Apply to damp or towel-dry hair. Sopping wet hair will dissolve the scrub
faster than you want, and if your scalp is too dry then the abrasion will be
too harsh. Try Thriae while soaking in a relaxing hot bath.
Scoop out a bit of scrub and work it down to the scalp with your fingers.
Don't worry if it gets on your hair, it won't hurt it at all! Work the scrub
into the scalp using a small, gentle circular motion, adding more scrub as
needed. When the scrub has dissolved, let it sit for a few minutes on your
scalp so the beneficial properties of the honey and Triple Moon Oil can work
their magic. Got leftovers on your hands? Work it into your face too, just be
careful not to get it in your eyes, nose or mouth. It won't kill you, but it
isn't a good idea to ingest anything with essential oils. Yes, it smells sweet
and yummy- don't eat it!
Water alone may not be enough to get the residue from the scrub out, so you
can use your favorite method of washing to remove it. As you rinse, be sure to
work your fingers at the scalp, ensuring that water can rinse things clean. You
may notice you shed a few more hairs than normal, this is expected and nothing
to worry about! The hairs that were ready to fall out in the next day or two
just got worked out a bit sooner with the scalp massage, you're not losing any
hair you weren't going to anyway! And that's it! Enjoy this whenever your scalp
could use a little extra attention!
