each ingredient helps to hydrate and nourish your scalp, as well as your body.

this recipe is enough for 1 scalp application and 1 consumable smoothie.

  • 1/2 cucumber – high in silica and water content; hydrates and boosts shine
  • small handful of spinach – rich in biotin; building block for hair/skin/nails and encourages growth
  • 1/2 inch ginger – contains essential vitamins that promote hair growth
  • 1/2 cup papaya – high in vitamin C; hydrates scalp and nourishes follicles to prevent excess shedding
  • 1/2 cup blueberries – rich in bioflavanoids; promotes circulation and boosts shine
  • 1/2 cup strawberries – rich in biotin and vitamins; nourishes scalp and encourages growth

blend all ingredients together. apply mix to scalp and allow to sit for 30 to 60 minutes. immediately consume the leftovers, if desired.

note 1 – i used fresh fruit so water wasn’t needed to get it to blend.
note 2 – blueberries could temporarily stain your scalp if you’re especially pale (holla) but it easily rinses out.

enjoy your double-duty smoothie!

  1. Hey Alex, just wondering what you’re current choice is for deodorant. Are you still using the homemade coconut oil mixture or have you found a new go to?

    1. hey love! sorry for the delayed reply. i’ve recently moved out of the US and have been using schmidt’s deo for the past few weeks until i can source crunchy ingredients in my new city. it’s done pretty well. the only complaint i have is i can’t use it every day or my armpits get irritated. every other day has suited me fine for now, but i hope to get back on the coco oil train here soon. i only moved with 2 suitcases so lots of things were purged. whew! hope this helps.

  2. Lately I’m getting lot of dandruff and it’s yucky….. hopefully this smoothie will help with my problem
