[Try This] The ACV + Pink Salt "Super" Scalp Scrub

Healthy Hair
A few weeks back I ranted about the need to focus on scalp health now that winter is approaching. Promptly after writing that article, I picked up a bottle of Hawaiian Silky's Vinegar Scalp Rinse.  I love the stuff.  To make it even better, I add a little peppermint and tea tree oil for the cooling sensation and to stimulate hair growth.

I thought I had my scalp regimen down packed but, last night I stumbled on a product that I absolutely have to incorporate on wash day.
Our friends at dpHUE have come up with a scalp scrub that seems to embody all the ways of healthy hair.  First, they start off with a base of pink sea salt.  Most body scrubs are sugar based but Himalayan pink salt might be a better choice for several reasons.  Not only does this unprocessed salt contain a slew of trace minerals that are essential for the body, it might also be beneficial to the actual hair strands.

A while back I wrote about how adding a pinch of salt to my conditioner made my hair so soft, manageable and moisturized that I could hardly believe it.  This is a little-known secret that can be a life savior for dry hair.  If any salt remains on my hair following the scrub, I wouldn't be freaked out because it wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

Pink salt based scalp scrub sounds amazing enough but dpHUE took things to the next level by adding ACV and a slew of other hair loving ingredients like aloe vera, avocado oil, a coconut-derived cleansing agent, and more.  So this scrub exfoliates, nourishes and it's pH balanced.  What more do you want?

Of course, I want to get my hands on it as quickly as possible but I already have most of the main ingredients on deck.  Next on my agenda is to create a quick DIY version to try at home.  If I love the results, I may want to scoop up the "commercial version" to see if I notice any difference.  I'm sure many of you have similar ingredients at home as well so why not give this a try on wash day.


  1. Just an FYI, Cream of Nature also has an ACV rinse product. I got it for $5.99 at the beauty supply store, not sure why it's so expensive on amazon. I actually prefer their ingredients over the Hawaiian Silky.


    1. Thanks for the heads up Janet! I'll check it out. :)

  2. funny enough I keep these in my food cupboard to aid weight loss and general good health. I ditched table salt around August last year and replaced with pink salt. I drink a glass of water with 2 tablespoons of AVC, pinch of non-irradiated cayenne pepper and cinnamon on an empty stomach every morning. This and general clean eating helped me lose 25lbs last years and Ive kept it off for a year now. Will do a home mix. Love your blog
