal + Tea Tree + Moringa Oil. Massage all over the scalp and hair. This one, in particular, was rated high for people with dandruff.
Step 2. Scalp Therapy Treatment- Activated Charcoal + Coconut + Peppermint Oil. Lather all over scalp and hair. Then, wait 10 minutes and rinse. (2x week)
I wash my hair every 3-4 days so rather than using a normal conditioner I like the Raw Sugar Living Scalp Therapy treatment as it really nourishes and creates that much more shine than the average conditioner. There is also a step 3 I want to add. It is not associated with Raw Sugar Living. It’s with a Trader Joe’s product!
*Optional Step 3. Shea Butter & Coconut Oil Hair Serum– I use two pumps and lather at the ends of my hair and the top of my head.
Here is my post shower routine!
