    What is the difference between ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox and ACV Scalp Scrub?
    The ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox is a chemical scalp exfoliation that uses salicylic acid to dissolve product buildup and excess oil, whereas the ACV Scalp Scrub is a physical exfoliant that utilizes pink Himalayan Sea Salt to scrub away impurities. Think of the ACV Scalp Scrub like a gritty face scrub and the ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox like an at home peel.
    How long do I have to leave the ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox on my scalp?
    We recommend 8-10 minutes for the active ingredients to unclog the hair follicles. It is important not to exceed 10 minutes.
    If I leave it on for longer than 10 minutes, will it affect my scalp or hair in any way?
    Because of the Salicylic Acid, we don't advise leaving it on for longer than 10 minutes. When left on the skin or scalp for a long period, Salicylic Acid can cause irritation or discomfort. In this case, moderation is key.
    If I apply this to damp hair, will it work the same way?
    You will still receive many of the same scalp detoxifying benefits, however it's much easier to apply the formula and target the scalp on dry hair.
    I feel a tingling sensation — is that normal?
    Yes! The ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox has menthol in it to stimulate blood circulation and promote healthy hair growth.
    Can anyone use this product?
    Yes! This is made for all hair types and textures. It gently exfoliates the scalp with apple cider vinegar and salicylic acid but still keeps the pH of the scalp balanced. If you have any questions if salicylic acid is right for you or if you are pregnant and/or nursing, we suggest consulting your doctor before use.
    Will the ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox help me with scalp issues like dermatitis and psoriasis?
    It can! The ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox has salicylic acid and fruit enzymes to help gently exfoliate the scalp. However, we always recommend consulting with your doctor first if you have any skin conditions.
    Will the ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox strip or fade color?
    No, it contains color safe ingredients.
    When should I use the ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox?
    We recommend using the ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox once a week.
    Should I pull the ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox through the mid-lengths and ends of my hair?
    No, the product is meant to be applied directly to the scalp to help clarify the scalp and hair follicles.
    Is the ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox fragranced? Does it smell like apple cider vinegar?
    The ACV Exfoliating Scalp Detox has no fragrance added. That said, it does have a subtle minty aroma due to the menthol in the formula.

    “Detox your scalp the kinder, gentler way — because the Exfoliating Scalp Detox uses fruit enzymes and salicylic acid to dissolve away build-up instead of mechanically scrubbing, it's a gentle alternative for those who don't like or are easily irritated by traditional scalp scrubs.”
