DIY Scalp Wash for a dry itchy scalp

This week one of our fantastic retailers have shared their recipe for a scalp wash. The ladies at Eko Hub in Whangarei have been using this four ingredient natural scrub for years and love how it helps their scalps and the condition of their hair.

If you suffer from a dry, flaky scalp or just feel like your scalp needs some extra love, then give this easy to make concoction a go.

And if you live in Whangarei or are passing through anytime be sure to stop and check out Eko Hub. They have so many fantastic eco products to choose from all in one place.


Due to differences in hair length and thickness, this is just a guideline for amounts to get you started. You may need more or less. This amount is generally suited for short to shoulder length if applying to all of your hair. Otherwise use it on your scalp area only or make a bigger batch for longer hair.

In a bowl (not metal) mix the following together:

2 Tablespoons of Bentonite clay (use wooden spoon or just tip into bowl)

1 Tablespoon of Aloe Vera gel

1 Tablespoon of Apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup water

The consistency should be a thin paste, you can add more water if you have longer hair and would like to pour it onto your head.

Massage the scalp well and massage into the rest of hair. Leave on for approx. 5 minutes and rinse.

You can find Bentonite Clay & Aloe Vera gel online here and in-store at Eko Hub in Whangarei.

If you have an Aloe plant at home, you can use that (just scrape out and give it a quick blend).
