Hats provide the ideal protection from the sun, but if you find that your scalp is suffering from irritation, a peppermint packed treatment could be your best friend. The heat can often increase the amount of oil the scalp produces or dry out the scalp; this is where reviving mints and moisturising oils can help.
Pry open a pot of Roots, a pre-wash scalp treatment, to unleash a blend of menthol magic. Fresh mint infusion and spearmint oil soothe, while also stimulating hair follicles and boosting blood circulation to promote healthy hair growth. Honey helps to retain moisture ensuring your scalp is deeply hydrated, as a splash of extra virgin olive oil strengthens new hair at the root to limit future breakage.
For even more scalp-soothing goodness, cook up a spearmint storm with Yuge hot oil treatment. Organic jojoba and restoring olive oil naturally moisturise, while marvellous mint will revive the scalp. As these lavish ingredients work their magic, mineral-rich coarse sea salt helps to add volume to help you achieve your perfect finish.
