DIY Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Scalp Scrub For Your Hair


Much like the pores on your skin, hair follicles can become clogged with oil, dirt and product build-up, leaving you with lackluster strands and flat, limp hair. But this apple cider vinegar scalp scrub helps detox the scalp and get rid of impurities.

If you use commercial hair products, chances are your shampoo is loaded with parabens, sulfates and other chemicals that may linger in your scalp and build up over time.

This ACV scalp scrub naturally sloughs off product build-up and removes dead skin cells that might be weighing your hair down. By getting rid of the impurities that can block hair follicles, you can help promote blood circulation, encourage hair growth and get rid of  stubborn bacteria.

yield 1/2 cup

This simple scrub will help detox your scalp and breathe new life into tired locks.



  1. If you can only find coarse sea salt, grind about 1/2 cup salt in a clean coffee grinder until you have a semi-fine texture .
  2. Combine everything in a small bowl and stir. Transfer to an airtight container.
  3. To use, wet your hair and gently scrub a tablespoon sized amount into your scalp using your fingertips (don’t expect the scrub to foam like soap). Let it sit for 5-10 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
