clear your head: it’s time for a scalp detox

We spend a lot of precious time (and money!) on our faces. You know the drill: cleanse, tone, moisturize, and repeat. Whether you’re a 10-step K-beauty aficionado or trying to Marie Kondo your beauty cabinet - it’s time to level up your hair care game.

It’s important to take care of the scalp as this often-forgotten region of the body is prone to buildup from styling products, natural sebum and pollution. Buildup = the clogged pores and dead skin that cause not only dull, greasy hair but also slows down hair growth. A detox is in order - deep cleansing the skin helps to decongest the clogged pores exfoliating away the dead skin to reset, rebalance, and soothe.   

One of the quickest ways to rejuvenate the health of your scalp, is with Reset: Pink Charcoal Scalp Cleansing Oil. Using the same K-beauty concept of double cleansing the skin, Reset: Pink Charcoal Scalp Cleansing Oil is the first step in a thorough scalp cleansing. The oil-to-foam pre-wash that will draw out impurities, break down dirt, and remove product build-up for a healthier scalp.

The pink clay and charcoal work to gently cleanse and exfoliate without stripping the scalp of essential oils. Minty menthol refreshes the scalp with a cool and clean tingling sensation. We’ve also added Indian cress stem extract alongside 7 other extracts to deliver some much-needed vitamins and antioxidants to your scalp. In addition, sunflower oil breaks down any dirt and our star ingredient sea buckthorn oil adds moisture back in for luscious locks.

How to: give Reset: Pink Charcoal Scalp Cleansing Oil a whirl - just section dry, unwashed hair and apply at the roots. Be sure to massage product into the scalp to distribute evenly. Adding water transforms the oil into a milky lather. Before rinsing, wait 3-5 minutes as this is when the magic happens. Follow up with your favorite amika shampoo and conditioner. Use Reset: Pink Charcoal Scalp Cleansing Oil as a weekly treatment or as needed. 

Pro Tip: If you’re heading to the salon for a color service or having a color DIY moment, turn to Reset: Pink Charcoal Scalp Cleansing Oil before you apply color to remove all product buildup which can alter color results. It’s ideal for ALL hair types. Plus, for our dry shampoo junkies you’ll definitely need this in your beauty arsenal. Maintain your mane and let us know what you think, in the comments below.
